L15 Aerobic Exercise Physiology

Aerobic Exercise physiology teaching lab

In the Aerobic Exercise Physiology lesson, students use the BSL System to record ECG, heart rate, airflow, and skin temperature under a variety of conditions.

Students will see how their respiration pattern, the electrical activity of the heart, heart rate, and skin temperature change to meet changing metabolic demands.

Students perform a number of tasks designed to reach their personal maximum heart rate.

Experimental Objectives

  1. Observe and record respiratory changes to meet changing metabolic demands with changing activity levels.

  2. Observe and record changes in electrical activity of the heart with changing activity levels.

  3. Observe and record changes in skin temperature coincident with sweat gland activity and activity levels.

Tasks Performed by the Student

BSL Lessons are designed to allow at least four students to record and save data in a normal lab period (60-90 minutes). Typically, labs work most efficiently with three or more students working together at each BSL station.
