Vital Signs Chicago – BP & HR

What do your blood pressure and heart rate really mean? Many students weren’t quite sure, but today, they got the chance to dig a little deeper. However, they did not spend the entire day learning about their blood pressure and heart rates; instead, they got the chance to measure, record, and analyze their own! The students learned the use of the sphygmomanometer and stethoscope then tested the effect of different stimuli on their own blood pressure.

Now that they have a better understanding of the systems within their own bodies, our new-generation of medical professionals are ready to begin learning how they can improve the lives of the world around them!

Here are some pictures from throughout the day.
