Features 13 core lab activities coverign the fundamental concepts of physiology, ecology, plant systems and more

Recovery Heart Rate

Lab Summary

Use a heart rate sensor to determine students’ resting heart rate, their heart rate with exercise, and their recovery heart rate.

Theory

Students determine the effect of exercise on their heart rate and find their recovery heart rate, which is a measure of fitness.

Method

Students gain experience conducting the following procedures:

  • Using an exercise heart rate sensor to determine their resting heart rate, their heart rate with exercise, and their recovery heart rate
  • Applying statistics (mean, median, and range) to data collected for the entire class and calculating the percentage change of their measured heart rates

Sensors / Equipment Used:

PASPORT Hand Grip Heart Rate Sensor

(PS-2186)

An easy way to measure resting and exercise heart rate without the restrictions of belts or clips. For use with PASPORT Interfaces.
