Where does the heart pump oxygenated blood to
The Body
1 of 19
Where does the heart pump deoxygenated blood to
The lungs
2 of 19
In the heart, what is there for each curculation
One ventricle and one atrium
3 of 19
Where is the right atrium and what is the blood
Upper chamber of the right side of the heart, low in oxygen
4 of 19
Where does the blood go after the right atrium
Right ventricle, to be pumped through the pulmonary artery to the lungs to be oxygenated
5 of 19
What goes into the left atrium
Newly oxygenated blood
6 of 19
What is the left ventricle and where does it send the blood
Strong, rest of the body
7 of 19
Where does the sound of the heart beat come from
Closure of the valves of the heart
8 of 19
What generated the first sound
Closure of the bicuspid valve when the heart contracts
9 of 19
What generates the second sound
Closure of the aortic valve when the heart relaxes
10 of 19
What is the name for the human circulatory system and why is it called that
Double circulatory, blood passes through heart twice
11 of 19
What is the first circulation
Blood travelling from heart to lungs and back
12 of 19
what is the second circulation
Blood travelling from heart to the rest of the body and back
13 of 19
Why is the left ventricle thicker than the right
Left ventricle needs to create higher pressure as it pumps blood further
14 of 19
What is the structure of an artery
Most have no valves, thicker walls, more elastic, narrow lumens
15 of 19
What is the structure of a vein
Most have valves, thinner walls, less elastic, wider lumens
16 of 19
What is the function of an artery
Carry blood away from the heart, carry oxygenated blood. help to maintain blood pressure
17 of 19
What is the function of a vein
Carry blood to heart, carry deoxygenated blood
18 of 19
What do arteries have to withstand
Higher pressure
