  22. Psychological Changes Under Stresslimbic system, sympathetic nervous system, parasympathetic nervous system

          

  23. The Threat Awareness Spectrumis
    the part of the autonomic nervous system that is concerned especially with preparing the body to react to
    situations of stress or emergency. This system activates what is often called the fight or flight response.

          

  24. Vasodilation:Blood flows into the larger muscle groups providing oxygen to power flight and aid
    in escape.

          

  25. Vasoconstriction:Blood flow is restricted from the extremities and skin. The body pulls the blood away
    from the arms and legs into the torso. This keeps the blood near vital organs in case of emergency and
    also protects the arms and legs (our weapons) from losing blood in case of injury.

          

  26. Visual Distortion:Hearing may be diminished or amplified.

          

  27. Appraisalis the officer's evaluation and assignment of challenge or threat
    value to a stimulus.

    quickly and efficiently.

          

  29. Officers need to clearly articulate the specific basis for their decisions regardingthe use of force.

          

  30. Abilityrefers to the subject having the means to carry out his or her intent to cause death or great bodily harm.
    An officer must determine whether the subject has the necessary means to cause death or great bodily harm
    to the officer or others. A weapon is not required; a subject must only have the apparent ability to carry out
    his or her intention. If the subject seems physically able to cause death or great bodily harm, then he has the
    ability. For example, a 6'4", 250-lb. muscular man threatening to do bodily harm to an officer does not
    necessarily need a weapon. By virtue of his size and physical condition, he has the apparent ability.

          

  31. challenges or threats are separated by the person'scoping mechanisms.

          

  32. A subject postures whenan officer gives him a command. The subject expands his chest and begins to speak
    loudly, shouting, "You're not taking me!" He strikes his chest with his open hands while stepping back and
    forth, side to side as he yells the same words over and over.

          

  33. Simply stating "The suspect threatened
    me"
    officers who are in a state of
    high arousal later regret or do not recall the things they have said during this period of anxiousness. which reflects a series of statements brought on by a euphoric feeling of accomplishment the officer experiences after prevailing in the critical incident.

          

  34. The ability to manage stress is based upon a person'scoping mechanisms.

          

  35. An officer in Condition Yellow can quicklymove to Condition
    Orange or Condition Red based on the appraisal of a given situation. Condition White and Condition Black
    are not optimum states of readiness for officers on duty.

          

  36. The mind, like all body systems, strivescomposed of the
    sympathetic nervous system and the parasympathetic nervous system.

          

  37. parasympathetic nervous system,sometimes called the rest and digest system, is the part of the autonomic
    nervous system that is concerned with controlling the body during normal, routine situations.

  41. limbic systemrefers to the subject having the means to carry out his or her intent to cause death or great bodily harm.
    An officer must determine whether the subject has the necessary means to cause death or great bodily harm

    necessarily need a weapon. By virtue of his size and physical condition, he has the apparent ability.

          

  42. Complex motor skillsrefer to the muscle control required to make small, precise movements, such as unlocking

  43. Subjects might
    also become verbally and physically threatening, indicating they may resist by
    posturing.

          

  44. Fine motor skillsrefer to the muscle control required to make small, precise movements, such as unlocking
    handcuffs with a key.

          

  45. Auditory DistortionDue to physiological changes in the eye, vision may become distorted. Officers may
    as see darkness around the edges of their vision (tunnel vision). Officers may also lose the ability to see
    close objects with detail (farsightedness).

          

  46. Opportunityrefers to the subject having the means to carry out his or her intent to cause death or great bodily harm.
    An officer must determine whether the subject has the necessary means to cause death or great bodily harm
