11 The Heartbeat The actions of the four heart chambers are coordinated. – systole– diastole– stethoscope– murmurTalking Points:Contraction occurs in systole; this is when blood is forced through the heart and circulatory system.Diastole is the period of rest between contractions; this is when the heart chambers refill with blood to be pushed through the heart again.What sounds are heard through a stethoscope when the heart beats? Lub-dub.Explain a murmur. When a valve of the heart does not completely close and blood continues to leak through it, a murmur is heard.
12 The Heartbeat Electrical properties of the heart – electrocardiogram Talking Points:The electrocardiograph gives a picture of the electrical activity of the heart.Figure 6.7 illustrates the normal heart beat with its 5 waves.The waves associated with a heart beat are labeled P, Q, R, S, and T.The P wave occurs when the atria contract; the QRS wave occurs when the ventricles contract.The T wave represents the repolarization (recovery) of the ventricles after contraction
13 Word Analysis and Definition Explain the difference between the following sets of terms:– atrial and ventricular– bradycardia and tachycardia– sinus rhythm and arrhythmia– systole and diastoleTalking Points:Students should be able to identify opposite meanings of terms.Explain the difference between the following terms:Atrial and ventricular: atrial is pertaining to atrium (where blood enters); ventricular is pertaining to ventricle (where blood is pumped out).The normal heartbeat is called sinus rhythm; arrhythmia is any abnormal cardiac rhythm.Bradycardia and tachycardia: bradycardia is heart rate below 60; tachycardia is heart rate above 100.Sinus rhythm and arrhythmia: sinus rhythm is normal heart rhythm; arrhythmia is an abnormal heart rhythm.Systole and diastole: systole means contraction; diastole means at rest.
14 Cardiovascular and Circulatory Systems Lesson 6.2: Disorders of the HeartTalking Points:By the end of lesson 6.2 the students will be able to use correct medical terminology to:• Name common cardiac arrhythmias.• Discuss common disorders of the heart and heart valves.• Describe coronary heart disease.• Explain hypertensive heart disease.6.2.5 Define the term cardiomyopathy14
15 Disorders of the Heart Abnormal heart rhythms – common arrhythmias 1. premature beats2. atrial fibrillation3. ventricular tachycardia4. ventricular arrhythmia5. heart block6. palpitationsTalking Points:Arrhythmias are abnormal or irregular heartbeats. There are six types of commonly seen arrhythmias.Premature beats are often associated with caffeine and stress; they feel like the heart skipped a beat.Atrial fibrillation occurs when the atria quiver and don’t contract. This can cause blood to clot and pool in the atrium and can cause paroxysmal atrial tachycardia, which is a period of rapid, but regular, beats.Ventricular tachycardia is a rapid heartbeat arising in the ventricles.Ventricular arrhythmia is irregular heart rate of the ventricles.Heart block is an interference in the electrical conduction system of the heart, causing no coordination between the atria and ventricular contractions.Palpitations are uncomfortable sensations of rapid, irregular heart beats.
17 Word Analysis and Definition Give the term based on the provided definition:– unpleasant sensations of a rapid beat of the heartpalpitation– restoration of a normal heart rhythm byelectric shock.cardioversion– uncontrolled quivering of the heart musclefibrillationTalking Points:Students must be able to give a term when given a definition.Forced rapid beat of the heart is a palpitation.Restoration of a normal heart rhythm by electric shock is cardioversion.The device used to generate electric shock is called a cardioverter.Uncontrolled quivering of the heart is known as fibrillation.
