has to do with the splitting of arterioles
are small blood vessels that allow deoxygenated blood to return from capillary beds to larger blood vessels (veins)
is the connection between two blood vessels
is the peak of the ventricular contraction pushing blood out of ventricles
Systolic Blood Pressure
Each red blood cell will deliver oxygen to the ___________________ that will feed your cells that are surrounding it.
are very small and just before the capillaries
75% of your _______________ are closed at any given time, because we don’t have enough blood. It is an efficiency thing
is the minimal pressure or the relaxation
are between arterioles and venules
We bifurcated arteries coming down getting smaller, smaller and smaller till we get down to
When the blood comes out of the heart it comes out of the
The difference between systolic and the diastolic is referred to as the
is created by using a blood pressure cuff when taking someone’s blood pressure
is abnormal heart sound that can be heard in carotid arteries (neck)
We have the ______________________ between the arterial and the venule
is the constant pressure when taking a blood pressure
is when blood is flowing thru the arteries. The center flows faster because the outside edge has viscosity (thickness)
is the mean arterial pressure
drop blood off to the capillaries and pick up noxygenated
blood to transport it back.
Vessels will ______________________.
The blood coming out of the heart goes into the scending aorta and then aortic arch and into the
What blood pressure would give you a pulse pressure of 40?
run between metarteriole and venules
is the flow that occurs normally at the heart valve and creates the heart sounds. The sound comes from blood
spinning as it comes thru the heart valves
The medical field thinks 120/80 is
is calculated by taking the diastolic pressure and adding 1/3 pulse pressure
In the process of returning the blood back to the heart to be reoxygenated the _______________ on the way up will not allow bifurcation
will bifurcate as they move away from the heart getting out to the tissues
is the turbulent pressure
is abnormal in vessels it indicates there is atherosclerosis or plaguing going
would be 140/90 or above
This would be beneficial because it shows the flexibility of your arteries
The _________________ will cause dragging when it makes contact with the vessel wall
would be anything below 90/60
blood coming out of the heart goes into the ascending aorta and then __________________ and into the descending aorta
When the blood comes out of the descending aorta it goes into the _____________________ and has to do major bifurcation to get blood to both legs
would make someone have cold extremities and low energy
is a concern because we worry about flexibility, and aneurisms
If someone’s blood pressure is 125/80, what is the map pressure?
What is the pulse pressure of 120/80?
124/86 would be considered
118/78 would be considered
