Wacky Things to Do With a Heart Rate Monitor

Hmmm...boredom do ya think? How about wearing a HR monitor while sleeping?

Easily discernible is the sleep phase of REM. A few facts of physiology:
  1. REM occupies 20-25% of a nights sleep
  2. HR is irregular
  3. REM phases start out brief at the beginning of the night and are longer toward the end
  4. Usually 4 or 5 periods of REM each night
Given these fact and applied to the above graphic, I think we'll all conclude I'm a normal.

Yeah, whateve...
