role of cardiovascular system
Role of Cardiovascular System

Transport O2 and nutrients to tissues

Remove CO2 and waste products from tissues

Maintenance of constant body temperature

Prevention of infection

anatomy of the heart
Anatomy of the Heart

Cardiac muscle

About size of fist

Located in thoracic cavity between lungs directly behind sternum

Titled  Apex (pointed end) is oriented to left


Walls of heart:

  • Pericardium – protective sac (reduces friction)
  • Epicardium – outer layer
  • Myocardium – layer made of cardiac muscle
  • Endocardium – innermost layer

The “Double Pump”

  • Right and left heart
  • Separated by interventricular septum
  • Right heart = right pump
    • Pump deoxygenated blood (just returned from body) to the lungs
    • Pulmonary circulation
  • Left heart = left pump
    • Pump oxygenated blood (just returned from lungs) to the rest of the body
    • Systemic circulation

4 chambers

    • Upper chambers = Atria (right & left)
    • Lower chambers = Ventricles (right & left)
      • Left ventricle (thickest) – pump blood through entire body
      • Right ventricle – pump blood short distance to lungs
heart valves
Heart Valves
    • Atria & ventricles separated by valve = Atrioventricular (AV) valves
    • Allows only one flow of blood (atria  ventricles)
    • Right side of heart  tricuspid valve
      • Prevent backflow from right ventricle to right atrium
    • Left side of heart  bicuspid (or mitral) valve
      • Prevent backflow from left ventricle to left atrium
  • Valves where blood leaves ventricles
    • Right side of heart  Pulmonary semilunar valve
      • Prevent backflow from pulmonary arteries to right ventricle
    • Left side of heart  Aortic semilunar valve
      • Separates aorta from left ventricle
pathway of blood flow
Pathway of Blood Flow
  • Right atrium receives deoxygenated blood from superior & inferior vena cava
    • Superior vena cava = returns blood from upper body
    • Inferior vena cava = returns blood from lower body
  • Blood moves from right atrium (through tricuspid vavle) to the right ventricle (passes tricuspid valve)
  • Pumped out of pulmonary arteries (through pulmonary semilunar valve) to lungs pumps it to the lungs (pulmonary circulation)


Oxygenated blood returns from lungs  now O2-rich

Through pulmonary veins into left atrium (only time a vein carries O2-rich blood!)

Blood travels from left atrium (through bicuspid valve) to left ventricle

Blood enters aorta (through aortic semilunar valve) & pumps to the whole body

cardiac cycle
Cardiac Cycle
  • Series of Events that lead to one heart beat
  • Relaxation = diastole
  • Contraction = systole
  • When blood pressure is measured it’s systolic pressure (120 mm Hg)/diastolic pressure (80 mm Hg)
arteries veins capillaries
Arteries, Veins & Capillaries

Arteries = vessels that carry blood away from heart

Veins = vessels that carry blood toward heart

Capillaries = microscopic vessels, 40, 000 km in length, exchange gasses and nutrients by diffusion between blood and tissues


In systemic circulation, arteries carry oxygenated blood from heart to body tissues, while veins carry deoxygenated blood back to heart

In pulmonary circulation, pulmonary arteries carry deoxygenated blood from heart to lungs, while pulmonary veins carry oxygenated blood from lungs back to heart

excitation of the heart
SA node = Pacemaker

AV node passes signal from atrium to ventricle

Purkinje fibres contract ventricles to push blood through pulmonary veins/arteries

Excitation of the Heart
P wave-atrial depolarization and immediate repolarization

QRS complex-depolarization of ventrical

T wave-ventricular repolarization

cardiac output
Cardiac Output
  • Q = L/min
  • At rest Q = 5-6 L/m, during exercise Q = 30 L/min
stroke volume
Stroke Volume
  • Is the amount of blood that is ejected from the left ventricle in a single beat
  • SV (mL) = LVEDV (mL) – LVESV (mL)
  • SV is regulated by 3 main factors:
    • LVEDV
    • Aortic blood pressure
    • Strength of ventricular contraction
heart rate hr
Heart Rate (HR)
  • Number of times the heart contracts per minute
  • Cardiac output is the product of stroke volume and heart rate:
  • Q (L/min) = SV (mL) x HR (beats/min)
  • Avg HR at rest = 72 b/min, average SV = 71 mL, therefore Q = 5040 mL/min or 5L/min
cardiovascular drift
Cardiovascular Drift
  • Initially during exercise, both SV and HR will increase, but after prolonged exercise SV may drop while HR continues to rise to maintain Q. This phenomena is called cardiovascular drift.
blood distribution changes during exercise
Blood distribution changes during exercise:
  • moving blood from less important systems and organs like the digestive tract, to more important areas, like muscles and the heart.
  • The brain always receives a constant supply (by volume) of blood, while the heart receives a constant % of blood.
  • Training will increase the efficiency of all of these factors at rest:
    • (BP (down), Q (up), HR (down), SV (up))
  • may increase the diameter of the coronary arteries and even blood volume.
