High blood pressure. Reduced fertility and many more. Alcohol also affects your working performances as well as your health. Alcohol affects your breathing and your organs. Alcohol is very high in calories and if you do not do regular exercise you can gain weight very quickly.
I would begin by explaining that blood pressure is the force that your blood exerts on your arteries. If you have high blood pressure it means that your blood is exerting too much force on your arteries and is making your heart’s job even harder. Your heart is a powerful and efficient muscle, but if made to work to hard for too long, it can enlarge and wear out or even fail. This can also cause a heart attack, stroke, even an early death. When you take your blood pressure, you will see two numbers referred to as your systolic and diastolic blood pressure.
This affected me during the bleep test because vasodilation allows more oxygenated blood to travel to the actively respiring muscle tissues. Other acute responses which occur to the musculoskeletal system during exercise include an increase in muscle pliability. If your muscles get warmer because of the contraction temperature is going to rise this makes them more pliable and reduces the risk of injury. Pliability is the stretchiness of the muscles. There is also an increase in the synovial fluid at the joint.
Polycythemia is an increase in red blood cells, which would increase the viscosity and decrease flow. ACTIVITY 3 Studying the Effect of Blood Vessel Length on Blood Flow Rate 1. Which is more likely to occur, a change in blood vessel radius or a change in blood vessel length? Explain why. Increase in blood vessel radius is more likely to occur.
Restate your predictions that were correct and give data from your experiment that support them. Restate your predictions that were not correct and correct them, giving supporting data from your experiment that supports your corrections. During exercise HR, SV, and CO will all increase due to the increased demand of oxygen needed throughout the body as well as the increased pumping action of the heart having to work faster to get blood to the tissues during exercise Application 1. We measured the stroke volume of the left ventricle. What was the average stroke volume of the right ventricle at rest and
This occurs when the heart becomes weakened and enlarged, and congestive heart failure follow quickly. The signs and symptoms are left and right heart failure, the autopsy signs would include central hemorrhagic necrosis in the liver. Hypertrophic is the other one which is just as our skeletal muscles hypertrophy in response to increased demand, cardiac muscle undergoes hypertrophy when placed under a high workload for a prolonged period of time. Pathologic hypertrophy is a result of disease that place increased demand on the heart, such as chronic hypertension, valvular damage, and myocardial infarction. The left ventricular hypertrophy is the most common type of hypertrophic heart disease.
Ideally, your BP reading must be below 120/80mmHg but anything under 130/80mmHg is still considered normal. If your BP reading consistently shows 140/90mmHg or higher, then your blood pressure is high. If you have diabetes, kidney disease or any condition affecting the heart and blood circulation, target a blood pressure below 130/80mmHg. Blood pressure that is dangerously high – a systolic pressure of 180 and above or a diastolic of 110 and above, is known as hypertensive crisis and requires emergency medical treatment. In addition, a person in hypertensive crisis may report severe anxiety, severe headaches and shortness of
Pressure overload usually results from an obstructive lesion, such as COA c. Decrease contractility can result from problems such as sever anemia, asphyxia, heart block and acidemia. d. High cardiac output demands occur when the body’s need for oxygen exceeds the heart’s output
This elevation in blood pressure is typically due to damage to the arterial walls, which causes them to lose the elasticity they need to restrict and dilate normally. This leads to increased pressure as the heart has to work harder to push the blood through the narrowed arteries. The increased pressure also puts more strain on the arteries, which in turn causes more damage within the walls than can cause fatty substances in the blood to stick to those areas
Hyperthyroidism speeds up the body’s metabolism which in turn makes the body have a significant weight loss, a weird heartbeat, sweating profusely, and nervousness. This disease can also come from other types of problems, but to know if it is Hyperthyroidism, it will have to have more than a few of the diseases. Other types of problems include tremors, goiters, and medications can cover any of the signs of the causes (Hormone). To figure out if there is an overactive thyroid (Hyperthyroidism), doctors have the patients take a few
