Cardiovascular System

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
