Transcript

  • 1. A Trip through the Circulatory System
  • 2. I’m DorothyLeviticus 17:11“For the life of a creature is in the blood….” That’s me being mentioned in the Bible
  • 3. Right Atrium• I entered the right atrium which is a small chamber on the top of the heart. There were hundreds of other red blood cells all bringing carbon dioxide with them.
  • 4. Right Ventricle• With a whoooosh we went into the right ventricle, a big chamber on the bottom of the heart. In a second the cardiac muscles squeezed us out into the pulmonary artery.
  • 5. Pulmonary Artery• The pulmonary artery is like a blue tube. It reminded me of those water slide chutes humans slide inside at water parks.
  • 6. Lungs• Quickly we were in the lungs. I dropped off my load of carbon dioxide to be breathed out of our body. All around were small air sacs where we picked up our loads of oxygen.
  • 7. God gave us breath• Genesis 2: 6-7• the LORD God formed the man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.
  • 8. Red cells with Oxygen• Suddenly everyone holding oxygen turned a bright red. I guess that happens when we carry oxygen.
  • 9. Left Atrium• Next we went to the left atrium, another small chamber surrounded by cardiac muscle.
  • 10. Left Ventricle• In no time we whooshed into the left ventricle and with a big squeeze we were in the aorta
  • 11. Aorta• The aorta is very crowded since all blood has to pass through there. It is a huge red tube. I felt like I was in a rollercoaster. The trip so far was bumpy with all the pumping going on.
  • 12. Arteries• I passed from larger arteries to smaller arteries with many other red blood cells. Soon there were only a few of us
  • 13. Right Foot• They told me I was to take my oxygen to the right foot so our body could kick a soccer ball.
  • 14. Right Foot• I travelled through a small vein to a larger vein and then an even larger vein. The trip wasn’t bumpy – just smooth sailing.
  • 15. Veins• We were joined by more and more red blood cells but we all looked kind of blue because we didn’t have oxygen. We then flowed into the inferior vena cava.
  • 16. Veins• That was my first trip through the circulatory system. Don’t have much time to write since I immediately started another journey – this time to the stomach!