18 Abbreviations Define the following abbreviations: – AED – ICD – PVC – A-fib– V-fib– V-tachTalking Points:Students must understand abbreviations and be able to define the terms.Define the following abbreviations:AED—automatic external defibrillatorICD—implantable cardioverter/defibrillatorPVC—premature ventricular contractionA-fib—atrial fibrillationV-fib—ventricular fibrillationV-tach—ventricular tachycardia
19 Disorders of the Heart Disorders of the heart valves – heart valve malfunction1. stenosis2. incompetenceTalking Points:Use Figure 6.9 to refamiliarize the students with the locations of the heart valves.Describe the difference between stenosis and incompetence.Stenosis is when valve does not open fully and the opening is constricted; incompetence is when valve does not close fully and blood can regurgitate, flow backward through the valve.Aortic valve stenosis is common in what age population? The elderly.Mitral valve stenosis and incompetence lead eventually to what? Chronic heart failure.
20 Disorders of the Heart Disorders of the heart – artificial heart valves1. prosthetic2. tissueTalking Points:If a valve requires replacement, there are two types available:mechanical or prosthetic valves made from alloys and plastics; tissue valves from pig, cow; or human heartsOptional detail:Rheumatic fever, usually in childhood, can be a factor in causing the heart valves eventually to fail, thereby requiring a valve replacement.
21 Disorders of the Heart Disorders of the heart wall 1. endocarditis 2. myocarditis3. pericarditis4. cardiomyopathy5. cor pulmonaleTalking Points:What population is at risk for developing endocarditis? IV drug abusers and people with damaged heart valvesMyocarditis is an inflammation of the heart muscle itself.Pericarditis interferes with which activity of the heart? The ability of the heart to fully contract.Define cardiomyopathy. A weakening of the heart muscle so that it pumps ineffectively. Can occur in young people.Cor pulmonale is a failure of which ventricle to pump properly? The right ventricle.
22 Word Analysis and Definition What relationship do the following sets of terms have?– pericarditis and tamponade– incompetence, insufficiency, andregurgitateTalking Points:Students should be able to make an association between the terms given in the slide if they know their definitions.What do the following terms have in common?Pericarditis causes an accumulation of fluid to amass between the heart and its outer lining.The fluid causes the heart to be compressed against the fluid-filled sac, causing tamponade, when the heart muscle cannot contract and expand normally and cardiac output falls.Incompetence, insufficiency, and regurgitate. Incompetence and insufficiency all describe a valve that does not completely close, allowing blood to flow back or regurgitate into the heart chamber from where it came from.
23 Disorders of the Heart Disorders of the heart – coronary artery disease1. angina pectoris2. myocardial infarction3. cardiogenic shock4. cardiac arrestTalking Points:Arteries become narrowed by plaque deposits called atheroma.Use Figure 6.10 to illustrate a normal artery and one with plaque deposits.When plaque builds up inside an arterial wall, blood flow is reduced.Narrowing of the coronary arteries means reduced blood flow to the heart muscle.Angina pectoris, chest pain on exertion, is usually the first symptom of reduced oxygen supply and blood flow to the myocardium.What is a myocardial infarction? Death of heart tissue.What are the symptoms of cardiogenic shock? Weak, rapid pulse and decreased blood pressure in a patient who is pale, cold, sweaty, and anxious.Asystole (flat line on an ECG) indicates the heart is in cardiac arrest (no electrical or contraction activity).
24 Disorders of the Heart Disorders of the heart – coronary artery disease1. risk factors – heredity, age, obesity, lack of exercise, tobacco, diabetes, stress, high blood pressureKEYNOTE: All these risk factors, except heredity and age, can be reduced by changes in lifestyle.Talking Points:Have students list the risk factors for coronary artery disease.They include: heredity, age, obesity, lack of exercise, tobacco, diabetes mellitus, stress, high blood pressure, and elevated serum cholesterol.All of the risk factors identified for developing CAD, except heredity and age, can be reduced by lifestyle changes.Ask students to name lifestyle changes that can reduce the risk of CAD.

