Circulatory System

Circulatory System is the category for questions about the human circulatory system, including questions about the human heart, arteries, and veins.
The heart circulates both oxygenated and deoxygenated blood butalong different paths - the human heart has 4 chambers which enableit to do this.
RH factor in blood types stands for "Rhesus Factor". Blood testswere performed on Rhesus monkeys and the Rh+ and Rh- factors wereisolated. An antigen found in the red blood cells of most people:those who have Rh factor are said to be Rh positive (Rh+), whilethose who do not are Rh negative (Rh-)....
You can think of blood as a combination of (salt) water. proteins,and red blood cells.. The water carries everything that's water soluble. The proteins carry the fat soluble stuff. And the RBC's carry oxygen.
they increase in size as we get older, so we can never tell.
bright red blood will enter the bottle under pressure
The blood is able to move to and from the heart through thecontraction of the heart muscle. These contractions build uppressure and cause you to have what is commonly known as bloodpressure. That build up of pressure pushes the blood throughoutthe arteries and veins and enables it to circulate...
Oxygenated blood is the blood remaining after the oxygen intake bythe body from the blood. And than oxygenated blood goes to Lungsand heart with enrich with oxygen for the body.
Veins that draw blood from the brain are called dural venous sinuses. They receive oxygen-poor blood from the brain and pass it on to either the sigmoid sinus or the inferior petrosal sinus, which then pass the blood to the internal jugular vein, in the neck.
The autonomic nervous system ( ANS )is a division of the peripheral nervous system that influences the function of internal organs . [1] The autonomic nervous system is a control system that acts largelyunconsciously and regulates bodily functions such as the heart rate , digestion , ...
No immunoglobulins (Igs) provide that! That is because Igs or antibodies are in blood tissue and circulated all over blood and immune system. The mucous membrane and skin are actually functioning as a physical barrier preventing invading microbes.
1. You are moving at a fast pace so your whole body needs oxygen faster.
Genotype (DNA) . Blood Type . (+, -) or (+ , +). Rh+.
Absolutely not. Blood tests exist so that couples will not be at risk for HIV, AIDS or other diseases.
A reticulate red blood cell, or reticulocyte, is an immature redblood cell. In mammals, reticulocytes do not have a nucleus. Theyare slightly larger and appear more blue in colour (with standardstain) than mature red blood cells. A nucleated red blood cell is one which contains a nucleus....
Dorsalis pedis artery. It is located on the top of the foot.
Both age and physical fitness can have an effect on heart rate. Insimple terms, the heart is a giant muscle. If you go through yourlife without working out, then this muscle will have to work harderto get its work done, which is helping to supply oxygen to the restof the body. Working out, increases...
I think it's time for me and you have no idea what I'm talking to my friends are like that you are the same thing to say up with the best yet another example is not the best of the year
It varies based on age & gender, but no that is a very normal number
arteries carry red blood (oxygen), veins carry blue blood (no oxygen), i don't think that blood carries CO2,
the heart pumps oxygenated blood round the body so that the muscles get oxygen to help them be used in energetic exercises
The components of the circulatory system include the heart, blood,and blood vessels. The pulmonary circulation is also part of thiscomplex system.
the white blood cells could attack the red blood cells and ahorrible collision could occur
A mass of clotted blood is called a hematoma.
Human body has many defense mechanisms against foreign pathogens.These mechanisms are divided into two groups, the specificmechanisms and non-specific mechanisms. The main leukocytes usuallyproliferate and participate in the inflammatory response againstbacterial infections neutrophils. In this type...
Yes. Blood type is determined by the antigens present on the surfaces ofred blood cells. There are three types of antigen, A, B and Rhesus.O blood types have neither A or B antigens. A types have A, B haveB, and AB have both. Positive blood types have rhesus antigens, andnegative blood types do not....
There is a greater risk of infections.
Generally within minutes.
An infection would increase a person's white blood cell count.
Trisomy of chromosome 12 is one of the most frequent cytogeneticabnormalities in karyotype chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). Ahigh incidence deviation in B-cell CLL is the deletion ofchromosome 13 (13q14) is detected using modern diagnostic methodssuch as Southern blot hybridization, and...
The wall of the ventricles is thicker than the walls of the atriaas they have to be stronger as they have to pump the blood aroundthe body where as the atria only have to pump blood into theventricles
People having the blood group AB positive are called 'universalacceptor' because both anti-A and anti-B antibodies, as well asanti-D antibodies are absent in there blood circulation. Hence,these people generally face no chances of agglutination whentransfused with blood of whatever blood group.
There are multiple objects you can use to build a heart model,although building an actual heart is currently impossible. You canuse a bucket and different sizes on tubing to represent arteries,use plastic tube endings as valves. Building a hart takes a lot ofwork. However I would suggest a website...
No, AB Rh negative is the rarest blood type.
The alleles for Immunoglobulins are carried on autosomalchromosomes, not on sex chromosomes. Hence, both parents areequally responsible for a baby's blood type.
Pulmonary arteries are those which take deoxygenated blood from theRIGHT VENTRICLE to the lungs through the ALVEOLUS back to the LEFTATRIUM. The LEFT ATRIUM receives oxygenated blood from the lungsand is pumped by the heart to the LEFT VENTRICLE and then to therest of the body. It is ironic that...
Yes! They travel to the liver via the hepatic portal vein. Theliver detoxifies and sorts them out- amino acids are deaminated andsugars are stored. The non-soluble lipids are picked up by thelymph vessels (lacteals) in the villi.
