  5. Tunica Media
  1. a Blood viscosity, and blood vessel length.
  2. b Smooth muscle and elastic fiber layer, regulated by sympathetic nervous system.
  3. c Exchange of gases, nutrients, wastes, hormones etc.
  4. d Specialized, flattened veins with extremely thin walls (e.g., coronary sinus of the heart dural sinuses of the brain).
  5. e Temporary low BP and dizziness when suddenly rising from a sitting or reclining position.

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. In all tissues except for cartilage, epithelia, cornea and lens of eye.
  2. In the Aorta.
  3. Vessels of the vessels - larger veseels contain this. Nourish the external tissues of the blood vessel wall.
  4. Blood flow caused by the pumping action of the heart, pressure results when flow is opposed by resistance.
  5. 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.

5 True/False questions

  1. AngiogenesisKidney release of renin generates angiotensis II, which causes vasoconstriction. Increase BP.


  2. Tunica Interna (Innermost)Smooth muscle and elastic fiber layer, regulated by sympathetic nervous system.


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


  4. factors that aid in venous returnRespiratory pump, muscular pump and vasconstriction of veins under sympathetic control.


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