Flashcards in circuits Deck (10):
1

the purpose of the pulmonary circuit

to reoxygenate blood

2

the purpose of the systemic circuit

to provide fresh, oxygenated blood to the body's cells and remove used, deoxygenated blood

3

dissolved substances includes

salts
glucose
hormones
proteins
waste products

4

pulmonary circuit

RA to the lungs to the left atrium
main function to reoxygenate blood

5

what if the pulmonary veins developed a blockage?

capillaries in lungs will rupture causing pulmonary edema
-at first the r ventricular load will increase a little bit, then drastically decrease

6

systemic circuit

LA to the body to the RA
main function is to adequately perfuse body's tissues

7

what impact would athlerosclerosis have on the workload of the left atrium?

it would increase vascular resistance

8

coronary circuit

from the aortic root to the heart to the RA

9

cardiomyocytes have an absolute requirement for aerobic ATP production. How is this impacted due to the coronary artery disease?

ATP will decrease due to less blood meanin less o2 influencing the blood pH causing the heart to beat faster increasing heart rate basically killing you faster resulting in heart attack because all the atp is now gone

10

reguardless of circuit most circulatory routes inclued

arteries to
arterioles to
capillaries to
venuoles to
veins
