In the hospital, the nurse would take his heart rate and if the rate was below 60, they wouldn't give him a digoxin pill in the late afternoon.
That's what I've always learned. At home you should check with his dr and see if he wants you to do that. If it was my pulse I'd hold it and make sure if I should take it or not, before I took it.
