Robert Wu AP Biology Physiology of the Circulatory System Lab 10 A and B Prelab Questions 1. What is the objective of Part 10A? The objective of Part 10A is to learn how to measure blood pressure 2. Pulse rate will be measured in Part 10B. List the four conditions under which the pulse rate will be measured. Standing, reclining, after baroreceptor reflex, during and immediately after exercise 3. Which side of the mammalian heart receives deoxygenated blood from body tissues and pumps it to the lungs? Right 4. To which side of the heart is oxygenated blood is pumped from the lungs so that the heart can pump the blood to body tissues? Left 5. What instrument is used to measure arterial blood pressure?
