1. (8pts) From these data, graph your mean arterial pressure (MAP; see formula) and heart rate (y axes) vs. workload (in METS) on the x-axis (include resting results). Using this information, answer the following questions. Show ALL work.

MAP = [1/3 (SBP-DBP)] +DBP

MAP: [1/3 (SBP-DBP)] + DBP Resting (supine) - [1/3 (118-72)] + 72= 87.33~87 mmHg Resting (standing) - [1/3 (108-70)] + 70= 82.67~83 mmHg Bruce Protocol Stage 1 - [1/3 (120-64)] + 64= 82.67~83 mmHg Bruce Protocol Stage 2 - [1/3 (130-68)] + 68= 88.67~89 mmHg

METs: Resting = 1 MET Bruce Protocol Stage 1= 4.6 METs Bruce Protocol Stage 2 = 7 METs

Heart Rate: Resting (supine) - 64 bts/min Resting (standing)- 127 bts/min Bruce Protocol Stage 1- 126 bts/min Bruce Protocol Stage 2- 147 bts/min

2. (4 pts) Does your data show a normal HR and MAP response to this exercise protocol? Explain why or why not? Yes, the data shows a normal heart rate and MAP response to this exercise protocol. Heart rate is supposed to increase with the increase in workload. The MAP is supposed to remain relatively constant throughout the exercise with the SBP increasing with the intensifying work load and DBP remaining relatively constant.

3. (8 pts) Double product (also called rate pressure

The rick increases when an individual is exercising at a higher intensity. Data has shown that one per 133,000 men and one per 769,000 women athletes of high school and college age are at risk for an exercise related death. Cardiac related deaths among young individuals was one per 185,000 men and one per 1.5 million women. A sudden cardiac death is one per 15,000-18,000 for adults who showed previous signs. Overall, six cardiac events were shown for every 10,000 tests, showing the risk is low for a cardiac related event to occur during exercise or exercise
