5 Written questions

5 Matching questions

  1. myocardial ischemia causes which side of the heart to fail
  2. what is the most common cause of heart failure from the left side of the heart
  3. Is this due to left side or right side heart failure
    engorgement of spleen and liver
  4. when the heart cannot pump blood at the volume requried to meet the body's need it causes
  5. Is this due to left side or right side heart failure
    enlargement of right ventricle
  1. a left side
  2. b heart failure
  3. c right (blood would be returning from the spleen and liver and enter Right side)
  4. d left ventricular dysfunction
  5. e right (blood is not being pumped out so the right so the right ventricle would become enlarged)

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. left side (diastlic ??)
  2. COPD, cystic fibrosis or ARDS
  3. right (blood backing up would cause the impairment, it would be venous blood returning to the right side of the heart)
  4. left (pulmonary vascular system would meet with more resistance)
  5. abnormal accumulation of fluid in the pleural space

5 True/False questions

  1. Is this due to left side or right side heart failure
    Pressure and congestion in the vena cavae
    right (vena cave blood enter the right side of the heart)

          

  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.
    pulmonary veins

          

  3. Is this due to left side or right side heart failure
    fluid pools in pulmonary circulation
    left (pulmonary veins deliver blood to left atrium)

          

  4. What test could you use to determine heart failure?BNP (b-type natriuretic peptide)

          

  5. Is this due to left side or right side heart failure
    visceral veins are distended
    right (veins would be returning blood to the right side of the heart)
