Blood Pressure


Define diastolic blood pressure.


Given a blood pressure of 125/80, what is the mean arterial pressure?


Assuming a stroke volume output of 70 ml at rest that increases by 20% after exercise, and a heart rate of 60 at rest and 125 following exercise, calculate the cardiac output standing at rest and immediately after exercise.


The specific gravity of mercury 13.6 times that of water. If your blood pressure were 110/70 mm Hg, what would that be in cm H20?

When the electrode pads are placed on the subject, where is the positive electrode placed?


You can calculate your heart rate in two ways. First, you could simply count the number of pulses for a given time period and adjust that to the number of pulses per minute. Or, you could measure the cycle time of the cardiac cycle. If you measure the cycle time to be 0.575 sec, what is the heart rate?


What does the P-wave of the ECG represent?
