Description

the fluid portion of the blood plasma
red blood cells erythrocytes
the oxygen-transporting pigment of erythrocytes hemoglobin
white blood cell leukocytes
a white blood cell with secretory granules in its cytoplasm (ex. eosinophil/basophil) granulocytes
the most abundant of the white blood cells neutrophils
granular white blood cells whose granules readily take up a stain called eosin eosinophils
white blood cells whose granules stain deep blue with basic dye; have a relatively pale nucleus and granular-appearing cytoplasm basophils
white blood cells with a one-lobed nucleus. no granules in cytoplasm agranuloctyes
agranular white blood cells formed in the bone marrow that mature in the lymphoid tissue lymphocytes
large single-nucleus white blood cell; agranular leukocyte monocytes
one of the irregular cell fragments of blood; involved in clotting platelets
formation of blood cells hematopoiesis
stem cells that give rise to all the formed elements of the blood hemocytoblast
the stopping of a flow of blood hemostasis
the stout wall separating the lower chambers of the heart from one another interventricular septum
begins at the base of the right ventricle, branches into two pulmonary arteries which deliver deoxygenated blood to the corresponding lung pulmonary trunk
bicuspid and tricuspid atrioventricular valves
cord-like tendons that connect the papillary muscles to the tricuspid valve and the mitral valve in the heart (heart strings) chordae tendineae
lub dub, lub dub heart sounds
a condition in which the heart produces or is apt to produce a recurring sound indicative of disease or damage murmur
abnormally high blood pressure hypertension
a disease of the arteries characterized by the deposition of plaques of fatty material on their inner walls atherosclerosis
the membranous sac enveloping the heart pericardium
a chamber of the heart receiving blood from the veins; superior heart chambers atria
discharging chambers of the heart ventricles
system of blood vessels that carry blood to and from the lungs for gas exchange pulmonary circulation
major systemic artery; arises from the left ventricle of the heart aorta
systems of blood vessels that carries nutrient- and oxygen-rich blood to all the body organs systemic circulation
valves that prevent blood return to the ventricles after contraction semilunar valves
the contraction phase of heart activity systole
a period (between contractions) of relaxation of the heart during which it fills with blood diastole
a volume of blood ejected by a ventricle during systole stroke volume
sequence of events encompassing one complete contraction and relaxation of the atria and ventricles of the heart cardiac cycle
