The answer is 1
Rationales:
1. An increasing PAR indicates worsening cardiovascular function.
2. While this patient may be having more arrhythmias, that cannot be determined by PAR.
3. It is unlikely that the patient's heart rate is improving.
4. It is unlikely that the patient's blood pressure is improving.
