Where do biochemical changes occur during aerobic respiration?
5 of 103
Examples of where ATP is used for life
muscle contraction, swimming of sperm, nerve impulse transmission, seperation of chromosomes during nuclear division, active transport, uptake and loss of ions and other particles.
6 of 103
The Breakdown of ATP
ATP (energy for chamicalo change) into ADP into AMP (messanger molecule).
7 of 103
The Production of ATP
a hormone triggers the production of cyclic AMP. Cyclic AMP activates enzymes associated with biochemical pathways associated with said hormone. As a result hormonally controlled changes happen in the body.
8 of 103
What Happens During Anerobic Respiration? (Changes in the body)
Heart and ventilation rate increase to meet the demand of oxygen. Muscles generate heat. Acidity and temperature in the muscles increase to encourage oxygen release from oxyhaemoglobin.
9 of 103
Oxygen Debt
oxygen is needed to oxidse lactic acid formed during exercise.

The Structure of the Heart
Four muscular chambers, two atria and two ventricles. Blood passes from the right atrium the the right ventricle (for both sides). The artium and ventricles are seperated by a atrioventricular valve.

lumen and endothemium
20 of 103
Features of Arteries
Surrounded by tissues and organs to confine them and prevent them from being over-inflated. Have thick muscular walls, only carry oxygenated blood. Blood is at a high pressure.
21 of 103
Features of Veins
Usually carries deoxygenated blood, some contain valves to prevent back-flow. Blood is under very low pressure.
22 of 103
Features of Capillaries
Small, tubular structures that are one cell thick, with space between the cells making them 'leaky'. Where solutes 'get on' and 'get off' the transport system. They are found in organs and tissues, and are under pressure.
23 of 103
The Cardiac Cycle
SAN causes the atria to contract. The wave f excitement passes to the ventricles after a 0.1 sec. delay. It passes to the purkinje fibres and travels to the heart's apex causing the ventricles to contract from the apex upwards.
24 of 103
What can Cause the Rhythm of the Heart to Change
physical activity, being scared/ startled, nervousness or hormones etc.
25 of 103
Cardiac Output Equasion
cardiac output = heart rate x stroke volume (volume per unit time)
26 of 103
Nerves that Send Impulses to the Heart
parasympathetic nerve and the sympathetic nerve
27 of 103
Parasympathetic Nerve
delivers messages to the SAN, slows down the heart
28 of 103
Sympathetic Nerve
delvers messages to many areas of the heart walls, speeds up the heart

by increasing the rate and strength of the heart beat (in particular ventricular constricltion
39 of 103

40 of 103
capillaries decrease in volume (when cold) as to retain heat
41 of 103
Structure of the ventilation System
Air enters through the mouth and nose, through the trachea where it divides to from two bronchi (left and right). Each bronchus divides into smaller branches called bronchioles which narrow into alvioli.
42 of 103
Function of Cartilage in the Trachea
to prevent collapse but retain flexability
43 of 103
Purpose of Goblet Cells
Found in the airways of the ventilation system. Secrete mucus which is moved up and out by rhythmic movemnets of the cilia. which is brough to the back of the trout to be swallowed.
44 of 103
What Happens to the Chest During Inhalation

45 of 103
What Happens to the Chest During Exhalation

48 of 103
Features of the Lung System

49 of 103
Transport of Oxygen
haemoglobin combines with 4 molecules of oxygen to form oxyhaemoglobin (a reversable reaction)
50 of 103
Transport of Nutrients
Blood glucose, amino acids, fatty acids and gycerol are added to the bloodstream by diffusion (facilitated or active transport) from the small intestine after a meal. Nutrients travel to their point of use in the blood plasma.
51 of 103
Transport of Carbon Dioxide
transported in three different ways: 5% dissolves into plasma, 10% leaves the plasmato combine with haemoglobin to form carbaminohaemoglobin, 85% diffuses into red blood cells whereto combines with water to form carbonic acid.

Heat Exhaustion
Can result from any activity that casuse extreme sweating, the body loses water, sodium and chloride ions. If they are not replaced this can lead to vomiting, nausea, headaches and tachycardia (common in long-distance runners).
