My pulse rate misses but the total reading would be around 50-55 per minute

I am 64 years old. I have a pressure-check monitor in my house which comes with the pulse rate sound-monitor.
I am a hypertension patient. I take covrsyl 8 mg.once a day  and nifidefine  10mg. twice a day.
My pressure normally reads as 115/65. What worries me is my pulse rate as sometimes the pulse beating is normal with no misses but sometimes it misses once or twice and as I can hear the heartbeat from the monitor. The end result of the pulse rate is around 55-60. I feel normal.  Is it a cause for concern or is it normal for my age?
Please advice me.

Thank you.

Yours truly,

Mahendra - Malaysia.

your pulse rate at 55 is a little low, but if your generally feeling well then it shouldn't be a problem. i would mention it to the doctor. 60 beats is very normal, but that is only my opinion, you would need to discuss this with your  doctor. take care.
