Circulatory system

Circulatory System


Circulatory system consists of

Circulatory system consists of:

  • Heart

  • Blood Vessels

  • Blood


Closed system in humans

Closed System in Humans


Arteries arterioles capillaries venules veins

Arteries, Arterioles, Capillaries, Venules, Veins


Circulatory system

Heart

Artery

Vein

Capillary

Venule

Arteriole


Portal vein

Portal Vein

Has capillaries at

both ends

E.g. hepatic portal vein

Carries:

  • glucose

  • amino acids

  • minerals

    from intestine to liver

Structure of Human CirculatorySystem


Heart

Heart

  • Located in thoracic cavity: area inside rib cage

  • Contains strong double pump

  • Made of a special muscle which does not tire

  • Coronary artery supplies heart itself with blood


Cardiac cycle

Cardiac Cycle


Systole and diastole

Systole and Diastole

  • Diastole: the filling phase of the heart with blood (the heart is relaxed)

  • Systole: the emptying phase when the heart muscles contract


Pacemakers

Pacemakers


Pacemakers1

Pacemakers

  • Heartbeat can occur independently of the brain

  • Controlled by a small bundle of specialised tissue called pacemakers (SA and AV nodes) in the right atrium

  • Sinoatrial (SA) node sends out regular electrical impulses causing the atria to contract

  • It also stimulates the atrio-ventricular (AV) node

  • The AV node then stimulates the ventricles to contract


What affects the pacemakers

What affects the pacemakers?

  • The pacemaker itself controls the heartbeat

  • Average rate = 75 beats per minute

  • But signals from the brain (via nerves) and hormones can change the rate at which it operates


Factors that can increase the heart rate include

Factors that can increase the heart rate include:

  • Exercise

  • Temperature

  • Emotions and shock


Factors that decrease the heart rate include

Factors that decrease the heart rate include:

  • Relaxation

  • Sleep

  • Alcohol


Pulse

Pulse

What causes a pulse?

The expansion of an artery due to the pumping of the heart

What is blood pressure?

  • Recall : Pressure = Force/area

  • Blood pressure is the force exerted by blood on the wall of a blood vessel


Effects of external factors on heart rate

Effects of External Factors on Heart Rate


To maintain a healthy heart
