Why or why not? These are otherwise described as orthostatic vital signs with the addition of exercise to identify potential stress related conditions. The typical patient should not have a decrease of more than 20 mmHg systolic or 10 mmHg diastolic during this test (Betts, 2017) B) What did you notice with the BP when going from a supine position to a standing or recumbent position? How does orthostatic hypotension relate to this situation- going from supine to a standing position? The BP typically stays the same or varies slightly as the body compensates for the increase in pressure required to move blood away from the heart. Likewise, if you do not wait a minute or so, the BP may vary greatly as the body is still using compensatory mechanisms to adjust to the new position, hence BP may be increased immediately after exercise when compared to 3 minutes after (Betts, 2017). C) Explain how the changes in BP and HR relate to the cardiac output specifically with the exercise and post-exercise measurements? As BP increases, cardiac output must also increase in order to force blood out in to circulation. HR is the speed at which the heart pumps this blood which will both increase cardiac output (minute volume) and exert more pressure to ensure blood is moving away from the heart (Betts, 2017). Part 02 Procedure: Auscultation of the Heart

1. Auscultation basically means to listen to internal organs to assist in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions. Being able to auscultate the heart, you must have a solid knowledge of the cardiac cycle and the heart valves. Locate a stethoscope and carefully determine if the diaphragm side is activated. 2. Utilizing the chart in Appendix B, locate and auscultate the four heart valves. Your lab partner should be of the same sex. Have your lab partner sitting and slightly lean forward. It is more effective to have the diaphragm of the stethoscope directly against the skin but this technique will not be utlized in our laboratory setting. Place the diaphragm side of the stethoscope directly against the clothing and have your lab partner exhale and then hold their breath while you listen to heart sounds. 3. Record your observations below: Sounds Observations S1: Lub Slower, softer S2: Dub Faster, louder Extra sounds? None 4. What sort of heart complication would be present if: a. There was an extra sound between the Lub and Dub sounds?

    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.
