There are a variety of steps that stress will take biologically on your body. To prepare for such an event that may be stressful, the body increases its heart rate and blood pressure; more blood is then sent to your heart and muscles, and your respiration rate increases. In the first stage of stress, alarm, the body mobilizes its "fight or flight" defenses, either to resist the stress-causing factor or adapt to it. In this stage, the pituitary-adrenocortical system pours hormones into the bloodstream. The pulse quickens, the lungs take in more oxygen to fuel the muscles, blood sugar increases to supply added energy, digestion slows, and perspiration increases.
This raises the blood pressure in a similar way to the intake of large amounts of saturated fats; it makes the heart rate increase to enable it to pump the blood round the system (Scott). Kidney disease is another cause of high blood pressure. High blood pressure has different affects on the body and the kidneys play a key role in keeping a person's blood pressure in a healthy range, and blood pressure, in turn, can affect the health of the kidneys.... ... middle of paper ... ...

The seventh report of the joint national committee on prevention, detection, evaluation, and treatment of high blood pressure.
In order to stop this from happening while the music is playing, the anesthesiologist would have to increase the dose of anesthetic, causing further complications with heart rate, breathing, and blood pressure. Another risk with the increased heart rate from the processing of music is increased blood flow. Bleeding during surgery itself is already a problem, but having more bleeding from music could cause further risk and even death. An increase in heart rate pumps more blood faster to all parts of the body. Since the processing of music causes an increase in heart rate, an increase in the amount of blood can potentially be lost.
That is why it would be reffered to as a silent killer. When your heart beats, it squeezes blood through your arteries, blood that exerts pressure against the walls of your arteries; between beats, your heart rests . Blood pressure is the amount of force exerted against the walls of your arteries when your heart beats, and the amount of force exerted when your heart rests. The common form of high blood pressure is a result of hardening of the arteries. The main causes of high blood pressure consist of a person's weight, bad habits, and stress.
The vagal nerve receives this information, then sends impulses to the sinus node to slow the beat of the heart.

Bradycardia due to an increased in vagal nerve impulses along with lack of nutrition may contribute to atrophy of the heart. In addition, different areas of the heart may atrophy more than others. These myocardial modifications have a significant impact on electrical pathways and blood flow.
(American Geriatrics Society & American Association for Geriatric Psychiatry, 2003). The literature also states that depression goes untreated very often among African-Americans. One of the reasons for this may be that cultural differences in the way depression symptoms are manifested, defined, interpreted and labeled may in part explain some of these racial differences in help-seeking behaviors. (O’Connor et al., 2010). In fact, depression looks different for the typical black patient, than the typical white depressed patient.
Blood pressure is a measurement of the force put on the walls of the arteries by the blood (About High Blood Pressure, 2011). The higher the pressure put on the walls of the arteries when the heart pumps the higher then individuals blood pressure will be. The pressure of the blood maybe be high (hypertensive) because of plaque build-up in the arteries, also known as atherosclerosis (Hoeger, 2009, p. 339). This plaque build-up causes the arteries to be narrow and in turn the heart has to pump with more forces to get the needed blood throughout the body. Plaque build-up in the arteries because of many factors such as nutrition, lack of physical activity, and or being overweight or obese.
What is hypertension? Hypertension is a medical condition where the blood pressure in the arteries is elevated. (Nordqvist 2013) Hypertension is commonly known as high blood pressure. If hypertension is left untreated, it can cause severe health problems such as stroke and heart failure. In order to treat hypertension, the drug Losartan is used.
In this type of instance, whether your blood pressure is slightly above or significantly above the normal 120/80 rate, the sooner you seek competent medical assistance the more likely you will be able to get your blood pressure under control. This, in turn, will lessen your risk of more serious health complications. If you have hypertension, this means your heart must work even harder than it should in order to do its job pumping blood. Left untreated, this can result in heart or kidney failure, permanent damage to the eyes, stroke, and serious comp... ... middle of paper ... ...will likely be quite noticeable to you. The key is if the symptom or symptoms are not within your normal range of experience, and that it is not directly related to your normal activities.
Hypertension is a condition, where the force of blood pumping through body is high enough for it to cause internal damage. High blood pressure is determined by measuring the force of the blood against the blood in your arteries and the amount of resistance with the arteries. Blood pressure is measured by sphygmomanometer, this device measures the systolic and diastolic pressures in the arteries. The systolic is the top the number in blood pressure which should be around 120. While the diastolic is the bottom number is around 80.
