BMS 508.03 2/12/2016 Chapter 19 (cont) The Cardiovascular System (cont) Hemostasis • Hemostasis • The cessation of bleeding • Consists of 3 phases 1. Vascular phase 2. Platelet phase 3. Coagulation phase • The Vascular Phase • A cut triggers vascular spasm that lasts 30 minutes • 3 Steps of the Vascular Phase 1. Endothelial cells contract and expose basement membrane to bloodstream • Three Steps of the Vascular Phase • Endothelial cells 1. Release chemical factors ADP, tissue factor, and prostacyclin 2. Release local hormones, endothelins 3. Stimulate smooth muscle contraction and cell division • Endothelial plasma membranes become “sticky” 1. Seal off blood flow • The Platelet Phase • Begins within 15 seconds after injury • Platelet adhesion (attachment) 1. To sticky endothelial surfaces 2. To basement membranes 3. To exposed collagen fibers • Platelet aggregation (stick together) 1. Forms platelet plug that closes small breaks • Platelet Phase • Activated platelets release clotting compounds 1. Adenosine diphosphate (ADP) 2. Thromboxane A and 2erotonin 3. Clotting factors 4. Platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF) 5. Calcium ions • Factors That Limit the Growth of the Platelet Plug • Prostacyclin, released by endothelial cells, inhibits platelet aggregation • Inhibitory compounds released by other WBCs • Circulating enzymes break down ADP • Negative (inhibitory) feedback from serotonin • Development of blood clot isolates area • The Coagulation Phase • Begins 30 seconds or more after the injury • Blood clotting (coagulation) 1. Cascade reactions • Chain reactions of enzymes and proenzymes • Form three pathways • Convert circulating fibrinogen into insoluble fibrin • Clotting Factors • Also called procoagulants • Proteins or ions in plasma • Required for normal clotting • Three Coagulation Pathways • Extrinsic pathway • Intrinsic pathway • Common pathway • The Extrinsic Pathway • Begins in the vessel wall • Outside bloodstream • Damaged cells release tissue factor (TF) • TF + other compounds = enzyme complex • Activates Factor X • The Intrinsic Pathway • Begins with circulating proenzymes • Within bloodstream • Activation of enzymes by collagen • Platelets release factors (e.g., PF-3) • Series of reactions activates Factor X • The Common Pathway • Where intrinsic and extrinsic pathways converge • Forms complex prothrombin activator • Converts prothrombin to thrombin • Thrombin converts fibrinogen to fibrin • Feedback Control of Blood Clotting • Stimulates formation of tissue factor • Stimulates release of PF-3 1. Forms positive feedback loop (intrinsic and extrinsic) • Accelerates clotting • Anticoagulants (plasma proteins) 1. Antithrombin-III 2. Alpha-2-macroglobulin • Heparin • Aspirin • Protein C (activated by thrombomodulin) • Prostacyclin • Calcium Ions, Vitamin K, and Blood Clotting • Calcium ions (Ca ) and vitamin K are both essential to the clotting process • Clot Retraction • Pulls torn edges of vessel closer together 1. Reducing residual bleeding and stabilizing injury site • Reduces size of damaged area 1. Making it easier for fibroblasts, smooth muscle cells, and endothelial cells to complete repairs • Fibrinolysis • Slow process of dissolving clot 1. Thrombin and tissue plasminogen activator (t-PA) • Activate plasminogen • Plasminogen produces plasmin 1. Digests fibrin strands BMS 508.03 2/12/2016 Chapter 20 The Cardiovascular System (cont) An Intro to the Cardiovascular System • The Pulmonary Circuit • Carries blood to and from gas exchange surfaces of lungs • The Systemic Circuit • Carries blood to and from the body • Blood alternates between pulmonary circuit and systemic circuit • 3 Types of Blood Vessels • Arteries • Carry blood away from heart • Veins • Carry blood to heart • Capillaries • Networks between arteries and veins • Capillaries • Also called exchange vessels • Exchange materials between blood and tissues • Materials include dissolved gases, nutrients, waste products • 4 Chambers of the Heart • Right atrium • Collects blood from systemic circuit • Right ventricle • Pumps blood to pulmonary circuit • Left atrium • Collects blood from pulmonary circuit • Left ventricle • Pumps blood to systemic circuit Anatomy of the Heart • The Heart • Great veins and arteries at the base • Pointed tip is apex • Surrounded by pericardial sac • Sits between 2 pleural cavities in the mediastinum • The Pericardium • Double lining of the pericardial cavity • Visceral pericardium • Inner layer of pericardium • Parietal pericardium • Outer layer • Forms inner layer of pericardial sac • Pericardial cavity • Between parietal and visceral layers • Contains pericardial fluid • Pericardial sac • Fibrous tissue • Surrounds and stabilizes heart • Superficial Anatomy of the Heart • Atria • Thin-walled • Expandable outer auricle (atrial appendage) • Sulci • Coronary sulcus divides atria and ventricles • Anterior interventricular sulcus and posterior interventricular sulcus • Separate left and right ventricles • Contain blood vessels of cardiac muscle • The Heart Wall • Epicardium • Myocardium • Endocardium • Epicardium (Outer Layer) • Visceral pericardium • Covers the heart • Myocardium (Middle Layer) • Muscular wall of the heart • Concentric layers of cardiac muscle tissue • Atrial myocardium wraps around great vessels • 2 divisions of ventricular myocardium • Endocardium (Inner Layer) • Simple squamous epithelium • Cardiac Muscle Tissue • Intercalated discs • Interconnect cardiac muscle cells • Secured by desmosomes • Linked by gap junctions • Convey force of contraction • Propagate action potentials • Characteristics of Cardiac Muscle Cells • Small size • Single, central nucleus • Branching interconnections between cells • Intercalated discs • Internal Anatomy and Organization • Interatrial septum separates atria • Interventricular septum separates ventricles
