MODULE 2: LESSON 1 ASSIGNMENT Procedure 1) Using a watch with a second hand or a stopwatch, time your partner for 2 min as he or she sits in a comfortable chair with eyes closed and takes deep, relaxing breaths. 2) When the 2-min “relaxation period” is up, take your partner’s pulse and measure his or her blood pressure. Look at the picture below for the correct placement of the fingers in order to feel the strongest pulse. If you are measuring the pulse manually, count the number of pulses in 15 s and then multiply by 4 to get the heart rate per minute. If you are using a digital blood pressure monitor, it may measure the pulse for you. If you are using a digital blood pressure monitor, be sure to follow the instructions provided with the machine. If you are using a manual blood pressure cuff or a digital monitor, you can leave the deflated cuff on your partner’s arm for the next step. Record the pulse and blood pressure in the data table in the Lesson 1 Assignment. These values will provide baseline data for your partner in a relaxed state. 3) Note the time and administer the test to your partner. Your partner will have 2 min to complete the test questions provided by your teacher. Try to bother your partner by telling him or her to hurry up and that time is running out. This is your chance to stress out your partner! 4) At the end of the 2 min shout, “Time is up!” Immediately take and record your partner’s pulse and blood pressure. Record the data for Reading 2 in the data table in the Lesson 1 Assignment. Check and record your partner’s pulse and blood pressure again after another 2 min (Reading 3), and then again 2 min after that (Reading 4).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
