- What is Hypothension?
- Tunica Media's function
- Diastolic Pressure
- Continuous Capillaries
- Muscular (Distributing) Arteries
- a lack pores and have a intercelluar clefts that allow only diffusion of water and small solutes.
- b When sound disappears is recoreded, usually 70 - 80 mm Hg.
- c Low blood pressure, systolic pressure below 100 mg Hg. Often associated with long life and lack of cardiovascular illness.
- d Vasoconstriction/vasodilation of vessels.
- 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.
5 Multiple choice questions
- Vessels of the vessels - larger veseels contain this. Nourish the external tissues of the blood vessel wall.
- Peripheral Resistance (R). - If R increases, blood flow decreases.
- Causes BP to drop by inhibiting ADH.
- High blood pressure, sustained elevated arterial pressure of 140/90 or higher. May be transient adaptations during fever, physical exertion, and emotional upset. Often persistent in obese people.
- Pressure wave caused by the expansion and recoil of elastic arteries. Varies with health, body position, and activity.
5 True/False questions
Systemic Pressure in the right atrium → First sound heart measuring blood pressure, normally 110 - 140 mm Hg.
tunics that compose the Arteries and Veins → Tunica Interna (innermost), Tunica Media (middle), Tunica Externa (outermost).
What is Systolic Pressure? → First sound heart measuring blood pressure, normally 110 - 140 mm Hg.
Atrial Natriuretic Peptide → ANP - Causes blood volume and pressure to decline (produced by atria of the heart0.
the three important sources of vascular resistance → Blood viscosity, total blood vessel length, blood vessel diameter.
