What are PR and BPM? PR BPM normal range in oximeter

Posted By Mohit Singh     October 28, 2022    


Quarantine, Pandemic, Viral Load, Oximeter – the Covid-19 pandemic has familiarized us with several types of terminologies. What used to be a staple in most hospitals has become common in homes. Oximeters became a quintessential mandate, given that people gauged their physical well-being with the heart rate and oxygen levels in the body.

Even though we have come so many months into the pandemic, people are still confused about the readings on an oximeter. Terms like PR (pulse rate) and BPM (beats per minute) sound confusing.

What is the Normal PR BPM Rate?

When you check your pulse rate or beats per minute on an oximeter, it analyzes the pulse alongside the arterial oxygen saturation. The device uses two different wavelengths of light through the finger to assess the pulse rate and the oxygen levels in the blood. It is a non-invasive procedure.

A pulse oximeter is crucial among patients with heart conditions and respiratory complications like COPD, asthma, etc. With fast and reliable readings, it isn’t surprising that pulse oximeter has become more mainstream for home patient monitoring.

Several factors affect the heart rate. It can peak and rise during a run or exercise, reducing and staying low due to certain cardiovascular complications.

However, the standard studies suggest that the pr bpm normal range in oximeter in healthy adults is between 60-100 beats per minute.

Compared to men, women (after their puberty) generally have a higher heart rate.

On the contrary, athletes and highly sporty people with low body fat percentages have 40-50 beats per minute heart rates.
