Presentation #3 for Medical Terminology

  1. 1. The Cardiovascular System
  2. 2. Anatomy and Physiology of the Cardiovascular System <ul><li>Also Called the Circulatory System </li></ul><ul><li>Responsible for </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Delivering Nutrients and Oxygen to the Tissue Cells </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Removing Metabolic Wastes from Tissue Cells </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Brings Hormones to Target Cells </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Composed of </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Pulmonary Circulation </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Systemic Circulation </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Organs </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Heart </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Blood Vessels </li></ul></ul>
  3. 3. Two Parts of the Cardiovascular System <ul><li>Pulmonary Circulation </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Between Heart and Lungs </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Carries DeOxygenated Blood to Lungs to Get Oxygen </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Carries Oxygenated Blood to Heart </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Systemic Circulation </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Between Heart and Body Cells </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Carries Oxygenated Blood From Heart to Body Cells then Back to the Heart </li></ul></ul>
  4. 4. The Heart <ul><li>Pump of the Cardiovascular System </li></ul><ul><li>Has Three Layers: Epicardium; MyoCardium and EndoCardium </li></ul><ul><li>Has Four Chambers </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Two Superior Chambers: Left Atrium and Right Atrium </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Two Inferior Chambers: Left Ventricle and Right Ventricle </li></ul></ul>
  5. 5. Flow of Blood Thru the Heart <ul><li>Very Orderly </li></ul><ul><li>Direction Controlled by Four Valves of the Heart </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Valves Situated at Entrances and Exits to Ventricles </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Valves Allow Only Forward Direction of Blood </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Chambers Alternate Between Relaxing and Contraction States </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Relaxed Stated Called Diastole Allows Blood to Fill </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Contracting State Called Systole Pushes Blood Forward </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Conduction System of the Heart Regulated by Autonomic System </li></ul>
  6. 6. Orderly System of Blood Flow <ul><li>DeOxygenated Blood from All Body Tissues Enters Right Atrium thru The Superior Vena Cava and Inferior Vena Cava </li></ul><ul><li>Right Atrium Contracts and Blood Flows thru Tricuspid Valve into Right Ventricle </li></ul><ul><li>Right Ventricle Contracts; Blood Pumped thru Pulmonary Valve into Pulmonary Artery; Carried to Lungs to be Oxygenated </li></ul><ul><li>Oxygenated Blood Enters Left Atrium from Pulmonary Veins </li></ul><ul><li>Left Atrium Contracts and Blood Flows thru Mitral Valve into Left Ventricle </li></ul><ul><li>From Left Ventricle Blood Pumped thru Aortic Valve into Aorta, which Carries Blood to All Parts of the Body </li></ul>
  7. 7. Blood Vessels <ul><li>Form a Network of Tubes That Carry Blood Between Heart and Body Cells and Tissues </li></ul><ul><li>Provide Environment in which Blood Cells Can Perform their Function </li></ul><ul><li>Three Types </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Arteries: Carry Blood Away from the Heart </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Veins: Carry Blood Back to the Heart </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Capillaries: Exchange Sites Between Blood and Tissues </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Lumen: Channel Within the Vessels through which Blood Flows </li></ul>
  8. 8.
