Our expert says:
Skydiving is interestingly regarded as a "stressor" in most medical articles!
1. Heart rate goes up ( to about 177 beats per minute in most cases)
2. Skydive elicited extreme anxiety, hyperarousal, and peritraumatic dissociation in a significant proportion of skydivers
3. Cortisol and beta endorphin levels rise
4. Parachute jumping enhances blood nerve growth factor levels and the distribution of nerve growth factor
receptors in lymphocytes
5. Adrenaline, Nor-adrenaline, prolactin, TSH, and growth hormone are released in physiologically significant amounts in association with the stress of parachute jumping
I could not find any articles on what happens to the blood pressure - but with the hormonal increases it probably rises.
