Athlete vs. Non-athlete Blood Pressure Research by Quinten Travis
Introduction Blood pressure has been recognized as a principle vital sign and is a criteria for being in good health. The purpose of this experiment is to test the direct effect that athletic events have on the blood pressure of athletes.
Null Hypothesis: There is no significant difference in blood pressure between athletes and non-athletes. Alternative Hypothesis: The blood pressure of athletes is significantly less that non-athletes.
Method 1.Participants will be asked a series of questions in order to identify predetermine factors that affect blood pressure (weight, age, height) 2.Participants; blood pressure will then be tested and recorded. 3.Data will be compared and interpreted to determine if the results of the experiment show significant differences between athletes and non-athletes.
Data Collection and Analysis to Date Male Vs. Female Blood Pressure Male Female
