1 We've collected this information to help you to understand important things about staying healthy and happy. This packet is to be submitted to your teacher when classes resume. Make sure you follow the instructions carefully. Make sure all answers are on a separate looseleaf of paper. Make sure name, per is written on all papers.

2 Heart-y sayings Have you thought about all the sayings we have about the heart? Here’s a list that some kids came up with. I love you with all my heart. She has broken my heart. He died of a broken heart. He wore his heart on his sleeve. She was heartsick. I give you my heart. His heart leaped into his throat. Her heart missed a beat. You have my heartfelt thanks. Can you think of any more? Create a table list of 3-4 heart sayings on a separate sheet of paper. I guess that over the years people have noticed that when you have a powerful feeling like fear, anger or excitement, the heart beats faster and so maybe they thought that the heart was where all the strong feelings hang out. Dr Kim says "The changes in the heart and blood vessels which cause heart attacks in adults are now starting in many more children and young people. They won’t have a heart attack while they are kids, but some of the damage is done then. Keep your heart healthy by eating healthy food, exercising, getting plenty of sleep and having fun!"


4 Blood Pressure Sounds When blood pressure is measured, a cuff is inflated to constrict an artery so that no blood flows through. Since the pressure in the cuff is greater than the pressure in the artery, the artery is closed off and no blood flows through. As the cuff pressure is gradually released, but the artery is still partially constricted, blood flow resumes. Sounds can be heard with a stethoscope because the blood flows turbulently, causing audible sounds. When enough pressure is released to fully open the artery, the blood flows freely and the sounds disappear because smooth flowing blood does not create sounds. Checking Blood Pressure The first sounds that are heard indicate systolic pressure. When the sounds stop, diastolic pressure has been reached. Record your BP on the following page BLOOD PRESSURE= / ------ systolic/diastolic

5 BLOOD PRESSURE WORKSHEET Name: Per To: Physician/Clinic/Technician/Medical Facility/ Family member Please record the blood pressure and pulse after the examinee has been recumbent for at least 5 minutes and then after standing motionless for 3 minutes. A mercury sphygmomanometer or an automated BP device is to be used. The pulse and blood pressure should be taken twice daily (morning and afternoon) for three consecutive days.

6 Day 1 Date:______ 2 Date:______ 3 Date:______ Time____AM Recumbent BP Recumbent Pulse Standing BP Standing Pulse Time____PM Recumbent BP Recumbent Pulse Standing BP Standing Pulse

7 Blood Pressure Graph By taking your pulse, you can feel that blood pressure fluctuates with each heartbeat. The pulse which you feel is actually a pressure wave which travels from your heart throughout the arteries. We can use the graph created by this pressure wave to identify the component parts of blood pressure. Label the 2 important parts of this graph :


9 On the next page you will be asked to evaluate your heart rate. Disregard the 100 and 200 meters. Walking in place, walking in different areas of your house, around the block, to your friends with different pace and slow to moderate jogging are great ways to see the changes in your heart rate.


11 You can find extensive information on the heart and how it works at

12 aorta - the biggest and longest artery (a blood vessel carrying blood away from the heart) in the body. It carries oxygen-rich blood from the left ventricle of the heart to the body. inferior vena cava - a large vein (a blood vessel carrying blood to the heart) that carries oxygen-poor blood to the right atrium from the lower half of the body. left atrium - the left upper chamber of the heart. It receives oxygen-rich blood from the lungs via the pulmonary vein. left ventricle - the left lower chamber of the heart. It pumps the blood through the aortic valve into the aorta. mitral valve - the valve between the left atrium and the left ventricle. It prevents the back- flow of blood from the ventricle to the atrium. pulmonary artery - the blood vessel that carries oxygen-poor blood from the right ventricle of the heart to the lungs. pulmonary valve - the flaps between the right ventricle and the pulmonary artery. When the ventricle contracts, the valve opens, causing blood to rush into the pulmonary artery. When the ventricle relaxes, the valves close, preventing the back-flow of blood from the pulmonary artery to the right atrium. pulmonary vein - the blood vessel that carries oxygen-rich blood from the lungs to the left atrium of the heart. right atrium - the right upper chamber of the heart. It receives oxygen-poor blood from the body through the inferior vena cava and the superior vena cava. right ventricle - the right lower chamber of the heart. It pumps the blood into the pulmonary artery. septum - the muscular wall that separates the left and right sides of the heart. superior vena cava - a large vein that carries oxygen-poor blood to the right atrium from the upper parts of the body. tricuspid valve - the flaps between the right atrium and the right ventricle. It is composed of three leaf-like parts and prevents the back-flow of blood from the ventricle to the atrium.

