How is resting metabolic rate measured?

Measure or calculate: It can be measured by a special calorimeter machine that may be found in some physicians offices. It can also be estimated using the mifflin st. Jeor equation, which differs for men and women: women rmr (calories/day) = (10 x weight (kg) + (6.25 x height (cm) - (5 x age (yrs) - 161. To get weight in kg, multiply pounds by .45. To get height in cm, multiply inches by 2.54. ...Read more

Does pulse rate increase as BP increases?

Does pulse rate increase as BP increases?

Not necessarily: Pulse and BP are somewhat independent. Many things that raise your pulse also raise bp, but that is not always true and the opposite is also true. For example very low BP due to shock is accompanied by very high pulse rate and very high pulse rate is often associated with lack of forward flow and very low bp. ...Read more

Dr measured Bp 103/69 pulse 90. Athlete. Good?

Rapid Heart Rate: Your blood pressure is great but your HR is notably high for a conditioned athlete. Most endurance athletes achieve HR's in the 60bpm range. The heart learns to beat more forcefully and not as fast to deliver blood, oxygen and nutrients to skin, muscle and vital organs. The tissues also learn to extract more oxygen and nutrients from blood and V02max increases. Your HR of 90bpm may reflect anxiety ...Read more
