Chapter 38: Circulation and PerfusionCirculation refers to flow of blood throughout theheart and blood vessels.Perfusion describes blood flow to a capillary bed toprovide nutrients and oxygen to tissues and organs.Although the distinction between these two concepts issubtle, they go hand in hand in explaining how a healthycirculatory system contributes to healthy functioning of everyorgan in the body.pg 1438-1452 (stop at prevent clotformation)

Structures of the CardiovascularSystemHeartCardiac Cycle: simultaneouscontraction of the twoatria, followed a fraction ofa second later by thesimultaneous contractionof the ventricles.Electrical Conduction:electrical activity thatinitiates contraction of themyocardiumFigure 38-1The atria receive blood into the heart; theventricles pump blood out of the heart. Valvesbetween the chambers allow blood to flow inone direction from one chamber to anotherwithout backflow.

Structures of the Cardiovascular System(cont’d)Heart, blood vessels, red blood cellsHemoglobin: carries oxygenThe vascular system is composed of three types of vessels: arteries andarterioles, veins, and capillaries.ArteriesOxygenated blood to tissues. Arteries have thick, elastic walls that allow them tostretch during cardiac contraction (systole)and to recoil when the heart relaxes(diastole).
