Pulse is a rhythmic oscillation of arteries that coincides with the work of the heart muscle. It is quite easy to measure it. To do this, you should put your fingers to your wrist and feel for the blood artery, which is located slightly above the thumb. Measurement of the pulse helps to analyze the general condition of the cardiovascular system. How does the pulse change in a dream? You can find the answer to this question in the sections of this article.
Normal heart rate
It is believed that the heart rate in a sleeping person should be slightly lower than in a waking person. This is because the body is in a calm state during the time period of sleep. Heart rate fluctuations can become slower even in those moments when a person is just preparing to go to the kingdom of Morpheus. Heart rate indicators in a dream most often depend on physical data, age or state of the nervous system. However, many experts are of the opinion that the pulse of an awake person should be 8-10% higher than that of a sleeping person.
5 phases of sleep directly affect the heart rate of people. The initial 4 phases dominate the time period when the body gradually goes into a state of complete relaxation. For a large number of people, this process takes about 80% of the time spent on sleep.
The fifth phase is called the REM sleep phase. During its course, the heart rhythm can significantly change and affect the course of physiological processes in the human body. The pulse in a dream, when the REM sleep phase prevails, increases, the respiratory rate becomes higher, sweat intensely begins to be released.
Israeli scientists have hypothesized that if the pulse in a dream does not get lower, then this phenomenon increases the risk of a person’s death by more than two times. According to the opinion, in such a "rhythm" of sleep you can live only seven years. The results of research work by specialists from Israel also argue that people with extra pounds or suffering from symptoms of diabetes and hypertension are more prone to this problem.
The correct measurement of the pulse of a sleeping person
To measure the fluctuations of arteries associated with the work of the heart of a sleeping person, one of his close people should calculate the rhythmic tremors of the artery on his wrist. You can also take heart rate measurements using a device specially equipped for this, equipped with an alarm clock.
A smart heart rate monitor is able to accurately calculate the heart rate of a person in a state of sleep and wake him up at the right time. While the owner or owner of this heart rate monitor is in the realm of Morpheus, he is actively working: fixes the position of the body, builds schedules, determines the phases of sleep. And then he chooses the ideal time for awakening and wakes up his master or mistress with the help of a light vibration.
Why does the heart rate during sleep increase
Sleeping people often see colored dreams that can lead to an increase in heart rate. They can dream both pleasant dreams and nightmares that negatively affect the psyche. Dreams of this kind can provoke a surge in pressure.
An increase in heart rate in a dream can also cause:
- Malfunctioning thyroid gland.
- Prolonged stress.
- Intoxication of the body.
- Impaired blood circulation.
- Internal bleeding.
- Not enough water in the body.
Heartbeat baby in a dream
The pulse in children in the daytime and evening has significant differences. In order to measure its performance with maximum accuracy, measurements should be made at the same time for several days. Parents need to put the baby in bed and take into account all the nuances of measuring children's heart rate.
- The child's pulse should have the same indicators on the left and right hand. If they are different, this phenomenon may indicate a circulatory problem and serve as a sign of the disease.
- When measuring it, you should take into account the baby's body temperature, which can increase heart rate.
- The pulse in a child’s sleep (the age category and state of the baby’s health affect his indicators) can undergo significant changes.
- The pulse in children during sleep should become lower.
The norm of the pulse in a dream directly depends on the physiological state of sleeping people. Measure heart contractions in the daytime and evening. This allows you to diagnose the body and identify any deviations. It’s not possible to immediately determine whether a person is sick or not by heart rate alone. They can only give a hint if there is a threat of illness, or if your health condition is not a concern. A constant high or very low pulse in a dream often signals the presence of a certain pathology in the body. It is impossible to identify any disease without qualified specialist assistance, you should not postpone the visit to the doctor.
