StatementTrue or false
The two heart sounds are caused by the collison of closing valve leaflets
This is the definition of what? The number of binding sites of haemoglobin that are occupied by oxygen, out of a total of 4
Systole is normally longer than diastole
The third heart sound reflects the filling of a non-compliant ventricle
Narrowing of the aortic valve will cause turbulent flow across the valve during diastole
This is the definition of what? The pressure exerted by a gas if it alone occupied the space
The cricoid cartilage is just above the thyroid cartilage
The x-descent follows the a-wave
The c-wave is associated with tricuspid valve closure
The blood pressure in the left arm will normally be a little higher than in the right
There are four heart valves; the aortic opens when the other three close
A sphygmomanometer cuff that is too small will overestimate the blood pressure
What is the normal upper value for pH?
What is the normal value for maximal left ventricular pressure?
The R wave of the ECG follows atrial depolarisation
What is the normal lower value for pH?
The tricuspid valve closes before the pulmonary valve
A normal paO2 implies the absence of tissue hypoxia
The first heart sound is made up of mitral and aortic components
The P wave of the ECG corresponds to the first heart sound
Tricuspid stenosis will increase the a-wave pressure more than mitral regurgitation
The internal inguinal ring is lateral to the external inguinal ring
The posterior tibial artery is on the lateral side of the ankle
Peripheral cyanosis can occur with a normal oxygen saturation
A stethoscope has two chest pieces, a bell and a diaphragm. The bell is used to detect high frequency sounds
StatementTrue or false

Mitral valve closure occurs just before a palpable radial pulse
The mitral valve closes after the tricuspid valve
There are four groups of lymph nodes in the axilla
What is a normal value for arterial PaO2
What is the normal value for minimal left ventricular pressure?
The carotid artery is on the medial side to the internal jugular vein
If a patient becomes anaemic their oxygen saturation will fall
Decreasing ventilation will cause paCO2 to rise
A hole in the ventricular septum will cause blood to flow from right to left ventricle during systole
