# Calculate the pulse pressure for each example list a blood pressure

Calculate the pulse pressure for each example listed.

A. a person with a blood pressure of 120/80 mm Hg

B. a person with a blood pressure of 130/95 mm Hg

121) Calculate the mean arterial pressure (MAP) for each example listed.

A. a person with a blood pressure of 120/80 mm Hg

B. a person with a blood pressure of 130/95 mm Hg

122) Arthur&#39;s peripheral resistance has increased by 10%. To prevent his mean arterial pressure from changing, what factor must change to compensate, and by how much?

123) Using the appropriate formula, what effect does changing the following vessel diameters have on blood flow?

A. diameter = 8 mm, decreasing to 6 mm

B. diameter = 8 mm, increasing to 12 mm

C. diameter = 10 mm, decreasing to 5 mm

D. diameter = 10 mm, increasing to 20 mm

124) Place these organs in order of descending percentage of blood flow received at rest: bones and other connective, brain, digestive organs and liver, heart, kidneys, lungs, skeletal muscle, skin.

125) Colloid osmotic pressure in plasma is fairly constant in a healthy person. How would protein starvation affect this pressure? How may a very high-protein diet affect this pressure? Suppose a person is suffering from an imbalance that causes an increase in colloid osmotic pressure from the typical

25 mm Hg to 30 mm Hg. Calculate the effect on net fluid flow across the capillary. What negative health consequences could result?
