World Heart Day is celebrated widely around the world on September 29th. It is celebrated to provide exposure to the public about the rate of cardiovascular disease, which is very alarming at this time.

The standard heart rate is between 60 to 90 per minute, but this rate can change depending on several factors; for example, the heart rate will be higher after exercising. Heart rate will also be higher during fever, anaemia or lack of red blood cells, and pregnancy. The heart will beat slowly due to medication factors or the heart’s own failure to function.
