Heart Sound Recorder
The Heart Sound Recorder (HSR) is a computer based, low risk, general wellness monitor which uses a specialized sensor to observe heart sounds. During this simple process, the sensor is placed over each of the four valve areas of the heart in order to graph sound and movement.
The Heart Sound Recorder is an important tool used to evaluate your overall health and allows you to follow the progress you are making while under the proper wellness care at Healthy Out West.
Your Nervous System Controls The Rate
Your nervous system controls the RATE at which your heart beats. One side of your nervous system (sympathetic) manages your "fight or flight" response, which can accelerate your heart rate. The other side (parasympathetic) manages your "rest and digest" response, which can slow your heart rate. You need a healthy balance between the two.
Work To Rest Ratio
The RHYTHM of your heart should reveal a specific work to rest ratio on the graph. Your heart should be resting twice as long as it is working. Observations are made to see if your heart is working too hard or not working hard enough.
