Human Physiology The Transport System Notes

This is a sample of our (approximately) 5 page long Human Physiology The Transport System notes, which we sell as part of the Human Physiology Notes collection, a Grade 7 package written at The British International School, Ho Chi Minh in 2013 that contains (approximately) 32 pages of notes across 6 different documents.

Human Physiology The Transport System Revision

The following is a plain text extract of the PDF sample above, taken from our Human Physiology Notes. This text version has had its formatting removed so pay attention to its contents alone rather than its presentation. The version you download will have its original formatting intact and so will be much prettier to look at.

HUMAN PHYSIOLOGY The Transport System Transported by blood around the body





Waste products(Carbon Dioxide , Heat and Urea)

Blood composed of : Plasma (55%) and Cells (45% : Erythrocytes, Leucocytes and Platelets)

6.2.1 Draw and label a diagram of the heart showing the four chambers, associated blood vessels, valves and the route of blood through the heart

Heart Valves

Vales maintain a one way flow of blood.

Atrio-ventricular vales open to let blood flow from atria to the ventricles.

The atrio-ventricular valves close to prevent a back flow of blood into the atria.

Semi-lunar valves open to allow high pressure blood to pulse into the arteries.

Semi-lunar valves close to prevent black flow of blood into the ventricles form arteries.

Left atrio-ventricular valve = Bicuspid valve

Right atrio-ventricular valve = Tricuspid valve
