Leitner Final

Pulmonary Trunk

Blood leaving the right ventricle enters the

Pulmonary trunk

The pulmonary semilunar valve guards the entrance to the

SA Node-Pacemaker

The pace maker cells of the heart are located in the


The left and right pulmonary arteries carry blood to the

Left Atrium

Blood returning from the lungs enters the

Coronary Arteries

The first blood vessels to branch from the aorta are the

AV Node

relay the signal to contract to the ventricles

the lungs

The right ventricle pumps blood to


the visceral pericardium is the same as the

tricuspid valve

The atrioventricular valve that is located on the side of the heart that receives the superior vena cava is the

Right Atrium

Blood returning from the systemic circuit first enters the

collect blood

the function of an atrium is to

Inferior vena cava

The right atrium receives blood from the

Pulmonary Vein

Vessel that transports oxygenated blood from the lungs back to the heart

systemic circuit

The left ventricle pumps blood to

left atrium

Which area receives blood directly from the four pulmonary veins

semi lunar valves close

The second heart sound is heard when the


Permitting exchange of nutrients and gases between the blood and tissue cells is the primary function of ____________.


A heart rate is substantially slower then normal ( less than 60 beats per minute) is called

Capillaries of the active muscles will be engaged with blood

What is likely to happen during vigorous exercise?


Carry blood away from the heart

the AV valves close

The first heart beat is heard when

Foramen Ovale

Connects the two atrias in the fetal heart

take your blood pressure

Sphygmomanometer(cuff) is used


The carotid artery is located in the:

Coronary Arteries

The source of blood carried to capillaries in the myocardium (heart muscle) would be the ____________

varocose veins

Venous valves which no longer close properly cause

Ductus venosus

A special fetal vessel that allows blood to bypass the liver


A much faster heart rate then normal is called

Path of blood flow within the systemic vascular system

Arteries, arterioles, capillary beds, venules, veins

pericardial cavity

contains a lubricating fluid called serous fluid

170/96 in a 50-year-old man

Blood pressure that reading would be indicative of hypertension ( high blood pressure)

pulmonary vein

blood vessels that caries oxygenated blood


chambers that are located superiorly and are the receiving chambers of the heart

right atrium

superior vena cava empties deoxygenated blood into the

both the aorta and pulmonary trunk

Blood ejected from the ventricles enters which vessel during ventricular systole

Av Valve

Which of the following is NOT part of the conduction system of the heart
-bundle of his
-AV Valve
-AV node

left ventricle to the left atrium

When the ventricles contact, the bicuspid (mitral) valves prevent blood from flowing from the:


In which blood vessel is blood pressure the highest

lub-dup sound of the heart

The first sound is longer and louder and is caused by the closer of the AV valves; the second sound is shorter and sharper and is caused by closure of the semilunar valves

umbilical cord

Oxygen and nutrients from the placenta to fetus

Path for transmission of an impulse

SA Node, Av Node, AV bundle, right and left bundle branches, purkinje fibers
