Maintenance of the normal pressure of blood within the vessels of the circulatory system is an essential feature of the cardiovascular system. Test your basic knowledge of hydrostatic blood pressure by taking this simple quiz.
(1)   Moving along the vasculature away from the heart, the largest pressure drop in the circulatory system occurs along the:
(2)   In an individual, the systolic blood pressure was 150 mm Hg, the diastolic blood pressure was 110 mm Hg, the heart rate was 100 beats per minute, end-diastolic volume of the left ventricle was 130 mL, and the end-systolic volume was 60 mL. Approximately, what is the mean arterial blood pressure in this person?
(3)   The arterial system is also referred to as a:
(4)   The venous system is also referred to as a:
(5)   In an individual, the systolic blood pressure was 120 mm Hg, the diastolic blood pressure was 80 mm Hg, the heart rate was 100 beats per minutes, end-diastolic volume of the left ventricle was 130 mL, and the end-systolic volume was 60 mL. What is the cardiac output in this person?
