Finally, it our turn for cardiovascular project which is basically an experiment about the effect of exercise on heart rate and blood pressure. This study also teaches us to measure heart rate through radial pulse and also using the sphymomanometer and stethoscope.
First, we measure the initial rate, then do the step up exercise, and lastly measure the rate after exercise. It sounds easy, but quite tedious and consumed much time. 8 person did the exercise. We took turns to measure the participant heart rate and blood pressure.
I did the data recording. It's quite confusing if many readings were taken at a same time. Need to hear them carefully, and make sure the data was jotted down correctly. We don't want other's people reading to be in someone else name.
Our supervisor, Dr. Sufyan on checked on our activity at the beginning of the experiment, and then he's gone.
Since I'm quite free (not that free actually), I managed to capture several shots of our activity.

Thanks Mei Ying!
Looks like we have to start doing of project report. One more burden is added to my shoulder. Wahhh... Got Foundation Pharmacy Essay to be hand in next week. 2000 words!!!!
