The heart

  1. 1. THE HEART
  2. 5. Left ventricle
  3. 7. ANATOMY AND FUNCTION OF THE HEART <ul><li>The heart is a muscular organ a little larger than your fist weighing between 7 and 15 ounces (250 to 300 gm)in female & 300-350gm in male. It is responsible for pumping blood through the blood vessels by repeated, rhythmic contractions. The average heart beats 100,000 times per day pumping about 2,000 gallons (7,571 liters) of blood. The average human heart beating at 72 BPM (beats per minute), will beat approximately 2.5 billion times during a lifetime of 66 years. </li></ul><ul><li>The heart is usually situated in the middle of the thorax with the largest part of the heart slightly offset to the left underneath the breastbone or sternum and is surrounded by the lungs. The sac enclosing the heart is known as the pericardium. </li></ul>
  4. 11. <ul><li>Right Heart Chambers: Pulmonary Pump </li></ul><ul><li>Right Atrium (forms most of base of heart) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Receives O 2 -poor blood from body via IVC, SVC, Coronary sinus </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Ventral wall ( w/Pectinate muscles) and dorsal wall (no pectinate muscles) separated by crista terminalis </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Fossa Ovalis - on interatrial septum, remnant of Foramen Ovale </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Right Ventricle </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Receives O 2 -poor blood from right atrium through tricuspid valve </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Pumps blood to lungs via Pulmonary Semilunar Valve in pulmonary trunk </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Trabeculae Carnae- muscle ridges along ventral surface </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Chordae Tendinae- fibrous cords running between AV valve cusps and papilary muscles </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Papillary Muscles (3) -cone-shaped muscles within ventricles to which chordae tendinae are anchored </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Moderator Band (septomarginal trabeucla)-muscular band connecting anterior papillary muscle to interventricular septum </li></ul></ul>
  5. 12. Left Heart Chambers <ul><li>Left Atrium </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Receives O 2 -rich blood from 4 Pulmonary Veins </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Pectinate Muscles line only auricle </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Left Ventricle (forms apex of heart) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Receives blood from Left Atrium via bicuspid valve </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Pumps blood into aorta via Aortic Semilunar Valve to body </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Same structures as Rt Ventricle: Trabeculae carnae, Papillary muscles (2), Chordae tendinae </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>No Moderator band </li></ul></ul>

  24. 33. CAUSES OF RHF Cause What is it? How does it cause right-sided heart failure? Left-sided heart failure Left ventricle does not pump blood efficiently, leading to pressure buildup behind the left side of the heart that eventually causes the right side of the heart to fail Blood backs up behind the left ventricle into the left atrium, in the lungs, and then eventually in to the right ventricle, which also eventually fails, allowing blood to then back up further into the extremities, the liver, and the other organs. Chronic lung disease Includes emphysema, embolism, and other causes of pulmonary hypertension High blood pressure in the pulmonary arteries increases workload of the right ventricle, eventually causing the RVF
  25. 34. Coronary artery disease Blockage of the arteries that supply blood to your heart CAD can cause left-sided heart failure leading to right-sided heart failure, or can directly cause right-sided heart failure by blocking blood supply to the right ventricle Pulmonic stenosis Narrowing of the pulmonic valve that limits blood flow out of the right ventricle ncreases the work of the right ventricle; similar to chronic lung disease Tricuspid stenosis Narrowing of the tricuspid valve Limits blood flow out of the right atrium, causing enlargement of the right atrium and backup of blood flowing to it Left-to-right shunt An abnormal connection between the left and right side of the heart, usually present from birth Causes a volume overload of the right ventricle, similar to tricuspid regurgitation
