The Effect of Exercise on Breathing, Blood Pressure and Heart Rate Introduction The human respiratory system function is to transport oxygen from the lungs to the tissues of the body. The human circulatory system function is to transport blood from the heart to the various tissues of the body. The components of the human circulatory system include the heart, blood, and blood vessel (M.J. Farabee 2007). Blood pressure is typically written as Systolic/Diastolic. A normal blood pressure range for an adult in Systolic is less than 120 and in diastolic is less than 80. If blood pressure is too high (hypertension) or too low (hypotension) it can cause medical issues for the individual (American Heart Association 2013). The relationship between the human respiratory system and the human circulatory system is the blood that carries the oxygen from the lungs through the blood vessel to deliver it to the various tissues of the body. The propose of this experiment is to know how can the respiratory system and the circulatory system be influence by Physical activities and to know the relationship between the two systems in different conditions. Objective / Hypothesis Ho: Exercise will not affect the tidal volume HA: Exercise will affect the tidal volume Ho: Exercise will not affect the number of breaths per minute. HA: Exercise will affect the number of breaths per minute. Ho: Physical activity will not affect systolic pressure. HA: Physical activity will affect systolic pressure. Ho: Physical activity will not affect heart rate. HA: Physical activity will affect heart rate. Methods Twelve individuals divided into two groups of six males and six females were used for this experiment.
