Why does the heart pump blood through the body?
The heart pumps blood around the body because it carries oxygen and glucose to the brain, without them a person will loose consciousness. Muscles need oxygen, glucose, amino acids, sodium, calcium and potassium salts in order to contract normally, these are all carried through the blood in our bodies from the foods we eat and the air we breathe.
Without blood circulating the body, it begins to shut down and after a very short period of time will die.

The ventricles are the two lower chambers of the heart. The right ventricle pumps de-oxygenated blood to the lungs to drop off carbon-dioxide and pick up oxygen. The left ventricle pumps oxygenated blood to the rest of the body and is the strongest chamber
The left ventricle is the heart chamber that pumps blood throughoutthe body. The right ventricle, in contrast, pumps blood to thelungs.
The Heart pumps your blood around your body because if it didn't you would die. You would die, because blood creates energy around your body, and if a certain part (let's say it's the leg) doesn't get enough blood there, it would fall asleep, and eventually fall off. Do you want your leg to fall off…? No. If too many parts fall off, you die. (MORE)
well the blood is pumped into your body with the red blood cells which cause the body to pump. the oxygen exhales and carbon dioxide inhales
When you become active, you need more of oxygen and nutrition for muscle cells. So heart pumps more blood to meet the requirement.
The right side of your heart pumps the blood through your body while the left cleans the bad blood (blood without oxygen).
The left ventricle is pumped and oxygen rich blood flows through the aorta which then flows to the many arteries of the body.
Yes, the heart does pump blood to the body. The heart pumps blood away from it and to the body through arteries, and then the blood comes back to the heart through veins (If you need this information for a quiz, an easy way to remember this is: arteries: away, and so obviously veins: to the heart).
the left side. particularly the left ventricle because its connected directly to the aorta. as a result of this, the left ventricle is the most muscular part of the heart.
The heart squeezes the blood out (valves keep it from going backwards) into the large arteries. The arteries are elastic (like long, skinny balloons). How much flows out at the other ends depends on how many capillaries are open at any given time. They open and close depending on the (partial) press…ure of oxygen locally. the blood flows from there back to the heart via veins. The pulmonary side is about the same, but all the capillaries are always open and so the working pressure is much lower. Note that the systemic side controls flow. (MORE)
Blood is pumped through the body by the heart by two different circuits, one of the circuits in the systemic circuit and the second circuit is the pulmonary circuit. The system circuit, starts via the left atrium and passing the mitral valve down into the left ventricle. The ventricle will then con…tract shortly after the atria have started relaxing and followed by the closing of the atrioventricular valves, so blood does not back wash into the atrium. Pressure will becoming higher in the left ventricle allowing ventricular systole's second phase to begin by forcing blood through the aortic semilunar valve up into the aorta so blood may reach the rest of the tissues in the body. Afterwards, the ventricles will becoming diastoling (relaxing) and pressure is now higher in the aorta then it is within the ventricles and this will cause back flow of blood back down to the ventricles but the aortic semilunar valve is has shut itself so blood may not backwash back into the ventricles. During this time, blood will be slowly returning back into the left atrium by ventricular diastole second phase & atrial systole but do note that the atrioventricular valves are still closed so blood doesn't wash into the ventriculars. Blood will travel through arteries then to arterioles and lastly to capillaries so it may begin a gas exchange of oxygenated blood to the tissues to unoxygenated blood back to the heart, via the capillaries, venules, veins then superior & inferior vena cava. Next is the pulmonary circuit which it will return the deoxygenated blood into the right atrium via the superior/inferior vena cava down the tricuspid valve to the right ventricle and blood will be forced up into pulmonary trunk via the pulmonary semilunar valve to the pulmonary arteries via the ventricular systole (same exact process as systemic circuits.) It will then travel towards the lungs, via the ateries then arterioles and capillaries once again but this time the capillaries with run along aveoli which are air sac's of the lungs that control the gas exchange between our atmosphere's....So, as you breath out you are going to be releasing the carbon dioxide from the tissues that were collected from those veins and transported via the arteries but as you breath in. oxygen will be inhaled back into the aveoli and will now allow oxygenated blood to return it back into the pulmonary venules then to the pulmonary veins to return back to the heart so it may re-enter back into left atrium and pass the mitral valve into the left ventricle via ventricular systole and back through the aortic semilunar valve to the aorta and to the rest of the bodies tissue.

