    Cardiovascular System Components:

  • Properties of BloodTwo main components: 1. Plasma

    2. Blood cellsRed blood cells (erythrocytes)

    White blood cells (leukocytes)

    PlateletsPlasma 55% 90% water 7% plasma proteins 3% other (acids, salts)Formed elements 45%>99% red blood cells

  • The Heart

  • Excitation of the HeartCardiac Muscle

    Sympathetic Influence (tachycardia)

    Parasympathetic Influence (bradycardia)

  • The Heart Electrical Conduction SystemSinoatrial (SA) nodeBundle of His (AV bundle) Atrioventricular (AV) nodeRight and left bundle branchesPurkinje fibres

  • The Electrical Activity of the HeartElectrocardiogram (ECG) Graphical representation of electrical sequence of events occurring with each contraction of the heart

  • Blood PressureBlood Pressure

    Normal BP = 120 / 80 mmHgHypertensive BP = 140 / 90 mmHg

  • Blood Flow Distribution

  • Cardiac OutputCardiac Output (Q) is the primary indicator of the functional capacity of the circulatory system to meet the demands of physical activity. On average a person pumps about 5 litres of blood per minute from their left ventricle at rest. The difference between a trained and untrained person is how this is accomplished.Q = Trained 50bts/min * 100 ml/btUntrained 71bts/min * 70 ml/bt
