Pulse pressure The pressure felt as the blood in the artery surges through the point that has pressure applied.
Pulse Points: Common Carotid Artery
Pulse Points: Brachial Artery
Pulse Points: Radial Artery
Pulse Points: Femoral Artery
Pulse Points: Popliteal Artery
Pulse Points: Posterior Tibial Artery
Pulse Points: Dorsalis Pedis Artery
Systolic pressure High Pressure due to ventricular contraction Ex. 120 mmHg
Diastolic pressure Low pressure due to ventricular relaxation Ex. 80 mmHg
Sounds of Korotkoff The sounds heard through the stethoscope while taking blood pressure. These are due to systolic pressure pushing blood past the cuff.
Auscultation The process of using the stethoscope to listen to each heart valve individually.
Murmur A swooshing sound produced by the incomplete closing of a heart valve.
Cardiac cycle The rhythmic contraction (systole) and relaxation (diastole) of the chambers of the heart that corresponds to one heartbeat
Formula to calculate blood pressure BP = CO x PR Blood pressure = cardiac output x peripheral resistance Peripheral resistance is also known as vascular resistance
Normal Blood Pressure 120/80
Effects of exercise on BP Exercise increases blood pressure. Large groups of muscles need more oxygen, which causes the heart rate to increase raising blood pressure
Heart Rate, Blood Pressure, and Exercise. Blood Pressure Made up of two numbers: –systolic blood pressure –diastolic blood pressure. Written as: Systolic/Diastolic.
Measuring: -Temperature -Pulse -Blood Pressure -Body mass index
Blood pressure & Pulse. Blood Pressure The pressure of the blood against the walls of the arteries. Blood pressure results from two forces. ▫One is created.
Important Concepts Associated with the Measurement of Blood Pressure.