27 Disorders of the Heart Disorders of the heart – hypertensive heart disease– congestive heart failure– congenital heart diseaseTalking Points:Hypertension effects about 20% of the adult population.There are 4 types of hypertension:primary or essential hypertension—risk factors are unknownsecondary hypertension, which results from other diseases such as kidney disease and hyperthyroidismmalignant hypertension, which is a sudden and rapid onset of a life-threatening hypertension, occurs in younger adults, is often associated with kidney disease; it also occurs in women with toxemia of pregnancy.prehypertension, which is defined as systolic pressure below 139 and a diastolic between 80 and 90What is congestive heart failure? The inability of the heart to supply enough cardiac output to meet the body’s metabolic needs.Congenital heart disease, present at birth, is the result of an abnormal development of the heart in the fetus.
28 Disorders of the Heart • Congenital heart disease 1. atrial septal defect2. ventricular septal defect3. patent ductus arteriosus4. coarctation of the aorta5. tetralogy of FallotTalking Points:In an atrial septal defect, blood flows from the left atrium to the right atrium.In a ventricular septal defect, blood flows from which ventricle to which ventricle? From the left ventricle to the right ventricle.Use Figure 6.12 to illustrate ASD and VSDWhen the ductus arteriosus does not close after birth, what organs can become damaged? The lungs.Describe coarctation of the aorta. Narrowing of the aorta in its arch.The four congenital defects found in the Tetralogy of Fallot can all be surgically repaired.
29 Word Analysis and Definition Identify the word elements and define the following terms:– hypertension– hypotension– prehypertensionTalking Points:The common root of the following three terms is tens-, meaning pressure.

31 Cardiologic Investigations and Procedures Blood tests– lipid profile• cholesterol• lipoprotein (HDL and LDL)• triglyceridesTalking Points:A lipid profile helps determine the risk of CAD and comprises:• total cholesterol• high-density lipoprotein (HDL) (“good cholesterol”)• low-density lipoprotein (LDL) (“bad cholesterol”)• triglycerides
32 Cardiologic Investigations and Procedures Diagnostic testselectrocardiogram (ECG or EKG)cardiac stress testingechocardiographyHolter monitorambulatory blood pressure monitormagnetic resonance imaging (MRI)cardiac catheterizationcoronary angiogramTalking Points:An electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG) is a paper record of the electrical signals of the heart.Cardiac stress testing is an exercise tolerance test to raise the heart rate and monitor its effect on cardiac function.Echocardiography uses ultrasound waves to study cardiac function.A Holter monitor is a continuous ECG recorded on a tape-recorder cassette as a person works, plays, and rests during a 24 hour period.An ambulatory blood pressure monitor provides a record of blood pressure over a 24-hour period as a person goes about his or her daily activities.Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI ) can produce detailed images of the heart and identify sections of cardiac muscle that are not receiving an adequate blood supply.Cardiac catheterization detects patterns of pressures and blood flows in the heart. A thin tube is threaded into the heart under x-ray guidance after being inserted into a vein or an artery.A coronary angiogram uses a contrast dye injected during cardiac catheterization to identify coronary artery blockages.32
33 Cardiologic Investigations and Procedures Treatment procedures– thrombolysis– percutaneous transluminal coronaryangioplasty– stent placement– coronary artery bypass surgeryTalking Points:Thrombolysis of a clot involves injecting a medication designed to dissolve a clot in a blocked vessel so that the blocked blood vessel can reopen.Percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) is a procedure in which a balloon is used to open a plaque-filled vessel by compressing the plaque against the vessel wall and restoring blood flow through the vessel.A stent is a device used to prop open and keep open a narrowed blood vessel.Coronary artery bypass surgery (CABG) surgery is a procedure in which a blocked vessel is bypassed by using a healthy blood vessel harvested from the leg, arm or chest.33
34 Cardiologic Investigations and Procedures Treatment procedures– cardioversion– defibrillation– heart transplantTalking Points:Cardioversion involves converting a cardiac arrhythmia into a normal rhythm by an electric shock to the heart from a defibrillator.In defibrillation atrial or ventricular fibrillation is terminated and normal rhythm restored by delivery of an electric shock to the heart.Tissue matching must be performed before a heart transplant to decrease the likelihood of a rejection reaction.
