What is the normal pulse rate for women?


Dr. Larry Weinrauch of HealthCentral says that the normal heart rate for healthy women is between 60 and 80 after lying down for 30 minutes. For men, it is between 50 and 70.

The Medical News Today website states that the normal resting rate for adults, as published by the U.S. National Institutes of Health, is between 60 and 100 beats per minute. However, Dr. Weinrauch says this may vary because people seldom count them while actually at rest. An article published by WebMD says that while it is true that 60 to 100 beats is the normal heart rate range for adults, falling in the upper end of that range may signal health problems.
