5 Matching questions

  1. pulmonary disease is a common cause of heart failure in which side of the heart
  2. What could cause right sided heart failure that is not related to left sided heart failure
  3. Is this due to left side or right side heart failure
    fluid pools in pulmonary circulation
  4. Is this due to left side or right side heart failure
    Pressure and congestion in the vena cavae
  5. Is this due to left side or right side heart failure
    visceral veins are distended
  1. a COPD, cystic fibrosis or ARDS
  2. b right (In severe COPD causes pulmonary hypertension.
    The heart's right ventricle pumps blood through the pulmonary arteries into the lungs. High blood pressure in the pulmonary arteries puts excess strain on the right ventricle. Over time, the right ventricle may become stretched and dilated, and fail to pump blood effectively)
  3. c left (blood would back up in pulmonary veins as it returns oxygenated blood to heart)
  4. d right (veins would be returning blood to the right side of the heart)
  5. e right (vena cave blood enter the right side of the heart)

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. abnormal accumulation of fluid in the pleural space
  2. right ventricular failure
  3. heart failure
  4. left side
  5. right (blood backing up would cause the impairment, it would be venous blood returning to the right side of the heart)

5 True/False questions

  1. Is this due to left side or right side heart failure
    increased end-diastolic volume
    left side (diastlic ??)

          

  2. Place these events that lead to heart failure in order (ie. 21453)
    1.Blood pools in the left ventricle and atrium and backs up into the pulmonary veins and capillaries

    2. Pulmonary edema develops. Increased pulmonary vascular resistance places stress on the right ventricle.

    3. The left ventricle enlarges from increased workload and end-diastolic volume.

    4. Capillary pressure rises, pushing sodium and water into interstitial spaces.

    5. Fluid in extremities shifts into the systemic circulation, causing fluid to pool in the pulmonary circulation.

  3. Is this due to left side or right side heart failure
    greater pulmonary vascular resistance
    left (pulmonary vascular system would meet with more resistance)

          

  4. When the left side of the heart fails where does blood back upleft (blood backing up would in pulmonary veins would cause pulmonary edema.)

          

  5. Is this due to left side or right side heart failure
    engorgement of spleen and liver
    right (blood is not being pumped out so the right so the right ventricle would become enlarged)
