increasing capillary permeability to proteins

a tumore that is encapsulated, slowly expanding mass made up of relatively normal cells might be a


When the osmotic pressure(solute concentration) of the blood is elevated above normal, water would shift from the:

interstiial compartment (ECF:extracellular fluid) into the blood

Filariasis can cause edema by:

blocking lymp vessels

the structure of a virus includes:

a protein coat and DNA or RNA

Leiomyoma is:

benigh: from smooth muscle tissue

charactristic of HIV+

antibodies in blood indicate presence of virus and possible transmission to others

Liver failure can cause edema by:

decreasing proteins out of the body

oral "thrus" infection












what happens to serum pH when many excess hydrogen ions accumulate in the blood?

serum pH decreases

what is essential in order tomaintain serum pH within normal range.

the normal ratio of carbonic acid to bicarbonate must be 1:20 (bicarbonate to carbonic acid 20:1)

what is the correct effect on the body of abnormally slow respirations (carbonic acid)?

increased carbonic acid

what would cause metabolic acidosis

prolonged diarrea

Where would the secretion of cortisole during a stress response be?

adrenal cortex

During the stress response, cortisole assists in:

increasing blood glucose levels

Norepinephrine and epinephrine

are secreted as part of the sympathetic nervouse sys response to stress

Each spinal nerve conducts impulses from a specific area of the skin called


occurs frequently of acute pain, but not chronic pain

stress response

protrhombin activator

in normal homeostatic balance, which substances should be dominant in their effects?

anti-clotting factors

for a person to have sickle cell anemia a person must

inherit one sickled hemogolobin gene from each parent

Sickle trait means that a person has

1 hbs gene and one normal hemoglobin gene

why does ventricular fibrillation result in cardiac arrest

insufficient blood is supplied to the myocardium

signs of right sided heart failure

edematous feet and legs with hepatomegaly
