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?
a.    Sex
b.   Height
c.   Weight
d.   Age
e.   None of the above

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


11.   What factors are known to cause increases in blood pressure?

12.   Use your knowledge about the heart and the circulatory system to make a hypothesis about how the average blood pressure for a group of people would be affected by manipulating the age and gender of the group members.

13.   What sorts of problems might a person develop who has chronic hypertension?

14.   Analyze the result of your experiment. Explain any patterns you observed.

15.   Did the result of your experiment support your hypothesis? Why or why not? Based on your experiment, what conclusion can you draw about the relationship of age and gender to group blood pressure averages?

16.   During the course of your experiment, did you obtain any blood pressure readings that were outside of the normal range for the group being tested? What did you notice on the medical charts for these individuals that might explain their high readings?

17.   List risk factors associated with the hypertension. Based on your observation, which risk factor do you think is most closely associated with hypertension?

18.   What effect might obesity have on blood pressure? Does obesity alone cause a person to be at risk for high blood pressure? What other factors, in combination with obesity, might increase a person's risk for high blood pressure?
