Transcript: Blood Pressure What is Blood Pressure? Blood Pressure is the force exerted against the blood vessels. This varies on different parts of your body, but it is strongest in your left arm. There are 2 parts to taking blood pressure, systolic and diastolic. Blood Pressure is written similar to a fraction. The way it is written is systolic over diastolic. Systolic- Systolic pressure is the pressure exerted against the arteries as the heart beats. Diastolic- Diastolic pressure is the pressure exerted against the arteries as the heart relaxs between beats. Taking Blood pressure! First, get the correct devices you will need. (Stethoscope and Blood Pressure Cuff) Second, put the cuff on snuggly on your elbow. Third, put the stethoscope under the cuff, posterior of the elbow. Inflate the cuff to 180, and slowly release pressure. When you hear the first heart beat, that is the systolic. Once the heart beat can no longer be heard, that is your diastolic. Example: Pulse rate is also an important part to blood pressure, as it is what you are listening to. Pulse rate is the number of times your heart beats in a given time. Typically, you count the number of beats in a 15 second time span and multiply by 4. You can find your heart rate in multiple places on your body. Two locations for finding your pulse is on your neck and wrist. For an average adult, the resting heart rate should be between 60-100. If you are an athletic human, it can get as low as 40. A lower heart rate generally implies that the person has a more efficent cardiovascular fitness and heart function.
Transcript: Normal Blood Pressure Range What is Blood Pressure? How Do you take blood pressure? The Wonders of Blood Pressure! A measurement of force applied to the walls of the arteries as the heart pumps blood through the body. Systolic blood pressure is the amount of pressure that blood exerts on vessels while the heart is beating 100 to 140 mm Hg Why is blood pressure important? To take blood pressure you: 1. Sit patient down 2. Put cuff around patient's arm and pump the cuff to about 180 3. Let air out slowly and listen for the first and last beats. Diastolic Blood Pressure High blood presssure can lead to heart disease and it can also damage your kidneys and brain. Low blood pressure can cause your blood to drop if you stand up after sitting to long. Blood pressure is important because the higher your blood pressure is, the higher your risk of health problems in the future. Diastolic blood pressure measures the pressure in your blood vessels between heartbeats If you don't know you have blood pressure problems or you dont take your medicine you might not realize how much you are affecting your body until it kills you or damages your body. More than 40% of African Americans have high blood pressure. 30% of people with high blood pressure are unaware they have it. High blood pressure killed 49,707 Americans in 2002 High Blood Pressure Statistics Blood Pressure Is The Silent Killer! What are the risk of high and low blood pressure? Systolic Blood Pressure
Transcript: Blood Pressure Project We took the blood pressure of a person sitting, laying down, and after we scared them. We also caused physical pain to try to spike the blood pressure We concluded that scaring someone caused their blood pressure to go up We scared them to test their fight or flight response We pulled Alex's hair We popped a balloon to scare the subject. Aaron was the test subject for the scaring part. Causing physical pain caused blood pressure to go down
Transcript: Blood Pressure Negative Loop The blood pressure negative loop is a cyclical process common in the physiology of mammals. It's function is to reestablish homeostasis, the general process of regaining physiological balance in order to survive. The loop is also a major process in the circulatory system, and so involves the use of the heart, veins and arteries. The brain also plays a significant part of the blood pressure negative loop. Integration Center-The Brain Stimulus-Blood Pressure Increases Increases in blood pressure are actually naturally occurring, as they are a means to supply our bodies' muscles with the oxygen they need. Similarly, when the body is deprived of food, the normal range of metabolism can be reset to a less than normal value. And so decreases in blood pressure are also naturally occurring. Whenthese increases or decreases go unregulated either the muscles can burn-out from a lack of oxygen supply or that the body will ever metabolize and likely starve the animal to death. In conclusion, although there is no end to this loop, many animals bodies (including humans) require this function to survive. References By Patrick B. Richardson Now what? http://science.jrank.org/pages/3365/Homeostasis.html http://www.occc.edu/biologylabs/Documents/Homeostasis/Feedback_Loop.htm http://science.jrank.org/pages/3365/Homeostasis.html The brain then signals the heart and blood vessels to compensate for the measured increase in blood pressure. Nerve receptors in the Carotid arteries detect and access the increase in blood pressure. Response-Blood Pressure Decreases Recepter-Carotid Arteries First blood pressure is increased to supplement the muscles with more oxygen, thus activating the loop. Effectors-Heat and Blood Vessels After the nerves in the Carotid Arteries detect an in crease in blood pressure, they signal the brain and ask what needs to be adjusted in order to achieve stability in the body, AKA homeostasis. What is it? Lastly the animal's heart rate decreases and the diameter of its blood vessels increases, causing the animals blood pressure to revert back to its normal range.
Transcript: Healthy By Femke, Helene and Alana Helene - systolic : 94 Diastolic: 71 Femke - systolic: 131 Diastolic: 78 Alana- systolic: 127 Diastolic: 77 Healthy What is blood pressure? Healthy blood pressure Results Blood pressure Blood pressure is a measure of how hard your blood pumps against your arterie walls. When your blood pressure is too high, its starts to damage the blood vessels, heart and kidneys. That can cause a heart attack, a stroke, and other terrible things. If your blood pressure is too low, this could often cause you to faint. It is normally really healthy if you have a really low blood pressure, but when it becomes too low it it can cause a reduction in blood flow to vital organs around the body. Healthy We did an experiment about blood pressure. A healthy blood pressure is 120/80. We found out that our blood is perfectly healthy, not to low and neither to high. helene alana and i didnt get far away from 120/80. This means that all three of us are perfectly healthy.
Transcript: Listen to the music and think of a nightmare that you have had Put this memory and feeling into words. You can do this however you want How did you do that? What techniques did you use?

Transcript: Fact # 1 BP is America's 3rd leading cause of death Fact # 2 Until age 60, women are less likely than men to develop high BP---but after 60 women take the lead. Fact # 3 The higher your BP, the shorter your life expectancy. Fact # 4 Vegetarians usually have lower BP. Fact # 5 About 70% of Americans with high BP are overweight. Losing 10 to 20 lbs can bring BP down to normal levels. Fact # 6 Being overweight between the ages of 20 and 30 significantly increases the risk of developing hypertension later on. Fact # 7 Aspirin, ibuprofen, oral contraceptives, decongestants, and over-the-counter and prescription drugs can elevate BP. Fact # 8 Hypertension often exhibits no symptoms until BP hits dangerous levels. Blood Pressure Life-saving facts
