C. Pregnancy
D. Exercise
E. Anxiety

744. Blood flow

B. Is increased in the cerebral circulation by hyperventilation
C. Is greater in the epicardial arteries than the subendocardial arteries at the left ventricle in diastole

B. Vagal stimulation
C. Digoxin
D. Mobilisation of calcium from longitudinal tubule systems
E. None of the above

746. All of the following are true of venule walls except
A. Are slightly thinner than capillaries
B. Are thin and easily distended
C. Contain relatively little smooth muscle
D. Venoconstriction is caused by noradrenergic nerves and noradrenaline
E. All are correct

747. Which of the following is incorrect concerning biophysical characteristics of blood flow
A. Blood flow can be measured by the Poiseuille-Hagan formula even though blood is not a perfect fluid
B. Viscosity of blood is a function of the haematocrit
C. Blood flow is normally laminar
D. Velocity is proportional to flow (Q) divided by the area (A)
E. Critical closing pressure occurs when capillary pressure exceeds tissue pressure

748. Which of the following is incorrect
A. The law of Laplace explains the difference between intraliminal and transmural pressure
B. The smaller the radius of a blood vessel the lower the wall tension to balance distension pressure
C. Veins are referred to as capacitance vessels and arterioles as resistance vessels
D. The recoil effect in blood vessels is known as the Windkessel effect
