hepatic blood flow is ____% venous
Total hepatic blood flow=
total hepatic blood flow is what percentage of cardiac output?
the portal vein receives a large percentage of blood flow from what 2 organs? (with percentages)
- stomach- 20%

define hepatic acinus:
functional microvascular unit, cluster of parenchimal cells, formed about a VERTICAL axis.
the vertical axis of acinus consists of: (thbl)
- terminal portal venule
- hepatic arteriole
- bile duct
- lymph vessels and nerves
hepatic blood flow: ____flow, _____ resistance
the liver is a reservior for _______.
normal amount of blood in liver, _____ ml. Can expand up to ____L
what organ contains up to half of body lymph?
Sinusoids are permeable to _____ and ______. This can lead to _____ with high vascular pressure.
- fluids and proteins
what is the hepatic artery system? describe time scale.
with low venous flow, hepatic artery can compensate. can perfuse entire organ. this adjustment can occur within MINUTES!
Is the liver compliant?
liver compliance is:
2-3ml/mmHg per 100g liver
raising venous pressure by 1mmHg results in an increase of _____. normal is 210-250 mls, ________ is about 600 ml.
During sympathetic stimulation, 6% of blood volume is mobilized by the ______, 12% by the ______, and 3% by the intestine.
liver, spleen, intestine
Liver flow has 2 modes of control- Intrinsic
- -h.a. vasoconstriction
- -myogenic resp to smooth musc. stretch
- -local blood flow- arterial
- metabolic control
- -arterial hypoxemia
- -decrease in blood pH
Liver flow has 2 modes of control- Extrinsic
- Neural control
- -symp stim decreases bf
- -500ml can be expelled in seconds
- -epi (a-vasoconstriction, b-vasodilation)
