<ul><li> 1. Anthropometric Tests 3 Resting Heart Rates &amp; Blood Pressure Session 5 </li> <li> 2. <ul><li>Aim To be able to carry out precise health related anthropometric tests on a client and give appropriate feedback.(Assessment 1) </li></ul><ul><li>Objectives </li></ul><ul><li>To demonstrate the ability to locate pulse sites &amp; identify resting heart rates in relation to fitness levels. </li></ul><ul><li>To demonstrate the ability to use blood pressure machines take readings and identify results with any health risks. </li></ul><ul><li>Please Note - If necessary the last objective will be continued in the next session to ensure the tests are completed accurately. </li></ul></li> <li> 3. <ul><li>Last Session you: </li></ul><ul><li>Took body fat measurements using fat calipers on 4 different sites. </li></ul><ul><li>Used the figures to work out, body fat %, lean body weight &amp; Fat body weight. </li></ul><ul><li>Complete Recap worksheet (5 minutes) </li></ul></li> <li> 4. <ul><li>It is important that as a PT you are competent able to take pulse rates quickly and accurately for a number of reasons. </li></ul><ul><li>Pulse rate is an indicator of fitness. </li></ul><ul><li>Pulse rates identify intensity of activities. </li></ul></li> <li> 5. <ul><li>The pulse can be taken in a number of locations. </li></ul><ul><li>The 2 sites you need to be able to locate are: </li></ul><ul><li>The Brachial Artery (wrist) </li></ul><ul><li>The Carotid Artery (throat) </li></ul><ul><li>Take the pulse count the beats for 15 seconds and times by 4 </li></ul><ul><li>Eg. 23 x 4 = 92 beats per minute </li></ul></li> <li> 6. Locate the Brachial artery by placing pressure with the first 2 fingers on the THUMB side of the wrist. </li> <li> 7. </li> <li> 8. <ul><li>Locate your brachial artery. </li></ul><ul><li>Rest your arm comfortably on the table. </li></ul><ul><li>Uncross your legs. </li></ul><ul><li>Record result! </li></ul><ul><li>Locate your caratid artery. </li></ul><ul><li>Uncross your legs. </li></ul><ul><li>Record result! </li></ul><ul><li>COMPLETE WORKSHEET 1 (5 MINUTE TASK) </li></ul></li> <li> 9.

During diastole the ventricles fill with more blood. Systemic pressures fall until more blood is ejected during systole. </li></ul></li> <li> 14. </li> <li> 15. <ul><li>1. Take blood pressure in a quiet room where there are no distractions. </li></ul><ul><li>2. The client should be relaxed and rested. </li></ul><ul><li>3. The client should be seated, legs uncrossed, arm extended at the elbow, and supported at the heart level with palm facing up (supine) </li></ul><ul><li>4. The cuff is placed around the bare upper arm. </li></ul><ul><li>5. The cuff stethoscope should be placed on the brachial artery just above the elbow joint. </li></ul></li> <li> 16. </li> <li> 17. <ul><li>In groups of 3 </li></ul><ul><li>Your are to take turns in taking each others blood pressure. </li></ul><ul><li>1 person to be the client </li></ul><ul><li>1 person to administer test &amp; take readings </li></ul><ul><li>1 person to assess using the worksheet </li></ul><ul><li>Follow the worksheet for group rotation. </li></ul></li> <li> 18. <ul><li>Normal blood pressure is: </li></ul><ul><li>(Systole)120 (Diastole) 80 </li></ul><ul><li>Results should be recorded as 120/80 </li></ul><ul><li>Low blood pressure in young athletic people is common eg as low as 90/70 </li></ul><ul><li>A low risk associated with elevated blood pressures (hypertension) at or above 140/90 </li></ul><ul><li>A high risk and indicative of medical intervention before strenuous exercise is a resting systolic measurement of over 160 </li></ul></li> <li> 19. </li> <li> 20. <ul><li>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. </li></ul><ul><li>You can demonstrate the ability to correctly administer blood pressure tests, using verbal explanations throughout. </li></ul><ul><li>Some of you can analyse the blood pressure readings and give advice on health dangers associated with hypertension and ways to reduce blood pressure. </li></ul></li> <li> 21. <ul><li>Blood pressure </li></ul><ul><li>(continued from last session if needed) </li></ul><ul><li>Bioimpedance (electrical body fat) </li></ul><ul><li>Correct use of electrical equipment. </li></ul><ul><li>Postural analysis </li></ul><ul><li>Essential test for overall health &amp; prevention of injury. </li></ul></li> </ul>
