The flashcards below were created by user zf2010 on FreezingBlue Flashcards.

  1. Define microcirculation
    Arterioles, capillaries and venules
  2. Vasomotion
    • Precapillary smooth muscle rhythmic contractions
    • Causes discontinuous flow in capillary
  3. Factors of filtration
    • Capillary hydrostatic pressure (Pc) - pushing out of capillary
    • Interstitial hydrostatic pressure (Pif) - pushing into capillary
    • Plasma osmotic pressure - draw fluid into capillary
    • Interstitial osmotic pressure - draw fluid out of capillary
  4. Types of lymphatic pumping
    • Intrinsic pumping - smooth muscle of lymph vessels
    • External compression - muscles around lymph vessels (unidirectional result due to valves)
  5. Factors of edema
    • Increased capillary permeability
    • Decrease in plama osmotic pressure
    • Elevated capillary pressure
    • Lymphatic obstruction
