Anatomy & Physiology Question #43
Which is a mechanism that controls long-term blood pressure regulation in the body?
- Adjustment of urinary output
- Nervous system baroreceptors
- Fight or flight response
- Capillary fluid shifts
The correct answer is B. The mechanism that controls long-term blood pressure regulation in the body is through information received by the cardiovascular system via the nervous system baroreceptors. The kidneys provide a hormonal mechanism for the regulation of blood pressure by managing the blood volume itself. Urine output, the fight or flight response, and capillary fluid shifts do not control long-term blood pressure regulation.
