Heart beat: The rhythmatic contraction(systole) and relaxation (diastole) of the cardiac muscle is known as heart beat. Each heart beat includes one systole and one diastole of the heart to distribute and receive blood to and from the body. The heart of a healthy person beats 72 times per minute.
Pulse is the alternate expansion and elastic recoil of an artery with each systole. Pulse is strongest in the arteries closest to heart. Pulse can be detected in superficial artery like radial artery of wrist and temporal artery. Normal pulse rate ranges 70-90 per minute. The pulse rate is the same as the heart rate.
Difference between Heart beat and Pulse (Heart beat vs Pulse)
