III. and left ventricle (LV). under normal conditions. Anatomy and Physiology CARDIOVASCULAR SYSTEM A basic understanding of cardiac anatomy allows for correlation of physical exam finding with the unseen anatomy of the heart. The left ventricle is generally about twice as thick as the right ventricle because it needs to generate enough force to push blood through the entire body while the right ventricle only needs to generate enough force to push blood through the lungs. left atrium (LA). The adult heart is about the size of a closed fist and sits in the thorax on the left side of the chest in front of the lungs. acting together. The tricuspid valve is between the right atrium and right ventricles. The valves. insure that blood only flows in one direction in the heart. the heart is connecting to the vascular system of the body. arteries. PHYSIOLOGY: . arterioles. and then returns blood to the left atrium through the pulmonary veins (PV). upper chambers of the heart and the two ventricles are the larger. systemic capillaries. The heart also has four valves. and then returns blood to the right atrium through the venules and great veins. The mitral valve is between the left atrium and the left ventricle and the aortic valve is between the left ventricle and the aorta. The two atria are the smaller. The right side of the heart pumps blood to the lungs through the pulmonary artery (PA).right atrium (RA). pulmonary capillaries. The pulmonary valve is between the right ventricle and the pulmonary artery. The heart is designed as a pump with four chambers . The left side of the heart pumps blood to the rest of the body through the aorta. lower chambers of the heart. The heart is oriented in the chest rotated about 30 degrees to the left lateral side such the right ventricle is the most anterior structure of the heart. The cardiovascular system is actually made up of two major circulatory systems. In order to pump blood through the body. This cardiovascular system is designed to transport oxygen and nutrients to the cells of the body and remove carbon dioxide and metabolic waste products from the body. right ventricle (RV).

Essentials of anatomy and physiology 6th edition. When engaged in strenuous activities. the air is heated and moisturized before it is brought further into the body. Routing blood. Generating blood pressure. It is this part of the body that houses our sense of smell. with the average adult breathing about 12 to 20 times per minute. The valves of the heart ensure a one-way flow of the blood through the heart and blood vessels. It is the . Source: Seeley. 2007. 4. ANATOMY: Nostrils/Nasal Cavities During inhalation. This system is responsible for the mechanical process called breathing. which is required for blood flow through the blood vessels. The heart separates the pulmonary and systemic circulation. Sinuses The sinuses are small cavities that are lined with mucous membrane within the bones of the skull. RESPIRATORY SYSTEM The respiratory system is an intricate arrangement of spaces and passageways that conduct air from outside the body into the lungs and finally into the blood as well as expelling waste gasses. air enters the nostrils and passes into the nasal cavities where foreign bodies are removed. the rate and depth of breathing increases in order to handle the increased concentrations of carbon dioxide in the blood. Regulating blood supply. Pharynx The pharynx. and changes in the body position. 3. which ensures the flow of oxygenated blood to tissues. Ensuring one-way blood flow. Changes in the rate and force of heart contraction match blood flow to the changing metabolic needs of the tissues during rest. but can be consciously stimulated or inhibited as in holding your breath. Tate. Stephens. 2. or throat carries foods and liquids into the digestive tract and also carries air into the respiratory tract. McGrawHill Education. Larynx The larynx or voice box is located between the pharynx and trachea. exercise.1. Breathing is typically an involuntary process. Contractions of the heart generate blood pressure.

2. Air movement past the vocal cords makes sound and speech possible. The respiratory system provides protection against some microorganisms by preventing their entry into the body and by removing them from respiratory surfaces. which enter the lungs. the capacity to carry out normal activity is reduced.location of the Adam's apple. Bronchi The trachea divides into two parts called the bronchi. The respiratory system allows oxygen from the air to enter the blood and carbon dioxide to leave the blood and enter the air. Without healthy respiratory and cardiovascular systems. 5. 3. The cardiovascular system transports oxygen from the lungs to the cells of the body and carbon dioxide from the cells of the body to the lungs. and waste gasses are returned for elimination. The sensation of smell occurs when airborne molecules are drawn into nasal cavity. and without adequate respiratory and cardiovascular system functions. Innate immunity. It is here that the air we breathe is diffused into the blood. At the lungs. life itself is impossible. Bronchioles The bronchi subdivide creating a network of smaller branches. becoming progressively smaller as they branch through the lung tissue. Regulation of blood pH. Lungs The lungs are the organ in which the exchange of gasses takes place. which in reality is the thyroid gland and houses the vocal cords. Voice production. 4. Thus the respiratory and cardiovascular systems to work together to supply oxygen to all cells and to remove carbon dioxide. Alveoli The alveoli are tiny air sacks that are enveloped in a network of capillaries. Gas exchange. It is at the alveoli that gasses enter and leave the blood stream. PHYSIOLOGY: 1. Olfaction. Trachea The trachea or windpipe is a tube that extends from the lower edge of the larynx to the upper part of the chest and conducts air between the larynx and the lungs. with the smallest one being the bronchioles. until they reach the tiny air sacks of the lungs called the alveoli. The respiratory system can alter blood pH by changing blood carbon dioxide levels. . There are more than one million bronchioles in each lung. The lungs are made up of extremely thin and delicate tissues. the bronchi subdivides.

There are precipitating factors that predisposes the client to have community acquired pneumonia. and then the body responds to this invasion having the patient manifests the early signs and symptoms. chill. The microorganisms begin to invade the lower respiratory tract specifically in the alveoli. fluid and bacteria surrounding blood vessels fill the alveoli. Furthermore. . laboratories revealed an elevation or rising streptococcal antibody titer. an autoimmune reaction may occur in the heart tissue. Due to the invasion in the alveoli. because of the inflammation of the alveoli. a patient must manifest the criteria or guidelines for diagnosis of RHD.

Though patient does not have a history of rheumatic fever. In the case of patient ERA. she manifests or met 1 major and 3 minor which areas follow: Polyarthritis or migratory arthritis. the oxygen in the lungs is incapable to reach bloodstream-causing interruption of normal O2 transportation as a result the patient manifests persistence of signs and symptoms such as difficulty of breathing. fever. cough and colds.
