Lifespan of a RBC
Tunica interna
Composed of a lining of simple squamous epithelium > in contact with the blood; a basement membrane; q layer of elastic tissue known as the INTERNAL ELASTIC LAMINA
Elastic arteries
Conducting - aorta, common carotid; wall is thin compared to size of lumen, conduct blood to medium-sized arteries
Muscular arteries
Distributing - brachial, femoral; capable of vasoconstriction and vasodilation to adjust the rate of blood flow to various structures of the body
Distal ends of two or more vessels unite to form an interconnecting network; between arteries - provide alternate routes for blood to reach a tissue or organ; collateral circulation- alternate blood route
End arteries
Arteries that do not anastomose; occlusion interrupts the blood supply to a whole segment of an organ
Vado vasorem
System of blood vessels within a blood vessel itself
Very small, almost microscopic, arteries that deliver blood to capillaries; major function is vasoconstriction and vasodilation; key role in regulating blood flow to capillaries and regulations BLOOD PRESSURE
Microscopic vessels through which materials are exchanged between blood and tissue; often called microcirculation; usually connect arterioles and venules; ring of smooth muscle fibers called pre capillary sphincter a regulate blood flow through true capillaries
True capillaries
Emerge from arterioles or metarterioles and are not on the direct route from arteriole to venule
Intermittent contraction and relaxation of sphincter and smooth muscle allows blood to enter into the area intermittently
A vessel that emerges from an arteriole - passes through the capillary network - directly to a venule forming an Arteriovenous Shunt
Thoroughfare Channel
Distal end of metarteriole; no smooth muscle; low resistance pathway; reduces blood flow through the capillaries; circulation patterns are controlled by the autonomic nervous system
Small vessels that are formed from the union of several capillaries > merge to form veins (drain blood from capillaries into veins)
Consist of the same 3 tunica layers like that of an artery except that tunica media and interna are thinner and the tunica externa are thicker
Blood flow
Volume of blood that flows through any tissue during a given period of time (ml/min)
Blood velocity
Inversely proportional to the cross-sectional Ada of blood vessels
Circulation time
Time it takes blood to make an entire circuit - right atrium to right atrium (approx. 1 min.)
Volume of blood flow
Determined by pressure and resistance; blood flows from regions of higher pressure to regions of lower pressure; the higher the resistance, the lower the blood flow in any particular area
Blood pressure
Hydrostatic pressure e exerted on the walls of a blood vessel
Factors of blood pressure
Cardiac output
Blood volume and viscosity
Elasticity of vessels (arteries)
As blood leaves the aorta and flows through the systemic circulation, it's pressure progressively falls to 0 mmHg by the time it reaches the right atrium
Pulse pressure
Difference between systolic BP and diastolic BP; normally about 49 mm Hg; gives information about condition of arteries
Opposition to blood flow as a result of friction between blood and the walls of the vessels - is dependent upon 3 variables
1. Blood viscosity
2. Blood vessel length
3. Blood vessel radius
Systemic vascular resistance
The sum total of all of the vascular resistances due to the systemic vessels
Venous return
Volume of blood flowing back to the heart from the systemic veins - is dependent on:
1. Skeletal muscle contraction
2. Valves in veins
3. Respiratory pressure waves
4. Venoconstriction
Capillary exchange
Refers to the entering and exiting of substances through the capillaries
Consists of protein (globin) and 4 nonprotein pigments called Hemes - each capable of combining with one oxygen molecule
Increase in number of WBCs above 10,000
Decrease in number of WBCs below 5,000
Positive chemotaxis
Attraction of phagocytes to an injured area
Process by which WBCs leave the bloodstreann
WBCs move through interstitial spaces by self propulsion called amoeboid motion
Presence of granules in cytoplasm; type of WBC filled with microscopic granules that are little sacs containing enzymes, compounds that digest microorganisms
Nucleus with 2-5 lobes; granules stain pink in neutral solution; 54-62% of total WBC *phagocytosis, destruction of bacteria
Nucleus is bilobed; granules stain red in acid stain; killing of parasitic worms and help control inflammation and allergic reactoons
Nucleus lobed; granules stain blue in basic stain; *release heparin, histamine, and seratonin in allergic reactions, intensify inflammatory response
Destruction of relatively large particles by phagocytosis
Nucleus nearly fills cell; sky blue cytoplasm; *immune response
Blood clotting
A. Formation of prothrombinase
B. Conversion of prothrombin to thrombin
C. Conversion of soluble fibrinogen into insoluble fibrin
