    The Cardiac Cycle The cardiac cycle is the sequence of events that occur in the heart during one heart beat. It is how the heart operates, and what exactly happens when it contracts and relaxes. The heart is equipped with four chambers and one-way valves that work with precision to pump blood to and from the body. The heart regulates blood volume to support efficient circulation to the cells, tissues, organs, and systems. It provides oxygen and nutrients to the bodies tissue while also removing metabolic waste from cells to disposal sites. It is ultimately responsible for many homeostatic actives that keep us alive and well. It beats roughly seventy-five beats per minute, which is less than one beat per second. During the single beat, the heart goes through a series of steps that is ultimately called the cardiac cycle. There are two phases that take place during this…

    In light of the study of the Cardiac Cycle Time Effects on Sensory Modulation, it was apparent that the point of the experiment was to investigate the differences in memory recollection subsequent to the presence of various visual and auditory stimuli. The study involved the usage of an EOG, an EDA transducer, and a headphone set that was attached to my body accordingly before the study was initiated. The purpose of these devices was to monitor the change in muscular electrical activity around…

    to and from the heart.” (National Institute of Health). Children who have heart murmurs are most likely to be considered abnormal murmurs and they were most likely born with a heart defect that caused the heart murmur. The child could have been born with a change in the heart’s structure, which could have an impact on normal blood flow through the heart. “Effective evaluation of a heart murmur is very difficult to accomplish without a thorough understanding of the cardiac cycle and its…

    Introduction: The heart rate of an animal can be used as an indicator to identify when a stimulus evokes a reaction from the animal. Specifically in the case of humans’, there tends to be the cognitive ability to physically withhold a reaction from a stimulus and mask the involuntary reaction. However, the heart rate reacts immediately after a stimulus, and is not reigned in or controlled cognitively, so could the heart potentially be a true indicator of an individuals reaction to a stimulus?…

    our bodies. For example, skeletal muscles demand an increase in oxygen and substrates and simultaneously remove carbon dioxide and metabolites (Burton et al., 2004). Furthermore, studies have conducted that demonstrate the peril of living an inactive and sedentary lifestyle. Thus, exercise can strengthen cardiac and respiratory variables by having them become more efficient (Salmon et al., 2003). As one exercises, work rate increases and the body must match the necessities of the respiratory…
