How are blood pressure, heart rate, and exercise related? What is the baroreceptor response? Explore the human circulatory system's response to exercise in this very “active” student laboratory kit. Engaged students gain experience using a stethoscope and sphygmomanometer as they measure their blood pressure and heart rate while at rest, while reclining, and after exercise. They then learn how these different measurements are combined to evaluate relative cardiac fitness. Background information provides a thorough explanation of blood pressure, heart rate, and the baroreceptor response. Future health professionals will gain valuable knowledge of human physiology as well as practical experience. Kit contains enough equipment for 10 groups of students to experience the dynamic experiment at the same time. Ten stethoscopes, a sphygmomanometer, student worksheets, background information, detailed procedures, and comprehensive Teacher Notes are included.
