1

Where is pulsatile flow observed?

In arteries

2

What happens to the pressure and speed of blood as the heart beats?

They increase then decrease

3

What do we observe in compliant vessels? (2)

1. Added forward flow
2. Reversal of flow

4

Compliance

Expansion and contraction of non-rigid vessels during systole and diastole

5

Widkessel effect

Added forward flow

6

What happens to the vessel during systole?

It expands

7

What happens to the vessel during diastole?

It contracts
- resulting in extended flow without driving pressure from heart

8

What does pulsatile flow also have?

Flow reversal

9

What happens to pulsatile flow in the aorta during diastole?

Blood doesn’t flow back, because aortic valve closes

10

What happens to pulsatile flow in the distal circulation during diastole?

In some locations, when pressure decreases and vessel contracts
- there will be reversal of flow especially with no valves to prevent back flow

11

What happens to speed at the stenosis?

It goes up
- eg) garden hose

12

Why does speed go up at the stenosis?

To keep volumetric flow rate (Q) constant at all 3 regions
- before, at and after stenosis

13

Continuity rule

Trying to keep Q constant all the time in all locations
- need to compensate to keep it as even as possible

14

What is the formula for the continuity rule?

Q = V(average) x A
Q = volumetric flow rate (mL/s)
V = average velocity (cm/s)
A = cross sectional area (cm^2)

15

What is volumetric flow rate for a short segment?

Constant

16

If area decreases by 2x, what happens to the speed?

It increases by 2

17

What happens to the volumetric flow rate if area decreases by 2?

It stays the same
- complies with the continuity rule

18

What percentage does the vessels resistance begin to increase?

75%

19

What happens at 75%? (2)

1. Q starts going down
- eventually becoming 0 (occlusion)
2. V keeps going up
- compensates for decrease in A
- goes down near occlusion

20

What can velocity determine?

The severity of the disease

21

What is distance to stenosis?

Turbulence

22

What is the sound produced by stenosis?

Brute

23

What happens to the area if the radius goes down by 2x?

It goes down by 4
- pie r^2

24

What happens to the velocity if the radius goes down by 2x?

It goes up by 4

25

What do you use the formula Q=VxA?

In short segments
- usually stenosis

26

When do you use the formulas Q=deltaP pie d^4/128Ln?

In long strait tubes

27

What happens when speed goes up?

Pressure goes down
- indirectly proportional

28

Bernoulli effect

Decrease in pressure in regions of high flow speed
- at stenosis

29

What happens to pressure before stenosis?

Pressure goes up to push blood through stenosis

30

What happens to pressure at stenosis?

Pressure goes down to maintain energy
- pressure energy = flow energy
