Anthropometric tests blood pressure   session 5 Anthropometric tests blood pressure session 5 Presentation Transcript

  • Anthropometric Tests 3 Resting Heart Rates & Blood Pressure Session 5
    • Aim – To be able to carry out precise health related anthropometric tests on a client and give appropriate feedback.(Assessment 1)
    • Objectives –
    • To demonstrate the ability to locate pulse sites & identify resting heart rates in relation to fitness levels.
    • To demonstrate the ability to use blood pressure machines take readings and identify results with any health risks.
    • Please Note - If necessary the last objective will be continued in the next session to ensure the tests are completed accurately.
    • Last Session you:
    • Took body fat measurements using fat calipers on 4 different sites.
    • Used the figures to work out, body fat %, lean body weight & Fat body weight.
    • Complete Recap worksheet (5 minutes)
    View slide
    • It is important that as a PT you are competent able to take pulse rates quickly and accurately for a number of reasons.
    • Pulse rate is an indicator of fitness.
    • Pulse rates identify intensity of activities.
    View slide
    • The pulse can be taken in a number of locations.
    • The 2 sites you need to be able to locate are:
    • The Brachial Artery (wrist)
    • The Carotid Artery (throat)
    • Take the pulse count the beats for 15 seconds and times by 4
    • Eg. 23 x 4 = 92 beats per minute
  • Locate the Brachial artery by placing pressure with the first 2 fingers on the THUMB side of the wrist.
  •  
    • Locate your brachial artery.
    • Rest your arm comfortably on the table.
    • Uncross your legs.
    • Record result!
    • Locate your caratid artery.
    • Uncross your legs.
    • Record result!
    • COMPLETE WORKSHEET 1 (5 MINUTE TASK)

    • What different factors could affect this test?
    • What do you need to consider each time you do this test on a client?
    • Purpose-
    • To measure resting blood pressure at systole (heart contraction) and diastole (heart relaxation) as recorded in the arm.
    • Blood pressures outside the normal range are indicators of poor health and can represent a significantly higher chance of cardiovascular disease.
    • The measurement is part of the screening process prior to exercise prescription and an indicator of any changes needed in lifestyle.
    • Systole, The highest pressures occur during systole as blood is ejected into the  aorta  and subsequent arteries of the body. 
    • Diastole , the heart's resting phase, follows systole. During diastole the ventricles fill with more blood. Systemic pressures fall until more blood is ejected during systole.
  •  
    • 1. Take blood pressure in a quiet room where there are no distractions.
    • 2. The client should be relaxed and rested.
    • 3. The client should be seated, legs uncrossed, arm extended at the elbow, and supported at the heart level with palm facing up (supine)
    • 4. The cuff is placed around the bare upper arm.
    • 5. The cuff stethoscope should be placed on the brachial artery just above the elbow joint.
  •  
    • In groups of 3
    • Your are to take turns in taking each others blood pressure.
    • 1 person to be the client
    • 1 person to administer test & take readings
    • 1 person to assess using the worksheet
    • Follow the worksheet for group rotation.
    • Normal blood pressure is:
    • (Systole)120 (Diastole) 80
    • Results should be recorded as 120/80
    • Low blood pressure in young athletic people is common eg as low as 90/70
    • A low risk associated with elevated blood pressures (hypertension) at or above 140/90
    • A high risk and indicative of medical intervention before strenuous exercise is a resting systolic measurement of over 160
  •  
    • You now know how to locate and take resting pulse in 2 locations. You can then describe fitness levels using the charts you have been given.
    • You can demonstrate the ability to correctly administer blood pressure tests, using verbal explanations throughout.
    • Some of you can analyse the blood pressure readings and give advice on health dangers associated with hypertension and ways to reduce blood pressure.
    • Blood pressure
    • (continued from last session if needed)
    • Bioimpedance (electrical body fat)
    • Correct use of electrical equipment.
    • Postural analysis
    • Essential test for overall health & prevention of injury.
