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.

Both age and physical fitness can have an effect on heart rate. Insimple terms, the heart is a giant muscle. If you go through yourlife without working out, then this muscle will have to work harderto get its work done, which is helping to supply oxygen to the restof the body. Working out, increases...
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) isnot unusual for babies up to a year old. Children's heartbeats slowbetween the ages of 5 and 13, to reach the normal resting adultrange of 50 to 80 beats per minute.
Yes It May result in a heart attack. Please call 911. If you meantBLOOD 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 100beats per minute. Females tend to have slightly higher restingheart rate than males.
This would depend on several things. Is his heart rate consistentlyelevated or occasionally? If he has other symptoms such as chestpain, shortness of breath, color changes or syncope it may be asign of an underlying health condition. The medical term for a fastheart rate is Tachycardia, which in...
Blood pressure is the measure of how much pressure the blood puts on the arteries measured in millimeters of mercury. Like water putting pressure on a hose. It is measured at two different times. First, when the heart beats it puts more pressure on the arteries. This is the "top" number of the blood...

Thе difference bеtwееn systolic (the upper number) аnd diastolic(the lower number) pressures iѕ knоwn аѕ thе pulse pressure. It iѕproportional tо stroke volume, thе amount оf blood pumped frоm thеheart in оnе beat, аnd inversely proportional t...
An unusually high body temperature than persists.
Heart rate, stroke volume and total peripheral resistance.
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).

It can. Recent research has shown that there is a reaction to music by an increase in brain activity and heart rate. Different music produces different reactions.
Yes, that blood pressure sounds normal. For most people, normal isbetween 100-160 on top, between 55-90 on the bottom. Make sure youcheck your blood pressure after resting about five minutes for anaccurate reading.
About 300-350 psi, although there is little cause for concern unless you find your baby's blood pressure is regularly above 400 psi. This is why regular checkups are so important! Best wishes for you and your child, Thomas Harvey, M.D. Chicago General Hospital

No, a fever is not a symptom. Symptoms are subjective feelings that the patient experiences. Feeling hot would be a symptom. A sign is an objective observation, such as the temperature of the person. If that temperature is above normal we call it a fever.
no you have a fever! 37 is normal.

It is known that dengue fever can affect the heart in several ways, including weakened force and speed of contraction and slowed pulse rate. Along with some other febrile illnesses ( illnesses with fever) dengue may demonstrate "relative bradyardia", that is, heart rate lower than would be expected...
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.
Blood pressure is read in two parts, diastolic and systolic. It is documented as diastolic/systolic, example, a normal blood pressure is 120/80.
A high pulse rate is when a person has a resting heartbeat of over100 beats per minute. This can be caused by many different thingsand your doctor will most likely want some tests done.
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 morecarbon dioxide. When a fit person, such as an athlete, exercisesthe pulse rate , breathing rate and lactic acid levels rise much less than they do in anunfit person.

effects of improper way of getting vital sings you can not help thepatient in his sickness
Resting pulse? Is this your heart rate while your sitting around watching tv, or after you've had a nice long walk? How much to you weigh? What's your family history? There are too many factors (good and bad) that can produce this pulse rate. Talk with your doctor and tell him/her all the details...
Yes it is,,,while one part of the heart is in systole (ie ventricles) the other part is in diastole (ie atrium) the blood is continually moving thru the body via the arteries and veins via the cardiac output. There is always a little blood left in the ventricles after Systole though.....
A sudden spike in blood pressure is usually nothing to worry aboutif you have normal blood pressure to begin with. It can be a signof exertion, stress, or anxiety and will usually fall within a fewminutes.
If you get an incorrect BP, the medication given (if needed) willbe incorrect. These meds are not without side effects.
