What will happen to the blood pressure if blood volume increases.

The blood pressure increases.

3

What receptors in the heart alerts the hypothalamus.

Baroreceptors.

4

If there is an increase in glomerular filtration rate, Then there is an increase in:

sodium and water output.

5

Blood volume the decreases followed by a decrease in B/P therefore baroreceptors provide information on the volume of blood, which is critical for maintaining __________________ .

cardiovascular homeostasis

6

This hormone reduces blood pressure and blood volume by inhibiting nearly all events that promote vasoconstriction and sodium and water retention.

Atrial Natriuretic factor

7

Atrial Natriuretic factor suppresses what hormones?

ADH and Aldosterone.

8

Atrial Natriuretic factor is released by ____________ that sense elevated B/P.

cells in the heart

9

One of the functions of Atrial Natriuretic factor:

It promotes excretion of sodium and water by the kidneys.

10

How does the Atrial Natriuretic factor promotes excretion of sodium and water by the kidneys?
