SLS Biology 12 Circularity System

anterior vena cava Vein that delivers deoxygenated blood to the heart from the lower half of the body.
antigen Biggest artery in the body that delivers oxygenated blood to the whole body. Is attached to the left ventricle through the bicuspid semilunar valves
aorta the largest vein in the body. carries blood away from the heart (artery) to the rest of the body.
arterial duct/atrioventricular valve Also called AV valve. Determines when blood pours from the atrium into the ventricle. This action is responsible for the heart beat. When the ventricle is pumping blood out these valves slam shut
autonomic nervous system
atrioventricular (AV) node
blood pressure
blood velocity
blood vessel thin blood vessels that form networks (capillaries).
capillary-tissue fluid exchange transfer materials across their thin walls. vessels transport oxygen out into the body, the tissue, and receive carbon dioxide
carotid artery
chordae tendineae
coronary artery
coronary vein
diastolic pressure
fetal circulation
heart rate
hepatic portal vein
hepatic vein
hyper tension
iliac artery
iliac vein
jugular vein
left atrium upper left part of the heart that is filled up with blood from the lungs and transports it down to the left ventricle
left ventricle receives blood from the left atrium, that is then pumped out to supply the body with oxygen.
lymph capillaries
lymph node
lymphatic system
lymphatic veins
mesenteric artery
oval opening
posterior vena cava carries de-oxygenated blood from the lower body to the heart
pulmonary arteries carries deoxygenated blood from the right ventricle to the lungs
pulmonary circulation cycle where deoxygenated blood gets carried from the right ventricle to the lungs where it is then returned to the left atrium and then to the left ventricle.
pulmonary trunk the base of the pulmonary artery
pulmonary veins
Purkinje fibres
red blood cell
renal artery
renal vein
right atrium receives deoxygenated blood from the anterior vena cava where it is transported to the right ventricle
right ventricle receives deoxygenated blood from the right atrium and pumps it to the lungs through the pulmonary artery
sinoatrial (SA) node
semi-lunar valve two valves: pulmonary semilunar valve (between right ventricle and pulmonary trunk) and aortic semilunar valve (between left ventricle and aorta). permit blood to enter arteries but prevent blood from going back into the ventricle from those arteries.
septum separates the heart into a left and right section.
subclavian artery
subclavian vein
system circulation
systolic pressure
total cross-section area
umbilical artery
umbilical vein
valve prevent s oxygen from flowing backwards
veins carry oxygen to the heart from the capillary beds. can expand and stores 70% of the bodies blood.
venous duct
vessel wall
white blood cell
