Atelectasis can occur when: o The intrapleural pressure equalizes with atmospheric pressure 10. Air moves into the lungs because: o The pulmonary pressure (P pul) is less than the atmospheric pressure (P atm) 11. What causes greatest influence on resistance? o Bronchiole diameter Cardiac Output 1. Cardiac output is a function of ____ and ____ a. Heart Rate and Stroke Volume 2. What is the volume of blood pumped by each ventricle in one minute called? a. Cardiac output (CO= HR x SV) 3. What is a normal heart rate? a. 75 bpm 4. What regulates HR? a. Autonomic nervous system i. regulated by SA node, 1. increased by sympathetic: norepinephrine and epinephrine *ex: exercise, fright, anxiety* 2. slowed by parasympathetic: acetylcholine 5. What is stroke volume? a. how much blood pumped from the heart at end of first beat 6. What 3 factors control/regulate SV? a. Preload, contractility, afterload 7. Which is considered the most significant factor affecting SV? a. Preload 8. Define each of these factors. a. Preload: the amount of stretch of cardiac muscle cells (filling) before they contract (directly affected by End Diastolic Volume) b. Contractility: the “innate” contractile strength of cardiac muscle cells c. Afterload: the pressure that must be overcome for ventricles to eject blood i. Like opening a door when someone pushing back 9. Which of these factors represents an optimal zone in the length-tension relationship between actin and myosin? a. Preload 10. What is the major factor that increases the heart’s force of contraction? a. Calcium concentration in cardiac myocyte cytoplasm 11. What are positive inotropic agents? Give examples a. chemicals or hormones that increase contractility i. Ca 2+ ii. thyroxine iii. sympathetic stimulation 1. direct innervation from cardio acceleratory center (↑NE) 2. indirectly by blood born epinephrine 12. How do negative inotropic agents affect contractility? Give examples a. Decrease it i. acidosis (excessive extracellular H+ disrupts the pacemaker potentials); COPD or renal insufficiency can cause blood to be more acidic than I needs to be ii. increased serum K+ (hyperkalemia); renal insufficiency iii. calcium-channel blockers 13. Hypertension decreases afterload (T/F) a. False b. Hypertension increases afterload because it causes the ventricles to open later and close sooner due to the pressure pushing back. This causes less blood to get out of the ventricle 14. Hypertension results in ____ ESV (how much blood when finished contracting) and ___SV a. Increased, reduced 15. What is isovolumetric contraction? a. time when ventricle starts to contract but valve not open yet (how much contraction needed is determined by EDV) 16.

What do the top and bottom numbers of a given blood pressure stand for? a. Top: systolic b. Bottom: diastolic 20. According to Frank-Starling, stroke volume is most closely related to… a. End diastolic volume 21. What does it mean when we say that systolic pressure is a cardiac function and diastolic pressure is a vascular function? a. Systolic-pressure blood puts on vessel b. Diastolic- pressure the vessel puts on blood 22. For reference: (sorry it is a little blurry) Physiology of Circulation 23. What is the volume of blood flowing through a vessel called? a. Blood flow b. Blood flow is proportional to pressure gradient and inversely proportional to resistance 24. What is blood pressure? a. the force that blood exerts on the vessel wall of the vessel that it’s in (this pressure gradient is what causes blood to flow) 25. Where is the blood pressure greatest? a. Aorta 26. Blood pressure gets ___ the farther it gets from the aorta a. Lower 27. The heart pushes the blood away from it to circulate it to the rest of the body (T/F) a. False, the blood flows as a result of going to places of lower pressure. 