Clara doesn’t smoke much, maybe 5 cigarettes per week. So we saw this as an opportunity for a small experiment to check the influence of nicotine on the heart rate of a girl.
We connected a stethoscope to her chest. Inside the steth, we have a sensitive mic directly connected to the camera. So you can hear her heartbeat live.
Below you can see that we started at the fairly slow of about 78-80 BPM.
After 1-2 minutes the nicotine started to take effect. Quoting the article from livestrong, the heart rate increases about 10 to 20 BPM due to the effect of nicotine. The effect on Clara’s heart was even more notable.
