  • Cerebrospinal Fluid Research Paper

    which is a structure in the ventricles of the brain. The viscosity of the Cerebrospinal fluid is similar to the blood plasma. It produces approximately 500 ml each day and provides a fundamental mechanics and immunological protection to the brain and inside the bone. Cerebrospinal fluid spread all through the brain in the…

    capillaries) (Martini, 548). Moreover, the bodily fluid that flows inside these structures is blood and it has traveled from all parts of the body. The heart is a complex organ that contains four chambers the left atria, right atria, left ventricle and right ventricle which pump the blood throughout the body. (Martini, Tallitsch and Timmons, 550). Furthermore, within the heart, are four valves called the tricuspid valve, the pulmonary valve, the mitral valve and the aortic valve which is…

  • Left Ventricular Non Compaction

    At approximately four weeks gestation, the ventricles begin to develop luminal projections known as trabeculations. These spongy collections of trabeculations serve to increase the surface contact of the ventricular lumen and myocytes as myocardial mass increases prior to the development of the coronary…

  • Four Layers Of The Heart Essay

    (Anatomy of the Heart, 2015). The heart is oddly shaped, almost oval at the bottom but with a series of veins and arteries at the top and sides. It definitely is not “heart” shaped. It is made up of four chambers consisting of two atria (upper) and two ventricles (lower). These chambers are separated into right and left side by the septum, which is a wall of muscle. The four layers of the heart are the pericardium, epicardium, myocardium, and endocardium (Ireland, 2012). It can weigh between…

  • The Importance Of The Pacemaker

    with the beat of your heartrate. There are 4 different types of arrhythmias, premature which is when you get extra beats (the most common type), Supraventricular tachycardia is when your heart beats too fast, ventricular rhythm issues can halt the ventricle from pumping blood into your body (this could result in cardiac arrest), and Bradycardia is when your heart beats too slow meaning not enough blood gets to your brains sometimes meaning you could pass out. If someone is unlucky to have…

  • The Human Heart: A General Description

    upside down pear with arteries and veins branching from its upper and lower regions. On the inside, the heart is separated into four chambers. The upper two chambers are the right and left atria and the lower two chambers are the right and left ventricles.…

    turn controls the rate in which the heart beats. The atrioventricular (AV) node later receives the electrical current and sends the current to the ventricles thru cells known as the AV bundle. This is the area that this victim had a blockage. When this system is healthy and functioning properly the electrical current flow is carried into both ventricles and a synchronized contraction is created this is known as the heart beat. The term cardiac arrhythmia is an irregular heartbeat, this victim…

  • Restrictive Cardiomyopathy Research Paper

    reduced diastolic volume of either [one] or both ventricles with normal or near normal systolic function and wall thickness.” There are many types of Cardiomyopathy, Restrictive cardiomyopathy is the least common type. The tell-tale sign of RCM is diastolic dysfunction. Diastolic dysfunction is when the heart does not fill up correctly, either too slowly or too quickly. This can occur in one or both ventricles, and the wall thickness of the left ventricle is usually increased. An…

  • Causes Of Congestive Heart Failure

    Congestive heart failure (CHF) is the condition in which the heart cannot pump blood the nutrients effectively to the body’s organs. Excessive fluid buildup is common in the lungs and/or other such organs and body parts. In many cases of congestive heart failure, the fluid builds up in the lowest part of the body such as the feet referred as pedal edema or the lower back known as sacral edema if the patient is bedridden. This swelling is caused when the heart slows and the blood begins to back…

  • Cardiac Arhythmia Case Study

    anterior-superior, left anterior-superior and the left posterior-inferior bundle branches that run along inter ventricular septum. The atria and the ventricles are functionally linked only by the AV node and the conduction system. From the SA node the impulse spreads over the atrial muscles causing atrial contraction. These electrical impulse blowouts into the ventricles, causing the muscle to contract and to pump blood to the lungs and body. Since the SA node suddenly generates action…
