Anatomy & Physiology Question #43

Question

Which is a mechanism that controls long-term blood pressure regulation in the body?

Answers

  1. Adjustment of urinary output
    • Rationale:
  2. Nervous system baroreceptors
    • Rationale:
  3. Fight or flight response
    • Rationale:
  4. Capillary fluid shifts

Overview

Explanation

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.
