Resting Heart Rate (Read 1603 times)


A Dance with Monkeys

    An off-the-wall thought.  Training makes our muscles sore.  After a hard race, our heart muscle would also be sore, if it had nerves to tell us, right?

      But why is this important in the least?

       

      I don't think I said "important".

      I was thinking that it was "interesting".


      But, to answer the importance question as best I can with as little as I know... "I don't know".  I'm not a doctor.  I'd like to know, for curiousity sake, only) whether it's important.

        Why is it more interesting than respiratory rate or blink rate?

          trent, stop badgering. if people want to be interested in their heart rates, what's it to you?

            Right.  Jeff gets it.  Heart Rate is a classical confounder.  The cause of better health outcomes is NOT the Heart Rate, but aerobic conditioning.  Aerobic conditioning causees a lower heart rate and better health outcomes.

             

             

            Haven't taken Stats in years, but went back to look more in detail to the word "confounder" to better understand what you wrote....

             

            So, I think you're saying that eventhough the Resting Heart Rate is correlated to both the quality of health and the aerobic conditioning,   there isn't a cause / effect relationship between the HR / Quality of Health.  The HR is not a dependent variable to determine the quality of health.

             

            Dependent Variable: Aerobic Conditioning

            Independent Variable: Quality of Health

             

            if quality of health is poor, resting heart rate is high (inverse correlation)

             

            Quality of Health is dependent (in part) on the aerobic conditioning (higher aerobic conditioning leads to better health).  But, higher aerobic conditioning causes the resting HR to decrease.  Ultimately, though, the aerobic conditioning leads to better health outcomes.

             

            Understand (and I think I understood prior)

              Yes.

               

              Correct.


              Although the correlations among aerobic conditioning, HR and health outcomes are not perfect because there are numerous other factors that influence these as well.

                Why is it more interesting than respiratory rate or blink rate?

                 

                I'm glad I'm not paying for this doctor's visit Smile

                 

                In my entire life, I've never thought of blink rate (until you posted the question about an hour ago).  To me, it's not interesting.

                 

                Since we're answering questions by asking questions,

                Question #1: Why are some things interesting to some people, while other things are interesting to other people?

                 

                Question #2: I don't know whether you are "teaching" me or "asking me not to put focus on heart rate."  If I knew the answer to this question, I might feel more inclined to spend the next hour or two answering your questions.  So, are you teaching me or are you asking / advising me not to put focus on heart rate?

                 

                Thanks,

                  Oh, I'd say he's teaching you.

                    Why are bagels more interesting than "bagels"?

                    Passion is a rather frightening thing because if you have passion you don't know where it will take you.

                     

                    When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?


                    A Dance with Monkeys

                      Simply because of this:

                       

                      Why is a lower resting heart rate better than a higher resting heart rate?

                       

                      It is not better.  It is maybe an indicator of something better, but is not better per se.

                       

                      And so upon explaining that to you, you decided instead that it was, well, interesting to you.

                       

                      Whether it is interesting is entirely a personal experience, and so it is unclear why you would share that interest with the rest of the world.  So I asked.

                        Why are bagels more interesting than "bagels"?

                         

                        Actually, "bagels" are more interesting, while bagels are more gooder.

                          I'm fresh out of "bagels", but I'm finding Nilla Wafers quite interesting.

                          Passion is a rather frightening thing because if you have passion you don't know where it will take you.

                            like, BMI.  lower may indicate something better.

                             

                            a heartrate of 0 beats per minute and BMI of 0 are both vey bad things.

                              unclear? seriously? it's not like i have this socialisation thing down pat or anything, but i thought that sharing interests is a way that humans socialise. perhaps it's merely shareful chatter from one human to others. do you suspect of an organised agenda of disinformation dissemination?

                                I know that Doug's point is wrong (predestined # of beats...), but his 2nd post about the 23 hours at 50 and the 1 hour at 140 and comparing it to another person with 24 hours at 65 is pretty interesting.

                                 

                                interesting =/= important

                                 

                                he did start with interesting.
