Introduction: Blood pressure is a force applied by blood that push against the arteries. Arteries are blood vessels that send oxygenated blood to the heart and throughout the rest of the body. To calculate blood pressure, use a blood pressure machine which shows the two types of pressures, systolic and diastolic pressure. Systolic pressure happens when the heart is decreasing and diastolic pressure is the pressure the occurs when the heart expands. Systolic pressure is always over diastolic pressure and the average is 120/80 mmHg. (S. Jose, E-12) Blood pressure is measured in mmHg which stands for millimeter of mercury. The cuff on the blood pressure machine blocks off the arteries and while it is inflated the pressure increases.…show more content…
Find three different genres of music for the participant to listen to such as, rap (On the come up- Mike Will Made-It), country (Chillin it- Cole Swindell) and jazz (Introductions- Ljones). Repeat this process to see if there is consistency in the results. B.Written Account: As the procedure shows this experiment was to learn about the different types of blood pressure and how music affects blood pressure. Participant one’s average blood pressure without music was 106/70 and increased to 112/72 while listening to rap music, decreased to 105/63 while listening to country music and decreased to 106/62 while listening to jazz music. Then, participant two’s average blood pressure without music appears to be 104/72 and was increased to 106/75 while listening to rap music, decreased to 101/62 while listening to country music, and decreased to 94/61 while listening to jazz music. Then, participant three’s average blood pressure without music is 112/66 and increased to 117/70 while listening to rap, decreased to 110/64 listening to country and decreased to 107/62 while listening to jazz music. Participant four’s average blood pressure was 131/77 and increased to 135/78 while listening to rap music, decreased to 128/75 while listening to country music, and decreased to 123/72 while listening to jazz music. Participant five’s average blood pressure was 124/77 and while listening to rap music the participants blood pressure
