The flashcards below were created by user harstanner on FreezingBlue Flashcards. What would you like to do?


  1. has to do with the splitting of arterioles
    Bifurcation
  2. are small blood vessels that allow deoxygenated blood to return from capillary beds to larger blood vessels (veins)
    Venules
  3. is the connection between two blood vessels
    Anastomosis
  4. is the peak of the ventricular contraction pushing blood out of ventricles
    Systolic Blood Pressure
  5. Each red blood cell will deliver oxygen to the ___________________ that will feed your cells that are surrounding it.
    Capillary Beds
  6. are very small and just before the capillaries
    Arterioles
  7. 75% of your _______________ are closed at any given time, because we don’t have enough blood. It is an efficiency thing
    Capillaries
  8. is the minimal pressure or the relaxation
    Diastolic
  9. are between arterioles and venules
    Metarterioles
  10. We bifurcated arteries coming down getting smaller, smaller and smaller till we get down to
    Arterial
  11. When the blood comes out of the heart it comes out of the
    Ascending Aorta
  12. The difference between systolic and the diastolic is referred to as the
    Pulse Pressure
  13. is created by using a blood pressure cuff when taking someone’s blood pressure
    Korofoff
  14. is abnormal heart sound that can be heard in carotid arteries (neck)
    Bruits
  15. We have the ______________________ between the arterial and the venule
    Metarteriole
  16. is the constant pressure when taking a blood pressure
    Diastolic
  17. is when blood is flowing thru the arteries. The center flows faster because the outside edge has viscosity (thickness)
    Laminar Flow
  18. is the mean arterial pressure
    Map Pressure
  19. drop blood off to the capillaries and pick up noxygenated
    blood to transport it back.
    Venules
  20. Vessels will ______________________.
    Anastomosize
  21. The blood coming out of the heart goes into the scending aorta and then aortic arch and into the
    Descending Aorta
  22. What blood pressure would give you a pulse pressure of 40?
    120/80
  23. run between metarteriole and venules
    Capillary Beds
  24. 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
    Turbulent Flow
  25. The medical field thinks 120/80 is
    Prehypertensive
  26. is calculated by taking the diastolic pressure and adding 1/3 pulse pressure
    Map Pressure
  27. In the process of returning the blood back to the heart to be reoxygenated the _______________ on the way up will not allow bifurcation
    Vessels
  28. will bifurcate as they move away from the heart getting out to the tissues
    Arteries
  29. is the turbulent pressure
    Systolic
  30. is abnormal in vessels it indicates there is atherosclerosis or plaguing going
    Turbulent Flow
  31. would be 140/90 or above
    Hypertension
  32. This would be beneficial because it shows the flexibility of your arteries
    Map Pressure
  33. The _________________ will cause dragging when it makes contact with the vessel wall
    Viscosity
  34. would be anything below 90/60
    Hypotension
  35. blood coming out of the heart goes into the ascending aorta and then __________________ and into the descending aorta
    Aortic Arch
  36. 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
    Abdominal Aorta
  37. would make someone have cold extremities and low energy
    Hypotension
  38. is a concern because we worry about flexibility, and aneurisms
    Hypertension
  39. If someone’s blood pressure is 125/80, what is the map pressure?
    95
  40. What is the pulse pressure of 120/80?
    40
  41. 124/86 would be considered
    Hypertension
  42. 118/78 would be considered
    Hypotension
