  16. why are arterioles called resistance vessels?
    the walls are elastic and are made of smooth muscle which helps to resist flow and sustain pressure.
  17. name the types of muscle that control respiration indicate the most important
    diaphram*, intercostal interior and exterior, and abdominal.
  18. what is the effect of contraction of the diaphram on:
    thoracic volume
    abdominal volume
    thoracic pressure
    movement of air
    • t v: increase
    • a V: decrease
    • t p: decrease (less than atmospheric)
    • movement: inhale air moves through bronchi to alveoli
  19. defend or refute. a paralyzed diaphragm would have no effect on the welfare of an animal because other muscles and the weight of the viscera would allow respiration to continue.
    REFUTE. the animal would suffocate as it would not be able to inhale the action of the diaphragm is vital to inhalation
  20. what are consequences of an animla having no troponin?
    the calcium in the animal would be unable to bond to tropomyosin which would continue to cover the myosin bonding sites on the actin, muscle would not contract.
  21. defend or refute. if two animals have the same number of sarcomeres they will have similar strength.
    REFUTE. the strength of an animal is dependent on the abundance of actin and myosin not the number of sarcomeres.
  22. describe event necessary for a skeletal muscle to relax.
    • the nervous signal must stop

  23. with 500 units of myosin filament describe the actin myosin cycle.
    the 500 myosin would not be sycronized, and the HMM would bind to actin and bend inward to shorten muscle, it would then dissociate which uses atp, and bend outward and then repeat this cycle.

    • small lumen allows for intimacy with each eurethrocyte
    • thin wall allows for easy access in and out
  25. what is the relative probability that a erythrocyte leaves the left ventricle goes to the uterus and returns to the right atrium and is still oxygen rich? EXPLAIN.
    it is highly likely that this would happen as 10% of capillaries are patent average, so 90% are closed and not perfused, so the blood travels through a-v anastomoses then back to the heart
  26. name two to three features that distinguish between the types of capillaries.
    cellular interactions (junctions between endothelial cells), pores in the membrane, and presence or completeness of a basement membrane.
  27. name two features that regulate whether or not capillaries are patent or not. for each factor discuss the effect on patency of the capillary
    • metabolic activity/demand for nutrients: positive corralation

  29. name all forces that effect bulk flow and for each force dictate it filtration or re-absorption to indicate direction of flow
    • capillary blood pressure: filtration
    • interstitial pressure: filtration
    • interstitial colloid osmotic pressure: filtration
    • plasma colloid osmotic pressure: re-absorption
  30. at the distal end of capillaries why is there no filtration?
    blood pressure is lower, so re-absorption is greater than filtration
  31. what type of capillary is most likely to experience bulk flow? EXPLAIN.
    fenestrated capillaries, because they are the most permissive.
  32. a toxin loosens the junction between cells that line capillaries. explain the consequences to bulk flow
    there is in an increase in filtration because the capillaries are more permissive

    chordae tendonae attached to free border of valves
  46. name and describe events during the two major phases of the cardiac cycle
    • systole: contraction and emptying
    • diastole: relax and fill
  47. for capillaries define bidirectional exchange.
    the bidirectional exchange is in capillary to tissue and from tissue to capillary, nutrients flow to tissue and waste products generally flow to capillary, exchange is not limited to elimination of waste.
  48. describe three structural features of a capillary plexus that allow for bidirectional exchange.
    • thin wall
    • small diameter lumen (cells pass through one at a time)
    • high density relative to cells

    endocrine tissue, gall bladder, exocrine tissues, renal medulla, intestine, synovial membranes
  52. defend or refute. percent of pre-capillary sphincters that are patent in the lungs is greater than in many other tissues, explain.
    DEFEND. the high concentration of CO2 in the pulmonary artery blood would keep the sphincter patent.
  53. real or not, describe three situations that will increase filtration at a capillary.
    • decrease plasma colloid pressure
    • interstitial fluid pressure is more negative
    • increase interstitial colloid osmotic pressure
    • increase blood pressure

    • decreased protein in blood
    • blocked lymph vessel
    • inflammation leading to capillary porosity
  55. defend or refute. compared to restrictive capillaries,  permissive capillaries experience less bulk flow.
    REFUTE. permissive capillaries like fenestrated are very permissive (have pores and openings) and would allow for more blood flow.
  56. in skeletal muscles what is the basic cellular unit? Explain.
    muscle fibers, any thing smaller like a myofibril are organelles.
  57. in skeletal muscle what is the most fundamental contractile unit? Explain.
    Sarcomere- the boundries are the z-line, sarcomere has multiple sets of actin and myosin 6:1 ratio and when the sarcomere contracts the z-line is pulled inward to contract the muscle.
  58. contrast phasic and tonic muscle
    • structural:
    •    phasic: one neuron per whole muscle-twitch
    •    tonic: multiple neurons per muscle- non-twitch

  62. what is reabsorption?
    movement from tissue back to blood
  63. what type of tissue is prominent in walls of trunk arteries, explain.
    fibroelastic- resists increase of volume and resists decreased flow to sustain pressure.
  64. defend or refute. veins are considered resistance vessels because smooth muscle can contract and constrict flow of blood. explain.
    REFUTE. veins are capacitance vessels because they can handle large volume, arterioles are resistance vessels.
  65. after calcium is available and binds to receptor in muscle, what is the initial response within a basic contractile unit of the muscle?

  74. what is the name of the muscle int he heart that actually pumps blood?
  75. defend of refute. intravascular valves are powered with proximal skeletal muscles. explain.
    REFUTE. there is no power involved in a valve, it is a passive process dictated by pressure and flow.
  76. After death and now loss of blood, an animal is frozen instantly. you evaluate the cardiovascular system and the distribution of blood in many tissues. name four types of nucleated cells that will be present within all components of the cardio vascular system. each type of cell must be present in all components of the cardiovascular system that you evaluate.
