  • The Pulse Rate Of Heart Rate

    2087 Words  | 9 Pages

    measure the pulse rate in terms of heart rate by using heart rate sensor instrument. The heart rate was measured during resting state, after exercise and after watching salamanders. Phobia of particular animals can change the heart rate when approaching scared animals. 11 The results revealed a significant increase in the pulse rate during the exercise as compared to the resting state. A Similar trend was seen after I watched salamanders as well. From the study, it was concluded that heart rate increases

  • Experiment to Determine if Physical Activity Will Increase in Pulse Rate and Blood Pressure

    1426 Words  | 6 Pages

    approximately equal to the patient’s heart level, pulse palpation began. The left radial artery was visually located. The researcher lightly placed an index and middle finger over the left radial artery and began palpation of the radial pulse for fifteen seconds. The pulse rate was calculated by multiplying the total pulse count for the fifteen second duration by four to determine the heart rate. The rate was recorded as the Post-exercise pulse rate. The earpieces and bell of the stethoscope were

  • Investigating the Effect of Exercise on Pulse Rate Essay

    536 Words  | 3 Pages

    Investigating the Effect of Exercise on Pulse Rate Aim: To see what happens to the pulse rate during exercise. Prediction: I predict that the pulse rate will increase in order to take more oxygen for respiration. The heartbeat will increase and become stronger to transport oxygen and carbon dioxide to and from the muscle cells. The breathing rate will increase in order to get rid of the extra waste such as Carbon dioxide. Respiration is the release of energy. Anaerobic

  • Factor affecting pulse rate

    1268 Words  | 6 Pages

    Biology Task To investigate the effect of some factor affecting pulse rate Aim TO investigate how exercise affects the pulse rate. To do this, we took our normal pulse rate and then compared it with the pulse rate after exercise (walking). We kept all other factors constant so as to study the effect of exercise on pulse rate. Introduction Our heart is a muscle. It's located a little to the left of the middle of our chest, and it's about the size of our fist. There are lots of muscles all over

  • Pulse Rate Lab Report

    The results gathered from each exercise achieved each objective. The results of the effects of position and exercise on the heart rate and blood pressure showed that there is a high increase in pulse rate and in blood pressure after the post-exercise. The pulse rate indicated that as your arteries expand each time the ventricles pump blood out of the heart when exercising, exercise increases cardiovascular system attempting to deliver more oxygen to the muscles. When a person is standing, blood tend

  • Essay about Lab Report: Blood Pressure

    Variables Affecting Human Arterial Pressure and Pulse Rate BIOL-204 Introduction: The woozy feeling when standing up too quickly. After going for a run, feeling as if one more beat and the heart would project itself out of the chest. Or quite the opposite and being in a very relaxed state. These are all changes one experiences at some time or another. What causes the different feelings and how each variable affects pulse rate and blood pressure has many wondering. Because of this curiosity

  • Abstract:. The Consequence Of Exercising On Respiration

    1049 Words  | 5 Pages

    Abstract: The consequence of exercising on respiration rate, mean arterial pressure (MAP), and pulse rate activity of the heart was examined. The experiment included equal numbers of male and female students to test short term cardiopulmonary effects for all factors. Small gender distinction for pulse rate was first detected. Then drastic, short-term changes for respiration rate along with MAP were noted. The great contrast in effects witnessed for male and female subjects with regard to electro

    Physiological Measurements 1. 1.1 2. Physiological state in defined as “the condition or state of the body or bodily functions”. This can be measured when we perform our observations. By measuring a patient’s respiratory rate, oxygen saturations, peak flow (in asthma patients), pulse rate, systolic and diastolic blood pressure, core temperature, blood sugar, pupil reaction and Glasgow coma scale. All these combined measurement can give us an insight into the patient’s health or Physiological state. 2

    include using Ventolin inhaler. Paramedic report shows that her pulse rate is 140 bpm, which should have been between 70-100 bpm. Higher pulse rate indicates that the person is prone to sudden asthma attacks (Dawson, 2014), especially after any physical event. Her blood pressure is 130/70, where we can see that her diastolic pressure is low. Her respiratory rate is 40 bpm, this is a highly dangerous rate for any adult, as respiratory rate should be between 12-20 for any adult. This indicates that she

  • Dr. Steward's Priority Problems With Impaired Cardiac Tissue Perfusion, Impaired Gas Exchange, And Pain

    1043 Words  | 5 Pages

    Focused Assessments and Priorities Mr. Steward’s priority problems include impaired cardiac tissue perfusion, impaired gas exchange, and pain. We are concerned about impaired cardiac tissue perfusion because the pt. is exhibiting signs of myocardial ischemia including chest pain and shortness of breath (Gillespie, 2012). Although we acknowledge that impaired cardiac tissue perfusion can decrease the function of the heart and will have the potential to affect the perfusion and delivery of oxygen
