  Artifact 4 Homeostasis and Me Homeostasis is the body maining a stable balance for optimal survival. Cells can only function in a narrow range of of conditions. This is why homeostasis is an essential part of life. If cells in the body exceed this narrow range you will not live. If somebody is out of homeostasis this means their body is not balanced like it should be. Doctors will look to see if you are out of homeostasis if you come to the doctors office sick. Things such as iron level and dehydration could be possible things a doctor would check for. Blood pressure is a measure of the pressure of circulating blood on the walls of blood vessels. Blood pressure adjusts with increased exercise, stress, etc. During exercise the heart pumps faster and some of the blood pumped by the heart travels to the lungs to get rid of carbon dioxide and pick up oxygen. When the blood pumps at a fast rate it gives less take for oxygen uptake so the oxygen in the blood supplies what the lungs cannot give. This is part of homeostasis. Mean arterial blood pressure (MAP) is the average pressure in a patient's arteries during one cardiac cycle. If the number drops below 70 that means the organs will begin to shut down and you will not survive.   Inanykindofmedicalemergencyitisessentialtomaintainavolumeofbloodthatwill keepyoualive.Toomuchbloodisbadandtoolittlebloodisbad.Withthisgraphyou willbeabletoknowhowmuchbloodapersonneedsintheirbodybasedontheir  weight.Incaseofanemergencyandyouknewhowmuchbloodapersonlostyou would be able to estimate how much blood they would need based on the graph.
