What is likely to happen if artery of heart gets constricted due to the accumulation of plaque on its inner wall
Asked by kumarhemkunt | 18th Mar, 2021, 11:29: AM
Bernoulli’s principle helps in explaining blood flow in artery. The artery may get constricted due to the accumulation
of plaque on its inner walls. In order to drive the blood through this constriction , heart has to pump the blood with high pressure.
The speed of the flow of the blood in this region is raised which lowers the pressure inside and the artery may collapse
due to the external pressure. The heart exerts further pressure to open this artery and forces the blood through.
As the blood rushes through the opening, the internal pressure once again drops due to same reasons leading to a repeat
collapse. This may result in heart attack.

- What is open vascular system
- A: elevated levels of sodium Ion increase the heart rate and contact ility R: elevated sodium Ion level increase excitability of s a node
- A: The resting heart rate about 75 per minutes usually is lower than the autorhythmic rate of SA node (90 to 100 beats per minute) R: at resting condition the parasympathetic effects dominates
