Cardiac Physiology I I. Cardiac Cycle repeating pattern of contraction and relaxation, that allows the chambers to fill and empty with blood as the chambers fill with blood, this causes the pressure within the chamber to _____________, when they are empty, the pressure ______________ these pressure relationships determine the movement of blood through the heart two phases: systole: diastole: Atrial Systole (a) In the beginning, all 4 chambers are relaxed, and the ventricles are partially filled with blood. As the atria contract, ( __ pressure), this empties all of the blood into the ventricle, topping them off. Atrial Diastole (b) Now, pressure in atria ___, ventricles are full of blood = __________________________ Ventricular pressure is _______________. Ventricular Systole early (c) Ventricles start to contract (just a little), this causes the pressure to rise even faster. Pressure reaches a point where the _____________ snap shut (_________________________________). Pressure not high enough to open ______________ yet.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
