## What is your pulse rate lab?

To check your pulse at your wrist, place two fingers between the bone and the tendon over your radial artery — which is located on the thumb side of your wrist. When you feel your pulse, count the number of beats in 15 seconds. Multiply this number by 4 to calculate your beats a minute.

## How do you analyze heart rate data?

To use your heart rate to monitor your exercise intensity, you first need to calculate your maximum heart rate. This can be estimated by subtracting your age from the number 220. For example, someone who is 30 years old would calculate his or her maximum heart rate as follows: 220 – 30 = 190 bpm.

What is the hypothesis of pulse rate?

Hypothesis: If a person increases his or her activity level, then their heart rate will increase due to the body’s cells increased need for oxygen.

What is a pulse bar graph?

The pulse bar or pleth is a graphical representation of how your heart beats; although it does not give you a set of numbers, it gives you an indication of your general health and heart conditions. Pulse assessment has been used in various degrees in medical field.

### What type of graph is used for heart rate?

The easiest thing to do is to plot a histogram. This is a form of bar chart. On the Y-axis you should plot the number of children, while the heart rate ranges go on the X-axis.

### What does pulse rate indicate?

The pulse rate is a measurement of the heart rate, or the number of times the heart beats per minute. As the heart pushes blood through the arteries, the arteries expand and contract with the flow of the blood.

How do you calculate pulse rate?

To check your pulse at your wrist, place two fingers between the bone and the tendon over your radial artery — which is located on the thumb side of your wrist. When you feel your pulse, count the number of beats in 15 seconds. Multiply this number by four to calculate your beats per minute.

How do you read a heart rate monitor?

Heart Rate (HR): Typically, the heart rate is presented at the top of the monitor in green. The number will be identified by a “HR” or “PR” (pulse rate) beside or just above it and is presented in beats per minute (bpm). A normal adult has a resting heart rate between 60-100 bpm.

#### How do you evaluate heart rate variability?

The easiest and cheapest way to check HRV is to buy a chest strap heart monitor (Polar, Wahoo) and download a free app (Elite HRV is a good one) to analyze the data. The chest strap monitor tends to be more accurate than wrist or finger devices.

#### How is oxygen related to pulse?

A decrease in oxygen saturation and increases in pulse rate and heart rate variability were found to be associated with ambient concentration of fine particles. A heart rate acceleration may well result either from impairment of autonomic nervous cardiac control or in response to hypoxia.

What is the normal rate of pulse rate?

The normal pulse for healthy adults ranges from 60 to 100 beats per minute. The pulse rate may fluctuate and increase with exercise, illness, injury, and emotions. Females ages 12 and older, in general, tend to have faster heart rates than do males.
