In Brief A Heart rate, also known as pulse, is the number of times a person's heart beats per minute. The normal heart rate for adults ranges from 60 to 100 beats per minute (bpm), although this can vary depending on age, physical condition, and other factors. A low heart rate (bradycardia) is generally defined as a heart rate below 60 bpm, while a high heart rate (tachycardia) is defined as a heart rate above 100 bpm. Abnormal heart rates can be caused by various factors, such as exercise, stress, medical conditions, and medications.
Why Check? Heart rate is an important indicator of overall health and fitness, as it can provide information about the heart's ability to pump blood efficiently. A slow heart rate can indicate that the heart is not working efficiently, while a rapid heart rate can indicate an overactive thyroid, stress, or anemia. Regular screening will pick up any variations in your heart health before they become serious issues.
ACCURACY Heart Rate Reading Reading +/- 3 Beats per Minute What does this mean? It means that the Helfie AI Heart Rate algorithm's measurement of a person's heart rate may be up to 3 beats per minute higher or lower than the actual heart rate. This is referred to as the margin of error or the level of precision of the algorithm. It does not mean the algorithm is + or - 3 bmp inaccurate with every measure. On the occasions it may be, this is the range that it is likely to be incorrect. For purposes of checking symptoms, this is considered a relatively small error rate.
+ HRV Reading
As Helfie AI checks your Heart Rate, it also measures your Heart Rate Variability.
In Brief HRV is the measurement of the time between heartbeats. HRV is considered an important marker of overall cardiovascular health and can provide information about the functioning of the autonomic nervous system. The autonomic nervous system controls many automatic functions in the body, such as heart rate, blood pressure, and digestion.
Why Check? Checking your Heart Rate Variability (HRV) can help you monitor your cardiovascular health, stress levels, recovery, sleep quality, and physical performance. HRV provides insight into the functioning of the autonomic nervous system and cardiac function and can be used to detect changes in well-being and track progress in health and fitness.
ACCURACY Heart Rate Variability =/- 10ms What does this mean? It means that Helfie AI may produce a HRV measurement that is incorrect by up to 10 milliseconds. In other words, the HRV values generated by the algorithm may be off by as much as 10ms from the actual HRV values. A 10ms error rate in HRV measurement is relatively small.
AI readings for two other
key health indicators.
As Helfie AI checks your Heart Rate, it also measures your Respiratory Rate.
Why do we read this? When measuring someone's heart rate, it's important to also check their respiratory rate because the two are closely related. The respiratory rate refers to the number of breaths a person takes per minute and plays a crucial role in maintaining the body's oxygen supply. The heart rate responds to changes in the respiratory rate to ensure that the body receives enough oxygen and removes carbon dioxide efficiently. A change in one can affect the other and impact overall health. For example, if a person has a high respiratory rate but a low heart rate, it may indicate respiratory distress, while a high heart rate and low respiratory rate may indicate a problem with the heart or circulatory system. Helfie AI measuring both heart rate and respiratory rate becuase it provides a more comprehensive picture of a person's overall health.
About Respiratory Rate Respiratory rate is the number of breaths a person takes per minute. The normal respiratory rate for adults is between 12 and 20 breaths per minute, although this can vary depending on age, physical condition, and other factors.
Why Check? A low respiratory rate (bradypnea) is generally defined as a rate below 12 breaths per minute, while a high respiratory rate (tachypnea) is defined as a rate above 20 breaths per minute. Abnormal respiratory rates can be caused by various factors, such as exercise, stress, medical conditions, and medications. Monitoring respiratory rate is important for assessing a person's lung function and overall health. Changes in respiratory rate can indicate potential health issues, such as respiratory infections or metabolic disorders.
ACCURACY Respiratory Rate +/- 3 rpm What does this mean? It means that Helfie AI's respiratory rate measurements may be incorrect by up to 3 breaths per minute. In other words, the algorithm's respiratory rate measurements may be off by as much as 3 breaths per minute from the actual respiratory rate. This is small error rate.
As Helfie AI checks your Heart Rate, it also measures your
Why do we read this? It is important to check a person's blood oxygen levels along with their heart rate because the two are closely related. The heart pumps oxygen-rich blood throughout the body, so if a person's blood oxygen levels are low, their heart rate may increase to compensate for the decreased oxygen delivery. Conversely, if the heart rate is too high, the body may not be able to extract enough oxygen from the blood, leading to low blood oxygen levels. Helfie AI measures both becuase the heart rate and blood oxygen levels can provide a more complete picture of a person's cardiovascular health.
About Blood Oxygen Blood oxygen saturation, also known as oxygen saturation or SpO2, refers to the percentage of hemoglobin in the blood that is saturated with oxygen. Hemoglobin is the protein in red blood cells that carries oxygen from the lungs to the rest of the body.
Why Check? Blood oxygen saturation provides valuable information about the functioning of the respiratory and cardiovascular systems. Regular checks will let you stay on top of your: Respiratory Health: Blood oxygen saturation can be used to monitor respiratory health, as low oxygen saturation can indicate problems such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and pneumonia. Cardiac Health: Blood oxygen saturation can also be used to monitor cardiac health, as changes in oxygen saturation can indicate changes in cardiac function and may be an early warning sign of heart disease. High-Altitude Illness: At high altitudes, the air pressure and oxygen availability decreases, which can cause low blood oxygen saturation. Checking your blood oxygen saturation regularly when at high altitudes can help you detect and manage high-altitude illness. Sleep Apnea: Low blood oxygen saturation during sleep can be a sign of sleep apnea, a condition in which a person repeatedly stops breathing during sleep. Anesthesia Monitoring: Blood oxygen saturation is also monitored during surgery to ensure that the patient is receiving adequate oxygen and to detect any changes in cardiac or respiratory function.
ACCURACY Blood Oxygen Reading =/- 2% What does this mean? In other words, if Helfie's AI provides a Blood Oxygen reading that is incorrect, the maximum level of inaccuracy would be 2%. This is considered a small error rate.
Keep track of your hearts performance.
Each time you use Helfie to measure your your heart rate, every reading is auto-recorded and mapped in an easy to follow chart.
This chart gives you important insights into how your heart is performing over time, and alerts you to any irregularities.
Why this is Important Regular tracking of heart rate is an essential aspect of monitoring one's cardiovascular health. It is a vital tool for early detection and management of irregular heartbeats or tachycardia, which are common yet potentially life-threatening conditions. Heart rate is the number of times the heart beats per minute (bpm). Irregular heartbeats or tachycardia occur when the heart beats too fast, too slow, or with an irregular rhythm. These conditions can increase the risk of heart disease, stroke, and other serious health conditions. Regular tracking of heart rate levels and documenting the results and trends in a graph can help detect variations in heart rate, which may indicate underlying health conditions. Early detection of irregular heartbeats or tachycardia is essential for successful management and prevention of complications. By keeping a record of heart rate measurements, an individual can identify patterns and trends in their heart rate readings over time. A graph can be an effective tool to visually display this information and make it easier to spot any changes in heart rate levels. For instance, a graph can show whether heart rate has been consistently high or whether there have been fluctuations in heart rate levels. Regular tracking of heart rate can also help identify triggers that can lead to changes in heart rate levels, such as stress, medication, or physical activity. This information can then be used to modify one's lifestyle or medication regimen to better manage heart rate levels. In conclusion, regular tracking of heart rate and documenting the results and trends in a graph is a vital aspect of monitoring one's cardiovascular health. It can help detect variations in heart rate, which may indicate underlying health conditions, and enable early intervention and successful management. Therefore, it is recommended that individuals monitor their heart rate regularly and keep a record of their measurements over time.
