Exercise # 4 Human Cardiovascular system 1) Draw a basic schematic illustrating the parts of the cardiovascular system. Indicate the systemic circulation, the pulmonary circulation, and the types of vasculature. List some of the roles of the cardiovascular system. Explain the general concepts of blood flow, pressure development and resistance. 2) Describe the basic concepts of ascultation. What are systolic and diastolic blood pressures? What happens in the cardiovascular system during systole and diastole? What is systemic mean arterial pressure (MAP)? Draw a homeostatic loop illustrating the response to a) elevated MAP; and b) reduced MAP. Present your data for MAP. Does it differ between men and women? Why or why not? 3) Present your data for the responses to postural changes. Explain what happens when posture changes from a supine to upright position. How do we detect the changes in MAP? What are the compensatory responses? Does blood pool in our legs when we are walking upright? Why or why not?
