  • Vital signs
    • Blood Plasma Concentration
      • Fasting Level:3.5-7.5 mmol/dm3
      • When found in urine: 9.0 mmol/dm3
    • Ranges related to breathing
      • Breathing Rate: 15-18 breaths per minute
      • Tidal Volume: 0.4-0.5 dm3
      • Vital Capacity (male): 6.00dm3
      • Vital Capacity (female): 4.25dm3
      • Peak Flow: 400-600dm3
    • Blood pressure Values
      • Typical 18 year old adult: 120/80mmHg
      • Male, 20 years old: 125/80mmHg
      • Female, 20 years old: 123/80mmHg
      • Male, 40 years old: 135/85mmHg
      • Female, 40 years old: 133/85mmHg
    • Ranges for Body Temperature
      • Normal Range: 36.5-37.2 degrees Celsius
      • Death: below 25 degrees Celsius
      • Hypothermia: below 32 degrees Celsius
      • Fever: above 37.2 degrees Celsius
      • Hypothermia/heat exhaustion/ heat stroke: likely if above 38 degrees Celsius in the absence of infection
      • above 43 degrees Celsius: temperature likely to be fatal
    • Pulse rate: 60-80 beats per minute
