Do not listen to some these people on here. I have a well trained cardiologist and I am not physically fit. Mine falls to 36bmp while sleeping and 3 of my cardiologists said that’s perfectly normal
It depends on your condition, level of physical training, health, and other factors. Let us check the spectrum of possible causes of such low heart rate. All is the question of accompanying symptoms. Do not underestimate some serious issues that can be related by such low heart rates.
- For a trained athlete, such heart rate during sleep is OK.
- For a person taking beta blockers prescribed by a cardiologist, it is OK as well.
- When you are not trained and do not take beta blockers, it would be always a good idea to visit a GP or cardiologist. There are many possible underlying issues.

It depends if you are fit or not. If you are aerobically fit then you should not be concerned. I run ultra marathons and my resting HR sitting during the day is low 40s and while sleeping gets to 36–40. If you are not awrobically fit then it could be concerning. There are a few causes of bradycardia that would be concerning and should be evaluated by a cardiologist. So if you are not a very active, healthy person I would advise you to see a physician.
First. Is that the reading you get from a fitness tracker? Research has shown that many are not that accurate.
That being said a heartrate of 39 means you are bracycardic. This can lead to formations of blood clots which is not a good thing to have.
See you your doctor for a sleep study, and while I am not a doctor, I would recommend taking a baby aspirin (87mg) to help reduce the possibility of a blood clotting.
You don’t need to be worried just because of a slow heart rate at night unless you are having blackouts or attacks of faintness. The usual cause is sinus bradycardia which is not dangerous.
Many people have rates dropping below 40 bpm and feel fine, especially athletes, but some people have symptoms including disturbed sleep at night, sleepiness, general anxiety, poor concentration and fatigue during the day and “difficulty in getting started” to do things. These symptoms are quite nonspecific but if there is no other cause they can be relieved by implantation of a pacemaker. This is controvers
0 bpm is too low. Smart answer I know. I’ve had patients, who had resting heart rates after exercising, of 47. It was impressive to see but not scary. Having a low heart rate when sleeping is normal, it’s your body’s way of turning out the lights at night.
So I guess the best answer I can give is that it will depend on the human being in question.
That rate might be a little too low to be accounted for by your exercising. Low heart rate is significant if it is associated with passing out but while sleeping it won’t happen.
The minimum that needs to be checked are your blood pressure preferably with continuous blood pressure monitoring which will measure your heart rate and blood pressure while sleeping as well as when awake. It needs to be deternined if you are hypothyroid. You need to have an EKG done to look for heart blocks.
Please discuss with your physician.
I was just curious why and how did you check your sleeping heart rate.
I cannot trust my Galaxy watch…..at lower rates it seems accurate but at times I’m doing nothing more than walking it zooms to 170+ bpm. So I carried an oximeter with me….when my watch read 167bpm, the oximeter said 82. I was walking my dog. I’ve also noticed when its not even on my arm it will go to 150+……then i put it on and it recalculates to 68…..then in minutes its back up to 150+ but a simple count on my neck tells me I’m around 70. Very unreliable and anxiety provoking.
There’s four major possibilities:
- You have a naturally low heart-rate.
- You do a lot of cardiovascular exercise (think things like running). It’s not uncommon for runners and other endurance athletes to have a low resting heart rate, especially while sleeping. I currently run around 50 miles per week, and mine rarely drops below 40, but it is often hits 40–42 during the night according to my Fitbit.
- You have a medical condition causing a slow heart-rate. Heart disease, electrolyte imbalances, and hypothyroidism are a few possibilities.
- You’re taking a medication that’s effecting your HR. (Bet
I have seen many hundreds of patients like this. I cannot offer you SPECIFIC recommendations because I need a great deal of information before your question can be answered. YOUR Age, family history, physical conditioning, current medication, past history of heart or vascular disease , presence of diabetes, smoking, illegal drug use, etc etc, == that’s just the beginning.
You need to see a Cardiologist now —- The most common Dx is going to be “Sick Sinus Syndrome” – which is not dangerous if followed properly. There is no oral medicine for slow heart. This has NOTHING to do with heart attack or
You gave us a difficult question. Without knowing you, observing you, and knowing all available medical information, very little can be said about your situation. The body is a very complicated system that very tightly regulates all its essential functions.
Your age, overall health condition, and comorbidities are very important signs of what can be done is such a situation. Some sportsmen have such or even lower heart rate normally. It is not probably your case.
Only general advice can be done:
