Thrombocyte Platelets, Hemostasis: clump togethere and stick to vessel wall.
Lymphocytes WBC,providing defense against specific pathogens or toxins
Plasma 55%, plasma proteins, other solutes and water
Formed Elements 45%, platelets, WBC's and RBC's.
Artery Wavey, thicker media, transports blood away from heart, smooth muscle. Arteriole is a small artery.
Vein Has valves, smooth inside, thinner media, smooth muscle, carries blood back to the heart. Venule is a small vein.
Capillary Small, thin walled. Inner connect smallest arteries and veins.
Continous Most regions of the body. Endothelium is complete. Connected by junctions and desmosomes.
Fenestrated Windows because incomplete lining. Filtration sites of kidney.
Sinusoids Lager pores, thinner basal lamina. Flattened and irregular. Liver, spleen and pancrease.
Diapedesis Movement of WBC's through walls of blood vessels by migration between adjecent endothelial cells.
SA Node Sets hearth rythem causing atriums to contract.
AV Node Between atriums and ventricules, pathway that allows for relaxation.
Purkinje Fibers At apex of heart, where contraction begins, pushing blood out of the heart.
Cardioinhibitory Center Governs activities of parasympathetic neurons.
Cardioaccelerator Center Stimulation activates the necessary sympathetic neurons.
Nasopharynx Pseudostratified cilliated columner. Filters air. Where internal nares to soft palate.
Oropharynx Passage way for food and air. Stratified columnar. From soft palate to epiglottis.
Laryngopharnyx Passage way for food and air. Stratified cubodial.
Respiration Internal At the cell, exchange gasses, diffussion.
Respiration External Lungs, CO2 goes into alveoli in dirrect connection to capillaries. Diffussion.
Ventilation Exhalation Taking air out, increasing cavity size. Pressure is decreased. Intercostal muscles. Boyles Law
Ventilation Inhalation Diaphragam. Bring air in, ribs pull together, cavitiy size decreases, pressure is increased. External intercostals. Boyles Law.
