What are the two long-term mechanisms of blood pressure regulation? direct and indirect renal mechanisms
The direct renal mechanism function is what? counteracts an increase in blood pressure by altering blood volume, which increases the rate of kidney filtration.
The indirect renal mechanism funtion is what? is the renin-angiotensin mechanism, which counteracts a decline in arterial blood pressure by causing systemic vasoconstriction.
How do you monitor circulatory efficiency? by measuring pulse and blood pressure; these values together with respiratory rate and body temperature are called vital signs.
How is a pulse generated? by the alternating stretch and recoil of elastic arteries during each cardiac cycle.
What is tissue perfusion? The delivery of oxygen and nutrients to, and removal of wastes from, tissue cells; gas exchange in the lungs; absorption of nutrients from the digestive tract; and urine formation in the kidneys.
Blood velocity is fastest where? The aorta
What is autoregulation? Like a (water pump station)the automatic adjustment of blood flow to each tissue in proportion to its needs,(like houses) and is controlled intrinsically by modifying the diameter of local arterioles.
Name the 3 local autoregulation methods. Metabolic, Myogenic, and Long term aoutoregulation
Metabolic controls of autoregulation are most strongly stimulated by what? a shortage of oxygen at the tissues.
Myogenic control involves what? the localized response of vascular smooth muscle to passive stretch.
Long-term autoregulation develops over weeks or months, and involves what? an increase in the size of existing blood vessels and an increase in the number of vessels in a specific area, a process called angiogenesis.
Muscular autoregulation occurs almost entirely in response to what? decreased oxygen concentrations.
Cerebral blood flow is tightly regulated to meet what needs? neuronal needs, since neurons cannot tolerate periods of ischemia, and increased blood carbon dioxide causes marked vasodilation.
In the skin, local autoregulatory events control what? oxygen and nutrient delivery to the cells
Local autoregulatory using neural mechanisms control what? the body temperature regulation function
Autoregulatory controls of blood flow to the lungs are the opposite of what happens in most tissues:Explain. low pulmonary oxygen causes vasoconstriction, while higher oxygen causes vasodilation.
Movement of blood through the coronary circulation of the heart is influenced by what? aortic pressure and the pumping of the ventricles.
What is vasomotion? , the slow, intermittent flow of blood through the capillaries, reflects the action of the precapillary sphincters in response to local autoregulatory controls.
Capillary exchange of nutrients, gases, and metabolic wastes occurs where? between the blood and interstitial space through diffusion.
What is hydrostatic pressure? (HP) is the force of a fluid against a membrane.
What is Colloid osmotic pressure (OP) the force opposing hydrostatic pressure, is created by the presence of large, nondiffusible molecules that are prevented from moving through the capillary membrane.
What is circulatory shock? is any condition in which blood volume is inadequate and cannot circulate normally, resulting in blood flow that cannot meet the needs of a tissue.
What is Hypovolemic shock? results from a large-scale loss of blood, and may be characterized by an elevated heart rate and intense vasoconstriction.
What is Vascular shock is characterized by a normal blood volume, but extreme vasodilation, often related to a loss of vasomotor tone, resulting in poor circulation and a rapid drop in blood pressure.
What is Transient vascular shock? due to prolonged exposure to heat, such as while sunbathing, resulting in vasodilation of cutaneous blood vessels.
What is Cardiogenic shock? occurs when the heart is too inefficient to sustain normal blood flow, and is usually related to myocardial damage, such as repeated myocardial infarcts.
