  • The Effect Of Exercise On Pulse Rates

    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 immediately after the exercise in comparison to the males. Although the net change between male and females was very close, the recovery was not. All of the male pule rates recovered whereas the females only had one subject recover. This data is illustrated…

  • Pulse Oximeter Essay

    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…

  • Heart Rate Exercise Essay

    more movements that a person does, the higher their heart rate will be. After doing this experiment, we found that the more movements and exercises your body does, the more increased your heart rate will become. There could be possible sources of error like any experiments, so this data is the most accurate data we could possibly achieve. Introduction: How do body positions and/or exercise affect heart rate? Our experiment is based around this essential question. From what is known, exercise…

  • Heart And Lung Sounds Analysis

    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…

  • Stethoscope Vs. Cardiomicrophone

    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…
