what does the stethoscope on a blood pressure pump?
used to hear the sound of blood rushing back through the artery
what is happening when you first hear a thumping noise
it is the sound of systolic blood pressure
what is happening when you no longer hear a noise
that is the diastolic pressure

what is tachycardia
when the QRS complex is really fast and close together, about or over 100 bpm
what cardiac event is occurring when you see the p wave in the ECG?
atrial depolarization
when the heart is resting between heartbeats, the pressure experienced by blood vessels is the __________ pressure
diastolic
what does an ECG do
measures the electrical activity from the heart
records activity which as spread into body fluids and reaches the surface
reports the total activity from the heart
what are the waves of an ECG
- p wave: atrial depolarization
- QRS wave complex: ventricular depolarization
- T wave: ventricular repolarization
where is atrial depolarization show on the waves
it does not show because it is masked by the QRS complex
P wave is much smaller than the QRS wave complex because the atria are smaller and weaker than the ventricles
how are abnormalities in cardiac activity determined
by the distance between consecutive QRS complexes
less than 60 bpm
tachycardia
over 100 bpm
describe the heart sounds
