BP Range

There are different baselines in Europe and USA. But normally,

BP range between 60/90 mmHg to 140/90 mmHg is considered NORMAL for the age group 12 to 60 years.

BP in the range of 100/80 mmHg to 120/90 mmHg is considered a Gold standard.

For people, more than 60 years above 140/90 mmHg is also considered normal depending on their health conditions.

Heart Rate

Resting Heart Rate in the range o 50 to 100 beats per minute (BPM)  is considered normal resting. It’s called resting Heart Rate. Generally, a lower heart rate at rest is considered as healthy heart function and better fitness. This range is for the age group of 12 to 60 years.

Resting heart rate of 100 to 120 BPM is also normal most of the time. But it’s advisable to reduce heartbeat by doing Yoga, Meditation.

For kids below 12 years of age, the normal resting heart rate is between 70 to 110 BPM.

SPO2 (Oxygen Saturation)

It is to be noted that  Oxygen Saturation level is not constant and varies according to the person’s health condition. Range below are

Oxygen Saturation levels of 95% – 100%  are considered NORMAL for the age group below 65 years (younger adults).

Generally, older adults (above 65 years of age) typically have lower Oxygen Saturation levels than younger adults.  So Oxygen Saturation level of 90 to 95% is also considered an Acceptable level for people more than 65 years of age.

During COVID time, it was advised to consult a doctor if Oxygen Saturation goes below 92%. Thus, it is important to understand both normal readings and the underlying state of health associated with certain conditions to interpret oxygen saturation levels and changes in these levels.

People who are obese and/or have conditions such as lung and cardiovascular diseases, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, congenital heart disease, and sleep apnea tend to have lower oxygen saturation levels.

During COVID time, it was advised to consult a doctor if Oxygen Saturation goes below 92%  for all the age groups.
