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

5 True/False Questions

  1. What is Blood Flow inversely proportional with?Peripheral Resistance (R). - If R increases, blood flow decreases.


  2. Tunica MediaOccurs when short term autoregulation cannot meet tissue nutrient requirements. Either the number of vessels to a region increases or existing vessels enlarge.


  3. Elastic (Conducting) ArteriesThick 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.


  4. Atrial Natriuretic PeptideANP - Causes blood volume and pressure to decline (produced by atria of the heart0.


  5. VeinsPulse and blood pressure, along with respiratory rate and body temperature.
