question

What is the function of a circulatory system? It is the site of blood cell production. It acts as a reservoir for the storage of blood. It brings a transport liquid into close contact with all cells in the body. It exchanges oxygen and carbon dioxide with the outside air.
answer

question

Why do the circulatory systems of land vertebrates have separate circuits to the lungs and to the rest of the body? Land vertebrates are bigger and require more tubing to reach all areas of the body. Blood is pumped to the lungs to be oxygenated before being pumped to the rest of the body. The circuits increase the amount of surface area available for the diffusion of gases and nutrients in the body. The large decrease in blood pressure as blood moves through the lungs may prevent efficient circulation through the rest of the body.
answer

The large decrease in blood pressure as blood moves through the lungs may prevent efficient circulation through the rest of the body.
question

True or false? The circulatory systems of land-dwelling vertebrates are composed of two pumping circuits: the systemic circulation, which is a lower-pressure circuit to the lung, and the pulmonary circulation, which is a higher-pressure circuit to the rest of the body. True False
answer

False
question

What is the function of the left ventricle? It pumps oxygenated blood around the body via the systemic circulation. It pumps deoxygenated blood to the lungs via the pulmonary circulation. It receives oxygenated blood from the lungs. It receives deoxygenated blood from the lungs.
answer

It pumps oxygenated blood around the body via the systemic circulation.
question

Which of the following statements about blood circulation in the body is true? During one cardiac cycle, the two ventricles contract first, and then the two atria contract. Deoxygenated blood flowing through the pulmonary veins is carried to the right atrium. As the right ventricle contracts, it sends oxygenated blood through the aorta to all tissues of the body. Valves prevent the backflow of blood into the atria and ventricles.
answer

Valves prevent the backflow of blood into the atria and ventricles.
question

Which event occurs first during diastole? The atria contract while blood flows into the relaxed ventricles. Blood flows into the relaxed atria while the ventricles contract. The atria and ventricles contract simultaneously. The atria and ventricles are relaxed, and blood flows into the atria.
answer

The atria and ventricles are relaxed, and blood flows into the atria.
question

Which event of the cardiac cycle occurs when systolic blood pressure is measured? The atria and ventricles contract simultaneously. The atria and ventricles are relaxed, and blood flows into the atria. The ventricles contract, carrying blood into the aorta, and blood flows into the relaxed atria. The atria contract while blood flows into the relaxed ventricles.
answer

The ventricles contract, carrying blood into the aorta, and blood flows into the relaxed atria.

question

Based on these two histograms, what conclusion can you draw? On average, individuals with an inactivating mutation in the PCSK9 gene have higher plasma LDL levels than wild-type individuals. On average, individuals with an inactivating mutation in the PCSK9 gene have lower plasma LDL levels than wild-type individuals. On average, individuals with increased PCSK9 enzyme activity have higher plasma LDL levels than wild-type individuals. The plasma LDL levels of individuals with an inactivating mutation in the PCSK9 gene are about the same as those of wild-type individuals.
answer

On average, individuals with an inactivating mutation in the PCSK9 gene have lower plasma LDL levels than wild-type individuals.
question

How would you predict the risk for cardiovascular disease to compare between the study group and the control group? It is impossible to tell from the data. The study group has a lower risk than the control group. The study group has a higher risk than the control group. The study group has the same risk as the control group.
answer

The study group has a lower risk than the control group.
question

What is the best explanation for the fact that the two histograms overlap as much as they do? Plasma LDL levels are hard to measure precisely, so the histograms show the spread around the true value. PCSK9 enzyme activity varies widely among individuals with an inactivating mutation in only one copy of the PCSK9 gene. Many factors in addition to PCSK9 enzyme activity affect plasma LDL levels. The sample size of the study group is much smaller than the sample size of the control group.
answer

Many factors in addition to PCSK9 enzyme activity affect plasma LDL levels.
question

Now consider two individuals with a plasma LDL level of 160 mg/dL, one from the study group and one from the control group. What do you predict regarding their relative risk for cardiovascular disease? The risk of the wild-type individual is lower because wild-type individuals had a lower average LDL level than individuals with an inactivating mutation in one copy of the PCSK9 gene. It is impossible to tell because the histograms overlap so much. Their risk is equal because their LDL levels are the same. The risk of the individual from the study group is lower because individuals with an inactivating mutation in one copy of the PCSK9 gene had a lower average LDL level than wild-type individuals.
answer

Their risk is equal because their LDL levels are the same.

question

Blood is pumped at high pressures in arteries from the heart to ensure that all parts of the body receive adequate blood flow. Capillary beds, however, would hemorrhage under direct arterial pressures. How does the design of the circulatory network contribute to reducing blood pressure to avoid this scenario? The total cross-sectional diameter of the arterial circulation increases with progression from artery to arteriole to capillary, leading to a reduced blood pressure. Fluid loss from the arteries is high enough that pressure drops off significantly by the time blood reaches the capillaries. Blood flow through the capillaries is essentially frictionless, and this reduces the amount of pressure on their walls. Capillary beds have the thickest walls of any blood vessel to resist these high pressures.
answer

The total cross-sectional diameter of the arterial circulation increases with progression from artery to arteriole to capillary, leading to a reduced blood pressure.
