I slipped my clinical thermometer into his armpit and counted his pulse rate.
There is fever and acceleration of pulse rate and respirations.
The pulse rate must also be known in order to compute the velocity.
On the 6th the pulse was 82, and the temperature fell with the pulse rate.
We know that when the pulse rate is constant, vasodilatation causes a fall in diastolic pressure and a rise in pulse pressure.
Pulse pressure, pulse rate, and the relative velocity of the blood flow are increased immediately upon the ingestion of meals.
Following exercise the pulse rate increases, the systolic pressure rises greatly, the diastolic slightly or not at all.
This so-called law is that in pneumonia the systolic pressure in millimeters should remain above the figure for the pulse rate.
There is no doubt, however, that anxiety about the heart will quicken or slow the pulse rate.
He had been hand-picked and thoroughly conditioned to take it all without more than a ten percent increase in his pulse rate.
