Just wondering? If your O2 is 92 and your resting heart rate is around 100, is it safe to exercise above a heartrate of 160? Any opinions?

check your O2 while working out, if it falls below 90....ease up a
bit.<br>

Many cystics have high resting heart rate.....My heart rate sky
rockets when I work out, but I am careful to watch my sats.<br>

My resting is around 90 and goes up to around 175 every time I run. But, if I were to ease up on my running, I wouldn't feel like I was working as hard, so I think its different for everyone.

I think the rule of thumb for a max heart rate is to take 220 and minus your age and that is the number you NEVER want to go above. For example, 220-28=192 for my MAX HR. I usually take another 10 beats or so off this to account for having CF, so if I go above 180, I slow down.

Honestly, I don't test my O2 when running cause my finger is never steady to get a good reading, but this would be awesome info. to have.

I agree with everyone else, that we (cfs) have a higher resting heart rate then the so called "nomral" population. The reason why is because even at rest our body is working over time, just the sheer act of breathing is like running a marathon

pre tx I had a resting heart rate of around 120+

now I have a resting heart rate of around 80-90

monitor how you feel in yourself, in regards to breathlessness etc

I found pre tx before I went on O2 full time that when I exercised my sats would drop dramatically as would my heart rate, my heart rate would drop to around 50 which meant my heart was having trouble...

depending on your age, stick to your recommended heart rate for working out, I think if I remember rightly that for someone in their 30s its around 150

This is a pretty cool link that tells you how to calculate your max HR. I'm sure with CF, it varies, so talking to one's doc is key.
