Why? o Atrioventricular node is located in the _______________________. o At the AV node the action potential is delayed by _______________, which allows for _________________________. o AV node passes the action potential to the ______________________________, which divides to form __________________________ and ___________________________ o The Bundle branches are located in the __________________________ and they transfer the action potential finally to the _________________________. o On its own, SA node is capable of generating an action potential every ____________ sec, which results in contraction at the rate of _________ beats/min. o Signal form the ______________ nervous system and ___________ (hormone) can modify the rate of heartbeat. • Action Potential and Contraction of Contractile Fibers o Depolarization begins by the opening of ____________ channels, causing an influx of ________________ causing rapid depolarization. o What is the plateau phase? ________________________. o Plateau phase is characterized by the opening of ________ channels, increasing the influx of ____________ which triggers muscle contraction. o o Repolarization is due the closure of _________ channels and opening of ____________ channels. o Define refractory period? ____________________________________________________. o The longer refractory period in the cardiac muscle fibers allows _______________________________________________. o What is ECG or EKG? ______________________________________________. o The instruments used to record ECG is called ___________________________. o P wave is the result of _______________________________________ and signals the onset of __________________________. o QRS complex results from ______________________________________ and signals the onset of _________________________________. o T wave results from ______________________________________ and signals the onset of _________________________________. o What does the PQ interval represent? o An abnormal ECG can indicate _____________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________________ ________________. CARDIAC CYCLE o Cardiac cycle refers to ____________________________________________________. o The average duration of cardiac cycle in an adult is ______________ sec. o The term _______________ means to contract. o The term ________________ means to relax. o The major phases of the caridac cycle are: _________________________________________________. o Atrial systole lasts _________ sec and involves the contraction of _______________. o Contraction of the atria opens the _________ valve, causing the blood to flow into the ventricles. o The total volume of blood in the ventricles at the end of this phase is called the _______________________________. o As ventricular systole begins, the pressure in the ventricle _________________, causing the closure of __________ valves. o All four valves close at this time and this brief period is called _________________________________. o When the ventricular pressure becomes grater than the pressure in the pulmonary trunk and the aorta the ___________ valves are pushed open and blood begins to flow out of the ventricles. o At the end of all ejection the volume of blood still left behind in the ventricles is called ___________________________________. o As the ventricular diastole begins, the pressure in the ventricles _______________ , causing the blood to flow back into the _________________ which closes the ____________ valves. HEART SOUNDS: o Heart sounds are caused by _________________________________________. o The act of listening to the heart sounds with the help of stethoscope is called ____________________. o Each cardiac cycle produces _________ sounds, only the first _________ are loud enough to be heard through the stethoscope. o The first heart sound is called ___________________, and is caused by ________________________. o The second heart sound is called ___________________, and is caused by ________________________. o An abnormal heart sound is called ________________________________.
