# How Many Times Does The Heart Beat In A Person's Lifetime?

If you are healthy enough to maintain the average 72 bpm for 80 years your heart will beat 3,027,456,000 during your lifespan.

72 x 60 x 24 x 365 x 80
bpm x min x hr x days x year

The average adult heart beats around 72 times a minute, 1440 minutes in a day,103,000 times a day.The average life span is 78 yrs. Making about 3 billion beats and 40 million a yr.

Average heart rate = 70bmp (beats per minute).
Average lifespan for male, (world avg. 2008)  66 years

70 beats per min. X 60 min = 4,200 beats per hour
4200 beats per hours x 24 hours = 100,800 beats per day
100,800 beats per day x 365 days = 36,792,000 beats per year.
36,792,000 beats per year x 66 years =  2,428,272,000 beats in a lifetime.

This all depends on how long that person lives for, but if we take the average person surviving the average age of a human life-span (approximately 80 years), then the average persons heat will be a staggering three billion times! However, some people have what is known as a rapid heartbeat. This is where the heart works overtime and beats faster than it should.
A rapid heart beat or palpitations as they are sometimes called, are an awareness of your own heartbeat, usually because the heartbeat seems irregular, or unusually rapid, or in some other way "different" to normal. An abnormal heart rhythm is referred to as an arrhythmia.
Normally you are not aware of your heart beating at all. The heart beats in response to an electrical stimulus - a bit like the way a car engine fires in response to a spark from a spark plug, and palpitations usually stem from a problem in this electrical system that generates the heartbeat. The heart muscle can continue to contract effectively even if the electrical system is "misfiring" from time to time.
People have described their palpitations in lots of different ways, but there are some common patterns such as, it feels like the heart has stopped (although it hasn't) and the heart feels fluttery in the chest,
Palpitations may be associated with feelings of anxiety or panic; it is normal to feel the heart thumping when you are terrified of something, but it may be difficult sometimes for people to know which came first, the palpitations or the panic feeling. Unfortunately, since it can take some time before a clear diagnosis is made in a patient complaining of palpitations, people are sometimes told initially that the problem is anxiety.
Stressful situations cause an increase in the level of stress hormones, such as adrenaline, circulating in the blood, and there are some types of abnormal heart rhythm that can be stimulated by adrenaline excess, or by exercise. It may be possible to diagnose these sorts of palpitations by performing simple tests, such as an exercise test, while monitoring the ECG.
Some types of abnormal heart rhythm seem to be affected by posture, and you may notice that standing up straight after bending over provokes a rapid heart rate. Often these attacks can be abolished again by lying down. Many people, if not all of us, are more aware of the heartbeat when lying quietly in bed at night. This is partly because our attention is not focussed on other things, but also because the slower heart beat at rest can allow more premature beats to occur.

That is a very good explanation, how do you know all this?

That is a perfect explanation you have truly helped the scientific universe
Average life time of a human being is 52 years.As a healthy heart beat of a human being is 72 beats per minute,so it is as follows

in 1 min = 72
in 1 hour = 72 * 60 = 4320
in 1 day = 72 * 60 *24 = 103680
in 1 year = 72 * 60 * 24 * 365 = 37843200
in Avg life span = 72 * 60 * 24 * 365 * 52 = 1967846400

I just wanted to say that if we were to only live for 30,000 hours we would all die at the age of about 4 we actually have about around 3,000,000,000 heart beats in us on average. Thats with an average of 72 beats per min. For 80 years

2 and half a billion times

Average lifespan for an person in the United states is actually 78 so add another 1 billion beats
thanked the writer.
Using an average heart rate of 72 beats per minute, the heart beats 4320 times per hour.
*One site reports the average lifespan to be 30,000 hours.

30,000 * 4320 = approx 129,600,000 beats over the "average" lifetime

*Obviously, both heart rate and life expectancy can differ by geographic region/lifestyle, heredity, health, etc. So this is quite rough.

A heart in an average lifetime is expected to beat over 100 million times!

Actually  there is more than 129,600,000 there is way more cause I mean you need to know the ag of how many heart you had when you died I  mean you could be 100 when you die you could be 12 when you die
so thank please vote  if this is good

The average normal heartbeat of an adult is about 72 times per minute.
thanked the writer.
Neither are correct IMO... I read we have 3 million beats per year on average... The number is going to vary greatly depending on health issues, people have different average heart rates, some beat slower, some faster....

So I wouldnt trust any of these answers
