### ______ is considered to be the "good cholesterol"

Explanation
High-Density Lipoprotein (HDL) is considered to be the "good cholesterol" because it helps remove low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol from the bloodstream and transport it to the liver for processing and elimination. HDL acts as a scavenger, preventing the buildup of excess cholesterol in the arteries and reducing the risk of heart disease. Higher levels of HDL are associated with a lower risk of cardiovascular problems, making it desirable to have high levels of HDL in the body.

### When performing an ECG, the P wave of the ECG complex represents the :__________

atrial depolarization
Explanation
The P wave of the ECG complex represents atrial depolarization. Depolarization refers to the electrical activation of the heart muscle cells, causing them to contract. The P wave specifically represents the depolarization of the atria, which are the upper chambers of the heart. This electrical signal starts in the sinoatrial (SA) node, spreads through the atria, and leads to the contraction of the atrial muscles, which helps in filling the ventricles with blood. Therefore, the P wave on an ECG is a reflection of the electrical activity in the atria during the cardiac cycle.
