5 Matching Questions

  1. 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.
  2. What could cause right sided heart failure that is not related to left sided heart failure
  3. pulmonary disease is a common cause of heart failure in which side of the heart
  4. Is this due to left side or right side heart failure
    impaired liver function
  5. what is the most common cause of heart failure from the left side of the heart
  1. a 3 1 4 5 2
  2. b left ventricular dysfunction
  3. c COPD, cystic fibrosis or ARDS
  4. d right (blood backing up would cause the impairment, it would be venous blood returning to the right side of the heart)
  5. e 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)

5 Multiple Choice Questions

  1. left (pulmonary veins deliver blood to left atrium)
  2. left side (diastlic ??)
  3. right (vena cave blood enter the right side of the heart)
  4. right (blood would be returning from the spleen and liver and enter Right side)
  5. right (veins would be returning blood to the right side of the heart)

5 True/False Questions

  1. myocardial ischemia causes which side of the heart to failBNP (b-type natriuretic peptide)

          

  2. what is the most common cause of heart failure from the right side of the heartleft ventricular dysfunction

          

  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
    pulmonary edema
    right (blood backing up would cause the impairment, it would be venous blood returning to the right side of the heart)
