Questioncompo Answer

purpose of heart pump blood through the body
purpose of blood transport oxygen, nutrients and waste throughout the body
purpose of blood vessels roads for blood to travel
how does the heart contract? AV Node–>Internodal Pathways –>AV Node –>Bundle of HIS
what side of the heart is the PULMONIC side Rt Side
Which side of the heart receives de-oxygenated blood? Rt side

Pulmonic Side
What is the name of the left side of the heart Systemic Side
What does deoxygenated mean? without oxygen
Who pumps oxygenated blood out to the body? Lt Side

Systemic Side
The amount of blood pumped out of the heart is the: Stroke Volume
The rate at which the heart pumps is the: Heart Rate
Stroke Volume + Heart Rate = Cardiac Output
2 elements of blood plasma

formed elements
what makes up the formed elements erythrocytes


purpose of erythrocytes carry oxygen
purpose of leukocytes fight infection
purpose of thrombocytes clot blood so you won't bleed out
carry blood away from the heart arteries
carry blood to the heart veins
