What can push a resting pulse rate to 150 BPM in an adult?

First, make sure that the rate is accurate.
Ensure that the person is truly resting, for example, is not emotionally upset about something.
If the pulse is regular, count it for a full 15 seconds and multiply by 4. If the pulse is irregular, count it for a full minute.
If the person truly has a resting heart rate greater than 120 beats per minute, go to the emergency room.
A resting heart rate greater than 120 beats per minute can indicate a dangerous problem in the electrical activity in the heart, and needs to be evaluated as soon as possible.

a resting pulse can be pushed to 150 bpm, by sleep apnea,
desaturation levels of oxygen below 90 % "a dangerous level"
can cause what is known as "atrial flutter or atriel fibrilation"
witch once began will convert on its own in some individuals,and in others, it may need a cadioversion. or magic of electricity,

This is definitely not a normal heart rate. In my opinion it should be evaluated by a doctor, it would be silly to try to guess what the cause is. This is too serious to mess around with, you should see a doctor.
Lady T~

nervousness, certain types of bacterial and viral infections, especially those attacking the heart, a deconditioned heart from under use over time, extreme amounts of plaques in the arteries, I could go on and on. Do you have high BP too? How long does the 150 BPM stick around? Are there other factors like environment that alter this pulse? Get checked out to be safe.

Many things can do it. Atrial fibrillation, atrial flutter, sinus tachycardia, congestive heart failure, etc... just to name a few.

Tachycardia from a cardiac defect.
This could be serious or lethal if not treated after a long enough time.

It could lead to fianting and irregular heart beat and must get treatment at the emergency dept.

6.5 miles per hour for two minutes on a tredmill. oh.. you mean 150 not 190. Pick a slower speed then. Or at least that is how it is for hypertrophic cardiomyopathy patients like me. Of course I come close to fainting after trying that.

Anything under 200 to 250 depending on the person is within "normal" range. A normal heart doesn't pump well above that.

Sinustachycardia, supaventricular tachycardia, atrial fibrillation. Can be casued by several heart conditions, thyroid over function and even excitement

Good head does that to me.

Fear, drugs.

An arrhythmia such as sinus tachycardia or supraventricular tachycardia causes a resting pulse to shoot up that high. Many things including certain drugs can cause this arrhythmia. Its best to make an appointment with your GP if you notice your pulse is that high.

Besides a healthy case of anxiety or cocaine? No idea.
