circuits of the blood
Circuits of the Blood

There are 3 circuits:

  • Systemic Circulation
    • From the left ventricle to the aorta and on to the body
    • Back to the heart via the superior and inferior vena cava to the right atrium
  • Pulmonary Circulation
    • From right ventricle to the pulmonary trunk, on to the pulmonary (left and right) arteries and to the lungs
    • Back to the heart via the (left and right) pulmonary veins
  • Cardiac/Coronary Circulation
    • Supply needs of the heart itself
    • Arteries go to the heart branching off of the aorta
    • Valveless veins return to directly to the right atrium
heart skeleton
Heart Skeleton
  • Consists of plate of fibrous connective tissue between atria and ventricles
  • Fibrous rings around valves to support
  • Serves as electrical insulation between atria and ventricles
  • Provides site for muscle attachment
electrical properties
Electrical Properties
  • Resting membrane potential (RMP) present
  • Action potentials
    • Rapid depolarization followed by rapid, partial early repolarization. Prolonged period of slow repolarization which is plateau phase and a rapid final repolarization phase
    • Voltage-gated channels
refractory period
Refractory Period
  • Absolute: Cardiac muscle cell completely insensitive to further stimulation
  • Relative: Cell exhibits reduced sensitivity to additional stimulation
  • Long refractory period prevents tetanic contractions
  • Action potentials through myocardium during cardiac cycle produces electric currents than can be measured
  • Pattern
    • P wave
      • Atria depolarization
    • QRS complex
      • Ventricle depolarization
      • Atria repolarization
    • T wave:
      • Ventricle repolarization
cardiac arrhythmias
Cardiac Arrhythmias
  • Tachycardia: Heart rate in excess of 100bpm
  • Bradycardia: Heart rate less than 60 bpm
  • Sinus arrhythmia: Heart rate varies 5% during respiratory cycle and up to 30% during deep respiration
  • Premature atrial contractions: Occasional shortened intervals between one contraction and succeeding, frequently occurs in healthy people
cardiac cycle
Cardiac Cycle
  • Heart is two pumps that work together, right and left half
  • Repetitive contraction (systole) and relaxation (diastole) of heart chambers
  • Blood moves through circulatory system from areas of higher to lower pressure.
    • Contraction of heart produces the pressure
heart sounds
Heart Sounds
  • First heart sound or “lubb”
    • Atrioventricular valves and surrounding fluid vibrations as valves close at beginning of ventricular systole
  • Second heart sound or “dupp”
    • Results from closure of aortic and pulmonary semilunar valves at beginning of ventricular diastole, lasts longer
  • Third heart sound (occasional)
    • Caused by turbulent blood flow into ventricles and detected near end of first one-third of diastole
mean arterial pressure map
Mean Arterial Pressure (MAP)
  • Average blood pressure in aorta
  • MAP=CO x PR
    • CO is amount of blood pumped by heart per minute
      • CO=SV x HR
        • SV: Stroke volume of blood pumped during each heart beat
        • HR: Heart rate or number of times heart beats per minute
      • Cardiac reserve: Difference between CO at rest and maximum CO
    • PR is total resistance against which blood must be pumped
regulation of the heart
Regulation of the Heart
  • Intrinsic regulation: Results from normal functional characteristics, not on neural or hormonal regulation
    • Starling’s law of the heart
  • Extrinsic regulation: Involves neural and hormonal control
    • Parasympathetic stimulation
      • Supplied by vagus nerve, decreases heart rate, acetylcholine secreted
    • Sympathetic stimulation
      • Supplied by cardiac nerves, increases heart rate and force of contraction, epinephrine and norepinephrine released
heart homeostasis
Heart Homeostasis
  • Effect of blood pressure
    • Baroreceptors monitor blood pressure
  • Effect of pH, carbon dioxide, oxygen
    • Chemoreceptors monitor
  • Effect of extracellular ion concentration
    • Increase or decrease in extracellular K+ decreases heart rate
  • Effect of body temperature
    • Heart rate increases when body temperature increases, heart rate decreases when body temperature decreases
effects of aging on the heart
Effects of Aging on the Heart
  • Gradual changes in heart function, minor under resting condition, more significant during exercise
  • Hypertrophy of left ventricle
  • Maximum heart rate decreases
  • Increased tendency for valves to function abnormally and arrhythmias to occur
  • Increased oxygen consumption required to pump same amount of blood
