Describe hormones effect in heart rate?
Hormones Epinephrine/Nor-Epinephine and thyroid hormones increase HR by their effect on the SA node. After a big stimulation of sympathetic system, the myocardium may become overstimulated that an abnormal contraction may occur.

What are the two general classes of cardiac muscle cells involved int he normal heart beat?
- Contractile Cells
- Conducting Cells
Describe the hearts conducting system?
The conducting system initiates and distribute the electrical impulses within the heart. Nodal cells establish the rate of cardiac contraction (SA/AV Node) and conducting cells distribute the contractile stimulus from SA node to atrial myocardium and AV node to ventricular Myocardium.
Where is the SA Node located?
SA Node is located in the posterior wall of the right atrium, near the entrance of superior vena cava. SA Node contains PACEMAKER CELLS, which establish the heart rate.
Where is the AV Node?
Explain the AV Node conduction sequence?
- AV node sits within the floor of the right atrium, near the opening of the Coronary Sinus.
- * The signal slows at it leaves the nodal pathways and enter the AV node because the nodal cells are smaller than the conducting cells. As a result there is a 100 msec of delay from SA node impulse to AV node.
- * This delay allows the atria to contract before the ventricle do; thus allows the ventricle to fill.
- * After brief delay, the impulse is conducted to the atrioventricular bundle and the bundle branches of the Purkinje fibers and PAPILLARY MUSCLES. The Purkinje fibers distribute the impulse to the ventricular myocardium, and ventricular contraction begins.
Describe the effect of Sympathetic and Parasympathetic System on ESV (end Systole Volume)?

- Aortic Baroreceptors monitor blood pressure within the ascending aorta. Any changes triggers the aortic reflex which adjust blood pressure to maintain normal blood flow to the systemic circuit.
- Carotid Sinus Baroreceptors trigger reflexes that maintain adequate blood flow to the brain.
When blood pressure falls below normal, baroreceptors output is halt accordingly. An increase in cardiac output due to stimulation of SNS tot he heart, results in stimulation of cardioaccelleratory system. Widespread peripheral vasoconstriction occur to restore the normal blood volume in the body.
