Abstract
Heart rate is a major determinant of cardiac output, myocardial oxygen consumption and coronary blood flow under physiological and pathological conditions. Resting heart rate is an easily accessible clinical parameter in medical practice. Stress is an important cause of increase in resting heart rate due to sympathetic overdrive. After qualifying through a tough competitive examination, successful candidates have got seats in government medical college of Baripada, Odisha. The MBBS course being lengthy and strenuous, added to the concept of studying in a newly built medical college, could be stress factors to the 1st batch of MBBS students. The resting heart rate of both groups (boys and girls) was recorded and subjected to appropriate statistical analysis. Higher resting heart rate values were observed in girls (80.1 ± 11.0 beats/min) compared to boys (75.9 ± 12.7 beats/min) (p≤0.001).
