A = true B = false 2. The aortic valve opens at point F of the dashed pressure curve 1 . 4. Point G indicates the time in the cycle when the atrio-ventricular valves slam shut. 5. The T-wave of the EKG starts during interval A . 6. The slow decrease seen in dashed pressure curve 1 is due to a delayed compliance change. 9. During interval E the pressure in the left atrium is greater than that in the pulmonary vein. The following five (5) questions refer to the figure below. A = true B = false 10. Curve segment A indicates the ventricular pressure change during the period of ventricular emptying.

C is associated with diastole . 12. The decrease in the ventricular pressure curve seen between points D and E is due to decreased calcium influx into the cardiac myocytes. 13. A shift from curve G to curve H would be expected if the compliance of the ventricles increased . 14. An increase in the area identified as EW would be expected if the aortic resistance decreased . The following question refers to the graph below. A = true B = false 15. If the solid curve A represents ‘ Frank-Starling’ data from the left ventricle, the dashed curve B could represent data from the right ventricle. 16. The pulse
