Several months ago, I purchased my own sphygmomanometer and stethoscope to practice, when ever and on & whoever would let me take their BP to get good at it.
It's such a cool thing to take Mario's BP, because he sits totally still and doesn't talk when he is listening for all the sounds.
I found it interesting how your BP is way low when you first wake up in the morning, and this jives very clearly, since your sleeping. It's cool to listen to my blood pressure as soon as I wake up. Plus, your pulse rate is very slow, so cool
Yesterday I got shocked when, after I took my BP first thing, and got the normal sounds, I decided to take my axillary pulse with the stethoscope. Until that time, I considered the axillary pulse to be rather boring, and always listened to my pulse via the brachial artery with the BP cuff, if I wanted to listen close.
Yesterday my heart was squeaking when I put the stethoscope on it first thing! It was squeaking!
I never heard my heart squeak, and got really scared!
Am I dying
"Why is my heart making this squeaking sound with each beat" I wondered with amazement.
So I paniced a little and took deep breaths and stretched my chest out and listened again...and the squeaking stopped. PHEW!!! :imbar I tell you, i just about fainted.
Why does a heart make a squeaking sound when your asleep? I presented this question to one person who said my heart was oxygenating.
Tell me my heart has no oxygen when I sleep. Dear friends, my heart beat IS the one thing I depend on to be consistant (and not squeak). Because I don't feel strange, and I really believe I am healthy (and the squeaking stopped), it's not wigging me out too much, but it certainly is an event, and now I won't be listening to my boring BP anymore, first thing in the morning. Mario will have his stethoscope trained on his axillary pulse and his squeaking heart.
Please, can anyone give me a "punchline" answer/reason why a person's heart will squeak with each beat immediately when they wake up and have not had their first deep breath and stretch?
Sincerely and Respectfully,
