How to Calculate Your EKG Rate

Your EKG rate can be a helpful indicator of your heart health. It’s a good idea to know how to calculate your EKG rate so that you can keep track of your heart health and be aware of any changes.

There are a few different ways to calculate your EKG rate but the most common and simplest method is to count the number of QRS complexes on your EKG tracing over a 6-second interval and multiply that number by 10. To get an accurate count it’s best to use a full EKG tracing that shows all of the QRS complexes.

Once you have your count simply multiply it by 10 to get your EKG rate. For example if you counted 20 QRS complexes in a 6-second interval your EKG rate would be 200 beats per minute (bpm).

It’s important to note that your EKG rate can vary depending on a number of factors including your level of activity stress anxiety etc. so it’s best to calculate your EKG rate at different times of day and under different conditions to get a more complete picture of your heart health.

If you’re concerned about your EKG rate or have any questions be sure to talk to your doctor.
