As people grow old it is quite normal for there heart to miss beats ,,, sometimes four times in a minute ,,, thus the rate is slower

Their heart rate should not go below 50 bpm.  If it does they can suffer from weakness, fatigue, and even fainting.  If it's below 50, get them to the Dr. Immediately.

Heart block and Hypothyroidism can be the cause of low pulse rates.
