Abstract

Background:  The Background of Study: Abnormality in heart rate is commonly observed in pre and post-menopausal women. Recovery of the heart rate is early in post-menopausal women which influences there fatigue level. Method: It was a cross sectional study conducted on 40 pre and 40 post-menopausal women. Heart rate recovery was measured using pulse –oximeter and a 6minute walk test was taken for evaluation in which patients were asked to walk for 6 minutes and immediately, after 1 minute and 2 minute vitals Heart Rate measured. Result: It is concluded that statistically there is no significant difference in heart rate recovery in early and late postmenopausal women. But clinically there is abnormal heart rate recovery found in late postmenopausal women than the early postmenopausal women. Conclusion:  Normal Heart Rate Recovery is observed in pre-menopausal women and abnormal Heart Rate Recovery found in postmenopausal women.
