Vital Signs

Parent Category: Health
Vital signs are measurable indicators of essential body functions. The vital signs of a human being are his/her temperature, respiratory rate, heart beat called the pulse rate, and blood pressure. All of these vital signs can be observed, measured, and monitored. When these values are not zero, they indicate that a person is alive.

The heart rate is affected by the body activity and position for  example during rest the rate will be around 60 100 beats per  minutes. Also when you are lying down the hearts beats at a fewer  rate than when you are standing or sitting, this is possible  because the body gravity is reduced...
Both age and physical fitness can have an effect on heart rate. In  simple terms, the heart is a giant muscle. If you go through your  life without working out, then this muscle will have to work harder  to get its work done, which is helping to supply oxygen to the rest  of the body. Working...
Yes. A newborn baby has a heart rate comparable to that of a fetus.  A heart rate of 80 to 140 beats per minute (or slightly faster) is  not unusual for babies up to a year old. Children's heartbeats slow  between the ages of 5 and 13, to reach the normal resting adult  range of 50 to 80 beats...
Yes It May result in a heart attack. Please call 911. If you meant  BLOOD PRESSURE it is fine.
I had a surgery called a sympathectomy. It caused my blood pressure to drop to 30/15 for the first year after. My Dr.'s at Barrow's in Phoenix told me I should not be alive. That was 13 years ago. It has slowly gone up and now runs 90/60.
Children 11-17 can heave a heart rate range anywhere from 60 to 100  beats per minute. Females tend to have slightly higher resting  heart rate than males.
This would depend on several things. Is his heart rate consistently  elevated or occasionally? If he has other symptoms such as chest  pain, shortness of breath, color changes or syncope it may be a  sign of an underlying health condition. The medical term for a fast  heart rate is Tachycardia,...

No, 150 per minute is an abnormal one.
Laying down is best. Before any type of physical activity. It can  be done multiple ways as far as time goes. For beats per minute  (bpm) 30x2 or 15x4 is the most common. The more time used i.e 30x2  the more accurate the reading. Also a form of distraction can help  as some may be nervous or...
When you are exercising your heart rate goes up, because your heart  is pumping faster.
Your heart rate increases after exercise.
The normal resting heart rate for children from 1 to 2 years old is  80 to 130 beats per minute.
Heart rates vary from person to person depending on age and fitness. A normal resting heart rate is generally considered to be 60-100 beats per minute, but can be as low as 40 beats per minute. A generalized resting heart rate for a 36 to 45 year old female with a good fitness level is 63 to 66...
Thе difference bеtwееn systolic (the upper number) аnd diastolic  (the lower number) pressures iѕ knоwn аѕ thе pulse pressure. It iѕ  proportional tо stroke volume, thе amount оf blood pumped frоm thе  heart in оnе beat, аnd inversely proportional tо thе compliance оr ...
An unusually high body temperature than persists.
The heart does not have enough time between contractions to fill with enough blood to maintain adequate cardiac output. This is especially a concern because the heart itself is perfused during diastole (the period between ventricular contractions).
For most adults, your blood pressure should run between 100-160 on  top. The bottom number should be between 55-90. Check your blood  pressure after resting for at least five minutes, when sitting  comfortably with your feet flat on the floor. If your blood  pressure is running outside the above...

not really, as long as it is under 100 is consideret normal.although some times in can go up to 120 or even more just becauseshe might be anxious or stress, this is normal.
Your  heart speeds up to pump extra food and oxygen to the muscles.  Breathing speeds up to get more oxygen and to get rid of more  carbon dioxide. When a fit person, such as an athlete, exercises  the  pulse rate, breathing  rate and lactic acid levels rise much less than they do in an ...

Rest or sleep, Depressant drugs, shock, dehydration, hemorrage (excessive loss of blood), and fasting (not eating).
To hear the proper apical heartbeat you have to put the stethoscope  fifth intercostal space for adults & old and for young and  infants put the stethoscope fourth intercostal space.
No, core body temp is different than external body temp, make sure the temp was takin' correctly be alarmed if its under 93 or above 100

The best way to reduce the effects of cotton fever is not to use  cotton to filter the drug solutions. This is not a excuse not to  filter the drug solutions, or to use a poor substitute. The effects  of cotton fever are pretty minor compared to the effects of not  using a filter which could be...

it can help by increasing reabsorption of water by the kidney. With the reabsorption, blood plasma volume increases, thus raising blood pressure
Your body homeostatically adjusts your body temperature. The brain has a internal thermostat that is set to its ideal temperature. When the body is hot, nerve receptors in the skin pick up the message and send it to the brain. The brain in turn causes the release of hormones that causes a slightly...
Pressure is the same as force / unit area.
120 over 80 is the idea blood pressure but blood pressure increases with age. 140 over 90 and above is defined as hypertension. You want to be near 120/80 to 139/89 ideally. It also depends on your normal blood pressure range. If you normally run slightly over 120/80 you have a normal high blood...
Here is a simplified explanation. The Kidneys primary role is to filter the waste products from our blood. Picture a "Brita" water filter and that's basically how they work. The waste is excreted along with excess fluid in our urine. Now if your blood pressure is too low, there is no force to "push"...

Systole - Contraction of the heart during which blood is forced out of the heart to the body
130 to 139 to figure out your normal systolic blood pressure: P≤1/2a+110 P is the pressure, and 'a' is your age. . Divide your age by 2, then add 110. That number should be yourmaximum systolic blood pressure.
The respiratory rate i.e. the breathing rate per minute drops down from the normal breathing rate. It is because during a heart attack, heart cannot supply enough oxygen to the body resulting in diminished breath.
You can if you want but in my opion i wouldn't because it might get the baby sick too
Yes! Your heart slow down when sleeping.
What could cause high blood pressure in 19 year old
Normal core temperature should be 98.6.
false, stroke volume decreases if the end volume decreases.
Heart Rate, Respiratory Rate, Blood Pressure, Temperature, and some consider Oxygen Saturation.
Blood pressure norms in children are based on height and age.
Higher than usual body temperature (above 37.6 degree celcius).
You might be able to "beat" a blood pressure test by relaxing as  much as possible and staying calm before you have the test in order  to temporarily lower your blood pressure. Of course, if you have  high blood pressure, the result of "fooling" the test could result  in your death, so it might...
I'm not sure if this will help or not but I found a link to a site that has pretty good information. You might want to look in to homeopathy and meditation? http://www.herbs2000.com/disorders/high_blood.htm Good luck :)
Modern electronic thermometers only need a few seconds; check the  instrument's instruction manual because different models may vary.    Old-style mercury thermometers should remain in the mouth for about  3 minutes.
It can have a very bad effect. http://www.nofas-uk.org/

The answer is sugar because you have to think about it. It helps flavor blood sugar is the number one problem people get high blood pressure key word: FLAVOR FOOD ; HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE.
Absolutely not! 120 is normal. Hypertension at 162
standing because the heart must pump blood to the whole body while fighting gravity.
YOUR bp RANGE SHOULD BE BETWEEN 120-130 OVER 60-80PULSE 70 (AT REST)ANYTHING OVER 140/90 FOR A LONG TIME PERIOD IS CONSIDERED TO HAVE HYPERTENSION (HIGH Bp) AND SHOULD GO TO A DR. FOR GUIDANCE

If your body temperature drops dramatically then your cells start to die, this means you could die of hypothermia. However, if it only slightly falls then goose bumps appear and your hairs stand on end to create a protective barrier keeping as much heat in as possible. Then, most of your blood goes...
Depends on how high your blood pressure is and whether or not you are using crystal meth. Not really.
