Cardiovascular Physiology 1. Describe the sequence of electrical activation of the heart beginning with the generation of an action potential in the SA node. 2. Describe the ionic conductance changes that occur during the generation of a normal ventricular action potential. 3. Describe the ionic conductance changes that occur during the generation of a normal SA node action potential. 4. List the three components of the normal electrocardiogram and the associated electrical events. 5. Review the diagram on page CV-14 of the syllabus. Be able to describe the pressure changes that take place in the left atrium, left ventricle, and central aorta during the cardiac cycle. Indicate the times when the various cardiac valves are either open or closed and when the heart sounds associated with the cardiac cycle occur. 6. Describe the effects of increased and decreased autonomic nervous system activity on pacemaker activity, cardiac function, and peripheral vascular resistance. 7.
