Your pulse is the rate at which your heart beats. Your pulse is usually called your heart rate, which is the number of times your heart beats each minute (bpm).
Digoxin has a low therapeutic index meaning the effective dose is very close to its toxic dose. Measuring the pulse is one tool a doctor can use to check that blood levels of digoxin are controlled.(If pulse rate is low then the doctor will run a blood test to check blood levels and adjust dose of digoxin accordingly)
