Contents: 1. The Circuitry --
2. Electrical Activity of the Heart --
Cardiac Action Potentials Consist of Several Phases --
Conduction in Cardiac Fibers Depends on Local Circuit Currents --
Cardiac Excitability Depends on the Activation and Inactivation of Specific Currents --
The Heart Generates its Own Pacemaking Activity --
An Impulse Can Travel Around a Reentry Loop --
Afterdepolarizations Lead to Triggered Activity --
Electrocardiography Displays the Spread of Cardiac Excitation --
Dysrhythmias Occur Frequently and Constitute Important Clinical Problems --
3. The Cardiac Pump --
The Gross and Microscopic Structures of the Heart are Uniquely Designed for Optimal Function --
The Cardiac Chambers Consist of Two Atria, Two Ventricles, and Four Valves --
The Sequential Contraction and Relaxation of the Atria and Ventricles Constitute the Cardiac Cycle --
The Fick Principle is Used to Determine Cardiac Output --
4. Regulation of the Heartbeat --
Heart Rate is Controlled Mainly by the Autonomic Nerves --
Myocardial Performance is Regulated by Intrinsic Mechanisms --
Myocardial Performance is Regulated by Nervous and Humoral Factors --
5. Hemodynamics --
Velocity of the Bloodstream Depends on Blood Flow and Vascular Area --
Blood Flow Depends on the Pressure Gradient --
Relationship Between Pressure and Flow Depends on the Characteristics of the Conduits --
Resistance to Flow --
Flow May be Laminar or Turbulent --
Shear Stress on the Vessel Wall --
Rheologic Properties of Blood --
6. The Arterial System --
The Hydraulic Filter Converts Pulsatile Flow to Steady Flow --
Arterial Elasticity Compensates for the Intermittent Flow Delivered by the Heart --
The Arterial Blood Pressure is Determined by Physical and Physiological Factors --
The Pressure Curves Change in Arteries at Different Distances from the Heart --
Blood Pressure is Measured by a Sphygmomanometer in Human Patients --
7. The Microcirculation and Lymphatics --
Functional Anatomy --
The Endothelium Plays an Active Role in Regulating the Microcirculation --
The Endothelium Plays a Passive Role in Transcapillary Exchange --
The Lymphatics Return the Fluid and Solutes that Escape Through the Endothelium to the Circulating Blood --
8. The Peripheral Circulation and Its Control --
Contraction and Relaxation of Arteriolar Vascular Smooth Muscle Regulate Peripheral Blood Flow --
Intrinsic (Local) Control of peripheral Blood Flow --
Extrinsic Control of Peripheral Blood Flow is Mediated Mainly by the Sympathetic Nervous System --
Balance Between Extrinsic and Intrinsic Factors in Regulation of Peripheral Blood Flow --
9. Control of Cardiac Output: Coupling of Heart and Blood Vessels --
The Vascular Function Curve Relates Central Venous Pressure to Cardiac Output --
Cardiac Output and Venous Return are Closely Associated --
The Heart and Vasculature are Coupled Functionally --
The Right Ventricle Regulates not Only Pulmonary Blood Flow but Also Central Venous Pressure --
Heart Rate has Ambivalent Effects on Cardiac Output --
Ancillary Factors Affect the Venous System and Cardiac Output --
10. Coronary Circulation --
Functional Anatomy of Coronary Vessels --
Coronary Blood Flow is Regulated by Physical, Neural, and Metabolic Factors --
Cardiac Oxygen Consumption is a Function of the Work Performed by the Heart --
Cardiac Efficiency --
Diminished Coronary Blood Flow Impairs Cardiac Function --
Coronary Collateral Vessels Develop in Response to Impairment of Coronary Blood Flow --
11. Special Circulations --
Cutaneous Circulation --
Skeletal Muscle Circulation --
Cerebral Circulation --
The Pulmonary and Systemic Circulations are in Series with Each Other --
The Renal Circulation Accounts for About 20% of the Cardiac Output --
The Splanchnic Circulation Provides Blood Flow to the Gastrointestinal Tract, Liver, Spleen, and Pancreas --
Fetal Circulation --
12. Interplay of Central and Peripheral Factors in the Control of the Circulation --
Exercise --
Hemorrhage --
App: Case Study Answers.
Responsibility: Robert M. Berne, Matthew N. Levy.
