  3. Fibrillation
    Rapid heart rate with uncoordinated contractions
  4. Hemorrhoids
    Varicose veins
  5. Phlebitis
    Inflammation of a vein
  6. Atherosclerosis
    Accumulation of fatty materials beneath inner lining of the arteries
  7. Angina Pectoris
    Chest pain
  8. Thromboembolism
    Blood clot moving along within circulation
  9. Myocardial Infarction
    Death of cardiac muscle tissue due to lack of oxygen gas
  10. Congestive Heart Failure
    Inability of the heat to maintain adequate circulation
  11. Atrioventricular Valves
    • Closure of these valves causes the first heart sound
    • Mitral and tricuspid valve
  12. Semilunar Valves
    • Closure of these valves causes the second heart sound
    • These valves are open only during ventricular systole
    • Pulmonary and aortic semilunar valve
  13. Endocardium
    Lines the heart and continues to line blood vessels
  14. Myocardium
    Made up of cardiac muscle
  15. Visceral Pericardium
    Inner layer of the serous pericardium
  16. Epicardium
    Forms the outer surface of the heart
  17. Mitral Valve
    Valve that separates the left atrium from the left ventricle
  18. Chordae Tendinae
    Supports structures for the valve leaflets
  19. Tricuspid Valve
    Valve that separates the right atrium from the right ventricle
  20. Pulmonary Semilunar Valve
    Valve that separates right ventricle from the pulmonary artery
  21. Aortic Semilunar Valve
    Valve that separates the left ventricle from the aorta
