  • Anaesthesia Effect

    In order to assess if the full effect of anaesthesia has taken effect, the rat’s pedal reflex will be tested. Essentially, after a given period of time (approximately 5-10 minutes) after administration of anesthesia, the foot of the rat will be pinched. If the animal flinches or responds with a sudden jerk, the anesthesia has not fully taken effect and additional time or dosage is required to put the animal under. If there is no response, the animal is ready for surgery. Approximately 3-5 rats…

  • Congenital Heart Disease Essay

    atrium, the right ventricle, and the left ventricle. There are two atrioventricular valves: the tricuspid valve in the right side and the mitral valve in the left side. There are also the pulmonary and aortic valves that originate from the right and the left ventricles. The heart is located in the mediastinum. During embryonic development, oxygenated blood from the placenta flows into the right atrium through the inferior vena cava. Blood from the right atrium flows to the right ventricle to the…

  • Mitral Valve Regurgitation Essay

    valve is located between the upper left chamber of the heart (left atrium) and the lower left chamber of the heart (left ventricle). Normally, this valve opens when the atrium pumps blood into the ventricle, and it closes when the ventricle pumps blood out to the body. Mitral valve regurgitation happens when the mitral valve does not close properly. As a result, blood in the ventricle leaks back into the atrium. Mitral valve regurgitation causes the heart to work harder to pump blood. If the…

  • Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy Case Study

    form of feline cardiomyopathies. This disease affects the cardiovascular system. The heart has many important anatomical features. One of these being the ventricle of the heart. The ventricle of the heart is the main heart muscle that pumps blood. When HCM occurs the left ventricle within the heart thickens. When the thickening of the ventricle occurs there will be a decreased ventricular chamber volume, and abnormal ventricular relaxation. This deals with the diastolic aspect of the heart.…

  • The Human Body: The Cardiovascular System

    The two upper chambers are called the atria and the two lower chambers are ventricles. The atria are smaller and have thinner, less muscular walls than the ventricles and are the receiving chambers. Blood enters through veins that open into the atria and leaves from arteries which come from the ventricles. Each chamber is named based on it’s location so there are right and left atria and right and left ventricles. The walls of the chambers are made up of cardiac muscle tissue or myocardium.…

  • Case Study Auscultate Caleb's Heart

    is between the right atria and right ventricle. Therefore, you would auscultate the tricuspid valve on the left side of the heart, between the fourth and fifth rib (or intercostal space) and lower left sternum area. The mitral valve is between the left atrium and left ventricle. Therefore, you would auscultate the mitral valve on the right side of the heart, between the fifth and sixth rib (or intercostal space). The pulmonary valve is between the right ventricle and pulmonary artery. Therefore,…

  • The Cardiac Cycle: The Cardiac Cycle

    This occurs when the ventricles are almost full the atria contracts, pumping more blood into the ventricles. The contraction completes ventricular filling, causing the pressure and volume in the ventricles to further increase. Following Atrial Systole is Ventricular Systole. This is when the ventricles contract, forcing blood back up towards the atria. When the pressure in the ventricles exceeds that in the atria it snaps the AV valves shut, causing the…

  • Bufo Marinus Lab Report

    It was hypothesised that the ventricle of the Bufo marinus would have a greater mass (g) in comparison to the atrium. Prediction of results You predicted that: It was predicted that the ventricle has a greater mass than the atrium of the Bufo marinus. Materials and methods 2 The Bufo marinus was firstly double pithed then opened via surgical scissors and tweezers to expose the abdominal cavity. The heart was located and the connective tissue surrounding the heart was removed so the heart…

  • Ventricular Obstacles Of The Human Body

    2.1. The left ventricle and interventricular septum The heart has two inferior chambers, called the right and left ventricles, respectively. These chambers are the “pumps” that expel blood into the blood vessels and keeps it flowing through the body (Rizzo, 2016). The left ventricle is a cavity that has thick muscular walls that contains the papillary muscles as well as the chordae tendinae that attaches the atrio-ventricular valve leaflets to the papillary muscles (Leeson, Augustine,…
