Cardiovascular System- Blood Vessels (Ch. 21)

Complete the chart below- 2pts each

What stimulates its release? Organ that secretes it Its effects
Antidiuretic Hormone (Vasopressin)
Atrial Natriuretic Peptide

Complete this diagram of Capillary Filtration and Reabsorption

Long description: A capillary with the net filtration pressure at the arterial end (10 mm Hg), middle of the capillary (0 mm Hg), and venous end (-7 mm Hg). There is a red arrow point out of the capillary at the arterial end, a purple arrow point out and into the capillary at the middle portion of the capillary, and a blue arrow pointing into the capillary at the venous end of the capillary. Within the capillary, there is an arrow that points from right to left, it is red at the arterial end, purple in the middle portion, blue at the venous end.

1. Choose whether there is filtration or reabsorption at the A) arterial end and B) venous end of the capillary. (worth 5 points.)

a. _

b. _

2. Using the above diagram as a reference, define filtration and reabsorption. Include all the components influencing the flow and the pressures, and how they determine the actions at each end of the capillary. (10pts)

Lymphatic System Overview

Correctly fill in the following blanks using the terms provided below. Please keep your Answers HIGHLIGHTED for ease of grading. (Worth 2pts each)


· Helper T Cells

· Plasma cells which produce the specific antibodies for recognition of the humeral pathogen

· Adaptive

· Humeral Immunity

· Nonspecific White Blood Cells

· Cell Mediated Immunity

· Stop pathogens before it enters the body

· Cytoxic T Cells

· Complement Cascade

· Are released from virally infected cells to stimulate neighboring cells to produce antiviral proteins to prevent infection.

1. The immune system is divided into 2 parts: Innate (non-specific) and ________ (specificity and memory) Immunity.

2. There are 2 basic lines of define in innate immunity. The first line of defense consists of physical barriers that are used to ________.

a. Give 3 examples of physical barriers below (worth 2pts)

i. (Add your answer Here)

ii. (Add your answer Here)

iii. (Add your answer Here)

b. The 2nd line of defense uses nonspecific agents to protect the body from invading pathogens.

i. _______ result in the death of any invading pathogens

1. Give 3 types of these agents (Worth 2pts)

a. (Add your answer Here)

b. (Add your answer Here)

c. (Add your answer Here)

c. Chemical mediators give off chemical signals that alert the body of infection. The ________ consists of about 20 proteins that protect the body by destroying pathogens or enhancing other defenses. While Interferons _______.

3. Adaptive Immunity is the 3rd line of defense. In Adaptive Immunity, antigens are processed by an APC and taken to lymphatic tissue to be presented to specific lymphocytes.

a. B cell adaptive immunity is called _______. Here B cells are activated and proliferate to produce _______ and memory B Cells which will be available if this specific humeral pathogen returns in the future.

b. T cell adaptive immunity is called _______. There are 2 types of T cells. _________ attack specific viruses and pathogens inside a cell. This type of T cell is activated and proliferates. __________ aid in the activation of effector B cells and T cells.

Respiratory System (Chapter 23) 2pts each

Section of Pharynx Normally Carries?

(Food(liquids) and/or air)

Which tissues lines the structure? Why is this tissue type the best to line this structure?

Use the following data to calculate respiratory volumes Worth 5pts each

· Tidal Volume= 450ml

· Inspiratory Reserve Volume= 3000ml

· Expiratory Reserve Volume= 1100ml

· Total Lung Capacity= 5800 Ml

1. Is this person’s total lung capacity within the normal range? Yes or No? What is the normal TLC?

2. Give 2 reasons why someone’s Tidal volume would not be within the 500 mL normal range?

3. How is the functional residual capacity measured?

4. What are 2 differences between the inspiratory reserve volume and inspiratory capacity.

5. What is the difference between an obstructive vs a restrictive respiratory disorder/disease?
