    C. pre-eclampsia
    D. pre-hypertension
    A.
    (this multiple choice question has been scrambled)

    A. afterload
    B. the morning after
    C. aftercare
    D. afterburn
    A.
    (this multiple choice question has been scrambled)
  5. calcium channel blockers are generally contraindicted in:

    A. heart failure
    B. angina
    C. stroke
    D. MI
    A.
    (this multiple choice question has been scrambled)

    D. orthostatic hypotension
    D.
    (this multiple choice question has been scrambled)
  7. vasodilators would dilate arteries, veins, etc and decrease ___, whereas diuretics that decrease the circulating fluid volume would decrease ____

    A. stroke volume; cardiac output
    B. preload; afterload
    C. stroke volume; ejection fraction
    D. afterload; preload

    D. cough and diarrhea
    C.
    (this multiple choice question has been scrambled)
  10. this drug is used to treat hypertension by preventing renin from converting angiotensinogen to angiotensin I, therefore it is known as a direct renin inhibitor
