Circulatory system
Veins Veins are blood vessels that return blood to the heart from other parts of the body. The first change seen in shock is an increased cardiac output followed by a decrease in mixed venous oxygen saturation SmvO2 as measured in the pulmonary artery via a pulmonary artery catheter. Nearly one-forth of the blood that is pump into the Aorta by the Left Ventricle flows to the Kidneys. The post office called me to let me know it was leaking fertilizer, so I had it returned. This is normally very useful to match up blood supply level with tissue demand for nutrients. Your body needs more oxygen when you run. Your heart deserves to be loved for all the work it does.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. First let me say I am very happy with the unit. Setup is easy but takes considerable time to rinse growing media. The unit works perfectly. But here's what is not disclosed about the unit in its description: The growing media must be thoroughly rinsed before placing in the unit. If you don't have the time or desire to commit to this maintenance schedule than this is not for you.

There is also the minor costs involved with replacing nutrients. I generally like this thing. I bought it to grow varieties of chili peppers after learning that Aerogardens, as nice as they are, tend to be a bit small for growing more than one or two such plants.

I've had mine in use for three months now and am getting very good results. Coming from Aerogardens, the price is certainly right when you consider the growing capacity this offers. The downside, compared to Aerogardens is that you have to roll your own lighting solution, and while LED panels are easy to find and cheap, finding a way to mount them or hang them or The hardware feels solid, and given that the only moving part is the air pump, reliability seems to be a given.

I'd like a larger hole in the top to run a hose through for refilling, but you can easily remove one of the six panels for quick access.

The biggest ongoing logistical problem is draining and refilling this every days. The filled capacity is 13 gallons, which is well over pounds of water. It has been a learning experience. And the final piece that subtracts the fifth star: Aside from being large basically 2'x2'x2' and heavy figure pounds when full , it offers six fairly generous grow sites which nevertheless are a bit too closely spaced for growing six full sized pepper plants.

I am constantly having to trim my plants back to keep one from literally overshadowing another. At least the 6" net pots are large enough to accommodate some trellis systems to help support the plants. Unlike GH's single site "Power Grower," there is no spash from this drip system - the floor under and around this is perfectly dry.

The only change I've felt the need to make is the addition of an airstone. I just don't trust the air-pumped column to oxygenate the water enough.

This, of course, necessitated buying a new two-outlet air pump. I am seriously considering buying another. This system is amazing. I just started it up last weekend. It took very little time to get it running. Everything was included, except plants. There are four main blood vessels that take blood into and out of the heart.

The aorta is the largest artery in the body. It carries oxygenated blood away from the left ventricle to the body. The vena cava is the largest vein in the body. It carries deoxygenated blood from the body back to the heart. The pulmonary artery carries deoxygenated blood away from the right ventricle to the lungs. The pulmonary vein returns oxygenated blood from the lungs to the heart.

A rteries carry oxygenated blood a way from the heart except for the pulmonary artery which carries deoxygenated blood away from the right ventricle to the lungs. To aid in the disposal of all wastes from the body. To fight diseases by using white blood cells to fight off infection. Carry blood away from the heart always.

Have thick muscular walls 3. Have a pulse 4. Deep under the skin 5. Have no valves 6. Arteries branch at their ends, into tiny arterioles those then join capillaries. Carry blood to the heart. Have thin walls 3. Do not have a pulse 4. Near surface of the skin 5.

Have valves to stop back-flow of blood. Veins branch at their beginnings into tiny venules which join capillaries. Veins have valves which stop the blood from flowing backward. Compared to the arteries, pressure in the veins is very low. The blood is being pushed through the arteries as the heart squeezes the blood out. This is not true for the veins. Blood is pushed through the veins when body muscles contract and squeeze the veins.

In this way the blood moves. Have valves throughout the main veins of the body. These are to prevent blood flowing in the wrong direction, as this could in theory return waste materials to the tissues. Capillaries are small blood vessels acting as veins and arteries. They surround the body cells at the ends of the arteries and at the beginning of the veins.

The walls of capillaries are only one cell thick so substances Food or cells can easily get through them and into the blood or out. If all the capillaries of the body were set end to end they would be , km long!

The walls outer structure of arteries contain smooth muscle fibre that contract and relax under the instructions of the sympathetic nervous system. Arterioles are tiny branches of arteries that lead to capillaries.

These are also under the control of the sympathetic nervous system, and constrict and dilate, to regulate blood flow. There are networks of capillaries in most of the organs and tissues of the body. These capillaries are supplied with blood by arterioles and drained by venules.

Capillary walls are only one cell thick see diagram , which permits exchanges of material between the contents of the capillary and the surrounding tissue. Function is to supply tissues with components of, and carried by, the blood, and also to remove waste from the surrounding cells … as opposed to simply moving the blood around the body in the case of other blood vessels ;.

Exchange of oxygen, carbon dioxide, water, salts, etc. Venules are minute vessels that drain blood from capillaries and into veins. Many venules unite to form a vein. The walls outer structure of veins consist of three layers of tissues that are thinner and less elastic than the corresponding layers of aerteries.

Veins include valves that aid the return of blood to the heart by preventing blood from flowing in the reverse direction. The heart is located slightly to the left of the centre of your chest between the 2 lungs. It is made of cardiac muscle and is surrounded by a double membrane called the pericardium. There is fluid between these 2 membranes called pericardial fluid. This fluid helps to reduce friction when the heart beats.

The heart is about the size of a clenched fist. The human heart is primarily a shell. There are four cavities, or open spaces, inside the heart that fill with blood. Two of these cavities are called atria. The other two are called ventricles. The two atria form the curved top of the heart.
