Seeking a more comfortable homework help environment? Homework Clinic
I'm trying to see if anyone can help me with my Virtual lab - Blood Pressure. I would like to see if my multiple choice answers are correct.
1.    Hypertension means:
a.    High blood sugar levels
b.   High blood cholesterol levels
c.   High blood pressure levels
d.   None of the above

2.    A sphygmomanometer:
a.    Measures blood pressure
b.   When inflated cuts off blood flow to the brachial vein
c.   Should be used in conjunction with a stethoscope to obtain an accurate BP reading.
d.   A and C
e.   All of the above

3.    In measuring blood pressure:
a.    Diastolic pressure is measured as blood first reenters the artery
b.   Systolic pressure is measured when blood flow just returns to normal in the artery
c.   Blood pressure readings are noted as systolic over diastolic pressure
d.   All of the above

4.   Based on the laboratory activity, evidence shows that as a group:
a.    Males experience an increased systolic and diastolic pressure with age
b.   Males experience a decreased systolic and diastolic pressure with age
c.   Males experience an increased systolic and decreased diastolic pressure with age
d.   Males experience a decreased systolic and increased diastolic pressure with age
e.   Males have relatively constant blood pressure with age

5.    Based on the laboratory activity, evidence shows that as a group:
a.   Females experience a decreased systolic and diastolic pressure with age
b.   Females experience an increased systolic and diastolic pressure with age
c.   Females experience an increased systolic and decreased diastolic pressure with age
d.   Females experience a decreased systolic and increased diastolic pressure with age
e.   Females have relatively constant blood pressure with age

6.   On average for both sexes, normal blood pressure is typically defined as:
a.    140/60
b.   130/95
c.   120/80
d.   145/80

7.    Based on the results of this exercise, which of the following blood pressure readings are significantly above normal, indicating hypertension?
a.    122/78
b.   130/84
c.   129/81
d.   None of the above

8.    Which of the following information from the medical charts appears to play the least role in determining blood pressure?

9.   Which of the following appear to be lifestyle related risk factors for hypertension?
a.    Smoking
b.   Lack of exercise

d.    A and B
e.   All of the above

10.    A patient comes in to have their blood pressure taken.  They are a non-smoker, they exercise daily and consume a healthy diet low in sodium.  Based upon this information:
a.    Their blood pressure will be normal
b.   Their blood pressure will indicate hypertension
c.   You cannot estimate their reading due to the effect of genetics on blood pressure
