Unformatted text preview: Another possible error for the high pulse rate could be because it was not the resting heart rate.

One way that these results could be better taken would be early in the morning when the subject had not yet taken any sort of medication. Conclusion: Overall, the technique on how to measure pulse was the greatest learned benefit. The hypothesis here was generally correct. The heart rate varied slightly and could have better been measured over a 60 second interval rather than a 15 second interval and then simply multiplied by four to obtain a predicted rate in beats per minute.
