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,

“Hoppy” Heart Homework Assignment P-2 Class 17 EMSM 250 5/19/03 The human heart is a hollow, cone shaped organ that is relatively the size of a person’s fist. 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

title Period 6 Science Fair Research Title: ? I have chosen to do this project because, as an athlete myself, I have wondered what affects pulse rate. 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. Pulse Rate The pulse rate is the number of times a pe

HEART The human heart is a specialized, four-chambered muscle that maintains BLOOD flow in the CIRCULATORY SYSTEM. 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

Chapter 19 Summary The heart is no more than the transport system pump. The heart is about the size of a persons fist, weighs between 250 and 350 grams. The heart is enclosed within the mediastinum, extends about 5 inches from the second rib to the fifth intercostal space distally, site where its apex contacts the chest wall is referred to as the point of maximal intensity (PMI). The heart is enclosed in a double-walled fibrosis sac called the pericardium. The loosely fitting superficial part o

Compare and contrast the cardiovascular responses to exercise in a normal individual with an individual who has had a heart transplant. The cardiovascular system consists of a pump (the heart) and a series of tubes that enable the collection and distribution of blood to groups of thin vessels where exchange may occur with the nearby tissues. This continuous circulation is required to deliver nutrients, oxygen and other vital items to tissues around the body that need them. As well as this, unwa

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 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 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

Development of the Human Zygote November 16, 1995 Hundreds of thousands of times a year a single-celled zygote, smaller than a grain of sand, transforms into an amazingly complex network of cells, a newborn infant. Through cellular differentiation and growth, this process is completed with precision time and time again, but very rarely a mistake in the blueprint of growth and development does occur. Following is a description of how the pathways of this intricate web are followed and the mista
