Here are a few simple Quiz questions that relate to Placental Functions from the practical.

1 The difference in oxygen tension between the umbilical artery and umbilical vein is about:

  100 pO2 (torr)
  55 pO2 (torr)
  45 pO2 (torr)
  10 pO2 (torr)
  none of the above are correct

2 Which of the following hormones produced by the placenta is important for initially preserving the pregnancy?

  Human chorionic gonadotrophin
  Human chorionic somatommotropin
  Human chorionic thyrotropin
  Human chorionic corticotropin

3 Which of the following hormones produced by the placenta is important for later preserving the pregnancy?

  progesterone
  Human chorionic somatommotropin
  Human chorionic gonadotrophin
  Human chorionic thyrotropin
  Follicle Stimulating Hormone
  Relaxin

4 Which of the following options are the roles of placental estrogens.

  stimulates growth of the maternal uterus myometrium
  antagonizes the maternal uterus myometrial-suppressing activity of other hormones
  stimulates maternal mammary gland ductal growth
  stimulates maternal mammary gland alveolar growth
  stimulates development of female fetal ovary

5 The placenta is said to have a "metabolic" role in the synthesis compounds except for:

  glycogen
  dehydroepiandrosterone-sulphate
  cholesterol
  fatty acids
