Cardiovascular System

  1. 1. Cardiovascular System Weighing in at 10 ounces, the blood-filled muscle called the heart has become the universal symbol of love. The Greeks believed the heart was the seat of the spirit, the Chinese associated it with the center for happiness and the Egyptians thought the emotions and intellect arose from the heart. No one is sure the exact origin of the love association, however. One idea is that the heart got its "love mark" in the ancient Greek city of Cyrene, now in modern-day Libya. The colony was known for a plant called Silphium, with heart-shaped seed pods. Silphium had medicinal properties, and possibly also was used as an herbal contraceptive.hsc 1531 medical terminology | FSCJ | professor: michael l. whtichurch, MHS

  50. 50. Path of the Conduction System 1. Sinoatrial (SA) node, or pacemaker, is where electrical impulse begins  From SA node a wave of electricity travels through atria  Causing them to contract, or go into systole
  51. 51. Path of the Conduction System 2. Next, atrioventricular node (AV) is stimulated 3. This node transfers stimulation wave to bundle of His
