09/29 Chapter 20 cont’d * 2-3 questions on exam 2 The Energy for Cardiac Contractions  Aerobic metabolism - Fatty acids - Glucose - Oxygen from circulating hemoglobin stored in myoglobin The Cardiac Cycle  One heartbeat - Contraction and relaxation of each chamber  Each chamber has two phases - Systole (contraction) - Diastole (relaxation) * Fluids move from higher to lower pressure - When pressure gradient present  Blood pressure in any chamber - Rises (move blood) - Falls (blood flow in) - Alternate movement in and out  Blood flows from high to low pressure (repeated) - Timing of contractions and one-way valves  Phases of the Cardiac Cycle - Atrial systole - Atrial diastole - Ventricular systole - Ventricular diastole  Cardiac Cycle begins with Atrial Systole Atrial Systole  Pressure increases  AP starts at AV node and atrium responds  AV valves are open  Small proportion of blood ejected 30%  Short lived; top off ventricles  End-diastolic volume (EDV) - Volume at the end of ventricular diastole  Largest amount of blood in ventricles in the cycle  Take blood coming back to it  Pressure drops as atrial systole ends Atrial Diastole  AV valves close * Atrial diastole and ventricular systole begin at the same time  Atria fill during atrial diastole - Low pressure Ventricular Systole  2 phases Isovolumetric ventricular contraction - Ventricles contract - Valves closed - Volume of blood does not change  Same volume during ventricle contraction - Pressure increases  But does not exceed pressure of artery  Ventricular ejection - Isotonic contraction - Exceeds pressure of artery - Ventricular pressure - Vessel pressure - Semilunar valves - Stroke volume (SV)  Amount ejected per ventricular contraction  Difference between end diastolic and end systolic - End-systolic volume (ESV)  About 40% of end-diastolic volume  What’s left after ejection (60% ejected) Ventricular Diastole  2 phases  Isovolumetric ventricular relaxation - Valves closed - Vessels expand - Ventricles contracting  Leads to relaxation - Pressure dropping  Passive ventricular filling - Pressure in ventricles drops below atrium and allows them to open Ex. turkey pastor Squeezing it – active Suction that occurs – passive *Figure 20-17 Important * Recommend printing out from slides Different sounds of the heart  Can be heard depending where you place your stethoscope Heart Sounds * Know names and what causes them  S1 - Loud sound produced by AV valves closing - “lub”  S2 - Loud sound produced by semilunar valves closing - “dub”  S3 & S4 - Soft sounds as blood flows into ventricles and atrial contraction  Heart murmur - Sounds produced by regurgitation through valves - Insufficient backflow - In between sounds Cardiodynamics  End-diastolic volume (EDV) - Volume of blood in ventricle before it contracts - As much blood as you can pack before  End-systolic volume (ESV) - Volume of blood remaining in ventricle after contraction - What’s left after  Stroke volume (SV) - EDV – ESV - Amount of blood ejected from ventricle during one contraction  Ejection fraction - % of EDV represented by SV, typically 60% at rest Model of Stroke Volume Example: hand pump  ESV - allows creation of suction to allow passive filling  Can eject a little more or less depending on what is needed Cardiac Output (CO)  The volume pumped by left ventricle in 1 minute - pumps to systemic circuit  CO = HR SV  Anything that affects components affects CO  CO = cardiac output (mL/min)  HR = heart rate (beats/min)  SV = stroke volume (mL/beat)  Factors Affecting Cardiac Output - heart rate – ANS and/or hormones - stroke volume – adjust EDV or ESV - change BV – before and after it contracts  Affecting HR - autonomic innervation - hormones  Affecting SV - end-diastolic volume - end-systolic volume Autonomic Innervation adjusts Heart Rate Cardiac centers of medulla oblongata Cardioacceleratory center - norepinephrine - sympathetic neurons – stimulation - cervical and upper thoracic – more AP per minute - increase HR  Cardioinhibitory center - Acetylcholine - Parasympathetic neurons – inhibiting HR - Vagus nerves – few AP per minute Cardiac reflexes  Cardiac centers respond to: - Blood pressure (baroreceptors) - Arterial oxygen and carbon dioxide levels (chemoreceptors)  Located in aorta and carotid artery - directly to brain - systemic side of heart * Aid in speeding or slowing of HR Autonomic tone  Dual innervation maintains resting tone - Ach and NE - Gas and break adjusting at the same time - Adjustments on demand ANS effects on the SA Node  Alter membrane permeability  Ach (parasympathetic stimulation) - binds to ligand gated K+ channels - opens the channels - (+) ions move out & (-) ions inside - slow heart down by hyperpolarizing