  2. Cardiovascular system refers only to ...
    Passages where blood flows..(heart, arteries, veins, and capillaries).
  3. 2 major divisions of cardiovascular system are:
    • Pulmonary circuit 
    • Systemic circuit
  4. Which circuit supplies blood to the body?
    Systemic circuit
  5. Pulmonary circuit carries blood to ____ and then returns to _____.
    • Blood to lungs
    • Returns to heart
  6. Heart right pump = _____.
    Heart left pump = ______.
    • Right pump = Pulmonary
    • Left pump = Systemic
  7. Which side of the heart (name the circuit) receives deoxygenated blood from body?
    • Right , pulmonary circuit
    •  [It contains wastes, low nutrients and lots of CO2]
  8. Pulmonary circuit receives deoxygenated blood from body that contains wastes, low nutrients and lots of CO2 and pump blood into _______.

    Which divides into __& __ pulmonary _____.

    Transport blood to ____.

    _______ is unloaded. ______ is picked up.
    Then oxygen rich blood flows back to heart via the _______.
    • Pulmonary trunk
    • Divides into left & right pulmonary arteries.

    Transport blood to lung.

    • CO2 unloaded. Oxygen picked up.
    • Oxygen rich blood flows back to heart by pulmonary veins.
  9. Systemic circuit is which side of the heart?
  10. _____ leaves the left heart (systemic circuit) via the ______.
    Oxygen rich blood leaves L Heart via Aorta.
  11. Aorta contains large arch called____.
    Passes downward, dorsal to heart
    gives off ______ that supply to
    _____,____, upper limbs.
    Then Aorta travels through ______ and _______ cavities.
    Aortic arch.

    Gives off arteries that supply head, neck, upper limbs.

    Aorta then travels through thoracic & abdominal cavities.

    Purpose: sends off vessels that feed the body.
  12. What travel through thoracic and abdominal cavities to sends off vessels that feed the body?

    Blood then returns to right _____ via 2 large _____.

    Blood then returns to right heart via 2 large veins.(inferior vena cava, superior vena cava)
  13. 2 large veins that return blood to the heart?
    1. Inferior vena cava: blood from lower portions of body.

    2. Superior vena cava: blood from upper portions of body.
  14. Heart located in ______ cavity in the mediastinum.

    Heart is roughly the size of a fist.
    Weighs about ____oz.
    • thoracic cavity
    • heart = 10 oz.
  15. 2/3 of heart lies left of _____plane (normal axis).

    Broad superior portion is the _____.
    Inferior end is called ______.
    median plane

    • Superior portion = base
    • Inferior end = apex
  16. What is double walled sac enclosing heart?
  17. Pericardium anchored to _______from below and to _______tissue of _______above.
    Anchored to disphragm from below and to connective tissue of great vessels above.
  18. What?
    Tough fibrous layer of dense irregular connective tissue and a thin smooth serous layer...
    Parietal pericardium - covers heart surface
  19. What covers heart surface
    Parietal pericardium
  20. Parietal pericardium turns inward at base and forms __________.
    visceral pericardium
  21. Pericardial cavity lies between?

    contains ____ml of ______fluid.
    visceral and parietal pericarium

    5-30 ml of pericardial fluid
  22. Pericardial fluid function...
    Allows heart to beat w/ no friction, lubricates membranes, provides cushion
  23. Pericarditis? Results in?
    Inflammation of pericardium , results in friction and therefore pain w/ each beat.
