What is the maximum heart rate per age in a heart rate nuclear stress test?


Answer by  mb (5482)

To figure out your maximum heart rate just subtract your age from 220 beats per minute. So a 30 year old's maximum safe heart rate is 190. Above that number is considered dangerous.


Answer by  wyeth (435)

A maximum heart rate of 220 minus your age gives a rough guide, but the general health and fitness of the person being tested must be considered and requires the presence of an expert capable of recognizing and managing any signs of heart strain or general stress.Conditions such as angina,breathlessness,or pain of any sort would be concerning.


Answer by  Jalaine11 (2043)

The way to figure out you maximum heart range is to use this formula: 220-age=maximum heart rate. So if you are 50 your maximum heart rate would be 170.