No, that's not true. If you are a Rh- mother then yourimmune system will become sensitized by an Rh + baby and if youwere to have a second Rh+ baby without taking medication to controlthis then that baby would have a condition called fetalerythroblastosis.
The heart is asingle organ, but it functions as a double pump sendingoxygen-depleted blood to the lungs to pick-up oxygen and unloadcarbon dioxide, while simultaneously sending oxygen-loaded bloodcoming from the lungs to cells throughout the body. The heart'sright ventricle pumps blood to the lungs,...
I`m pretty sure that the answer is that the father has O negativeblood and the child`s blood took after the fathers. But my answercould be wrong
It is possible in the very rarest of cases when actually the Oparent is an A without producing the protein. In most cases,however, no.
Hemoglobin can be decreased in cases of: 1- Anemea (hypochromic) 2- Hemorrhage and trauma 3- Bone marrow depression
In sexual reproduction among animals fertilization of egg takesplace by forming an internal transfer of germ cell by the twoparents of opposite sex. When the germ cells fuse it forms zygote.
The heart is located in the middle of your sternum, slightlyshifted to the left in BOTH males and females.
O positive is the most common blood type making up about 38% of thepopulation.
Arteries and nerves have nothing in common with each other.Arteries carry oxygenated blood from the Heart to the body, whereas the nerves carry electrical impulses from the Brain. Arteriesand nerves are not hard to tell apart, nor are they easy to see.Nerves are microscopic so they are very hard to...
Yes. There are mixed personality types; no set of personality descriptions can fully describe YOU, a unique individual. For the most part, we all have a little bit of Type A and a little bit of Type B in us.
The blood supply of the scalp is via five pairs of arteries, threefrom the external carotid and twofrom the internal carotid : internal carotid the supratrochlear artery tothe midline forehead. The supratrochlear artery is a branch of theophthalmic branch of the internal carotid artery. the...
the small saphenous vein and and the anterior tibial vein
Arteries have the most thick and elastic walls causing them to havea smaller lumen. They have the most thick walls because they haveto withstand the high amounts of pressure as they carry oxygenatedblood. This is the reason they have no valves as their is no chanceof back flow of blood unlike veins.
The valves of the heart make specific sounds when operating normally and abnormally. By knowing the difference in sounds, one can determine the defect. For example, a normal heart makes a lub-dub sound upon each beat. The sound you hear is that of the valves opening and closing. If you hear a lub...
No - the genes required for the parents to have an O positive bloodtype make it impossible (except in the case of mutation) for themto have a child with any other blood type than O.
Blood groups have nothing to do with marriage or even sexualrelations. Blood groups come into play for transfusions andsometimes childbirth. It is important during times that largequantities of blood are being exchanged, because the body canreject certain types if they are not compatible.
Losing a lot of blood could lead to shock and possibly death.
capillaries have walls thin enough to allow the exchange ofmaterials between cells and the blood. Their extensive branchingprovides a sufficient surface area to pick up and deliversubstances to all cells in the body.
I would need more information (like what blood types the child'sgrandparents are) to narrow it down. The child could be: - A negative - A positive - AB negative - AB positive - B negative - B positive
The heart doesn't actually beat faster when it is sick. There are alot of things that could mean "sick" there is an entire branch ofmedicine developed around the heart and its diseases. However toanswer your question the heart just works extra hard/overtime tomaintain steady blood flow throughout...
Neither except in the case of the sodium potassium pump. Transportof "molecules" is by osmotic pressure at the capillary bed and byand concentration gradient/ diffusion at the actual cell membranes.
Arteries "feed" the capillaries while veins drain the capillaries.
The main functions of the heart are to use its muscles and pump blood around the body to have the oxygen and carbon dioxide in the cells so we can inhale and exhale correctly.
tunica advetitia, tunica media,tunica intima *from outer to inner.
Other way around. Valves appear in veins to keep the blood flowing in one direction to the heart.
There are many that include such diseases as lupus
Some organs, where very small blood vessels like capillaries canonly transport blood to and where the artery and vein are too bigto reach
The word vascular means blood vessels,the vascular system in thebody includes all of the veins and arteries.
The "mediastinum" is the part of the thoracic cavity between thelungs that contains the heart, aorta, esophagus, trachea andthymus.
The four chambers of the heart are connected through tissues, justlike any other muscles in the body.
the parents who say their child has been lost should have their blood test taken in order to find out their blood groups and all the lost childrens blood group should be taken. continuous study should be carried out to find whether the parents were hetrozygous or homozygous and all possiblities...
Most people do know that smoking, obesity and excessive alcohol use are adverse to the cardiovascular system, but repeating this information in a positive (not guilt producing) way is helpful.
yes, but if they stop doing their job, you can die.
Your heart pumps blood throughout your body.
An earthworm does not have a heart. But, it possess an organ calledan aortic arch that performs similar functions of the heart.
To be considered a universal donor, a person must have Type O blood. Though even with this blood type, there is a possibility of a reaction with the recipients anti-A and anti-B antibodies.
No. Depending on the father's alleles (he could be be AA or AO) the child could be A or O.
We are looking for the possible blood types of a baby. Parental information: . Mother type A -- can be AA or AO = contributes the A or Ogene . Father type O -- can only be OO = contributes the O gene Baby receives one gene from each parent: . Baby is type AO . Baby is type OO Generally speaking,...
