well theres loadsa reasons why it could have been that high im sure thats not your normal, to get your correct heartrate its best to check when you've just woke up.
You were probably a bit nervous at the time or had moved about a lot

Mine is around 50-70. (resting)

if you had been exercising, or shocked your heart rate will increase. Also the stress of having it taken can make it increase as well.

Just measured - 60 on the dot. Scary - it followed the second hand on my clock round.

Med1 - re-measure it sometime and see. I expect it was some sort of nerves or tension or something. 112 is too high to be walking around with every day..

Is it the bronchodilators that do that? (the increased heart rate)

Whenever you take your heart rate it normally speeds up a bit because you are concious and nervous of what you are doing.

Mine is generally around 60 when resting.
