  5. 5. Superior Vena Cava Large vein that brings oxygen-poor blood from the upper part of the body to the right atrium Aorta Brings oxygen-rich blood from the left ventricle to the rest of the body Pulmonary Arteries Bring oxygen-poor blood to the lungs Pulmonary Veins Bring oxygen-rich blood from each of the lungs to the left atrium Pulmonary Valve Prevents blood from flowing back into the right ventricle after it has entered the pulmonary artery Right Atrium Tricuspid Valve Prevents blood from flowing back into the right atrium after it has entered the right ventricle Inferior Vena Cava Vein that brings oxygen-poor blood from the lower part of the body to the right atrium Right Ventricle Septum Left Ventricle Mitral Valve Prevents blood from flowing back into the left atrium after it has entered the left ventricle Aortic Valve Prevents blood from flowing back into the left ventricle after it has entered the aorta Left Atrium Question: What is the advantage of a 4-chambered heart?

  26. 27. VI. Circulatory Problems <ul><li>Atherosclerosis – Condition in which lipids collect under the inner lining of damaged artery walls, eventually narrowing or blocking the artery and obstructing blood flow. </li></ul>Heart Murmur – Whooshing sound caused by the back flow of blood from the left ventricle across the mitral valve back into the left atrium Anemia – A decrease in number of healthy red blood cells Coronary Thrombosis – (Heart Attack) Blockage of coronary arteries preventing oxygen to reach a particular area of the heart muscle Atherosclerosis
  27. 28. VI. Problems Cont. <ul><li>Stroke – Occurs when blood vessels leading to or in the brain clot or burst causing that area of the brain to die due to lack of oxygen </li></ul>Sickle Cell Rheumatic Fever – A serious inflammatory condition which follows Streptococcal pharyngitis ( strep throat). Can damage valves in the heart. Leukemia – cancer that originates in the blood – causes overproduction of leukocytes Sickle Cell Anemia – Genetic disorder, resulting in misshaped red blood cells
