英国神奇老人 81岁高龄心跳全球最慢

发表时间:2015-08-01内容来源:VOA英语学习网
A British pensioner has stunned doctors after he recorded what could be the world’s slowest ever heart beat - slower than the world’s top athletes and even that of an elephant. 一位英国老人的心跳速率让医生们为之震惊,因为他大概打破了世界最慢心跳的记录——比世界顶尖的运动员,甚至大象还慢。 Super-fit Daniel Green, 81, could not believe it when medics said his heart rate had dropped to just 26 beats per minute - lower than Sir Bradley Wiggins and Mo Farah at rest, 35bpm and 33bpm respectively. 今年81岁却身体硬朗的丹尼尔·格林得知自己的心跳每分钟只有26下时也难以置信。因为这个速率比自行车运动员布拉德利·威金斯的每分钟35下,和英国田径运动员莫·法拉的每分钟33下还慢得多。 Mr Green was having a check-up when doctors said his resting rate was 36bpm but dropped to 26 - lower than the world record. 当时格林正在进行身体检查,医生告知他,其心跳从原来的1分钟36下降至26下,比世界纪录还低。 The official Guinness World Record holder is Martin Brady, 45, of Guernsey, who recorded a heartbeat of 27bpm. 目前吉尼斯世界纪录的保持者是一个名叫 马丁·布莱迪的男子,现年45岁,他的心跳速率是每分钟27下。 Doctors only realised Mr Green’s incredible heart rate after they hooked him up to an ECG machine for 24 hours. 医生们让格林在心电图机器前扫描了24小时后,才意识到他不可思议的心跳速率。 The average adult male heart beats at 72bpm - ranging from around 60bpm to 100bpm depending on activity levels. 一般成年人的心跳速率为每分钟72下,根据人体的活动状态,每分钟60下到100下均属于正常范围。 Mr Green puts his remarkable health down to daily exercise, and has not been to hospital since 1976, when he had a hernia operation. 格林认为自己的心跳速率低要归功于每天的锻炼。1976年接受疝气手术后,格林就再也没去过医院。 He said: ‘I couldn’t believe it when the doctors told me. I suppose your heart rate isn’t something anyone ever really notices. 他表示:“医生告诉我这个消息的时候我也非常震惊。我以为人们一般不太关注心跳速率。” ‘I was put forward for the 24-hour scan after my GP was alarmed by a 15-second ECG he gave me. But there’s nothing to worry about - I’m still in fine fettle. “我的医生在帮我做了15秒心电图后发现一些问题,便要求我做了24小时的心电图扫描,所幸结果表示一切正常。” ‘I go for hour-long walks every morning and do some light exercise with weights and a cross-trainer at least three times a week. “我每天早上都会散步一小时,做些减重运动,每周至少还会有三次使用全能锻炼机。” ‘They tell me an elephant has a heart rate of just 28 beats per minute, so I suppose I’m as healthy as an elephant.’ “医生还告诉我,大象的平均心跳速率是每分钟28下,所以我比大象还健壮埃” 来自:VOA英语网 文章地址: http://www.tingvoa.com/html/20150801/265874.html
