1Athlete vs. Non-athlete Blood Pressure Research by Quinten Travis
2IntroductionBlood 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.
3Null 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’.
4MethodParticipants will be asked a series of questions in order to identify predetermine factors that affect blood pressure (weight, age, height)Participants; blood pressure will then be tested and recorded.Data will be compared and interpreted to determine if the results of the experiment show significant differences between athletes and non-athletes.
5Blood Pressure Classifications Classification of blood pressure for adultsCategorysystolic, mmHgdiastolic, mmHgHypotension< 90< 60Desired90–11960–79Prehypertension120–13980–89Stage 1 Hypertension140–15990–99Stage 2 Hypertension160–179100–109Hypertensive Emergency≥ 180≥ 110
