3 Layers of the Heart Wall The wall of the heart consists of three layers: the epicardium (external layer), the myocardium (middle layer) and the endocardium (inner layer). The epicardium is the thin, transparent outer layer of the wall and is composed of delicate connective tissue. The myocardium, comprised of cardiac muscle tissue, makes up the majority of the cardiac wall and is responsible for its pumping action. The thickness of the myocardium mirrors the load to which each specific region of the heart is subjected. The endocardium is a thin layer of endothelium overlying a thin layer of connective tissue. It provides a smooth lining for the chambers of the heart and covers the valves. The endocardium is continuous with the endothelial lining of the large blood vessels attachedCardiac MuscleCardiac muscle fibers are shorter in length and larger in diameter than skeletal muscle fibers.Cardiac muscle fibers have actin and myosin filaments arranged in the same way as skeletal muscle, but usually only one nuclei.In contrast to skeletal muscle, cardiac muscle does not fatigue, cannot be repaired when damaged and is regulated by the autonomic nervous system.Gap junctions between the fibers allow ions to travel between cells to permit the rapid fire of action potentials.Excitement of a single fiber results in stimulation of all the other fibers in the network (ALL OR NONE) . As a result, each network contracts as a functional unit.
5 Smooth MuscleArteries have smooth muscle that functions to regulate the flow of blood through the artery.Contraction of the smooth muscle decreases the internal diameter of the vessel in a process called vasoconstriction.Relaxation of the smooth muscle increases the internal diameter in a process called vasodilation.

8 Skeletal Muscle.Veins pass between skeletal muscles. The contraction of skeletal muscle squeezes the vein.Repeated cycles of contraction and relaxation of skeletal muscle, as occurs in the leg muscles while walking, helps facility blood back to the heart.

11 Position and Shape of the Heart. The heart is located in the thoracic cavity in between the lungs, 60% of it lying to the left of the median plane.The heart is cone-shaped, with a broad base at the top from which the large blood vessels enter and exit.The tip, known as the apex, points downwards and lies close to the sternum.
12 PericardiumA membrane that surrounds and protects the heart. It is composed of two layers containing a small volume of fluid which serves as a lubricant, facilitating the movement of the heart by minimizing friction.The inner layer is firmly attached to the heart wall and is known as the visceral layer or epicardium.The outer layer is composed of relatively inelastic connective tissue and is termed the parietal layer.
13 Layers of the Heart Wall The wall of the heart consists of three layers:epicardium (external layer), is the thin, transparent outer layer of the wall and is composed of delicate connective tissue.myocardium (middle layer), comprised of cardiac muscle tissue, makes up the majority of the cardiac wall and is responsible for its pumping action. The specific regions dictates the thickness of the myocardium.endocardium (inner layer). is a thin layer of endothelium. It provides a smooth lining for the chambers of the heart and covers the valves. It is continuous with the endothelial lining of the large blood vessels attached to the heart
14 Fibrous SkeletonIn addition to cardiac muscle tissue, the heart wall also contains dense connective tissues that:forms the fibrous skeleton of the heart.forms rings that surround the four heart orifices.The skeleton performs several functions:It serves as a point of attachment for the heart valves.It prevents the valves from overstretching as blood passes through them.It acts as an electrical insulator thereby preventing the direct spread of action potentials from the atria to the ventricles.
15 Chambers of the HeartThe heart contains four chambers where the thickness of the myocardium of the chambers varies according to its function.The two upper chambers are the atria. The atria are thin-walled because they deliver blood into the adjacent ventricles. On the upper surface of each atrium is a pouch-like appendage which is thought to increase the capacity of the atrium slightly.The two lower chambers are the ventricles. The ventricles are equipped with thick muscular walls because they pump blood over greater distances.
16 VentriclesThe right and left ventricles act as two separate pumps that simultaneously eject equal volumes of blood. The right ventricle only pumps blood into the lungs, which are close by and present little resistance to blood flow so work load is less.On the other hand, the left ventricle pumps blood to the rest of the body, where the resistance to blood flow is considerably higher. Therefore, the left ventricle works harder than the right ventricle to maintain the same blood flow rate. Consequently, the left ventricle is significantly thicker than that of the right.
17 Right Atrium (RA)The right atrium forms the section of the base of the heart and receives blood from the superior vena cava, inferior vena cava and coronary sinus.Blood flows from the right atrium to the right ventricle through the tricuspid valve (also know as the right atrioventricular valve).The right atrium also houses the sinoatrial node.
18 Right Ventricle (RV)The right ventricle forms most of the anterior surface of the heart and is crescent-shaped in cross-section.The tricuspid valve provides the means for blood to leave the RA and move into the RVThe right ventricle is separated from the left by a partition called the interventricular septum.Deoxygenated blood passes from the right ventricle through the pulmonary semi-lunar valve to the pulmonary trunk, which conveys the blood to the lungs.
19 Left Atrium (LA)The left atrium forms the section of the base of the heart and is similar to the right atrium in structure and shape.It receives oxygenated blood from the lungs via the pulmonary veins.Blood passes from the left atrium to the left ventricle through the bicuspid or mitral valve.The left atrium lies under the tracheal bifurcation and enlargement of this area of the heart can cause breathing difficulties.
20 Left Ventricle (LV)The left ventricle forms the apex of the heart and is conical in shape.Blood passes from the left ventricle to the ascending aorta through the aortic valve.From here some of the blood flows into the coronary arteries, which branch from the ascending aorta and carry blood to the heart wall.The remainder of the blood travels throughout the body.
28 Varicose VeinsNormally, one-way valves in the veins keep blood flowing from your legs up toward your heart.Varicose veins are caused by weakened valves in the veins in your legs.When these valves do not work as they should, blood collects in your legs, and pressure builds up.
29 Varicose Veins www.sirweb.org/news/videoClips.shtml As pressure builds in the veins, the walls of the veins become weak, dilated, and twisted.Venous return is slowed, causing blood to become sluggish.
30 Causes of Varicose Veins Varicose veins often run in families.Aging increases your risk.Increased pressure on leg veins fromBeing overweightPregnancyOr having a job where you must stand for long periods of time.

