Card Set Information
Bio Mechanical Engineering
Study of diseases
Wound that does not heal properly
Blow out in the walls of the blood vessels
High fluid pressure in the eye
Put contrast medium into blood stream to see under light
The space in the middle of a vein or artery
"heart" "Blood Vessels"
deliver blood from the heart to the organs
deliver blood back to the heart
Carries oxygen poor blood to the lungs.
Hands and feet
Fluid accumulation in the abdomen
O2 rich blood goes to organs while O2 depleted blood returns to the heart.
Inferior Vena Cava
"Lower" "Vein" "Cavity"
Large vein which returns blood back to the heart from the lower limbs
Narrowing of blood vessel which reduces flow.
Lower portion of the heart which pumps the blood.
Upper portion of the heart which primes the ventricle
Small blood vessels which feed cells
Blood vessels of the larger blood vessels
"On top" "kidneys"
Organ on top of the kidneys
cardio - myo - cyte
"heart" "muscle" "cell"
Relates voltage of a cell to ion concentration
Receptor connection between cells and tissue
Sino - atrial node
Sinus - pocket structure
Initiates the heart beat as it depolarizes at a fast rate.
Atrial Ventricular Node
Transmits depolarization from atrium to ventricle with a time delay so the "atrium kick" can complete.
Transmit depolarization from atrium ventricular node to heart apex
Large proteins in plasma (most common) which increase osmatic pressure into the capillary.
Staking of RBC in a low shear environment
RBC are forced to center of vessel due to pressure gradient formed due to Bernoulli effect.
"Red" "Increase" Drug that increases hematocrit
Fraction of RBC by volume in the bloode (~0.45)
An injection of a small finite amount.
Due to axial streaming side branches may be RBC deficient.
Sickle Cell Disease
Defect where RBC becomne rigid and mishaped.
Increase viscosity and do not make it through capillaries.
