About 100 beats per minute.


Approximately 70 beats per minute resting


between 60-100 beats per minute on average


A heart rate anywhere from 40 to 180 can be quite normal. The average is 60-80.


The heartbeat, naturally, is by no means constant. The rate can vary from minute to minute, depending on stress and body temperature. In one famous, if rather grisly, experiment, a team of researchers in Utah in 1939 took an electrocardiogram of a man about to be executed by a firing squad. His heartbeat increased from 72 to 180 just before the shots were fired. Afterward, of course, the rate dropped sharply.

A rate of 72 to 80 beats per minute is generally considered normal for a healthy human being at rest. At birth, the rate is in the neighborhood of 130 beats per minute, with the figure decreasing through adolescence and then showing a slight upswing in old age.


I love this stuff. My daughter, who says she's scared of skeletons, maintains that there is no skeleton in her body, merely "2 angry ghosties." Not sure where she got that one...

Anyway, your question is a bit ambiguous. Wiki says:

When resting, the average adult human heart beats at about 70 bpm (males) and 75 bpm (females); however, this rate varies among people and can be significantly lower in athletes. The infant/neonatal rate of heartbeat is around 130-150 bpm, the toddler's about 100–130 bpm, the older child's about 90–110 bpm, and the adolescent's about 80–100 bpm.


It depends on age, etc, but for an adult 60-100 beats per minute. Thanks!!

Oh, and none of the organs in this giveaway are actually guts. Half of them aren't even located in the abdomen.


Between 60 and 100 beats per minute is considered a normal resting sinus rate for adults.


60-100 beats per minute.


40 to 180


72 to 80 beats per minute resting heart rate is average. :)


According to I heart guts, the average heart beats around 100,000 times per DAY. The number of times the heart beats per minute, or pulserate, varies depending on age, fitness level, activity, stress, and other factors. Normal pulserate for an adult is usually between 60-80 beats per minute.


Hi there,
As others have said, the heart beats 60 to 100 times a minute. CUTE stuffed animals!


Around 70 bpm. Love the 'guts'!
olaATriosDOTcom


Well, thanks to the internet this info is pretty easy to find for us non-medical types. My answer mirrors the others who've left comments - 60-80 BPM.
Thanks! =)
Paulie


The heart beats on average 70 bpm for men and 75 for women. Although this is by no means consistent on an individual basis. For example, my heart beats on average 64 bpm. Guess I am just special :)

love the dolls though....


Depends on age too...
(according to wiki, but close to my med references too)

newborn 130
3 months 150
6 months 135
1 year 125
2 years 115
3 years 100
4 years 100
6 years 100
8 years 90
9 years 95
12 years 85
Adult 60-100


As has been said, bpm varies. At rest the average is between 50-100 bpm.


The resting heart beats 50-70 times a minute in the average adult.

Those are awesome stuffed 'animals'.

Richard


80 beats per minute


It varies person to person, but generally 60-90 bpm.

Love the dolls!


Since it varies for everyone, I'll tell you that -my- heart beats 80 times per minute :)


Between 60 and 100bpm in general, though higher for newborns (~130). Pre-natal, the foetus' heart rate is ~140-150bpm.


60-100 beats per minute.
Those are sooo cute! Now I wish they'd make a small intestine for my son with celiac disease... :)


Are we talking about human hearts here?? :)

If so, it beats on average about 72 bpm. BUT everyone is different on the bell curve.


When resting, the average adult human heart beats at about 70 bpm (males) and 75 bpm (females); however, this rate varies among people and can be significantly lower in athletes. The infant/neonatal rate of heartbeat is around 130-150 bpm, the toddler's about 100–130 bpm, the older child's about 90–110 bpm, and the adolescent's about 80–100 bpm.


70-75 is apparently normal for adults, infants 130-150, toddler 110-130, child 90-110, adolescent 80-100.

Please enter me in the contest, my baby would love to chew on a lung.


An adult heart beats on average between 60-80 x per minute.


60-100 beats per minute on average


for adult it should be btwn 60-100 on average.
a new born is around 130.
And an elephant is only 30 times per minute!


70
I'm going with 70 ;-)
kthnxbye


The heart beats between 60-100 at rest.
And according to iheartguts.com (which has a typo...), a heart beats approx 100,000 times a day therefore 69.4 times per minute.

hahaha

Good luck everyone! Guts are cool.


I love these..so cute. It's like "Oh honey...do you wanna sleep with Mr Bear tonight or good old Mr. Kidney. HAHA!

My answer:

At birth: 130
Normal Healthy Person: 72-80


About 72-80 beats per minute, on average.


My heart beats at ~70bpm, higher when I am happy around my babies.


Yesterday, at the peditrician, my 4-year-old's heart was beating 104 times/minute.
And same 4-year-old had an argument with the Dr. as to whether the spleen was part of the digestive system or not.
I know it's random, but pick us anyway.....


For whatever reason my 1st comment wasn't approved with the answer, but my 2nd comment was. Ridiculous, and I'm not going to type it ALL again, so here's the basics:

BPM is, on average 70 for an adult male and 75 for an adult female.


Around 60-80 bpm is average. :-)


These are the best! I'm gonna get one for my brand new baby girl.

now then, heart beating - anything between 65 to 85 is normal.
Your mileage may vary!


72 to 80 bpm.