36 The FlowBlood vessels move blood from the heart to the lungs to pick up oxygen and deliver this oxygen to all of the tissues of the body.Arteries flow away from the heart and branch into smaller vessels called arterioles.Arterioles lead into the capillary beds, thin nets of vessels where gas exchange occurs.Blood then converges back into small veins called venules and eventually back into the major veins to be returned to the heart.Vessel size varies dramatically along this path.

40 The aorta is the largest artery in the body about the diameter of a garden hose. The capillaries, on the other hand, are so tiny that about ten of them would be as thick as one of the hairs on our head.The structure of blood vessels relates directly to their particular function and to the amount of pressure exerted on the vessel walls.
47 Cardiac OutputCardiac Output is a measure of how much blood the heart can pump in one minute by the ventricles.Cardiac Output (ml/min) = Stroke Volume (75ml/beat) X Heart Rate (BPM)

49 Essential Question9. What is cardiac output? 10. How does cardiac output help assess overall heart health? 11. How does an increased or decreased cardiac output impact the body?
50 Changes in cardiac output often signal diseases of the heart and these changes can impact the function of other body systems.Increased blood pressure in vessels can indicate possible blockages, and these blockages can interrupt blood flow to an organ or limbIncreased BP decreases Cardiac Output in a diseased heart

52 Essential Question 12. What is blood pressure? 13. How can the measurement of blood pressure in the legs be used to assess circulation?
53 Blood PressureWhen your heart beats, the contraction forces blood through the arteries to the rest of your body. This pressure created on the arteries is called systolic blood pressure, and measured in (mm Hg)A normal systolic blood pressure is below 120.The diastolic blood pressure number or the bottom number indicates the pressure in the arteries when the heart rests between beats.A normal diastolic blood pressure number is less than 80.
55 Part III- Take ABI measurements Complete Part I and share your findings with class before receiving part II Part II-Draw a feedback loop to show the body responds to an increase in BPPart III- Take ABI measurements
56 Example of BP feedback loop In the example to the right blood pressure has increased. Receptors in the carotid arteries detect the change in blood pressure and send a message to the brain. The brain will cause the heart to beat slower and thus decrease the blood pressure. Decreasing heart rate has a negative effect on blood pressure.
57 FYI Renin-Angiotensin-Aldosterone System Decreased blood volume or blood pressure stimulates the release of Renin that starts the processThe glomulerus, a bundle of capillary blood vessels found in the kidney, senses a drop in blood flow or a drop in sodium and secretes an enzyme called renin into the bloodstream.Renin moves to the liver where it converts the inactive peptide angiotensiongen to angiotensin I.Angiotensin I travels to the lungs where another enzyme converts it to angiotensin II.Angiotensin II makes its way to the adrenal glands at the top of the kidneys where it stimulates the production of aldosterone.Aldosterone helps the kidneys conserve sodium and water, leading to increased fluid volume and sodium levels.NOTE: If blood flow to the kidneys or the amount of sodium increases, less renin is produced in an attempt to normalize blood pressure.Animation:
58 Ankle Brachial Index (ABI) A test done by measuring blood pressure at the ankle and in the arm while a person is at rest.Measurements are usually repeated at both sites after 5 minutes of walking on a treadmill.A slight drop in the ABI with exercise, even if you have a normal ABI at rest, means that you probably have PAD.

61 Essential Question1. What is the connection between power and movement in the body?ATP
62 Recall how the body generates ATP. Food (primarily glucose) and oxygen are both vital to the assembly of ATPATP is always stored in the body but the amount in the body can only last 2 or 3 seconds. When it is used it is broken down from one adenozine and three phosphate molecules into adenzine diphosphate (2 phosphate molecules) and a separate phosphate molecule. This reaction is exothermic and produces energy.There are three main ways it can be resynthesised and these are by using the phospho-creatine system, the lactic system and the aerobic system.Aerobic resipration is much more complicated as oxygen is present. It starts the same way as lactic respiration but as oxygen is present, there is no lactic acid formed, instead pyruvic acid is converted into acetyle CoA by the enzyme coenzyme A. The acetyle CoA is then converted into citric acid by oxaloacetic acid. The citric acid then goes through something called the Krebs cycle where everything produced in respiration except the energy is removed. This leaves 2 ATP molecules. The hydrogen removed from the reaction then is converted using something called an electron transfer chain into 34 ATP molecules and water.
63 Essential Question2. How does the body maintain a supply a ATP during exercise?Exercise requires the coordinated effort of many human body systems includingnervous system,muscular system,skeletal system,cardiovascular system,respiratory system.
