Pressure fluctuation in the Aorta due to the closing of the Aortic Semilunar valve...kind of like pressure you feel when you close a door quickly and no windows are open...
SUPERFICIAL PULSE POINTS
- Superificial Temporal
- Common Carotid
- Posterior Tibial
- Dorsalis Pedis
DIFFERENCE BETWEEN APICAL & RADIAL PULSE
Apical (Near the heart) is slightly faster than the Radial pulse due to distance from the heart.
Pulse Deficit: Greater lag in time due to:
1. Cardiac impairment
2. Low cardiac output
3. Abnormal heart rhythms
BP= CO x PR
Arterial BP = Cardiac Output x Peripheral Resistance
1. Increase of Blood vessel constriction
2. Increase of Blood viscosity
3. Decrease of Arterial Elasticity
INDEX OF PHYSICAL FITNESS
Duration of exercise (seconds) x 100/ 2 + sum of 3 pulse counts in recovery (one minute each)
