- a Small arteries that lead into capillary beds; controls blood flow into capillary beds by vasodilation and vasoconstriction; Deliver blood to capillaries.
- b Blood flow caused by the pumping action of the heart, pressure results when flow is opposed by resistance.
- c Norepinephrine and Epinephrine increase blood pressure - cause vasoconstriction and increase cardiac output.
- d Pressure wave caused by the expansion and recoil of elastic arteries. Varies with health, body position, and activity.

5 True/False Questions
What is Blood Flow inversely proportional with? → Peripheral Resistance (R). - If R increases, blood flow decreases.
Tunica Media → Occurs when short term autoregulation cannot meet tissue nutrient requirements. Either the number of vessels to a region increases or existing vessels enlarge.
Elastic (Conducting) Arteries → Thick walled arteries near the heart. Act as pressure reservoirs - expand and recoil as blood is ejected from the heart.
Conduct blood from the heart into Muscular Arteries.
Atrial Natriuretic Peptide → ANP - Causes blood volume and pressure to decline (produced by atria of the heart0.
Veins → Pulse and blood pressure, along with respiratory rate and body temperature.
