Heart and Circulation

The Circulatory System consists of the heart, vessels, and blood. Its primary function is to transport life-sustaining minerals to the body's cells and remove metabolic waste from the cells.

 

The Heart

 

Located in the upper center of the chest of the chest cavity, the heart is hallow, muscular organ about the size of your fist. It weighs approximatley 11 oz.

 

When the blood leaves the heart it is pumped through arteries into the lungs then into arterioles. Finally the arterioles give way to very thiny capillaries where it exchanges oxygen for carbon dioxide. It then makes its return trip back to the heart.

 

Blood and the Vascular System

 

There is an incredible network of about 70,000 miles of blood vessels! Note: There are 500 miles of blood vessels for every pound one is overweight!

 

Arteries and arterioles carry blood from the heart.

 

Capillaries allow the exchange of molecules between the blood tissue fulid.

 

Venules and veins return the blood to the heart ("dark red" or used blood- looks blue through the skin).

 

Function - Circulation, in order to cleanse and nourish the cells of the body, the pre-capillary sphinter muscles regulate blood flow through capillary beds and rare a factor in blood pressure and body temperature regulation.
