Guided Learning: Hemodynamics

Guided learning questions provide a systematic approach to learning by using a sequencing of the questions similar to how a topic would unfold in a traditional textbook. The student is encouraged to go not only to the initial link associated with each tutorial question, but also to use embedded hyperlinks to expand upon the physiological concepts associated with the question.

At the end of the guided learning questions, there is a link to an external website (testmoz.com) that has multiple choice and true/false questions that are associated with the topic. When the quiz results are given to the user after taking the quiz, links are provided back to specific cvphysiology.com pages to assist learning. Users need to register (free) on the testmoz.com site to access the quiz questions for the tutorial. No personal information is available to cvphysiology.com apart from the user provided login name and analysis of user performance on the quiz questions. This feedback is used to improve cvphysiology.com content and quiz questions.

Guided Learning

  1. Which vessel types are most important in determining vascular resistance?
  2. What is the relationship between pressure, flow and resistance?
  3. What factors determine resistance to blood flow?
  4. How do changes in vessel radius alter single vessel resistance?
  5. How does blood viscosity affect blood flow, and what factors determine viscosity?
  6. What is the difference between laminar and turbulent flow, and how does the latter alter the pressure-flow relationship?
  7. What are series and parallel vascular networks, and how do they influence vascular resistance?
  8. What is the relationship between flow, velocity and cross-sectional area?
  9. How do changes in flow velocity alter the kinetic and potential (pressure) energy of flow (Bernoulli principle)?
