2

6. What type of muscle tissue is found in the heart and pumps blood through the body?

Smooth muscle tissue pg. 68. WKST Then Body Transport System

7. If your pulse rate decreases, your heart is beating

Slower than before pg. 68. WKST Then Body Transport System

4

10. Place the following events is sequence: A) the atria begins to fill up with blood; B) the valve between the atria and ventricle close; C) blood is pushed out of the heart

A,B,C pg.68. WKST Then Body Transport System

15. Through which type of circulation does blood flow to your hands and feet?

Systematic pg.68. WKST Then Body Transport System

6

19. When the ventricles contract blood is pumped

Our of the heart pg.73. Exterior5FHeart

7

20. What causes blood pressure?

The force with which the ventricles contract pg. 68. WKST Then Body Transport System

8

23. What word best describes the beating of the heart and the circulation of blood?

Automatic pg.68. WKST Then Body Transport System

9

24. What is the function of the group of cells in the heart called the pacemaker?

Sending out signals to make the heart muscle contract pg.68. WKST Then Body Transport System

10

26. In which vessels are materials exchanged between the blood and the body's cells?

Capillaries pg. 68. WKST Then Body Transport System

11

31. How does pulmonary circulation differ from systematic circulation?

Systematic circulation occurs throughout the body; pulmonary circulation occurs in the heart and lungs pg.73. Exterior5FHeart

12

34. Blood vessels that carry blood away from the heart are called?

Arteries pg.73. Exterior5FHeart

13

36. What role does your brain play in the circulation of blood through the body?

It signals the heart to beat pg.73. Exterior5FHeart

14

40. True/False
The left ventricle pumps blood to the

False it's to the right lungs pg.73. Exterior5FHeart

15

42. Blood flows from the heart to the body through veins

False it's atrteries not veins pg. 73. Exterior5FHeart

16

43. The force with which the ___________ regulates the rate at which the heart beats

Ventricles/heart pg. 68. WKST Then Body Transport System

17

44. The group of cells called the _______ regulates the rate at which the heart beats

Pacemaker pg. 68. WKST Then Body Transport System

18

45. Blood that is rich in oxygen leaves the heart through the blood vessels known as ______

Aorta pg.73. Exterior5FHeart

19

53. The circulatory system carries the needed materials, oxygen, and ___________ to the body cells?

Glucose, nutrients pg.68. WKST Then Body Transport System

20

54. Blood is pumped through blood vessels by the action of the organ known as the __________

Heart pg.73. Exterior5FHeart

21

55. Substances are exchanged between the blood and body cells in the blood vessels known as

Capillaries pg.68. WKST Then Body Transport System

22

56. Is the left ventricle high in oxygen or low in oxygen?

High in oxygen because it has just come from the left atrium which receives oxygen-rich blood from the lungs pg.73. Exterior5FHeart

23

57. After leaving the right atrium where does blood flow?

The right ventricle pg.73. Exterior5FHeart

24

61. What are the blood vessels called in the left atrium and what level of oxygen does it have?

It is pulmonary veins and its high in oxygen. Pg.73. Exterior5FHeart

25

64. Where does the pathways of blood start?

The two vena cavaes which are superior and inferior pg.73. Exterior5FHeart

26

64. After the pulmonary trunk where does the blood go to and is the blood oxygenated or deoxygenated?

Pulmonary arteries deoxygenated pg.73. Exterior5FHeart

27

64. After the pulmonary arteries where does the blood flow to and is it oxygenated or deoxygenated?

The blood flows to right and left pulmonary veins which are deoxygenated pg.73. Exterior5FHeart
