Hemorrhage may not result in tachycardia as expected c. The elderly trauma pt is more likely to experience myocardial ischemia as a result of hemorrhage d. All of the above are true 8. When cells become hypoxic and the amount of carbon dioxide in them increases, reducing tissue pH, which of the following occurs to restore homeostasis? a. The sympathetic nervous systems constricts the capillary sphincters to prevent washout of the accumulated lactic acid b. Mast cells release histamine, resulting in dilation of capillary sphincters and an increase in tissue perfusion. c. The precapillary sphincters remain closed so that increased hydrostatic pressure forces lactic acid into the interstitial fluid, where it is buffered d. Mast cells release serotonin, resulting in dilation of the capillary sphincters and an increase in tissue perfusion. 9.
