To investigate the sex- and age-specific association between resting heart rate and hypertension in rural adult residents of Henan province. At baseline, a total of 20 194 participants were randomly selected from Xin'an County of Henan province between July 2007 and August 2008. After excluding participants with hypertension or without resting heart rate data at baseline, and participants died or without hypertension outcome or diagnosed as gestational hypertension during follow-up between July 2013 and October 2014, 10 212 participants were finally included in this study. Multiple linear regression model was used to examine the association between resting heart rate and change of blood pressure. Logistic regression model was used to estimate the association between resting heart rate and risk of hypertension. There were 2 059 new hypertensive cases (839 male) during the 6 years follow-up. After controlling for potential confounders, per 5 beats/minutes increases in resting heart rate was associated with 0.18 mmHg (1 mmHg=0.133 kPa) (95 0.01-0.36 mmHg, 0.046) absolute increase in systolic blood pressure and 7% higher risk of developing hypertension in women (95 1.03-1.11, 0.05). Compared with resting heart rate<70 beats/minutes, the adjusted for 76-82 and>82 beats/minutes groups were 1.39 (95 1.18-1.63, 0.05) and 1.22 (95 1.02-1.45, 0.05), respectively. For both age groups, increased resting heart rate was positively associated with risk of hypertension in women(=1.05(95% 1.01-1.10), <0.05 (the women those <60 years); =1.14(95% 1.04-1.25), <0.05 (the women those≥60 years). However, no significant association was found between resting heart rate and hypertension in male residents. Increased resting heart rate is associated with high risk of hypertension in women who live in rural area, especially in elder women of this cohort.

The association of resting heart rate (RHR) and hypertension in adults is unclear. We aimed to perform a meta-analysis of cohort studies to clarify the association.
Although resting heart rate is thought to be a generalizable risk factor for aggression, very little research has examined whether this relationship varies by race. We addressed this limitation using ...
Heart rate is routinely measured as part of the clinical examination but is rarely acted upon unless it is well outside a population-based normal range. With wearable sensor technologies, heart rate c...
Both resting high-frequency heart rate variability (HF-HRV) and executive functioning (EF) are individual differences implicated in vulnerability to a wide range of adverse outcomes. The overlapping s...
Higher resting heart rate is a risk factor for arterial cardiovascular diseases. We assessed whether higher heart rate is a risk factor for venous thromboembolism (VTE).
This randomized controlled trial will examine whether behavioral neurocardiac training with heart rate variability biofeedback (BNT) augments reduction in ambulatory daytime and 24-hour SB...
The hypothesis is that the treatment with ivabradine will increase pVO2 after 16 weeks of treatment compared to baseline in the heart transplant recipient population with elevated resting ...

The heart rate of the FETUS. The normal range at term is between 120 and 160 beats per minute.
Methods, techniques, and processes by which HEART RATE is measured.
A class of drugs whose main indications are the treatment of hypertension and heart failure. They exert their hemodynamic effect mainly by inhibiting the renin-angiotensin system. They also modulate sympathetic nervous system activity and increase prostaglandin synthesis. They cause mainly vasodilation and mild natriuresis without affecting heart rate and contractility.
A pumping mechanism that duplicates the output, rate, and blood pressure of the natural heart. It may replace the function of the entire heart or a portion of it, and may be an intracorporeal, extracorporeal, or paracorporeal heart. (Dorland, 28th ed)
