Cardiovascular Pre-Lab Colin Van Es Biol 1201 AA Tuesday, November 13, 2007 Before reviewing the assigned website, “The Human Heart: An Online Exploration From the Franklin Institute,” I knew a few things about the human cardiovascular system. First, it is responsible for carrying nutrients through the body by use of the blood stream. The blood absorbs the nutrients and then takes them throughout the body to be used. It is also responsible for carrying oxygen to the body by a similar method. The blood flows from the right ventricle into the lungs where it become oxygenated and then to the left atrium, ventricle and finally the body before it is run through the process again starting in the right atrium.

Unformatted text preview: without opening the chest despite its hard to reach location, 2) the average adult has about 5 liters of blood in their body, 3) Due to the presence of living cells, blood is considered to be alive, 4) The body is constantly making new blood, 5) The average adult heart only weighs 11 ounces and 6) Approximately 55% of blood is plasma. During this lab I expect to better understand the human cardiovascular system through the examples of sheep hearts, the preserved fetal pig, rat or shark, and the video. I will also be able to see examples and better understand the workings of the veins and arteries as well as the system of the veins and arteries.
