BIO 204 Exam 2

Cadiac Output, Blood Pressure Topic 2-3

Stenosis *a narrowed valve *BC more pressure must eject blood thru valve--> 1. Increased residual bl. vol. in a chamber 2. Cardiac cell hypertrophy 3. Low PP *Usually assoc w/ calcification of valve
Incontinence *valve that does not close properly, can lead to—> 1. Backward blood flow 2. Increased bl. vol. in affected chamber 3. Low PP *Associated w/ valve leaflets "billowing" backwards
Heart Murmers turbulent blood flow, that can be caused by stenosis restricting opening of heart valve turbulent blood flow, that can be caused by stenosis restricting opening of heart valve
Cardiac Output *Volume of blood ejected by each ventricle per MINUTE *SV x HR *@ rest 5 L/min.
Stroke volume *Volume of blood ejected by each ventricle per BEAT *about 70 ml/beat *Diff. btw EDV and ESV
Heart Rate *# of times the heart beats/min. *ave. cardiac cycles/min. * about 75/min.
Cardiac Reserve *difference btw resting and maximal cardiac output
End Diastolic Volume *Volume of blood that fills a ventricle during diastole *about 120 ml.
End Systolic Volume *Volume of blood remaining in a ventricle after systole *about 50 ml.
SV Factors 1. Preload 2. Contractility 3. Afterload
Remember Diastole= heart FILLING + Systole= heart EMPTYING
Ejection Fraction *Volume ejected * SV/EDV *average 70%, >50%= cardiac failure could occur, athletes=up to 90%
Preload *degree to which cardiac muscle fibers are stretched prior to contraction
Frank-Starling Law of Cardiac Muscle *If cardiac muscle sarcomeres are stretched w/in limits—> contract more forcibly *Recall length-tension relationship
Preload Factors *Factors that increase preload 1. Increased venous return 2. Increased time for filling (length of diastole) 3. increased muscle activity 4. increased inspiration 5. vasoconstriction
Contractility *any change in muscle contractile strength=independent of EDV & sarcomere length
Positive Ionotropic Effects *Increase Contractility 1. Autonomic Nerv. Sys.: SNS (Fight-or-Flight) 2. Chemicals: Epinephrine, Norepineprhine, Excess Ca2+, Glucagon, Thyroxine, Digitalis
Negative Ionotropic Effects *Decrease Contractility 1. Autonomic Nerv. Sys.: PNS 2. Chemicals: Acetylcholine Excess H+, Excess K+, Calcium channel blockers (like used in high blood pressure)
Afterload *Pressure that ventricles must overcome to eject blood into arteries *> arterial pressure= harder for ventricles to eject blood—> reduced SV
Corrective Response-Elevated Aortic&Carotid pressoreceptors stimulated—>afferent impulse across Glossopharyngeal/Vagus nerve to Medulla—>Cardiacinhibotory center activated/Cardioaccelatory Center inhibited—>Efferent message to SA node via Vagus nerve—>HR decreases, BP decreases
Corrective Response- Reduced Aortic/Carotid pressorecptors=NOT stimulated—>reduced messaged to medulla—>CAC activated/CIC inhibited—>Efferent messsage to SA node via cardiac sympathetic nerves—> HR/BP increases
Congestive Heart Failure heart's weak pumping action causes a buildup of fluid called congestion in lungs and other body tissues

Atherosclerosis *Thickening of artery wall due to accumulation of fatty materials (cholesterol)
Varicose Veins *Damage to one or more valves in VEIN -->swollen, twisted veins due to abnormal collection of blood *Venous distention/pooling of blood-->become tangible/palpable/tortuous--> surrounding tissue may become--edematous
