Right atrium

Receives oxygen poor blood from superior and inferior vena cavae.

1

Left atrium

Receives oxygenated blood to aorta which pumps to body

2

Right ventricle

Pumps deoxygenated blood out of left pulmonary artery to left lung

3

Left ventricle

Pumps oxygenated blood to aorta which pumps to body.

4

Group of nerve cells adjusts heart rate

Pacemaker

5

Organ that pumps blood through body

Heart

6

Made of heart, blood, blood vessels

Circulatory system

7

Flap of tissue prevents blood flowing backwards

Valve

8

Largest artery

Aorta

9

Largest

Inferior/superior vena cavae

10

Substances exchanged between blood and body cell

Capillaries

11

Vessels that supply heart blood

Coronary

12

Chemical weaves net of fibers across wound

Fibrin

13

Iron containing protein that binds oxygen molecules

Hemoglobin

14

After blood leaves heart what vessels does it go through in order

1. Veins
2. Arteries
3. Capillaries

15

Which vessel has most blood pressure

Arterys

16

Type of blood vessel allows diffusion through walls

Capillaries

17

2 factors help blood through veins

Valves & smooth muscle

18

Plasma

Description- liquid dissolved protein
Function- transports stuff

19

Red blood cell

Description- Hemoglobin, disk shaped, no nucleus
Function- carry oxygen

20

White blood cell

Description- Larger that red cell, has nucleus
Function- disease fighters

21

Platelet

Description- white blood cell fragments
Function- clots blood

22

B blood can get

B & o blood

23

Atherosclerosis

Artery walls thicken, fatty stuff builds up

24

Cholesterol

Fatty stuff that clog things

25

Heart attack

Result when arteries get too much cholesterol in them

26

Hypertension

High blood pressure

27

Atherosclerosis dangerous?

Can restrict blood flow to arteries and

28

1.

Deoxygenated blood enters Herat through superior or inferior vena cavae.

29

2.

Deoxygenated blood fills right atrium

30

3.

Both atria walls contract and blood goes down through valve and fill right ventricle

31

4.

Both vs contract and dblood leaves rv through pv and into pa

32

5.

Dblood enters lungs real eases cd picks up o to become oblood

33

6.

Oblood goes back to heart through pv

34

7.

Oblood enters heart and fill la

35

8.

As contract and oblood goes through valve to fill lv

36

9.

Both vs contract and oblood leaves through valve and aorta

37

10.

As branch into cs in body where o is dropped and co2 waste is picked up and dirty blood returns to heart through vs
