A good aerobic training program can result in Increase of max HR Lowering of max HR Increase in total blood volume Decrease in blood plasma volume21. An effect of a strenuous aerobic training program could be that the maximal lactic acid concentration during maximal exercise will increase decrease stay more or less constant can't be measured in the blood22.

The discharge rate of the SA node is Increased by parasympathetic stimulation Decreased by sympathetic stimulation Increased by acetylcholine Increased by epinephrine24. Hollow chambers on the right side of the heart perform which of the following functions?

During submaximal exercise both systolic and diastolic blood pressure are much higher than in rest only diastolic blood pressure is higher than in rest both systolic and diastolic blood are the same as in rest systolic blood pressure is higher than in rest27. The SA-node is named after its function in between Arteria and Venae the entrance of the sinus venosis in the right atrium its position in between atria and ventricle septum its position at the atrium near the sinus coronaries28. When lying down, a subject's respiratory rate is 12 breaths per minute, his anatomical dead space is 150 ml, and his minute ventilation is 7 L/min. Which of these is closest to his alveolar ventilation in liters per minute? 6.0 5.2 4.2 3.029. What does the term arteriosclerosis specifically refer to? development of atheromas in large arteries changes in coronary arteries degeneration with loss of elasticity and obstruction in small arteries ischemia and necrosis in the brain, kidneys, and heart30.

What is a normal tidal volume? 100 ml 500 ml 1000 ml 5500 ml32. How many semilunar valves does the heart have? 1 2 3 433. Which of the following statements is not true: The FEV1 is a measure of airway obstruction The FEV1 has been used as a measure for COPD severity The FEV1 is a measure for functional ability The FEV1 is a predictive determinant for complications after surgery34. A normal ECG does NOT contain a QRS complex information on the electrical activity of the heart an atrial depolarization wave information on the ejection fraction of the heart35. During low- to moderate-intensity exercise, heart rate is increased by: Activation of parasympathetic stimulation Inhibition of sympathetic stimulation Inhibition of parasympathetic stimulation All of the above36. Which changes in the blood will usually NOT be caused by exercise? an increased temperature an increased H+ concentration a decreased pCO2 a decreased pH37. In lung emphysema the total lung capacity (TLC) is: Increased Decreased Unchanged Irrelevant38. Jack has been training for a 100 km cycling race over the last couple of years and has been keeping track of his postworkout heart rate recovery. When was he probably most aerobically fit? last June, when his HR decreased from 180 to 150 beats/min after 1 min last April, when his HR decreased from 180 to 120 beats after 1 min yesterday, when his HR decreased from 180 to 160 beats/min after 1 min last January, when his HR decreased from 180 to 110 beats/min after 1 min39. In order to estimate the ventilation capacity you can multiply the __________ times 37.5: TLC FVC FEV1 RC40. Why does ventricular fibrillation result in cardiac arrest? Delayed conduction through the AV node blocks ventricular stimulation. Insufficient blood is supplied to the myocardium. The ventricles contract before the atria. Parasympathetic stimulation depresses the SA node.41. The huffing technique is preferable over normal coughing in emphysema patients because of: Less force is required which limits the required the strain on expiratory muscles Less force reduces the risk of airway damage by inter pulmonary vibrations Huffing techniques are more effective in lung clearance irrespective of the type of COPD Patients with Emphysema can’t cough42. During exercise a drop in blood oxygen saturation is observed. This indicates: A diffusion limitation A limitation in cardio circulation Peripheral muscle atrophy Hyperventilation attack43. Which type of blood vessel is primarily responsible for redirecting blood flow? Arteries Arterioles Capillaries Veins44. The rate-pressure product (RPP) is an index of myocardial metabolism vascular stiffness circulating catecholamines afterload45. As air enters the trachea and descends toward the lungs, gas exchange with the blood first begins in the_______. Bronchioles Alveolar ducts Alveolar sacs Respiratory bronchioles46. Calcium-channel blocking drugs are effective in: reducing the risk of blood clotting decreasing the attraction of cholesterol into lipid plaques reducing cardiac and smooth muscle contractions decreasing all types of cardiac arrhythmias47. The pacemaker of the heart normally is the Sinoatrial node Atrioventricular node Mitral valve Bundle of His48. How many lobes does the right lung consist of? 1 2 3 449.
