*fan and medal awarded EMERGENCY* What would most likely happen if capillaries had thick walls and large diameters? The blood cells flowing through them would form clots along their walls that block flow to tissue. The blood cells flowing through them would not be able to exchange gas with surrounding tissue. The blood cells would flow slowly through them, preventing them from carrying oxygen to tissue. The blood cells would flow quickly through them, allowing them to carry more oxygen to tissue.

    The blood cells flowing through them would not be able to exchange gas with surrounding tissue. The walls are too thick for the oxygen to permeate through..

    How would a dislodged piece of plaque in the cardiovascular system most likely affect an otherwise healthy person? The right pulmonary artery could become blocked, restricting blood flow to the right lung. A narrow region of the superior vena cava could become blocked, restricting blood flow to the heart. A smaller artery in a leg could become blocked, restricting blood flow to capillaries in the leg. A narrow vein in the brain could become blocked, restricting blood flow to capillaries in the brain.

    thick walls and large diameters it means that the capillaries have more space for blood to flow through them according to the large diameter part thick walls means the capillaries themselves are going to use up more oxygen and so less oxygen should arrive the tissues so think between B

    A nurse rubs alcohol like ethanol and isopropanol on a patient's skin before administering an injection. What could be a medical consequence of neglecting to clean the skin before puncturing it with the needle? The nurse could contract a disease from the patient's skin. The patient could develop an infection at the injection site. The patient could have an allergic reaction to the needle. The injection site may bleed more profusely than if it was cleaned.
