Cerebrospinal fluid, fluid within the eyes, joints, and body cavities, and fluid secretions of exocrine glands are all classified specifically as ______________ fluid.
A)intracellular
B)extracellular
C)transcellular
D)None of the above
2
What are the two major factors that regulate the movement of water and electrolytes from one fluid compartment to the next?
A)hydrostatic pressure and osmotic pressure
B)sodium concentration and osmotic pressure
C)hydrostatic pressure and potassium concentration
D)concentration of all electrolytes combined and water pressure
3
What trigger signals the brain to increase the output of ADH for water conservation?
A)thickened saliva signals the sympathetic nervous system
B)osmoreceptors in the hypothalamus detect the increase in osmotic pressure of body fluids and signal the posterior pituitary to release ADH
C)chemoreceptors in the renal tubule sense the increased viscosity of renal filtrate and signal the hypothalamus which, in turn, signals the posterior pituitary
D)the juxtaglomerular apparatus senses the greater osmotic pressure in the blood and triggers the release of ADH
4
How does alcohol function as a diuretic?
A)Alcohol dilutes the blood and thus enables increased urine output.
B)Alcohol receptors in the liver sense its presence and trigger a biochemical pathway that increases urine output to rid the body of alcohol.
C)Alcohol inhibits the release of ADH and thus urine output is increased.
D)Alcohol prevents the distal convoluted tubule from reabsorbing water from the filtrate.
5
A so-called "salt craving" is primarily the result of _________________.
A)a learned behavior
B)a genetic disease
C)dehydration
D)a severe electrolyte deficiency
6

A)calcium
B)sodium
C)phosphate
D)hemoglobin
13
How is it possible for the rate and depth of breathing to affect hydrogen ion concentrations in body fluids?
A)During increased air exchange, more oxygen is exchanged with body cells, binding hydrogen ions.
B)During increased air exchange, more carbon dioxide is given off, returning hydrogen ion concentrations to normal.
C)During increased respiration over the long term, more hemoglobin is produced, thus increasing the buffering of the blood
D)The rate and depth of breathing does not alter hydrogen ion concentration in body fluids.
14
Which of these is considered a secondary defense against changes in pH?
A)renal excretion of hydrogen ions
B)the bicarbonate buffer system
