During formation RBCs lose most of their organelles including Mitochondria, ribosomes, and nuclei
Where are WBC stem cells produced Bone marrow
What do WBCs help defend the body against Pathogens, toxins, wastes, abnormal cells, and damaged cells
What is the atrioventricular valve that is located on the side of the heart that receives the superior vena cava is the Tricuspid valve
Blood vessels in the cardiovascular system are subdivide into the Pulmonary circuit and Systemic circuit
Carries blood away from the heart and carries it to the capillaries Arteries
Discharges blood into the pulmonary circuit (lungs) Right Ventricle
The skeleton of the heart consists of Fibrous connective tissue that concircle the bases of the large blood vessels and each of the heart valves
Receives blood from the lungs (pulmonary circuit) Left atrium
Anchors the heart to surrounding structures Pericardium
Covers the outer surface of the heart Visceral Pericardium
Another name for the visceral pericardium epicardium
loose fitting sac around the heart Parietal pericardium
The function of the atrium is to Collect blood
Valve located between the left atrium and left ventricule Bicuspid or mitral
The wall of the heart has three distinct layers what are they Epicardium, myocardium, and endocardium
Folds of fibrous tissue that ensures a one-way flow of blood from the atria into the ventricules atrioventriuclar (AV) valve
What is the function of the fibrous skeleton Maintains shape, isolate muscles, and distribut force
