5 Matching questions

  1. What is Hypothension?
  2. Tunica Media's function
  3. Diastolic Pressure
  4. Continuous Capillaries
  5. Muscular (Distributing) Arteries
  1. a lack pores and have a intercelluar clefts that allow only diffusion of water and small solutes.
  2. b When sound disappears is recoreded, usually 70 - 80 mm Hg.
  3. c Low blood pressure, systolic pressure below 100 mg Hg. Often associated with long life and lack of cardiovascular illness.
  4. d Vasoconstriction/vasodilation of vessels.
  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.

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. Vessels of the vessels - larger veseels contain this. Nourish the external tissues of the blood vessel wall.
  2. Peripheral Resistance (R). - If R increases, blood flow decreases.
  3. Causes BP to drop by inhibiting ADH.
  4. 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. Pressure wave caused by the expansion and recoil of elastic arteries. Varies with health, body position, and activity.

5 True/False questions

  1. Systemic Pressure in the right atriumFirst sound heart measuring blood pressure, normally 110 - 140 mm Hg.


  2. tunics that compose the Arteries and VeinsTunica Interna (innermost), Tunica Media (middle), Tunica Externa (outermost).


  3. What is Systolic Pressure?First sound heart measuring blood pressure, normally 110 - 140 mm Hg.


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


  5. the three important sources of vascular resistanceBlood viscosity, total blood vessel length, blood vessel diameter.
