Heart Rate and Pulse



Heart Rate and Pulse Introduction


The term "pulse" is a carryover from earlier times, and was used to evaluate the heart-rate. Today both heart-rate and pulse-rate should be assessed, since they may be different. The heart is auscultated for rate, rhythm and extra sounds, such as murmurs. Counting both heart-rate and pulse-rate is easily accomplished at the same time.
