Resource summary

Question Answer
5 types of WBC 1.Neutrophils 2.lymphocytes 3.monocytes 4.eosinophils 5.basophils
erythrocytes red blood cells, contains hemoglobin (oxygen-carrying protein) 4.2-6.2 million RBC's per microliter of blood, life span for a RBC- 120 days
Leukocytes white blood cells protects the body against infection, 5,000-10,000 WBC's per microliter Leukocytosis: ^in WBC (infection&lukemia) Leukopenia: v in WBC (viral infection&chemotherapy)
thrombocytes platelets, 140,000-440,000 platelets per microliter, life span of 9 to 12 days
pulmonary circulation sends deoxygenated blood from the RV to the lungs (alveoli give oxygen) sends oxygenated blood from the lungs to the LA
systemic circulation sends oxygenated blood from the LV to the body
tricuspid valve atrioventricular valve between the RA & RV
pulmonice valve Semi lunar valve between the RV & pulmonary artery
mitral valve (bicuspid valve) atrioventriculae valve between the LA &LV
aortic valve semi lunar valve between the LV & Aorta
Layers of the Heart 1.endocardium 2.myocardium 3.epicardium
endocardium inner layer: lining of the heart
myocardium muscular middle layer: contractile element of the heart
epicardium outer layer of the heart, the coronary arteries is found on the heart & supplys blood to the heart
blood vessels aorta, arteries, arterioles, capillaries, venules, veins, superior and inferior vena cavae
aorta, arteries, arterioles carry oxygenated blood to the body
venules, veins, superior and inferior vena cavae carry deoxygenated blood back to the heart
Circrulatory sends oxygen, nutrients, hormones and enzymes to the cells. send waste such as carbon dioxide and urea to the organs.
