Accurate measurements of sodium intake confirm relationship with ...

"Sodium is notoriously hard to measure," said Nancy Cook, ScD, a biostatistician in the Department of Medicine at BWH. "Sodium is hidden -- you often don't know how much of it you're eating, which makes it hard to estimate how much a person has consumed from a dietary questionnaire. Sodium excretions are the best measure, but there are many ways of collecting those. In our work, we used multiple measures to get a more accurate picture."

Sodium intake can be measured using a spot test to determine how much salt has been excreted in a person's urine sample. However, sodium levels in urine can fluctuate throughout the day so an accurate measure of a person's sodium intake on a given day requires a full 24-hour sample. In addition, sodium consumption may change from day to day, meaning that the best way to get a full picture of sodium intake is to take samples on multiple days.

While previous studies have used spot samples and the Kawasaki formula, the team assessed sodium intake in multiple ways, including estimates based on that formula as well as ones based on the gold-standard method, which uses the average of multiple, non-consecutive urine samples. They assessed results for participants in the Trials of Hypertension Prevention, which included nearly 3,000 individuals with pre-hypertension.

What is the formula for Blood pressure?

Im taking an EMT course and cannot find the answer to this question? Choices are;
stroke volume
heart rate x stroke volume
cardiac output x peripheal vascular resistance
peripheal vascular resistance x heart rate

its cardiac output x peripheral vascular resistance the blood flow rate of heart vs the resistance of blood vessels

It's an odd way of phrasing the question, but the best answer (amongst these choices), in my opinion is:

cardiac output x peripheral vascular resistance

i think i learned this when i was learning CPR in class
i think it is heart rate x stroke volume

not really sure though
