    Presentation Transcript
    1. The Heart 18

    2. Heart Anatomy • Approximately the size of your fist • Location • Superior surface of diaphragm • Left of the midline • Anterior to the vertebral column, posterior to the sternum

    3. Heart Anatomy Figure 18.1

    4. Coverings of the Heart: Anatomy • Pericardium – a double-walled sac around the heart composed of: • A superficial fibrous pericardium • A deep two-layer serous pericardium • The parietal layer lines the internal surface of the fibrous pericardium • The visceral layer or epicardium lines the surface of the heart • They are separated by the fluid-filled pericardial cavity

    5. Coverings of the Heart: Physiology The pericardium: • Protects and anchors the heart • Prevents overfilling of the heart with blood • Allows for the heart to work in a relatively friction-free environment

    6. Pericardial Layers of the Heart Figure 18.2

    7. Heart Wall • Epicardium– visceral layer of the serous pericardium • Myocardium – cardiac muscle layer forming the bulk of the heart • Endocardium – endothelial layer of the inner myocardial surface

    8. External Heart: Major Vessels of the Heart (Anterior View) Vessels returning blood to the heart include: • Superior and inferior venae cavae • Right and left pulmonary veins Vessels conveying blood away from the heart include: • Pulmonary trunk, which splits into right and left pulmonary arteries • Ascending aorta (three branches) – brachiocephalic, left common carotid, and subclavian arteries

    11. Gross Anatomy of Heart: Frontal Section Figure 18.4e

    12. Atria of the Heart • Atria are the receiving chambers of the heart • Each atrium has a protruding auricle • Pectinate muscles mark atrial walls • Blood enters right atria from superior and inferior venae cavae and coronary sinus • Blood enters left atria from pulmonary veins

    13. Ventricles of the Heart • Ventricles are the discharging chambers of the heart • Papillary muscles and trabeculae carneae muscles mark ventricular walls • Right ventricle pumps blood into the pulmonary trunk • Left ventricle pumps blood into the aorta

    14. Pathway of Blood Through the Heart and Lungs Right atrium  tricuspid valve  right ventricle  pulmonary semilunar valve  pulmonary arteries  lungs  pulmonary veins  left atrium  bicuspid valve  left ventricle  aortic semilunar valve  aorta  systemic circulation

    15. Pathway of Blood Through the Heart and Lungs Figure 18.5

    16. Heart Valves • Heart valves ensure unidirectional blood flow through the heart • Atrioventricular (AV) valves lie between the atria and the ventricles • AV valves prevent backflow into the atria when ventricles contract • Chordae tendineae anchor AV valves to papillary muscles

    17. Heart Valves • Aortic semilunar valve lies between the left ventricle and the aorta • Pulmonary semilunar valve lies between the right ventricle and pulmonary trunk • Semilunar valves prevent backflow of blood into the ventricles
