Abstract

This study aimed to clarify the appropriate duration of rest for measurement of the blood pressure and pulse at rest. Twenty-seven students belonging to the Department of Physical Therapy, K-University performed exercise using the 30-second chairstand test, and their pulses and blood pressure were measured at intervals of 30 seconds for 5 minutes immediately after the termination of exercise to clarify changes in these items. The pulse significantly decreased until 2 minutes after exercise, without marked subsequent changes. No significant changes were observed in the diastolic blood pressure during the 5-minute period, while the systolic blood pressure showed 2 different patterns:descending (17): increasing after exercise and subsequently decreasing; and ascending (10):decreasing after exercise and subsequently increasing. In the descending pattern, a significant decrease in the value was observed from immediately to 2 minutes after exercise,without marked subsequent changes. In the ascending pattern, the pressure significantly increased from immediately to 30 seconds after exercise, was maintained without marked changes until after 4 minutes and 30 seconds, and significantly decreased, showing a value similar to that immediately after exercise at 5 minutes. These results suggest the necessity of setting the duration of rest in consideration of these patterns in individual cases before measurement of the blood pressure and pulse.