The left side of the heart pumps blood to the body. The right sideof the heart receives the oxygen depleted blood from the body andsends it to the lungs. The left side then gets the oxygen enrichedblood from the lungs and sends it out into the rest of the body.
Yes, the heart, along with the valves, arteries and veins, allowblood to flow through your body. The more you exercise, thestronger your heart will be.
\nIt is necessary for blood to pump through your body because it keeps you alive. It sends the blood to your organs and keeps them from failing.
Veins carry deoxygenated (blood lacking oxygen) blood back to the heart. Arteries carry oxygenated (blood with oxygen in) blood away from the heart and around the body.
The blood flows through the heart by: . Going through an atrium which leads to a ventricle . Then from the ventricle, it goes to a blood vessel hwich leads to the heart . A wall between the two atriums or the two ventricles keeps the blood rich in oxygen and separates it from blood with little ox…ygen. (You only really need #1 and #2 to answer the question) (MORE)
Hmmm... well if the heart didnt plump blood thru our body we woukd be dead... no!! it dosent!! wat do u think?!?!?!?!?!?!?!
The Isolated Iternal Cells Have A Rhthym Muscle cells give the heart its ability to pump blood.
the heart pumps blood to the aorta which distributes it to the rest of the body.
The aorta.. The left ventricle pumps te blood into the aorta, the largest artery, which distributes it to the body.
Nothing really happens to the blood as it is pumped through the heart. The blood just gets redirected and sent to a location in the body.
its part of the circulatory system that the heart pumps blood to all parts of the body
first of all.... the heart lets ur whole body move.. A: So you can live..

Our heart pumps blood around our body because... when we breath in oxygen it travels down our windpipe and into our lungs where it flows into our blood stream which the heart pumps round and to our muscles with are supplied with the oxygen which it needs to keep going! few, its a long story!
The left side of the heart supplies blood to the body through the aorta, the largest artery in the body. The right side of the heart sends blood to the lungs for oxygenation.
The Aorta, the main artery. It leaves the heart from the left ventricle and delivers oxygen rich blood to the body.
Oxygenated blood flows from the lungs by pulmonary arteries and veins into the right atria and ventricle which then flows through the aortic semilunar valve into the aorta to the rest of the body which then flows back into the heart through veins and arteries into the left atria and ventricle and ba…ck into the lungs and the process repeats.

Though both ventricles of the heart pump blood out of the heart and into the body, I assume you're talking about the chamber that pumps blood to the capillaries of the head and arms or abdominal organs and legs. This would be the left ventricle, which receives oxygenated blood from the left atrium a…nd sends it through the aorta to supply the body's systems with oxygen. (MORE)
The left ventricle (being the largest and strongest muscular partof the heart) does the heavy job of pumping blood out to the body(through the aorta, the largest blood vessel).
when doing exercise you need oxygen in your muscles so the blood pumps oxygenated blood around your body quicker to keep the oxygen levels up and make sure there is food at the muscles in the form of glucose
After being oxygenated in the lungs, the blood enters the left atrium via the pulmonary veins. The left ventricle pumps the oxygenated blood to the rest of the body via the aorta. Blood cells carry oxygen, and the liquid portion of the blood, called plasma, carries the nutrients needed by the cells …to perform their life functions. As oxygen enters the body cells, carbon dioxide, as a waste product from cellular respiration, diffuses into the blood, which returns to the right atrium of the heart via the superior and and inferior vena cavae, and is pumped to the lungs to be oxygenated via the right ventricle. As blood travels through the body, nutrients from the plasma enter the cells, and cell waste products enter the plasma. The liver and the kidneys cleanse the plasma portion of the blood, and nutrients are replenished via the small intestine. The plasma portion of the blood also carries hormones throughout the body, which are secreted by endocrine glands into the blood. (MORE)
The left ventricle propels blood through the aortic valve into the aorta, which branches to carry blood all over the body.
