    Hi Calevans,

     

    I interviewed Dr. Mark Houston awhile back. Here's his answer to this question:

     

    Lisa Nelson RD: Is there a connection between blood pressure and heart rate?


    Dr. Houston: If blood pressure increases, normally the heart rate should decrease. However, in some patient with dysregulation of the autonomic nervous system the heart rate may increase with the blood pressure.

     

    According to Dr. Houston, blood pressure and heart rate (pulse) typically have an inverse relationship. When blood pressure increases, heart rate decreases and vice versa.

     

    All the best,

    Lisa Nelson RD
