1. Which parts of the body can you find the blood in the central circulation? heart, lung and preliminary blood vessels 2. Compare the amount of blood in the systemic arteries, veins and capillaries. Which ones have the greatest starts veins- arteries- capillaries 3. Law of Laplace-why is it that the small blood vessels collapse during circulatory shock?  Blood pressure drops to a point where it cannot overcome the increased tension in the vessel walls  resulting in a decrease in blood volume and vessel radius. Which segment of the arterial system is  there the greatest pulse pressure? The aorta 4. Define  pulse  pressure.  Difference  between  Systolic  and   diastolic  pressure  difference  between systolic and distolic pressure 5. Describe the effects of the rennin-angiotensin-aldosterone mechanism, the release of  ADH, and the renal-body fluid system on blood pressure.increase the blood pressure by  influencing the quantity and quality of urine produced.influencing the amount of water,  retained in the body.  increase blood pressure by influencein in quantity and quality of urine   produced.   influencing   the   tone   of   blood   vessles   and   amount   of   water   retained in the body. 6. Autoregulation of blood flow in the microcirculation primarily controlled by the metabolic of  the tissues. primiarly controlled by the metoabolic ___ of the tissues 7. Name the substances that the vessel endothelium produces and releases the inhibit  platlet   aggregation   and   cause   vasodilatation.   Prostaglandin-prostacyclin  nitric   oxide.  prosthlnntin prostacyclin 8. What causes vasodilation. local tissue build up of h+, k+ and nitric oxide. 9. Describe what is known as microcirculation.consists of capillaries and arterioles and  venules that link the capillaries to the larger blood vessels. consists of capillery, arterioles,  venules   that   link   the   capillery   to the larger blood vessels. 10. Describe the relationship between pressure and volume of blood in circulation. Distribution  of blood and circulation is such that pressure is lowest when parts of the system that has  the greatest volume.  distribution of blood and circulation is such that pressure is the  lowest in parts of the system and have the greatest volume 11. Describe the myocardium. 455- 457 p.455-457  composed of striated muscle designed for  job   of   pumping   blood.     characteristics of that does not describe: in arragment of muscle cells in a tight pattern to  increase resistance to depolarization. 12.
