Hey everyone...right this is probably different from the normal posts here but I hope you can answer.
Me and my bestfriend are both 15 and both girls. My friend (Anna) was given a stephoscope by her parents for her 15th birthday because they want her to be a doctor like them. We were messing about with it and its like really fun, so she wants to do it again.
I just have some questions about some things we noticed. Her heart was like pumping at 61 beats the first time, and then at 64 beats the second (shes stick thin and plays loads of sport) but my heart was kinda faster at 88 beats the first time and then 98 the second time (i'm quite a big girl, a uk size 26 / 42C). And she noticed my heart like makes my breast move when it pumps by an inch(ish) and hers doesn't move at all. Is this because im fat?
Second can you tell us some things to listen for in the heart? and things to watch out for?
Thanks :D Chloe
