Which type of blood vessels contain valves and what is their function? Veins contain valves to prevent blood from flowing backward. This is necessary because the venous vessels are a low-pressure system and the blood must sometimes flow against gravity, particularly in the limbs.
Describe the forces that determine fluid movements across capillary walls. (1) Capillary hydrostatic pressure (equal to capillary blood pressure) tends to force fluid out of capillaries into the interstitial spaces. (2) Osmotic pressure, created by large nondiffusible particles in the blood, tends to draw water into the capillar
Define vasoconstriction and vasodilation. What is the mechanism of regulation? Vasoconstriction is a reduction in the lumen diameter of a blood vessel due to smooth muscle contraction. Vasodilation is a widening of the lumen due to smooth muscle relaxation. Both are regulated by vasomotor nerve fibers of the sympathetic division of
Consider the diameter of one 4-mm blood vessel and two 2-mm blood vessels. Would the two 2-mm vessels carry more, less, or the same amount of fluid, given that pressure is a constant? Why? The two 2-mm vessels would deliver considerably less fluid for two reasons: (1) the resistance in the smaller vessels is much greater and (2) the volume of the 4-mm vessel is greater than that of two 2-mm vessels. Draw a 4-inch circle; then put two 2-inch
Based on what we have learned about the regulation of blood flow to various organs, do you think it is wiser to rest or exercise after a heavy meal? Explain your answer. At rest, the abdominal organs receive approximately 24% of the total blood flow. With exercise, blood flow is shifted away from abdominal organs to skeletal muscles. It would therefore be wiser to rest after a heavy meal to allow optimum function of the o
The average thickness of an arteriole is six times that of the average venule, why? The arteriole wall still contains some smooth muscle and some elastic fibers which tend to be quite thick at times. This is needed due to the higher pressure in arterioles. The venule, on the other hand, is more like a giant capillary with only occasiona
