Blood PressureQuestions 1-4 are about the following passage. Lub-dub!
Lub-dub! Lub-dub! This sound is made by the rapid contracting and
extending of the chamber doors on the inside of the heart. This
ventricular contracting injects roughly 70 milliliters of blood into a
vascular system with a given volume at differing pressure. Blood
pressure refers to the pressure in the arterial system and is
typically taken in the brachial artery of the arm, because the pressure
at different places along the circulatory route is different. Blood
pressure is simply the force that the blood exerts in all directions
within any given area and is the basis for the movement of blood from
the heart, through the body, and back to the heart. This pressure is
commonly expressed as a ratio of the systolic pressure over the
diastolic pressure. The systolic pressure or "high peak"
pressure takes place within the arterial system as ventricles contract
and force blood into the arteries. The diastolic pressure or "low peak"
pressure takes place within this arterial system just before the next
ventricular contraction. An increase in blood pressure can occur
if the arterial walls lose some of their elasticity with age or
disease.What is the main idea of the passage?
