 1 You measured pulse amplitude before inflating the cuff. Look at your data and compare the amplitude values when the student had both hands by their side and their left hand elevated. A) The pulse amplitude was larger when the left hand was elevated. B) The pulse amplitude did not change when the left hand was elevated. C) The pulse amplitude was smaller when the left hand was elevated. 2 If pulse amplitude indicates the amount of blood flowing through the finger, elevating the left hand: A) increased blood flow. B) did not change blood flow. C) decreased blood flow. 3 You measured pulse amplitude before inflating the cuff. Look at your data and compare the amplitude values when the student had both hands by their side and their right (non-recording) hand elevated. A) The pulse amplitude was larger when the right hand was elevated. B) The pulse amplitude did not change when the right hand was elevated. C) The pulse amplitude was smaller when the right hand was elevated. 4 If pulse amplitude indicates the amount of blood flowing through the finger, elevating the right hand: A) increased blood flow in the left hand. B) did not change blood flow in the left hand. C) decreased blood flow in the left hand. 5 The systolic blood pressure when the volunteer had both hands by their side was: A) about 20 mm Hg. B) about 56 mm Hg. C) about 76 mm Hg. D) about 116 mm Hg. 6 The systolic blood pressure when the volunteer had his left (recording) hand elevated was: A) about 20 mm Hg. B) about 56 mm Hg. C) about 76 mm Hg. D) about 116 mm Hg. 7 Imagine a fountain in a pond. If you measured the force pushing the water against gravity, the value for water pressure at the base of the fountain would be: A) greater than the pressure at the top of the fountain. B) the same as the pressure at the top of the fountain. C) less than the pressure at the top of the fountain. 8 If the pressure of a fluid declines as it flows against gravity, then raising the left hand above the head would: A) lower the blood pressure in arm and reduce blood flow to the hand. B) lower the blood pressure in arm and increase blood flow to the hand. C) not change blood pressure in arm and reduce blood flow to the hand. D) not change blood pressure in arm and increase blood flow to the hand. 9 When compared with the data obtained from a volunteer with both hands by his side, elevating his right (non-recording) hand: A) decreased the systolic pressure and decreased the pulse amplitude. B) decreased the systolic pressure and did not change pulse amplitude. C) did not change systolic pressure and decreased the pulse amplitude. D) did not change either the systolic pressure or the pulse amplitude. 10 If elevating the right (non-recording) hand above the head did not change the systolic pressure or the pulse amplitude. Therefore: A) raising a hand does not change systolic blood pressure in the other arm. B) raising a hand does not change blood flow in the other arm. C) changes in right arm position does not change blood flow or systolic pressure in the left arm. D) all of the above are true.
