H04 Blood Pressure

h04setup.jpg

This PRO lesson describes hardware and software setup of the BSL PRO System to record (noninvasive) blood pressure response to isometric or straining exercise.

Experimental Objectives

  1. To record systolic and diastolic pressure changes during voluntary isometric contractions.
  2. To identify and correlate the appearance and the cessation of the Korotkoff sounds to the isometric loads.
  3. To visualize and compute the changes in pulse pressure and its relationship to the isometric load.

Tasks Performed by the Student

Record the resting blood pressure values of a subject:

Recording variations:
