A Chabner CH11

A Chabner 11

A blood vessel that carries oxygen-poor blood from heart to lungs. Pulmonary artery
Contraction phase of the heartbeat systole
Located between the left upper and lower chambers of the heart. Mitral valve
Saclike membrane surrounding the heart pericardium
Sensitive tissue in the right atrium wall that begins the heartbeat sinoatrial node
Blood vessels branching from the aorta to carry oxygen-rich blood to the heart muscle coronary arteries
Disease of heart muscle cardiomyopathy
Inflammation of a vein Phlebitis
Instrument to measure blood pressure sphygmomanometer
A local widening of an artery aneurysm
Bluish coloration of the skin Cyanosis
Can lead to myocardial infarction. Blood is held back from an area. Can be caused by thrombotic occlusion of a blood vessel. May be a result of coronary artery disease. Ischemia
Chest pain relieved with nitroglycerin. Angina
Cardiac arrhythmia fibrillation
Petechiae small, pinpoint hemorrahages
Click-murmur syndrome mitral valve prolapse
Four separate congenital heart defects tetralogy of Fallot
Patent means open
The cause of essential hypertension is idiopathic
Digitalis drug used to strengthen the heartbeat
CK, LD, and AST (SGOT) are serum enzymes
ECHO high frequency sound waves are transmitted into the chest
Incision of a vein phlebotomy
Removal of plaque from an artery endarterectomy
A Holter monitor is An EKG taken during daily activity
The pacemaker of the heart is the sinoatrial node
The sac-like membrane surrounding the heart is the pericardium
The contractive phase of the heartbeat is called systole
The relaxation phase of the heartbeat is called diastole
Abnormal heart sound caused by improper closure of heart valves is murmur
Hardening of arteries arteriosclerosis
Enlargement of the heart cardiamegaly
Inflammation of a vein with a clot thrombophlebitis
Disease condition of heart muscle cardiomyopathy
Condition of rapid heart beat tachycardia
Smallest blood vessel capillary
Largest artery in the body aorta
lower chamber of the heart ventricle
Carries blood from the lungs to the heart pulmonary vein
Brings blood to heart from upper parts of the body superior vena cava
Upper chamber of the heart atrium
Valve between the left atrium and ventricle mitral valve
Carries blood to the lungs from the heart pulmonary artery
Small artery arteriole
Valve between the right atrium and ventricle tricuspid valve
Bluish coloration of the skin cyanosis
Suture (repair) of an aneurysm aneurysmorrhaphy
Failure of condiction of impulses from the AV node to bundle of His heart block
Blood is held back from tissues ischemia
Mass of plaque (cholesterol) atheroma
Narrowing of a vessel vasoconstriction
Dead tissue in heart muscle myocardial infarction
Chest pain angina
Blockage of a vessel due to a clot thrombotic occlusion
High density lipoproteins HDL
Treatment to dissolve clots in blood vessels thrombolytic theraphy
Tube is introduced into a vessel and guided into the heart to detect pressures and blood flow cardiac catheterization
Sinoatrial node (pacemaker) SA node
Electrocardiogram ECG
