A & P II Module 8 Quiz
1. Blood pressure will increase with the increased reabsorption of sodium ions?
2. Both hypokalemia and hyperkalemia can cause and lead to cardiac arrhythmias?
3. If the carbon dioxide levels increase within the body, blood pH levels increase?
4. Metabolic alkalosis can occur from a person vomiting excessively, which will result in a decrease of blood pH levels?
5. Edema is abnormal accumulation of fluid that occurs within the cells?
6. The extracellular fluid is about 2/3 of the overall body water content?
7. If a condition causes an increase amount of carbonic acid due to an increase of carbon dioxide, the overall blood pH will decrease?
8. Hypercalcemia will result in muscle spasm and tetany?
9. A rise in plasma osmolality (an increase in electrolytes) will lead to an increase thirst sensation and increase of secretion of antidiuretic hormone (ADH)
10. Hypernatremia can result from an increase of water intake?
11. The renal system has the greatest influence on the acid-base balance within the body, but takes the longest time to make changes?
12. Non-electrolyte solutes create positively or negatively charge ions in water?
13. If the body is hyperventilating, releasing more carbon dioxide from the body than being produced, H+ion concentration will decrease?
14. Solutes, especially electrolytes, can change the plasma osmolality that influences the movement of water?
15. Atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) hormone will cause an increase secretion of sodium ions of body resulting in a decrease of blood pressure.
