Figure 18.17 Atrial depolarization, initiated by the SA node, causes the P wave. P R T Q S SA node AV node With atrial depolarization complete, the impulse is delayed at the AV node. Ventricular depolarization begins at apex, causing the QRS complex. Atrial repolarization occurs. P R T Q S P R T Q S Ventricular depolarization is complete. Ventricular repolarization begins at apex, causing the T wave. Ventricular repolarization is complete. P R T Q S P R T Q S P R T Q S Depolarization Repolarization 1 2 3 4 5 6

4.2.8 Explain the events of each phase of the cardiac cycle 4.2.8.1 describe the pressure changes responsible for valve opening & systole: contraction of heart; pumping OUT diastole: relaxation of heart; filling cardiac cycle: atrial systole + diastole ventricular systole + diastole Start = mid-to-late diastole: 1. Period of ventricular filling: mid-to-late diastole » pressure low (but P atria > P ventricles ), AV valves OPEN ; SL valves CLOSED after 70% ventricular filling, AV valves begin to close P wave & atrial systole end diastolic volume or EDV ) atrial diastole for rest of cycle J. Carnegie, UofO

2. ventricles begin to contract increased pressure closes AV valves - period of isovolumetric contraction (volume constant; a closed system) increased pressure opens SL valves ventricular ejection phase (aortic pressure up to 120 mm Hg) 3. Isovolumetric relaxation: early diastole ventricles relax; pressure decreases rapidly; backflow of aortic/pulmonary blood closes SL valves ( dicrotic notch ); ventricles a closed system = isovolumetric relaxation 4. Back to (1): atria continued in diastole & have been filling; when pressure > ventricular pressure, AV valves open and we are back to (1) J. C arnegie, UofO

75 beat/min: each cardiac cycle=0.8 sec atrial systole = 0.1 sec ventricular systole = 0. 3 sec quiescent period = 0.4 sec 2 Features driving Cardiac Cycle: (a) Blood flow through heart controlled entirely by pressure changes (b) Blood flows from higher to lower pressure through any available opening ** electrical activity of left & right hearts is almost simultaneous