28. What is the opposition to flow/function of the friction between blood and vessel walls? a. Resistance 29. What does MAP stand for? a. Mean Arterial Pressure 30. Arterial BP is a function of the force with which the heart ejects blood and the elastic recoil of the elastic arteries near the heart 31. Pulse Pressure = systolic pressure-diastolic pressure 32. Since BP fluctuates with each heartbeat, MAP is the average force that drives blood flow a. MAP = ⅓(PP) + DP b. MAP = ⅓(SP - DP) + DP c. ((120-80)/3) + 80 = 93.3 mm Hg d. Notice how low the MAP becomes in veins…this decrease in pressure is the reason the blood goes towards veins 33. What is venous return? a. Blood coming back into the right atrium of the heart 34. What things help the blood get back to the heart? a. Respiratory “pump” i. decreased intrathoracic pressure during inspiration ii. Taking deep breath increases slightly the overall cardiac output b. Muscular “pump” i. skeletal muscles around veins ii. venous valves ensure one-way flow iii. When muscles contract squeezes veins and because of the valves in the veins, the blood gets pushed up to the heart (makes you feel good when you exercise) c. Smooth muscle in tunica media (provides ANS control) Circulatory Shock 35. What is circulatory shock? a. Any condition in which cardiac output is inadequate to meet the tissue demands of the body 36. List the signs of circulatory shock. a. low BP (hypotension) b. rapid HR (tachycardia) c. poor “end-organ” perfusion(blood flow through the organ) (confusion, LOC, low urine output) 37. What are the causes of circulatory shock? a. low/poor venous return: CO is low because not enough blood is returning to heart (low preload) (due to traumatic injury/loss pf blood) b. Pressure in vessels is inadequate to force blood into the capillaries (perfusion) c. cardiogenic: CO is low due to myocardial infarction (heart attack) i. hypovolemic (loss of volume) ii. vascular (normal volume) (lost no blood, when blood vessels vasodilate) 1. neurogenic iii. anaphylactic (result of allergy, drop in BP because vessels vasodilate) iv. septic (infection of the blood-usually bacterial) 1. strep and staff both cause vasodilation if get in blood Vessels and Vessel Walls 38. What are blood vessels? a. System of tubes for fluid delivery that begins and ends with the heart 39. What is the deepest vessel wall? a. Tunica intima 40. What is the Tunics Intima made up of? a. Endothelium b. Basement membrane c. In capillaries these are the only two layers d. in arteries only, there’s an elastic layer between the basement membrane and the next layer (the internal elastic lamina) e. in veins only, there are valves that extend from the endothelium Arteries and Arterioles 41. Describe elastic arteries, muscular arteries and arterioles. a. Elastic (conducting) arteries i. closest to heart ii. largest lumen, least resistance (first contribution to afterload) iii. pressure reservoirs (elastic recoil) iv. longer we live lose more elasticity b. Muscular (distributing) arteries i. thickest tunica media(smooth muscles that vasoconstrict or vasodilate): most influenced by ANS providing autonomic control of BP ii. carry blood into specific organs iii. acetylcholine causes vasodilation iv. epinephrine and norepinephrine cause vasoconstriction in these vessels c. Arterioles i. smallest arteries, no elastic laminae or tunica externa ii. greatest control over BP iii. feed into capillaries 42. Compare what happens to the elastic arteries during ventricular systole vs diastole. a. During ventricular systole, elastic arteries nearest the heart absorb the energy of the ejected blood i. stretch like rubber bands b. During ventricular diastole, their recoil helps to “conduct” (or carry away) the blood further along i. recoil keeps blood moving even during diastole 43. Capillaries are “exchange vessels” which move O2, CO2, waste and nutrients in/out of the blood(T/F) a. True 44. Where are fenestrated capillaries found? a. Where large amounts of materials ae rapidly filtered (kidneys/ small intestine) 45. What are the woven network of capillaries within tissues called? a. Capillary beds 46. What is the role of a precapillary sphincter? a. To regulate flow into “true” capillaries i. allows micromanagement of volume in capillary bed ii. controls routing of blood iii. made of smooth muscle, micromanage individual blood flow 47. Most of the time precapillary sphincters are in a dynamic state of bypass where some are open and some closed (T/F) a. true Respiratory System Anatomy (chapter 22) Functions 48. What are the functions of the respiratory system? Which is the primary function? a. Primary Function: i. Oxygenate blood for (and remove CO2 produced by) cellular respiration 1. This is one of the mechanisms for controlling blood pH (Co2 not so much O2) b. Secondary functions that support the primary: i. maintain an airway for ventilation ii. filter and clean incoming air iii. warm and moisten incoming air iv. recapture the heat and moisture of outgoing air 49.

