- a is a surgical procedure in which the heart of a recently decreased donor is transplanted to the recipient, and the recipient's diseased heart is removed.
- b Separates the 2 ventricles, which has a thick, muscular part toward the apex and a thin, membranous part toward the atria.
- c Abnormally high systemic blood pressure. Affects about 1/5 of the U.S. population.
- d results when a prolonged lack of blood flow to a part of the cardiac muscle leads to a lack of oxygen and ultimately cellular death.
- e is the pressure the contracting left ventricle must produce to overcome the pressure in the aorta and move blood into the aorta.
5 Multiple choice questions
- is a larger branch of the right coronary artery, and other branches supply blood to the lateral wall of the right ventricle.
- carry blood from the lungs to the left atrium.
- on the surface of the heart.
- or minute volume, is the amount of blood pumped by the heart per minute.
- flaplike, are extensions of the atria that can be seen anteriorly between each atrium and ventricle
5 True/False questions
Voltage-gated Na+ channels → membrane channels open, bringing about the depolarization phase of the action potential.
Systemic circulation → delivers oxygen and nutrients to all the remaining tissues of the body. Carries blood to the rest of the body.
Afferent neurons → Project primarily through the glossopharyngeal (cranial nerve IX) and vagus (cranial nerve X) nerves from the baroreceptors to an area in the medulla oblongata.
Ventricles → flaplike, are extensions of the atria that can be seen anteriorly between each atrium and ventricle
Extrinsic regulation → The semilunar valves are pushed open, and blood flows from the ventricles into the pulmonary trunk and aorta.
