    • Superior and Inferior Vena Cava
    • Right Atrium
    • Right Ventricle
    • Pulmonary arteries 
    • Lungs
    • Pulmonary Veins
    • Left Atrium
    • Left ventricle
    • Aorta
  2. Palpation Sites
    • Carotid: neck
    • Radial: wrist
    • Brachial: elbow (bp test site)
  3. Heart Rate HR
    Beats per minute BPM
  4. Stroke Volume SV
    Amount of blood ejected from LV in a single contraction
  5. Cardiac Output Q
    HR x SV
  6. Blood Pressure BP
    Amount of force exerted on arterial walls
  7. Systolic Blood Pressure SBP
    Pressure when heart contracts
  8. Diastolic Blood Pressure DBP
    Pressure on arterial walls when heart is at rest
  9. Arteriovenous Oxygen Difference
    Difference on amount of O2 between arterial and venous blood.
  10. Upper Respiratory Tract

    • Sinus
    • Pharynx 
    • Larynx
    • Conducts air to lower respiratory system
  11. Lower Respiratory System

    • Bronchioles
    • Alveoli
    • Gas Exchange
  12. Maximal Oxygen Consumption  VO2max
    • ml*kg*min

  13. Chronic Adaptations to Cardio Exercise
    • Decreased:
    • BP
    • HR
    • Blood Lactate
