The number one killer in the United States today is heart disease or also known as cardiovascular disease (U.S. National Library of Medicine, 2015). As death rates begin to rise due to cardiovascular disease, in 1948 the Framingham Heart Study became a joint project of the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute and Boston University to pinpoint the most common factors that play a role in cardiovascular disease and strokes (Framingham Heart Study, 2015). Over several years, the Framingham study has identified several risks factors that are believed to increase the likelihood of a person being diagnosed with cardiovascular disease. These risk factors include high blood pressure, high cholesterol levels, smoking, obesity, diabetes, and physical
Hispanic, thirty-eight year old, Anna Garcia expired due to a stroke. At one point in Anna Garcia's life she was diagnosed with type one diabetes. Due to the potential for high blood glucose levels, diabetes itself is a risk factor for stroke. Anna Garcia’s cardiologist had Anna complete cardiac testing. Anna underwent a treadmill stress test. Drastic increases in blood pressure occurred for the patients during the test. Also, a few premature ventricular contractions, which are heartbeats that start in one of the heart’s two lower chambers, were noted during the test. Ventricular tachycardia, a condition in which the lower chambers of the heart beat quickly, also occurred during the treadmill stress test, for Anna
Have you ever wondered which sport to play? Even though there are many sports to choose from, I think people should play baseball. Baseball is a game that you play on a field called a diamond. You play offence and defence. When you are on offence, you hit the baseball that the pitcher throws to you. On defence, you try to catch the baseballs that the other teams hit. People should play baseball because it makes them stronger, it helps people make new friends, and it helps keep people healthy through exercise.
The learning task analysis is a list of goals that describe what the learners ought to know and equipped skills and knowledge. It is essential for learners to achieve those goals (Smith and Ragan, 2005, p.76).
The results obtained from the experiment appear trustworthy and make sense. The results, data, from the experiment show that jumping jacks were the most effective exercise when increasing the heart rate, whereas the resting heart rate is the lowest. The average resting heart rate was 53.33bpm whereas the average heart rate after jumping jacks was 113.33bpm. The average heart rate after jumping jacks was 113.33bpm and 90bpm in trial 2, causing it to be 60pm higher that the average resting heart rate in the first trial. This makes the results from the experiment trustworthy because it shows that the calculation of the heart rates were correct because there was a large difference. Also, performing jumping jacks for one minute is much more physically
The functions of the human cardiopulmonary system can be broken down into two, circulatory system and the respiratory system. The main goal of these two systems is to maintain homeostasis in our body. Homeostasis can be described as a type of condition where the internal continuity of an individual has to keep steadiness, regardless of any external changes from the outside environment. External changes from the outside environment may include factors such as excitement, stress, exercise, diet, and much more. Exercise can be carried out because the human body can endure a high level of exercise during a prolonged period of time. In this experiment, we will focus on how exercise, in particular, affects the cardiopulmonary physiology of boys across different body mass indexes.
Analyse how the principles of training can be applied to the training of a junior representative (16-18 yrs old) Rugby League player.
There are certain medications to help treat a congestive heart failure. A few of the medications include ACE Inhibitors (Angiotensin Converting Enzyme Inhibitors). These help to open up arteries that have narrowed to allow better blood flow. If a patient cannot tolerate ACE inhibitors medication, vasodilators are also an option (Macon B.).
Biofeedback is the use of instrumentation to bring physiological events to conscious awareness. It overall allows you to see what you muscles are doing in a quantified way and learning from that. There is also electromyographic biofeedback, which permits awareness of neural recruitment of muscles by transducing the electrical activity during muscular contraction into audio or visual signals. This is a way to look at how outside signal will be affecting you neural recruitment of your muscles. You can enhance your ability to check visual feedback by using mirrors with your original test. Two other things that you can measure to get a better idea of the athletes biofeedback is heart rate and galvanic skin repose, sweating. You can use a combination of devices to look at neuromuscular re-education and follow with musculoskeletal injury.
As a control for the experiment, a drop of spring water was placed on to the specimen. Once again, the specimen was allowed to acclimate for 5 minutes. Then we obtained the heart rate just as it was done before. This was done with a total of 3 different D. magna.
P6 review physiological data collected, describing the effects of exercise on the musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, respiratory and energy systems
The Apple Watch is a smartwatch created by Apple Inc. It includes fitness tracking and health-oriented capabilities as well as incorporation with iOS and other Apple products and services. Apple announced the Apple Watch with three variants. Firstly there is the original apple watch, secondly there is the apple watch sport and lastly there is the apple watch edition, in which the case is crafted from 18 karat gold. Apple will also include a new voice assistant named Cal into the microchip, and the watch will be distinguished by different combinations of cases and interchangeable bands. The watch relies on a connected iPhone to perform many of its functions and will be compatible with the iPhone 5 or later models running iOS 8.2 software.
Methamphetamine or “Meth” is one of the most addictive and dangerous drugs available. It is a man-made, central nervous system stimulant drug that gives first time users a great “high experience” because of the extreme increase of dopamine levels in the body. Meth has many nicknames including: ice, crystal, chalk, crank and rock. It is responsible for hundreds of deaths every year around the United States. Meth works by rushing dopamine, a neurochemical, into your brain which will lead the user to feel a pleasurable and enjoyable experience. It has the tendency to increase the users body temperature, blood pressure and heart rate. After using meth for the first time the user will usually feel angry, depressed, guilty and angry. They will than
In adults, the elbow is the second most dislocated joint in the body, succeeding shoulder dislocations. Most elbow dislocations occur in the posterior direction, which causes a disengagement of the “coronoid process of the ulna from the trochlea of the humerus” (Chicharoen, Kwon, Windle, & Lovato, 2014). Typically, the mechanism of injury is falling on an outstretched hand (FOOSH) with the elbow in an extended position upon impact. For example, an athlete participating in the first practices for two-a-day fall football was running a defensive back contact drill, and upon collision of the ground, the athlete extended his arm to catch himself. This case study, as like many previous athletes, presented with a shortened forearm that was held in
