Cardiovascular response to respiratory muscle loading: Effect of menopausal status in women
We are recruiting volunteer subjects for a blood pressure study at UBC with Michael Leahy:
I am looking for active individuals to help me complete my doctoral dissertation! Specifically, I am looking for healthy men and women between the ages of 18-35 and 55-75 years old to participate in my study. My study looks to observe the blood pressure response to respiratory muscle work (hard breathing). Overall, I am looking at looking at the effect of menopause in blood pressure regulation. More information is also available here.
It is a single visit study (~2.5 hours), where we measure resting heart and lung function, and then complete what is essentially a workout for your breathing muscles while monitoring the blood pressure response.
