Biopac Student Lab Lesson 16 Homework

©BIOPAC Systems, Inc L16 – Blood Pressure Page P-19 Fig. 16.16 Subject and Director Positioning Fig. 16.17 Rotate ear tube for comfort Problems you may encounter: a) You can’t hear the Korotkoff sounds . Some Subjects may not produce loud enough Korotkoff sounds. This does not mean that anything is wrong with the person’s physical state. If this is the case, wait one minute and repeat the measurement using a slightly different position for the stethoscope diaphragm and/or using the other arm. Another possibility is that your hearing is not acute enough to detect the sounds, but the recording is picking them up, which for the purposes of this lesson is ok. In a real clinical setting, if you could not hear the sounds, you would need to try a strictly palpatory method to get the reading. For this lab, since you probably have a time constraint, consider changing Subjects . b) You hear an auscultatory gap . Wait at least 1 minute, and then try the measurement again. If this second reading fails, then use the palpatory method with the brachial or radial artery while inflating the cuff and note the point where the pulse is no longer felt. This value will be Subject’s approximate systolic pressure value. The diastolic value should be found the normal way (disappearance of all sounds). The recording will not be accurate, but it will allow you to finish the lessons and answer the questions.

Biopac Student Lab Intro MP45

The Biopac Student Lab system is an integrated solution that allows students to record data from their own bodies. More than just a data recorder, Biopac Student Lab comes complete with hardware, software, and guided physiology lessons.

Biopac Student Lab revolutionizes how students learn the life sciences by eliminating complex setup tasks and letting them focus on learning the subject. Use the power of the BSL System to conduct the most widely studied responses in physiology labs.

Powerful and flexible, yet easy to use, BSL software allows students to get started right away. To run a lesson, simply select it from a menu and follow the prompts to collect good data. As your needs or budget change, you can add transducers to run more lessons. The MP45 works with existing BSL hardware, too, so this is a budget-conscious solution for adding more systems to your lab.

Dynamic experiments with students as subjects increase interest and retention. Promote student inquiry with advanced options or develop user-defined lessons and research projects. Perform analysis online or off; sophisticated algorithms provide beat-by-beat analysis of the primary physiological signals.
