Which of the
following response is not expected to a person whose GAS is activated and the
FIGHT OR FLIGHT response sets in?
A. The client will not urinate due to relaxation of the detrusor muscle B. The client will be restless and alert C. Clients BP will increase, there will be vasodilation D. There will be increase glycogenolysis, Pancrease will decrease insulin secretion
Clients bp will increase, there will be vasodilation-if vasodilation will occur, the bp will not increase but decrease. it is true that blood pressure increases during sns stimulation due to the fact that we need more blood to circulate during the fight or flight response because the oxygen demand has increased, but this is facilitated by vasoconstriction and not vasodilation. a,b and d are all correct. the liver will increase glycogenolysis or glycogen store utilization due to a heightened demand for energy. pancrease will decrease insulin secretion because almost every aspect of digestion that is controlled by parasympathetic nervous system is inhibited when the sns dominates.
