Biol 20B: Human Anatomy & Physiology Lab 6 — Blood Pressure
Introduction In this lab, you will learn about taking blood pressure, starting with basic techniques in Part I. Expect to write for about 1 hour total.

Part I — Basic Blood Pressure Measurement Techniques

For Part I, watch the following two (2) videos and then write a summary of what you’ve learned from the videos above.

Your summary should be at least 300 words in length. You should write it as a “guide” to your future-self, so that you have something to reference when you learn how to take blood pressure in-person eventually.

For Part II, the goal is to read more about factors that influence blood pressure measurements, many of which change the blood pressure reading significantly. You will be asked to read specific sections of the article below. You are not required to read the whole thing (it is quite long)

You can find any specific section of an article by using the search page function on your computer or smartphone, and this will help you quickly find the paragraph you need to read (Ctrl+F on a PC; Command+F on a mac; “Find on Page” on an iPhone).
