In the part of the capillary network near the arterial end, blood pressure is much higher than that of the tissue fluid so that the difference in hydrostatic pressure exceeds the osmo...

  • Heart Rate And Systolic Blood Pressure
    1,460 words
    Abstract The aim of the study was to investigate the effects exercise had on heart rate, systolic and diastolic blood pressure. The aim was to compare heart rate, systolic and diastolic blood pressure between lying supine and when cycling at 100 W intensity and to detect any significant differences. The group of subjects comprised 10 first year Sports Science male (n = 7) and female (n = 3) students. Measurements of subjects heart rate and blood pressure were recorded when lying supine and in th...