20 Conditions and Diseases Of the heart, blood, blood vessels, and blood pressure What is cardiovascular disease? Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is not one single disease or condition. It is a group of different disorders that affect your heart and blood vessels. You are born with some types of cardiovascular diseases, and you develop others during your lifetime. What are the different risk factors?

22 What is a heart murmur? When your heart is working normally it sounds quiet and smooth.  It’s like a tap which is turned on enough for the water to flow quietly and smoothly. If you turn the tap onto full then the water becomes more turbulent (forceful) and the sound gets louder. A heart murmur in young children is when the heart beats quite fast and sounds louder. Usually this happens when the child is tired, unwell, or after exercise. The blood flow gets faster and noisier. This is not a health problem. A heart murmur can be a sign of a health problem when there is a hole between two parts of the heart and the blood is coming from two directions at once, mixing together and causing turbulence and you can hear it. This type of heart murmur may be a problem. It depends on how much blood is going in the wrong direction.  There may need to be an operation to block off the hole as the blood may not be able to pick up enough oxygen from the lungs to take it all round the body.  This can mean that kids get tired easily and may not be able to do sport or exercise. It can also mean that the body cannot grow tall and strong and the kid stays small and weak. If you have a heart murmur and the doctor doesn’t think that there is a problem then don’t worry about it. It shouldn’t stop you from doing anything. So, get out there and start joining in. Your heart needs the exercise.

26 Organ Donation Fact Sheet Every year, hundreds of lives are saved with the help of donated organs. 89,000 people are currently waiting for an organ; 17 people die each day while waiting. In addition to the heart, many other organs and tissues may be donated including skin, bone and cartilage, ligaments and tendons, bone marrow, cornea, kidney, liver, lung, small intestine and pancreas. Organ transplant recipients are selected based on the seriousness of their medical condition and compatible body size and blood chemistry. A person’s race, sex, or religion does not matter when finding a match. Organs must be removed from the donor within 8-16 hours after brain death. Brain death is when the brain permanently stops working. It is not the same thing as a coma. A person cannot recover from being brain dead. A doctor is required Funded by a Science Education Partnership Award from the National Center for Research Resources of the National Institutes of Health 2 to declare a person brain dead before any organs can be removed for transplantation. A transplanted heart may be preserved for 4-6 hours between donation and transplantation in the recipient. While most major religions support organ donation, some do not. You can read about how specific religions feel about organ donation at the following website:

27 I. Organ/ blood Donation - Your Opinions: This is an opportunity for you to state your opinion based on what you believe. Opinions are different from facts. While facts require evidence to back them up, opinions are based on values and beliefs (how you feel about an issue). For each of the statements below, decide whether you agree or disagree with the statement and then circle the word “agree” or “disagree,” depending upon your opinion. There is no right or wrong answer. 1) Being an organ/blood donor is a good way to help other people, even after you die. Agree/Disagree 2) If a person has agreed to be an organ/blood donor, doctors will not try as hard to save that person’s life if they are injured. Agree/Disagree 3) To have a proper burial, a person’s body needs to be buried intact (with all of their Organs/blood). Agree/Disagree 4) The people who should be first on the list to get an organ/blood transplant should be the people who are the sickest. Agree/Disagree 5) A person who is 80 years old should have the same chance of having a transplant as someone who is 8 years old. Agree/Disagree
