  2. 37–1 The Circulatory System A. Functions of the Circulatory System • The human circulatory system consists of the heart, a series of blood vessels, and the blood that flows through them

  3. B. The Heart • A picture of the structures of the Heart is found on page 944 in your book • Myocardium – thick layer or muscle that the powerful contractions pump blood through the circulatory system.

  4. Aorta Brings oxygen-rich blood from the left ventricle to the rest of the body Superior Vena Cava Large vein that brings oxygen-poor blood from the upper part of the body to the right atrium Pulmonary Arteries Bring oxygen-poor blood to the lungs Pulmonary Veins Bring oxygen-rich blood from each of the lungs to the left atrium Pulmonary Valve Prevents blood from flowing back into the right ventricle after it has entered the pulmonary artery Aortic Valve Prevents blood from flowing back into the left ventricle after it has entered the aorta Mitral Valve Prevents blood from flowing back into the left atrium after it has entered the left ventricle Tricuspid Valve Prevents blood from flowing back into the right atrium after it has entered the right ventricle Inferior Vena Cava Vein that brings oxygen-poor blood from the lower part of the body to the right atrium Figure 37-3 The Structures of the Heart Section 37-1 Left Atrium Right Atrium Left Ventricle Septum Right Ventricle

  5. 1. Circulation Through the Body  Pulmonary circulation – pathway of oxygen-poor blood that pumps from heart to lungs  Systemic circulation – pathway oxygen rich blood is pumped from the heart to rest of the body

  6. Capillaries of head and arms Superior vena cava Pulmonary artery Aorta Pulmonary vein Capillaries of left lung Capillaries of right lung Inferior vena cava Capillaries of abdominal organs and legs Figure 37-2 The Circulatory System Section 37-1

  7. 2. Circulation Through the Heart  Valves – flaps of connective tissue between atria and the ventricles  Creates one way traffic of blood

  8. 3. Heartbeat  Two networks of muscle fibers in the heart, one in the atria and the other in the ventricles  Pacemaker – the nodes that start heart muscle contraction  The Sinoatrial node starts the wave for the heart muscle contraction

  9. The Sinoatrial Node Section 37-1 Contraction of Atria Contraction of Ventricles Sinoatrial (SA) node Conducting fibers Atrioventricular (AV) node

  10. C. Blood Vessels Aorta – the first of a series of blood vessels that carry the blood on its round trip through body and back to the heart 1. Arteries  Arteries - large vessels that carry blood form the heart to the tissues of the body  Most of the time filled with oxygen-rich blood

  11. 2. Capillaries  Capillaries are the smallest of the blood vessels.  The walls can be 1 cell thick  Bring nutrients and oxygen to the needed areas and absorb waste products and carbon dioxide 3. Veins  Veins – vessels that return blood back to the heart  many are located between skeletal muscle this way every time you contract you push blood back to the heart

  13. D. Blood Pressure • The heart by makes fluid pressure • A normal blood pressure reading is 120/80

  14. • The first number is the systolic pressure – force felt in arteries when ventricles contract • The 2nd number is the diastolic pressure – force felt in the arteries when ventricles relax • Blood pressure is normally regulated by the medulla oblongata and autonomic nervous system

  15. E. Diseases of the Circulatory System Atherosclerosis – condition in which fatty deposits called plaque build up on the inner walls of the arteries. This can cause a blockage in the blood vessels causing a heart attack of stroke 1. High Blood Pressure A.K.A hypertention, forces the heart to work harder and might wear out quicker 2. Consequences of Atherosclerosis Blood clots, can be seen blood shot eyes Heart attack Stroke

  16. 3. Circulatory System Health Cardiovascular diseases are easier to prevent that to cure Exercise, control weight, reduce stress Diet of low saturated fat and cholesterol Cardiovascular diseases are also reduced by not smoking