What valves are open during the process where the blood is pumped from the heart to the body through the aorta?
the four valves in the heart are -tricuspid -pulmonary semi-lunar -bicuspid -aortic semi-lunar the aortic semi-lunar is valve the blood flows through when the described circumstance occurs but both of the semi-lunar valves open and close at the same time because both ventricles pump simultaneously
yes it is. the blood travels through tubes in the body called vessels. there are 4 types of vessel but i can't be bothered listing them!!!the smallest is the capillary vessel
(Just guessing to the best of my ability.) Because without blood circulation your body would become stiff, and start to rot away. Basically, your body needs to pump blood so all of your organs will continue to function and to keep your body from just stiffening up and becoming a chunk of dead mea…t. (MORE)
For a person at rest, it takes just about one minute. If you are more active, it will take less time. Exactly how long depends on several things: the rate at which your heart beats, how big your heart is, and, to a certain extent, how big you are as well. A person's heart beats about 65 to 75 times …a minutes. This is called the beat rate. With each beat, the heart pumps about 60 to 70 milliliters of blood. If you multiply the two values together, you find that the cardiovascular output is just about four to five liters per minute. . (MORE)
Because the left side of the heart receives the freshly oxygenated blood from the lungs and is connected to the aorta which is your largest artery and delivers all that oxygenated blood to the rest of the body.
Veins carry blood towards the heart. The particular veins thatcarry deoxygenated blood from the body to the right atrium of theheart are the superior vena cava and inferior vena cava. Thepulmonary veins carry oxygenated blood from the lungs into the leftatrium.
Which valves are open during this process of which the blood is pumped from the heart to the body through the aorta?
During ventricular systole both ventricles contract, forcing the blood out of them and into another vessel. The left ventricle is the one that provides blood to the rest of the body. As it contracts, the high pressure causes the aortic semilunar valve to open, and blood travels through it to the aor…ta. (MORE)
Yes. Just like any other animal that has a heart, the function of a frogs heart is to pump blood to all of its body's tissues.
A very simplistic explanation: If we start with the aorta (the biggest artery in the body), the oxygenated blood from the heart travels through this around the entire body and supplies oxygen, nutrients, etc. The deoxygenated blood then travels back to the heart via the venous systems and enters th…e left atrium. From the left atrium it travels to the left ventricle and is pumped by this ventricle through the pulmonary arteries (don't be deceived by the name here - the blood is still deoxygenated), to the lungs where it picks up oxygen. The oxygenated blood then travels back to the heart through the pulmonary veins and enters the right atrium. It then travels into the right ventricle and the ventricle pumps the blood into the aorta and the cycle repeats. Essentially you have two closed loops. (MORE)
there are two types of veins that pump blood in and out of the heart and those veins keep on splitting up and it goes threw your lungs and everywhere though the body
blood enters the left atrium from the lungs via the pulmonary artery and exits the left ventricle to go around the rest of the body.
no it doesnt or you would be breathing in blood and that makes no sense.
Your brain sends a signal to your heart creating magnetic pulses onto the feet and exploding out of the heart killing every human and alien life around you, turning them into zombies -sorry mate
The heart and body will no longer pump blood throughout the body without the brain to give commands to do so.Without a brain the body will no longer know how to eat,breathe,move or talk.technically speaking,without a brain the body will shut down and die.
Through the Aorta and arteries that later branches into arterioles. I am not in front of my book so... Good luck.
The heart acts as a powerful pump to push the blood through theveins, arteries & capillaries to carry oxygen & sugar tofuel the muscles & organs that keep us alive; then carries thedepleted blood to the lungs to pick up oxygen & the intestinesto replenish the sugar
Humans: blood enters the right atrium, collects, get dumped into the right ventrical, gets pumped to the lungs, collects in the left aurical (atrium), gets dumped into the left ventrical, guts pumped into the aorta (a blood vessel) and to the body! Figure it out.