Pressure varies inversely with volume i. ↑ V ↓ P ii. ↓ V ↑ P Mechanics of Breathing 76. Our breathing method requires a very specific atmospheric pressure to work properly, so when we suddenly go in high altitudes it is very hard to breathe. (T/F) a. False. Our breathing method adapts to change in atmospheric pressure, otherwise it would be very hard to breathe when you ride an airplane. 77. What does Ppul stand for and what is it? a. Intrapulmonary pressure b. A combination of pressure in all the alveoli in the lungs 78. Ppul is easy to measure (T/F) a. False, it is hard to measure 79. In order to breathe in the Ppul must be higher or lower than the Patm? a. Lower 80. In order to breathe out the Ppul must be higher or lower than the Patm? a. Higher 81. Ppul equalizes with what between inspiration (breathing in) and expiration (breathing out)? a. Patm (atmospheric pressure) 82. What does Pip stand for? a. Intrapleural pressure 83. Name two characteristics of Pip. a. Always negative (always less than Ppul and Patm) b. Fluctuates with breathing 84. What does Ptp stand for? a. Transpulmonary pressure 85. How do you find Ptp? a. It is not measurable, it is the difference between Ppul and Pip 86. Ptp should always be positive (T/F) a. True 87. What does it mean if Ptp is zero and what happens? a. This means that Ppul=Pip and this would cause the lungs to collapse 88. What is the term for a collapsed lung? a. Atelectasis 89. What causes Atelectasis? a. Traumatic injury that admits air and/or blood into pleural cavity i. result: P ip equalizes to P atm b. Plugged bronchioles (such as in COPD) i. loss of air pressure in bronchioles (need air pressure to keep them inflated, no cartilage rings) ii. leads to progressive collapse of alveoli c. most are just spontaneous 90. Inspiration and Expiration 91. Inspiration is an ____ process a. Active (requires constant muscle contraction of the diaphragm) 92. What inspiratory muscles contract to increase thoracic volume when resting? When being active? a. Diaphragm b. External intercostals (outer layer of muscles between ribs) 93. Is expiration an active or passive process? a. Both, it can be passive when relaxed (just sitting breathing) 94. Expiration is known as a “controlled collapse” of the lungs 95. What forces act on your lungs, trying to collapse them? a. Pro-collapse: elastic fibers & fluid lining alveolus b. Anti-collapse: negative Pip & surfactant 96. If relaxed expiration is passive then how does the intrapulmonary volume decrease when we breathe out? a. There is an elastic recoil from the fibers 97. When is expiration an active process? a. During forced expiration (coughing, sneezing, blowing out candles) 98. What muscles perform the active expiration? a. Internal intercostals (deeper layer on rib cage) and abdominal muscles Factors Influencing Ventilation 99. What are the three main factors influencing ventilation? i. Resistance, alveolar surface tension, compliance ii. *if there is an obstruction in the airway, they expiratory muscles will be needed to overcome resistance, even during relaxed expiration* 100. What is the greatest contributor to airway resistance? Why? i. Bronchioles because they are so small 101. What causes acute asthma attacks? i. reduction of bronchial diameter due to inflammatory response (histamine) ii. R is so high that flow is impaired or stopped regardless of ΔP 102. What effect does epinephrine have on the bronchioles? i. Dilates them 103. What is surface tension? i. attraction of liquid molecules for each other at gas-liquid interface 104. Surface tension resists expansion of surface area (T/F) i. True 105. The greater the surface tension, the greater the pressure necessary to inflate the . lungs 106. What role does surface tension have in the lungs? i. Pulls the alveoli in (this would cause the lung to collapse if it wasn’t for surfactant/ Type II alveolar cells) 107. Surfactant increases surface tension (T/F) i. False, it decrease it by equalizing surface tension in all alveoli, thus reducing the pressure necessary to inflate the lungs 108. What causes Infant Respiratory Distress Syndrome? i. sufficient surfactant not produced until around 30 – 32 weeks of fetal development 109. What is compliance? i. the measure of how easy it is to inflate something. 110. What does it mean when something has high compliance? i. It is easy to inflate 111.
