Table 1 reveals the varying resting blood pressures of volunteers 1 and 2 when using a stethoscope and how volunteer 1’s blood pressure varies when using a cardiomicrophone. This is a significant difference between volunteers 1 and 2 and a small difference when using a stethoscope versus cardiomicrophone.
Table 2 reveals how blood pressure is affected when the arm is positioned differently; blood pressure is highest when relaxed and fully extended and lowest when arm is held above subject’s head.
Table 3 depicts the interval, or the amount of time, between two pulses.
Table 4 depicts the calculate heart rates of volunteer 1 and 2 based upon the amplitude and interval of each pulse. As interval decreases, heart rate increase and amplitude does not affect rate, but represents the

Graph 1 depicts the results from table 6 in terms of heart rate, revealing volunteer 1 had a higher resting heart rate, but both volunteers had the same HR after cardio and volunteer 1 had a higher HR after pushups.
Graph 2 depicts the results from table 6 in terms of blood pressure, revealing that had a lower resting BP than volunteer 1, but had a bigger increase after pushups and volunteer 2 had a bigger increase after cardio.
The purpose of this experiment was to conduct a blood pressure test to reveal the resting blood pressure, how blood pressure is affected when the arm is positioned against gravity versus with gravity, and how blood pressure is affected differently when cardio is conducted versus pushups. It was also to conduct an ECG to reveal pulse rate, interval time between pulses, and how a cold environment affects amplitude. When looking at table 1 it reveals the resting blood pressure, it can be seen that there is a slight variance between volunteer 1 and 2, which could be a result of many factors. Some factors that could cause variance are height, weight, and physical physique. It can also bee seen that there is a slight difference when blood pressure taken
