  • 2. A) General characteristics of a circulatorysystemB) The development of blood systems in animalsC) Composition of bloodD) The circulatory systemE) Formation of tissue fluidF) The heartG) Functions of mammalian bloodH) Oxygen dissociation curves – The Bohr shift
  • 3. Function of a circulatory system:To provide rapid mass flow ofmaterials:BloodflowVeinfrom one partof the bodyto anotherover distances wherediffusion would be too slow
  • 4. On reaching their destination,materials must be able to:pass through the walls of the circulatorysystem into the organs or tissues
  • 5. Three distinct characteristics of everyblood system:1. a circulatory fluid, the blood2. a contractile pumpingdevise [either a modifiedblood vessel or a heart]3. tubes through which thefluid can circulate, theblood vessels
  • 6. Two distinct types of blood systems inanimals:Open circulation Closed circulationblood does not stayin the blood vesselsblood stays in theblood vessels
  • 7. most arthropodsOpen circulation in Closed circulation in echinoderms most cephalopodmolluscs (octopus) annelids vertebratessome molluscs
  • 8. Distribution of blood to the tissues is :poorly controlledOpen circulation Closed circulationwell controlled
  • 9. Blood and tissue fluid in:mixOpen circulationClosed circulationremain separate
  • 10. In an open circulation:1.The heart pumps bloodinto an aorta: branchesinto arteries.2. These arteries open intoa series of blood spacescollectively called thehaemocoel.3. Blood under low pressuremoves slowly betweenthe tissues, graduallypercolating back into theheart through open-endedveins.
  • 11. In a closed circulation blood is:pumped by theheart rapidlyaround thebody underhigh pressureand back to theheart
  • 12. Characteristics of:Open circulation Closed circulation1. Blood flow is slow and at a lowpressure due to the absence ofsmooth muscles.1. The speed of circulation is morerapid due to the presence ofmuscular and contractile bloodvessels.2. Direct exchange of materialsbetween the cells and the bloodbecause of the direct contactbetween them.2. The supply and removal ofmaterials to and from the tissues bythe blood is enhanced, therebyincreasing the efficiency ofcirculation.3. The respiratory pigment, whenpresent, is dissolved in the plasmaof the blood and there are no redcorpuscles3. The volume of blood flowingthrough a tissue or organ isregulated by the contraction andrelaxation of the muscles of theblood vessels.
  • 13. Advantages of a closed circulation:1. Blood can flow more rapidly through vesselsthan through intercellular spaces, so: rapid transport of nutrients and wastes toand from tissues more rapidly.A closed circulation:can support higher levelsof metabolic activity thanopen systems, especiallyin larger animals
  • 14. Insects do notdepend on theircirculation for O2 toreach the cells, buthave the trachealsystem.How can highly active insect species achievehigh levels of metabolic output with their opencirculatory system?
  • 15. Advantages of a closed circulation:2. By changing resistances in the blood vessels,blood can be directed to specific tissuese.g. duringexercise bloodis: diverted to:activemuscles away from:the gut
  • 16. Advantages of a closed circulation:3.can be keptwithin thevesselsCellular elementsLarge molecules thataid in the transport ofhormonesNutrients

  • 76. Three layers in an artery & a vein1. Tunica intima[endothelium] an inner lining ofsquamous epithelium2. Tunica media a middle layer ofsmooth muscle +elastic fibres3. Tunica externa an external layerconsisting mainlyof inelasticcollagen fibres)
  • 77. Compare anatomy of:
  • 78. ArteryVeinNote the muchthinner walls inveins.Artery and Vein
  • 79. Two reasons for walls of arteries being thickand the middle layer being mainlycomposed of elastic fibres.1. To dilate but not rupture when the heartforces blood into them at high pressure
  • 80. 2. Between beats the arteries undergo elasticrecoil and contract, tending to smooth out theflow of blood along their length
  • 81. Muscles in blood vessels regulatethe distribution of blood to an organ:Normal arterioleVasoconstrictionResistance = Decreased flowResistance =VasodilationCaused by:CO2ColdCO2HeatIncreased flow
  • 82. Veinsact as blood reservoirsstore: 65% - 70% of the body’s totalblood volume
  • 83. Veins containone-wayvalvesVaricose Veins:Damaged valvesin veins
  • 84. When body musclescontract, they exertpressure andsqueeze the veinsflat, helping the bloodto return to the heart.How does blood return to the heart?
  • 85. Capillaries are very small - about thediameter of a red blood cell capillary walls are: a single layer of very thinendothelial cells, attachedat their edges and surrounded by abasement membraneEndothelial cells
  • 86. Question: Section C [MAY, 2010]Use your knowledge of biology to describe theselective advantage of the followingadaptations.The diameters of red blood cells and the bloodcapillaries in which they flow are approximatelythe same. (5 marks)Basement membrane
  • 87. Blood moves slowly in capillaries as thediameter of RBC is approximately thesame as that of capillaries. This givestime for:oxygen to be released from RBC and todiffuse into the tissue fluid.another function of RBC is to carrycarbon dioxide away from tissues in theform of carbamino-haemoglobin. Ampletime is available for carbon dioxide toenter the RBC.
  • 88. Flow of blood into capillaries canbe controlled by:sphincterspresent in manyarterioles at thepoint where theyenter thecapillaries
  • 89. Sphincters are circular musclefibres:When contracted:prevent blood flow into the capillary network
  • 90. Pressure is reduced in smaller vesselsbecause:Arterioles are highly branched.Capillaries contribute an enormoussurface area.
  • 91. Fig. 16 Blood pressure throughoutthe human circulatory system.
  • 92. Blood flows slowly through capillaries. Why?Due to a very large cross-sectional area[velocity is inversely proportional to cross-sectional area

  • 118. This question is concerned with thelymphatic system.a. What is lymph? (2)Lymph, a colorless to yellowish fluidwhose composition is similar to thatof blood except that it does notcontain red blood cells or platelets,and contains considerably lessprotein.Question: [SEP, 2009]
  • 119. b. What are the main functions of thelymphatic system? (2)- collects fats from the ileum vialacteals- plays a role in immunity. Fluid isfiltered in lymph nodes whichcontain lymphocytes that killmicrobes- drains tissue fluid and returns it tothe bloodstream.
  • 120. c. Briefly describe how fluid enters andleaves the lymphatic system. (3)Tissue fluid enters thelymphatic systemlocated at the venousend of a capillary.Lymph is drained intothe subclavian vein bythe right or thoraciclymph ducts.
  • 121. d. Compare the composition of lymph with that ofblood plasma in the following two situations:i) Lymph that has just left a lymph node; (1)Lymph is richer in lymphocytes than plasma as itleaves the lymph nodes.ii) Lymph formed in the vicinity of the small intestine.Is rich in fats as lacteals absorb triglycerides. (1)e. How is lymph propelled through the lymphaticsystem? (2)By contractions of skeletal muscles. Valvesinside the lymphatic vessels prevent backflow.