For me, however, I'm thinking it might be less. My son arrives in February and I've never felt so relaxed. Interesting, because I’ve always been a worrier (we could also call this an overactive imagination) but as soon as I found out I was pregnant, it stopped. Maybe that was because I knew whatever emotional insanity I put myself through would also be experienced by my kid, but also, moreover, because I realized that nothing was as big of a deal anymore. He was the biggest of deals. There was no point in getting all crazy about a broken traffic light, or a late paper, or a misunderstood conversation when this little human being would be hanging out with me for the rest of my life. It was really freeing, actually, a huge relief because I’ve read that women often start worrying more during pregnancy and I felt really lucky to have such an overwhelming sense of calm, of “Nothing else matters, it’s just me and my husband and our kid.” I know I have a lot to learn yet, but right now everything feels so peaceful.

Maybe I'm beating at 65 bpm?


An adult heart beats (on average) between 60 to 80 times per minute.

Please randomly select me!

In the average human, the heart beats at about 70 bpm (beats per minute) in men, and 75 bpm with females.


I'm going to say 60-100...sometimes mine beats faster than normal but I have an addiction to caffeine so that's probably most of my problem.


Great contest! I concur with everyone else, 60-100 bpm.


I've read it's 72-80 BPM at rest, but mine was a lot faster when my 3-yr-old cut her own bangs off last night!

That heart is a stuffed toy. It doesn't beat at all. Tricky.


Somewhere between 60 and 100 beats per minute

kelli


about 70 beats per minute.


Hm, this must be a trick question but I can't figure out the trick (and Halloween is over anyway). Unless the trick answer is zero because a plush heart can't beat.

Anyway, according to the NIH, "Normally the [human] heart beats between 60-100 times per minute."


A rate of 72 to 80 beats per minute is generally considered normal for a healthy human being at rest. At birth, the rate is in the neighborhood of 130 beats per minute, with the figure decreasing through adolescence and then showing a slight upswing in old age.


About 70 beats is average

According to Wikipedia.org, (and I've heard this before as well), the average human heart beats appx. 72 beats per minute.


It varies. Normal adult range is 60-80 bpm, but my 3 month olds is around 145...

And we would pick the heart!


Well mine is 90 bpm.. :)


A normal heartbeat falls into the 60-100 beats per minute range, with the "typical" rate of 70-75 beats per minute being pretty standard.

With the hubz in med school, these would make the perfect holiday gift! Thanks!


Must. Have. Guts.

60-80 bpm average, but 40-100 is a-OK!


The human heart beats anywhere from 60-100 beat per minute, depending on various factors. Amazing, eh?

Well, the stuffed one: 0

Otherwise, at rest, normally around 70.

What a fun prize. The average is 60 and 100 beats per minute.


the average bpm is 60-100


60-100 bpm depending!
oh my goodness kidney is adorable!


The heart starts at 130 BPM when you are born, goes to 150 BPM by three months, then steadily tapers off to between 60-100 BPM when you become an adult (age 13+).

Considering I've got a chronic kidney disease, I'm hoping to at least get a plushy replacement!


Well that all depends on how old you are... newborns 130 beats per min.. adults 72 to 80 beats per minute. :)

At least in a normal human under resting conditions.


the adult heart beats 60 to 120 beats per min.


60-100 bpm


The heart beats between 60- 100 beats per minute.


70 beats per minute is average, although the range can be from 60-100.


Average beats per minute is 70 for men, 75 for women


Adult at rest heart rate is around 72-80 beats a minute. Of course this is at rest and no stress.


An average of 60-90 beats per minute. (Average is slightly higher for women.)


Adult human is 60-100 beats per minute. Coincidentally the heart is my favorite!


The heart beats around 60-100 BPM, but that varies depending on the person.


Not to be a smartalec but there are so many variables to this answer. All depends on your age, fitness level, etc. Average for an adult is 60-100 per minute.


Between 60 - 100 BPM for adults, but when you're a fetus, that's a whole 'nother story. If you're a boy, it's probably 120 or less, if you're a girl, it's probably around 120 or more. So they say.


Well, like anything human, "normal" is kind of a nebulous term. The conventional standard heart rate for a healthy adult is about 70 beats per minute (BPM), but in the absence of any known disease or suspicion of disease, one probably wouldn't be very worried if the HR was a bit higher than that. (80 BPM is not a big deal, for example, but 100 BPM probably is.) Furthermore, trained athletes (particularly distance runners and swimmers) tend to have very low resting heart rates, occasionally tipping below 60 BPM. They're still pushing enough blood through their bodies to stay alive; it's just that their hearts are efficient and strong enough to do that with fewer strokes per minute. Don't forget that children have faster heart rates than adults, and in utero heart rates are well into the triple digits.

....But anyway, I guess if you're looking for a one-word answer, that answer would be "70." :-)


An adult heart beats 60-100 bpm on average. I love these cute little organs!


60 - 100 bpm. I would love these to add to my stuffed ailments - common cold and kidney stone.


an average human heart beats 60-100 times per minute...however, an average mouse heart beats approximately 700 times per minute


Number of beats per minute is dependent on gender, age, current activity and overall cardiovascular health.

As a physically active adult female, I have a resting heart rate of 48 BPM.

If you're looking for a maximum heart rate average, one can use the following formula:
226 - your age for women or 220 - your age for men


60-100 bpm- Interesting stuff- Definitely unique;)


The average heart rate is 60-80 bpm


Tough question. 60-100 is the avewrage.


approx 70 - 100 bpm
cute stuffies!


72 to 80 beats is a normal range


60-100 bpm; better if between 60-80, on average.


The average adult's heart beats between 60 & 100 times every minute.

Great site!

Den-


On the Straight Dope, it says that the heart beats 72 to 80 beats per minute in the normal healthy range.

It varies depending on whether you are resting or exercising. Even medication can effect it. I have had a-fib and was in the hospital for a week. At one point my heart was beating 189 beats per minute.

However,

Normal resting heart rates ranges 40 to 100 beats per minute.


I would love to win the heart one!!
