CIRCULATORY SYSTEM
CIRCULATORY SYSTEM (A) FORMATION OF TISSUE FLUID AND EXCHANGE OF MATERIALS IN THE CAPILLARY NETWORK In a capillary network, two opposing forces mainly determine the movement of fluid between the blood and tissue fluid: (1) the hydrostatic pressure difference and (2) the osmotic potential difference between the blood and the tissue fluid. In the part of the capillary network near the arterial end, blood pressure is much higher than that of the tissue fluid so that the difference in hydrostatic p
Coronary Heart disease
Coronary Heart disease
Coronary Heart disease. Any heart disorder due to a restricted supply of blood to the heart muscle is called coronary heart disease. The most common symptom of heart disease is angina pain, which is when you get gripping pains in your left arms and around the chest area. A heart attack usually occurs quite suddenly, with either little or no warning. Chest pain may be a bit like that of angina but it is usually more severe and not necessarily brought on by exertion or relieved by rest. The patie

It is the most common cause of disability in the elderly. “More than 75 percent of patients with congestive heart failure are over the age of 65 years” (Porth, 2004, p. 337).

The Workings and Structure of the Heart Introduction For homeostasis to remain balanced throughout the body millions of respiring cells need to discard carbon dioxide and waste products and also replenish with oxygen and nutrients. For this transaction to occur a complex transportation network called the cardiovascular system initiates. The cardiovascular system consists of the heart, arteries and veins. The heart is a double pumping organ which is the driving force of the cardiovascular system,

The apex of the heart is tilted obliquely and pointed towards the left hip and it rests on the diaphragm at approximately at the level of the fifth intercostal space, which is about the nipple line (Marieb 309). The heart weighs around 300 grams (10 oz.) in an adult. The heart is near the middle of the thoracic cavity in the mediastinum, w

When coming across this project, I though it interesting to figure out what the difference in pulse rate was between athletes and non-athletes. The purpose of my experiment is to figure out whether or not, after strenuous exercise, the pulse rates stabilize faster in athletes than non-athletes.

The effects of smoking on the body Although tobacco has been accessible worldwide for centuries, the popularity of the intoxicating substance began in England around the late nineteenth century with the introduction of manufactured cigarettes. Until this time smoking was a male orientated pastime. A change in democracy enabled the newly emancipated women to take up the trend of smoking which enraged society as women used cigarettes as a fashion statement. The attraction of smoking rocketed throu

Located in the thorax, it lies left of the body's midline, above and in contact with the diaphragm. It is situated immediately behind the breastbone, or sternum, and between the lungs, with its apex tilted to the body cavity's left side. In most people the apex can be felt during each heart contraction. At rest, the heart pumps about 59 cc (2 oz) of blood per beat and 5 l (5 qt) pe

Honey Bees are the highest form of insect life(1) and live in a well organized colony that does not need to hibernate(8). They produce honey and store it in wax comb and use the same hive from one year to the next. One hive contains 35,000 to 50,000 bees.

Marfans Syndrome
Marfans Syndrome Marfan syndrome is a rare hereditary disorder of connective tissue, which causes connective tissue to be weaker than normal. Connective tissue is the most abundant tissue in the body. It supports and protects various other tissues, is a vital component of all organs in the body, and provides strength and elasticity to blood vessels. Therefore, a disorder of connective tissue can cause a variety of abnormal conditions. For people with the Marfan syndrome, weak connective tissue

What a lot of people are not realizing is that coronary heart disease actually accounts for about 80% of all sudden deaths. In fact, the number of deaths from heart disease approximately equals to the number of deaths from cancer, accidents, chronic lung disease, pneumonia and influenza, and others, COMBINED.. (Smith, 117) One of the symptoms of coronary heart disease is angina pectoris. Unfortunately

Arterial aneurysms are sacs formed by distention of the artery wall, they are life threatening as they can rupture due to a positive feedback in the relationship that described the stress in the wall of an artery. The blowout of an aneurysm can lead to certain death as blood gets lost, mostly internally, in a rapid fashion. There is a great medical need for an intervention that can be used in an emergency situation in order to allow for enough time to perform a more involved surgery. Previous w

Ernest Hemingway was a man of intrigue. To learn of his intellect, talent and skill, you must read his novels, but to learn about his life and adventures you must probe further. Some of his novels were about his life, but they do not tell all of the story. He went from almost losing his life several times, to being involved in bull fighting, to moving all around the world and being married four times. He was a lover, fighter and great writer.

The Human Heart Biology - Histology Abstract: Dorland's Illustrated Medical Dictionary defines the heart as the viscus of cardiac muscle that maintains the circulation of the blood. It is divided into four cavities; two atria and two ventricles. The left atrium receives oxygenated blood from the lungs. From there the blood passes to the left ventricle, which forces it via the aorta, through the arteries to supply the tissues of the body. The right atrium receives the blood after it has passed

The Heart
The Heart
The Heart Introduction You need your heart for all your body needs. It pumps about 2000 gallons of blood a day. It takes about 20 seconds for blood to reach every cell in the body. An artery carries blood out from the heart. A vein carries blood back to the heart. An average adult heart weighs about 10-13 ounces (300 to 350 grams). The rate which the heart pumps varies depending on what your doing. When at rest the heart pumps more slowly. When you run the heart rate increases to provide muscles

The Circulatory System The circulatory system in anatomy and physiology is the course taken by the blood through the arteries, capillaries, and veins and back to the heart. In humans and the higher vertebrates, the heart is made up of four chambers the right and left auricles, or atria, and the right and left ventricles. The right side of the heart pumps oxygen-poor blood from the cells of the body back to the lungs for new oxygen; the left side of the heart receives blood rich in oxygen from th

The domesticated dog has coexisted with human beings as a working partner and household pet in all eras and cultures since the days of the cave dwellers. It is generally believed that the direct ancestor of the domestic dog is the wolf, originally found throughout Europe, Asia, and North America. Remains of a dog, estimated to be 10,500 years old, have been found in Idaho. TAXONOMY Kingdom: Animalia Phy

In response our body has a system that carries out respiration which is the distrubition of oxygen to the blood and the disposal of the waste product carbon dioxide. In the human breathing process the first step is the breath in. First we open the mouth and expand our lungs to bring in air. The first place the air travles into our mouths which is an opening in the human body used for taking in air, food, and the

The bullfighter, called a matador, faces the bull in a large dirt-filled arena that is usually surrounded by spectators. Aided by a group of apprentices, called the cuadrilla, the matador goads the bull into charging at him. A bullfight usually features three matadors, each of whom fights two bulls. The bulls are of a distinctly savage breed especially trained to attack humans. A bull
