  2. Fenestrated Capillaries
  3. Pulse
  4. Arterioles
  5. Muscular (Distributing) Arteries
  1. a Have many fenestrations (pores) that allow quick fluid and larger solute exchange.
  2. b Small arteries that lead into capillary beds; controls blood flow into capillary beds by vasodilation and vasoconstriction; Deliver blood to capillaries.
  3. c Pressure wave caused by the expansion and recoil of elastic arteries. Varies with health, body position, and activity.
  4. d Smooth muscle and elastic fiber layer, regulated by sympathetic nervous system.
  5. e Distal to elastic arteries, deliver blood to body organs, have thick tunica media with more smooth muscle, active in vasoconstruction to adjust the rate of blood flow; Distribute blood to Arterioles.

  3. Sinusoidal CapillariesExchange of gases, nutrients, wastes, hormones etc.


  4. VenulesFormed when capillary beds unite. Allow fluids and WBC's to pass from the bloodstream to tissues. Collect blood from capillaries and pass it on to veins.


  5. What is Resistance more important in influencing local blood flow?It is easily changed by altering blood vessel diameter.
