    produced electronic distortion, feedback, static, cacophony, and compositional processes using indeterminacy (Priest 2013, 132) (Hagerty 2007). Music can powerfully evoke and modulate emotions and moods, along with changes in heart activity, blood pressure (BP), and breathing. Although there is great heterogeneity in methods and quality among previous studies on effects of music on the heart, the following findings emerge from the literature: Heart rate (HR) and respiratory rate (RR) are higher in response to exciting music compared with tranquilizing music. During musical frissons (involving shivers and piloerection), both HR and RR increase. Moreover, HR and RR tend to increase in response to music compared with silence, and HR appears to decrease in response to unpleasant music compared with pleasant music. We found no studies that would provide evidence for entrainment of HR to musical beats. Corresponding to the increase in HR, listening to exciting music (compared with tranquilizing music) is associated with a reduction of heart rate variability (HRV), including reductions of both low-frequency and high-frequency power of the HRV. Recent findings also suggest effects of music-evoked emotions on regional activity of the heart, as reflected in electrocardiogram amplitude patterns. In patients with heart disease (similar to other patient groups), music can reduce pain and anxiety, associated with lower HR and lower BP. In general, effects of music on the heart are small,…

    Essay On Respiration

    • 1205 Words
    • 5 Pages

    What is the normal rate of respiration per minute? The normal respiration rate per minute for an adult is 8 to 16 breaths per minute. For an infant, a normal rate is up to 44 breaths per minute. 3. Why does respiratory rate increase after exercise? Respiratory rate increases after exercise because when you exercise your muscles work harder and needing more oxygen than normal to burn extra calories. The blood is picking up oxygen as it travels through your lungs and delivers it to the muscles.…

    In addition, KMC ensures cardiorespiratory stability especially in the case of interhospital ambulance transport. According to the Transport Risk Index of Physiologic Stability (TRIPS) scale, the main predictors of an illness severity include temperature, BP and respiratory status of the infant (Sontheimer et al, 1995). Kangaroo mother care, however, has the ability to address these predictors effectively; consequently, this ability makes KMC a better transport compared to transport in an…

    controlled (VC)-IMV with adaptive and set-point targeting schemes. This mode guarantees the patient will receive a minimum minute volume based the set respiratory rate and tidal volume. Thus, the set breathing rate is the maximum number of mandatory breaths a patient can receive (Chatburn, Khatib, Mireles-Cabodevila, 2014). Furthermore, if the patient is able to breath spontaneously above the set rate and tidal volume, fewer mandatory breaths are delivered by the machine. The mandatory breaths…

    A Pearson’s correlation was used to find a very weak, negative relationship between age and lung capacity for females, r(8) = -0.029, p = 0.937. See Figure 2. The coefficient of determination for females (r ² = 0.00084) signified that females accounted for <1% of the variability in age and respiratory problems. For every year increase in age, peak flow decreases Y = -0.018x + 464.141. Based on the regression equation, the peak flow of a 20-year-old would be 463.781 L/min and the peak flow of…

    Caffeine Synthesis

    Discussion The results from the experiment demonstrate that respiratory frequency was higher and increased faster as exercise intensity increased in caffeinated individuals. The correlation between the independent (intensity of work rate) and dependent (respiratory frequency) variables for both the caffeinated and non-caffeinated groups was fairly good (R2 > 0.35) so there is some evidence that caffeine causes an increase in respiratory frequency. Tidal volume and alveolar ventilation were…

    The respiratory system is responsible for the balance of oxygen and carbon dioxide in the body to meet metabolic demands. The way a person’s breathe can be affected is by emotions and/or changes in the internal environment. The breathing process is mainly controlled by the brainstem and peripheral system. The brainstem controls several important functions of the body like arousal, breathing, and blood pressure, among other functions. In the brainstem, the medullary respiratory center consists of…

    could indicate that she has type two respiratory failure. The main aims when treating type two respiratory failure is directed at reversing the underlying cause. Non-invasive ventilation with a tight-fitting facial or nasal mask with low levels of oxygen therapy often stabilizes these patients. When a patient is suffering from type two respiratory failure, the effectiveness of a peak flow would not affect the treatment given directly, especially when time critical, however, in none emergency…

    Primary Respiratory System

    What are the primary functions of the respiratory system? The human respiratory system is made up of several organs (nose, pharynx, larynx, trachea, bronchi, and lungs). They are responsible in receiving oxygen and expelling carbon dioxide. However, the exchange of gases takes place in the lungs making them an important organ of the breathing process. RBC’s gather oxygen from the lungs transferring it to other parts of the body. During this process the RBC’s gather carbon dioxide and transfers…

    tubes are used to intubate a patient during anesthesia or when there is maintenance of the airway (Types of intubation, n.d.). Tracheostomy tubes and endotracheal tubes are often used for the distribution for aerosol therapy. According to the Medical Dictionary, Aerosol deposition is the depositing or the retention of aerosol particles on a nearby surface within the respiratory system. “Aerosol deposition during mechanical ventilation is reduced by the presence of an artificial airway” (Ari,…