action potential  NE (sympathetic stimulation) - by opening Na+/Ca 2+ - push membrane up closer to AP so occurs more often - increase HR Atrial Reflex  Stretch receptors in right atrium sense venous return  Increase HR – sympathetic stimulation of SA node  Large return at once  How much blood returning to RA  Seen when relaxed and you jump up and run  Hormonal effects on heart rate - increase HR  E and NE  Thyroid hormone  Delivering blood to system Factors Affecting Stroke Volume  Change EDV or ESV = change SV - EDV influenced by:  Filling time – duration of ventricular diastole  Venous return – rate during ventricular diastole; increase rate of blood flow return  Preload – degree of ventricular stretching during diastole – directly proportional to EDV – right before it contracts – affects ability of muscle cells to produce tension – intrinsic property of cardiac muscle – don’t have to innervate; stretch a little more and contract harder and ejects more blood – fill longer or faster at end of diastole * Anything that affects the heart before and after contraction More on EDV and SV  At rest EDV is low - myocardium is minimally stretched and stroke volume is low (won’t contract hard)  Intrinsic factor of blood  With exercise EDV increases - myocardium stretches more and stroke volume increases The Frank-Starling Principle As EDV increases, stroke volume increases - up to a point  Ventricular expansion is limited by myocardial connective tissue, the cardiac (fibrous) skeleton, and the pericardial sac End-Systolic Volume (ESV)  The amount of blood that remains in the ventricle at the end of ventricular systole Three Factors that Affect ESV - Preload  Ventricular stretching during diastole  Increase SV  Affects what is left at the end  Affected by venous return and filling time (longer or faster) - Contractility  Force produced at a given preload  Adjust through hormone and nervous stimulation, and preload  Affected by autonomic activity and hormones or preload to contract harder - Afterload  Tension required to open the semilunar valve  Artery on other side of ventricle  Decrease SV  Inversely related to ESV and SV  From the aorta  Large pressure – more pressure/tension needed to overcome pressure – decrease amount of blood ejected  Increased by restricting arterial blood flow  Pressure that needs to be created to eject blood  Makes it harder to push blood out Summary: The Control of Cardiac Output  Heart rate control factors - ANS - Hormones - Atrial reflex  Stroke volume control factors - EDV - ESV Chapter 21 Blood Vessels and Circulation Arteries  Alter blood flow  Elasticity - passive contraction - stretch and return - absorb the pressure waves from heart beating - return to original size/shape - will be lost or reduced when you get older - rebound and continue movement - vessels that carry blood away from heart  Contractility - change diameter - sympathetic division of ANS - Vasoconstriction – smooth muscle contracts - Vasodilation – smooth muscle relaxes - Affects afterload, peripheral blood pressure, and perfusion - Change SV - Take blood from heart and pushed through with high pressure and returns pulse gets bounced - Smooth muscle = active control Capillaries * Are the only vessels that permit exchange between blood and interstitial fluid  Small with thin walls and slow blood flow - layer of ET and apical & basal surface - profuse through tissue and allow exchange  Networks permeate all active tissues of capillaries  Consist of endothelium inside basement membrane  No tunica media or tunica externa  Diameter is similar to RBC or even smaller Continuous Capillaries  Most common; found everywhere  Basement membrane  Complete endothelial lining  All tissues except epithelia and cartilage; unless avascular tissue  Diffusion of - small things & lipid soluble - water, small solutes, and lipid-soluble materials - not blood cells and plasma proteins  Specialized in CNS and thymus - tight junctions - water tight barrier - selective membrane  Diffusion around epithelial cells Fenestrated Capillaries  Similar to continuous  Specialized  Biggest difference: pores in endothelial lining  Rapid exchange of water and large solutes; no RBC - much faster - same size gets through it - larger things don’t get through  Found in - specialized areas - choroid plexus, endocrine organs, kidneys, intestinal tract Sinusoids (Sinusoidal capillaries)  Gaps between endothelial cells - large gaps - pores allow movement between and through the cells  Free exchange of water, proteins, RBC - seen where need to move things in and out of blood (big things) - nothing prevents  Found in liver, spleen, bone marrow - most extreme - don’t have basement membrane in many cases - make RBCs
