Unformatted text preview: 1. Understand vascular compliance. 2. Understand how arterial pressure is determined. 3. Understand the flow of blood through veins. III. Sample Problems: 1. What effect would decreasing the compliance of arterioles have on pulsatile flow though them (assume resistance stays constant)? 2. How does the 'venous pump' function? file:///C|/WINWORD/COURSES/31107/Lec25-07.htm8/15/2007 10:24:10 AM...
