Caffeine is a stimulant which will cause an increase in heart rate. This increase should just be temporary, like the increase during exercise. Usually with an increase in HR, there is an increase in BP. As for severely increase, it shouldn't but it will depend on how much caffeine your talking about. Its always best to ask the pediatrician. It actually lowers the heart rate of children during excercise see this http://www.consumeraffairs.com/news04/2006/04/caffeine_kids.html

Caffeine increases blood pressure. As long as minimal amounts are consumed, it will not have long term effects. If a lot of caffeine is consumed on a regular basis, it could affect blood pressure long-term.

Yes, caffeine from any source can affect blood pressure.

Caffeine acts as a diuretic. This means that there is an increase in unination.

Caffeine is a mild stimulant. It causes an increase in heart rate and blood pressure. In people with the medical condition of hypertension (high blood pressure) it can raise the blood pressure too high. Other physical signs of a stimulant like caffeine can be muscle tremors, sweating, restlessness, insomnia, and "jitters".

Caffeine will raise a person's heart rate and blood pressure unless that person has a tolerance for the specific amount of caffeine taken in.

Caffeine can cause a jump in blood pressure and it is often recommended that person's suffering from hypertension avoid it as much as possible. The long term effects of caffeine on blood pressure are still being researched.

When pressure increase the temperature at the boiling point increase and conversely.

User Avatar

In a closed system when temperature increase the pressure also increase.

Caffeine by itself won't kill you, but it can affect blood pressure and the heart.

At high pressure the solubility increase.

If you increase the total peripheral resistance then the arterial blood pressure will increase.

User Avatar

yes it does. caffeine is a stimulant. A stimulant is defined as an chemical that will increase the heart beat. Therefore caffeine intake makes your heart beat quicker.

Pressure affects the density of air by increase of pressure increases the density

Reducing the volume will increase the pressure of the gas.

User Avatar

Cold temperatures increase air pressure.

User Avatar

Increasing the pressure of a gas the volume decrease.

User Avatar

as tempressure decrease and pressure increase the solubility of gases in water increase.

User Avatar

pressure will not affect the volume of solids to the gases:The pressure increases, the gas volume will reduce; The pressure reduces , the gas volume will increase

User Avatar

Yes it does. The ingredients in the drink - mostly taurine, sugar and Caffeine - will cause a spike in blood pressure.

User Avatar

most definitely. Caffeine is a stimulant and it raises blood pressure. Then later you crash. People with high blood pressure should only have 1 cup of coffee in the morning and that is it! None would even be better.

If the pressure increase the number of intermolecular collisions increase and so the reaction rate. This is valid for gases.

yes, caffeine does affect the heart rate
