Factors affecting Blood Pressure


Measuring blood pressure is a common procedure in hospitals and doctor offices. We use blood pressure to determine the activity of our circulatory system and the overall condition of our body. Blood pressure is often used as a symptom or indication for certain physical and health conditions.

The question is what factors or conditions may affect the blood pressure? 

Does our blood pressure change through different times of the day? Does it change when we sleep or after we eat food? Does it have anything to do with our age? Does it have anything to do with our bodies sugar consumption? Does physical activity affect our blood pressure?

 Project description:
In this project you will study one or more factors that may affect blood pressure. You will perform an experiment to determine the effect of any specific factor on blood pressure and record your observations in a data table. You will then use your data table to draw a graph.
