    following procedure was performed. For the palpation of superficial pulse points, a pulse is easily felt when a superficial artery is pressed against firm tissue such as two pointer fingers. It is not advised to use a thumb, as it has its own strong pulse. The common carotid artery is the first pulse felt. It is on the left side of your neck under your throat near the Adam’s apple and/or upper trachea (for females). Another artery that is felt is the brachial artery, so on the inside of the elbow. The last artery felt is the radial artery found inside the wrist near the thumb, again using two pointer fingers (index and middle finger work fine). After choosing what is believed to be the strongest…

    The males tested had the greatest average resting mean arterial pressure overall at rest and immediately after the two-minute workout. All the female’s mean arterial pressures recovered following four min after the exercise. In contrast, three out of the five males recovered although they had a much lower rate change in comparison to the females. This data is illustrated in graphs four, five, and six. Pulse rate The females tested on average had a significantly greater pulse rate at rest and…

    Pulse oximetry is a noninvasive procedure that is used to measure the oxygen saturation level of the newborn (Pillitteri & Pillitteri, 2013). The device used in pulse oximetry readings contains two diodes that release equal concentrations of red and infrared light concurrently into the tissue bed the electrode is secured (WHO, 2011). The reading that is displayed is the proportion of reduced hemoglobin and oxygenated blood that is calculated and displayed indicating the oxygen concentration…

    Abstract— Optical Pulse Oximetry is feasibly the greatest advance in patient monitoring. Pulse Oximetry enables oxygenation, an important physiological variable that is poorly detected by clinical means, to be monitored continuously and easily. Hypoxemia is commonly found in all aspects of medical practice and is a major cause of organ abnormality and death. It should be widely available and used routinely in clinical practice both in primary care and in hospital. This paper will design a…

    Peripheral Pulse Checks and Amplitude Absence or diminished leg pulses may suggest peripheral arterial disease of intermittent claudication. Absence suggests occlusion by thrombus, embolus, or dissection. If the pulse is hypokinetic or of low volume and amplitude, this could suggest shock or myocardial infarction indicative of low cardiac output such in the case of cardiomyopathy, stenosis, tamponade, or pericarditis. Hyperkinetic or bounding pulses are large-amplitude and strong pulses may be…

    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…

    was the different exercises that were done. These were running, jump roping, and doing jumping jacks. The dependent variable was the difference in heart rate after exercising. Some of the control variables were the amount of time that subjects exercised (15 minutes), the age of the subjects that were tested (10-11 years old), and the timer used to keep track of how long the participant exercised and record pulse. The control group in this project was the group of subjects that walked. The…

    For her early morning vital signs, her emotional state depicts as uncooperative and groggy, but as the morning progressed, she became more awake and alert. Her 0800 vital signs are as follows: oral temperature 98.3 degrees Fahrenheit, respiratory rate 16, heart rate via left radial pulse is 46, blood pressure 170/66 left arm lying down, oxygen saturation is 97% using her left digital probe finger and is on room air. The patient denies any pain, and I was told to monitor the patient periodically…

    1 shows only a 0.5 difference in heartrate. This suggests that participants had a higher arousal level after listening to high energy music supporting the hypothesis. In both trials however, heart rate increase is minor, establishing a marginal effect on the relationship between music type and physical arousal. While the hypothesis is supported to an extent, this experiment lacks the reliability and the imperical evidence to support whether music preference relates to an increased physcial…
