Flashcards in Blood Pressure and Pulse Points Deck (12):
1

Surgerse of pressure in arteries.

Pulse Points

2

Force exerted by blood on the walls of blood vessels.

Blood Pressure

3

Pressure agains the arterial walls during ventricular contraction?

Systolic Pressure

4

Force exerted by the blood on the arterial walls during ventricular relaxation.

Diastolic pressure

5

"normal" Blood Pressure?

120 / 80 mmHg

6

"high" blood pressure?

140 / 90 and above.

7

Define Blood Pressure (BP) in mathmatical terms.

BP = CO x PR

8

Mathamatically define Cardiac Output (CO)

CO = Heart Rate (HR) x Stroke Volume (SV)

9

Define Periferal Resistance (PR)

(MAP - MVP) / CO

or

Vasoconstriction / Vasodialation

10

Define Stroke Volume (SV)

End Systolic Volume (ESV) - End Systolic Volume (ESV)

11

What is the signtific term for a blood pressure cuff? SPELL IT!

Sphygmomanometer

12

What are the "Sounds of Karotkoff?"

Turbulent sounds made by the blood passing through constricted arteries.
