  • Similarities And Differences Between Skeletal, Cardiac, And Smooth Muscle.

    similarities and differences between skeletal, cardiac, and smooth muscle. Skeletal Muscles are attached to bones. Their functions include: produce skeletal movement, maintain posture and body position, support soft tissues, guard body entrances and exits, maintain body temperature, and store nutrients. They are striated muscles because of their appearances of having bands of actin and myosin that form the sarcomere which is located in the myofibrils. The skeletal muscle consists of it being enormous in size, multinucleate (containing hundreds of nuclei internal to the plasma membrane), and banded. These types of muscles are voluntary since we control them by nerve impulses by the brain transmitting…

  • Organ System And Nervous System

    functions and organs and also have their own fair share of problems. The muscular system composes of the tissues and organs that are used to exert a force, whether under voluntary or involuntary control. Muscles are composed of long, slender cells called fibers, and these fibers come in bundles with very few or countless amounts per bundle. Muscles move by either contracting or extending, which is directed by nerve impulses sent from the central nervous system. There are three main types of…

  • Energy Consumption Lab Report

    Our body functions and consumes gas (O2) differently at rest and in motion. Energy requirement to maintain the body’s condition at rest is very different than the energy requirement during maximal exercise. At rest, the muscle intake of gas is very little, but during activity, oxygen consumption is multiples due to the intense oxygen demands of the muscles. Other parameters that are expected to change during exercise are metabolic rate, heart rate and blood pressure, stroke volume, cardiac…

  • Single-Linear Epidemiology: A Case Study

    All heartbeats consist of a mechanical component and an electrical component. The heartbeat is created by cardiac depolarization caused by electrical currents that induce muscle contraction. The electrical component of the heartbeat begins in the Sinoatrial (SA) Node and its function is to send electrical impulses that stimulate your heart to beat, and these impulses induce the atria to contract. As the atria contract, the impulse moves on to the Atrioventricular (AV) node which leads the…

  • 2.1 Explain How The Musculo Skeletal System

    Case study one – (Explain how the musculo skeletal system structure is suited to the function it performs. (2.1) Mrs C is pregnant and wants to pick up a ball, describe in depth which parts of the musculo skeletal system are involved in this movement and which structural parts provide support and protection of the vital organs. The musculo skeletal system consists of bones of the skeleton, muscles, cartilage, tendons, ligaments and joints, they all work together to provide the body support,…

  • Essay On Hypothermia

    adjusting their insulation. Another way to produce heat is the specific dynamic action, the thermic effect of food. The added heat after eating is caused by the energy used to breakdown molecules and synthesizing proteins, this result also varies on what type of food is being broken down. The breakdown of meats takes a lot of energy and carbohydrates takes the lowest amount of energy. Furthermore, the contraction of skeletal muscle also produces a lot of heat. The production of large amounts of…

  • Differences Between Exercise And Pulse Rates

    - Three reasons for the rise in pulse rate when the degrees of exercise increase. Reason ⅰ : To remove lactic acid in blood and skeletal muscle cells When the degrees of exercise increase, → The skeletal muscles contract more frequently. → Not enough oxygen is supplied to the skeletal muscles for aerobic respiration. → Skeletal muscle cells carry out anaerobic respiration to generate additional amount…

  • Muscular Dystrophy

    Every year, thousands of people, mostly young children, are affected by the neuromuscular disease Muscular Dystrophy. There are many different types of Muscular Dystrophy and they differ based on which muscles are affected and what the causative protein in the body is. Muscular Dystrophy was first introduced to us in 1830 by Sir Charles Bell, who wrote of an illness that caused a great amount of weakness in young boys. Years later, a French neurologist by the name of Guillaume Duchenne…

  • Muscular Dystrophy Essay

    Occurring mostly in males, Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy is an X-linked disorder that includes progressive muscle weakening caused by an insufficient gene for the production of a protein in the muscles called dystrophin. (Lucas-Heron, 1995) It affects about one in 3600-6000 live male births, making it the most common form of muscular dystrophy. Symptoms are most often noticeable by the time patients reach the age of three to five. The affected males will lose their ability to walk by eight to…

  • Cardio-Respiratory Mechanisms

    respond to exercise, specifically how long they can work and how efficiently they work. We predicted that females who exercise will have a higher relative-VO2, higher a-vO2-difference, higher stroke volume(SV) and higher cardiac output(CO) at their peak work rate; than individuals who do not exercise. In addition, we predict that females who exercise their heart rate(HR) will be lower before and after exercise than in females who do not exercise. These subjects performed high intensity exercises…
