The "c" wave occurs after closure of the A-V valves during systole.

Parathyroid hormone also increases renal tubular reabsorption of calcium (particularly in the distal renal convoluted tubule), which also increases plasma calcium levels. 2) Vitamin D in LARGE amounts has a similar effect as parathyroid hormone-promoting bone breakdown. But when present in only small amount:;, it induces bone calcification, possible through its effect in increasing calcium uptake in the intestines and kidney. Phosphate enters the blood with calcium when vitamin D promotes calcium absorption in the intestine, bone breakdown, and renal tubular calcium reabsorption.
