a vasopressor substance produced when renin is released by the kidneys is called:
physiologically INACTIVE for or angiotensin
ACTIVE form of angiotensin
reduces blood pressure, causes vasodilation is called:
angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) is also a angiotensin II blockers
angiotensin II stimulates sodium reabsorption, causes vasoconstriction and stimulates:
right heart failure has what type of edema:
left heart failure has what type of edema
typical signs and symptoms of CHF
- adventitious b/s ins-exp
- red exercise tolerance
- cool skin
typical signs and symptoms of Cor Pulmonale
- distended jugular viens
- abdominal distention
- peripheral edema
xray that shows a butterfly or batwing is which type of heart failure?
xray that shows cardiomegaly is which type of heart failure?
lab findings for cor pulmonale
- increased hematocrit
- increased hemoglobin
lab findings for CHF
elevated atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP)
hemodynamic values for CHF

- -wedge is always pictured on the left side of the heart
PAP pulm arterial pressure NORMAL
CVP central venous pressure NORMAL
hemodynamic values for Cor Pulmonale
pap and cvp ELEVATED
