Question description

Applying Health Care

This project is to help you learn more about some measures health care providers do in the physical assessment of people.  This project has two parts that must be completed.

Part 1a:  Use the information from your textbook pages 419 - 431 on how to take the vital signs of the following: (1) temperature, (2) radial pulse, and (3) respiratory rate.  (Note: taking an apical pulse and taking a blood pressure are not part of this project.  If you happen to have access to a stethoscope and a blood pressure cuff, and want to try taking apical heart rate and blood pressure that is fine, but it is not required for this project). 

Find five people who will volunteer to allow you to take their vital signs.  You will also need to ask their age, which will allow you to determine whether each person's vital signs are within normal range for their age.  Record your data below. Note: if you don’t have access to a thermometer you should record any visible signs of body temperature (as indicated in your textbook). Record the vital signs in the following chart.









Are vital signs all within normal range for age?

Part 1b:  Write two to three paragraphs detailing where the vital signs of your volunteers fall within “normal” parameters and provide an explanation for any participant who did not have a “normal” reading. Explain possible reasons for “why” a participant was outside the “normal” range.

Part 2a:  Use the information from pages 435 – 439 in your  textbook on how to measure height and weight.  Find five people who will volunteer to give you their height and weight, or who will allow you to measure their height and weight.  They can be the same five who volunteered for Part 1.  They should take off their shoes but are allowed to leave their clothes on.  Use each person's data along with the chart on page 439 to determine which of the four BMI categories they are in.  Record your data in the chart that follows.





BMI Category

Part 2b: Evaluate your five participants according to their BMI and choose two participants to write two to three paragraphs about following the outlined criteria. Based on the information you provided, use the five-step problem-solving process to develop a plan for their improvement. Even if one or both of your participants are in the normal weight range, evaluate them if they are at a peak aerobic level or if their flexibility and strength could be improved.

Project 3 will be graded according to the following rubric:

Exceeds Course Expectations

Approaches Course Expectations

Does Not Meet Course Expectations
