0

viscosity is due to blank of molecules

bonding

1

two ways to increase resistance in water

increase SA like flippers, increase speed of movement

2

water makes it blank to breathe

harder

3

blank increases in water which causes blank cardiac output which makes the heart work blank

venous return, increased, easier

4

tendency to remain afloat in liquid

buoyancy

5

specific gravity of water at 4 degrees C

1 g/cm3

6

anything with a specific gravity less than 1 will blank

float

7

anything with specific gravity above 1 will blank

sink

8

femur will blank

sink

9

vertebra will blank

float

10

pressure exerted by water on the immersed part

hydrostatic pressure

11

object immersed in fluid will have pressure exerted on all surfaces equally at same depth

pascals law

12

degree to which fluid resists flow

viscosity

13

water can also clean blank

wounds

14

water blank asthma and vital capacity

decreases

15

immersing hands in water causes blank which results in blank

vasoconstriction, wrinkling

16

indications for hydrotherapy

look at slid

17

form of infrared modality emitting electromagnetic radiation and is for superficial heating or cooling of tissue

contrast baths

18

contrast baths are used as a blank treatment which can stimulate the circulatory system to start the blank and may relieve pain by causing blank

vascular, healing process, desensitization

19

tub of water agitated by electric turbine which increases hydrostatic pressure further and a means of grading exercise

whirlpool

20

butterfly shaped whirlpool so a person can lay in it

hubbard tank
