When diving, the whale’s heart beats only twice a minute

When diving, the whale’s heart beats only twice a minute|The first successful experiment to detect the pulse of a giant creature such as a whale has been revealed, when the blue (blue) whale dives for food, reducing its heartbeat to only two beats a minute. Can be reached, According to scientists at Stanford University, no other animal has ever been found to slow the heart rate to such an extent. Even this amazing discovery goes beyond the prediction of animal experts. It was previously thought that especially if the blue whale is in a state of calm and relaxation, its heart beats at least 15 times a minute. According to University Professor Jeremy Goldbogan, whales need extraordinary energy to feed. Blue whale often draws in such large amounts of dietary water that it may even be larger than its body. This set of water may also contain small creatures that are the favorite food of the whale. But measuring the heart rate of the Blue Whale was not easy, and scientists created a six-meter-long rod with sensors measuring the heart. Special suction pumps were mounted on the sensor, allowing the sensor to stick to the wheel body. Thus for nine consecutive hours, he noted the whale’s heartbeat, which was repeated hundreds of times. It is found that the whale’s heart beats only 2 to 8 times per minute when trying for food. At one time the whale takes 16 to 17 minutes to dive and reaches a maximum depth of 184 meters. The whale lasts one to four minutes at this depth of water. The heart rate is slowest when it comes to food, which is two beats per minute while the whale’s heartbeat 37 times per minute has also been noted. Later the whale reaches the surface of the water and during this time its rate of beating and breathing increases abnormally. Experts say this research will help further research on the whale.
