Bilirubin enters the blood circulation and is transported to the _____.
Within the liver, bilirubin is secreted by liver cells into _____, which passes into the small intestine and then into the large intestine.
Oxygen delivery may fail in other cases such as anemia, which has many causes:

Keep in mind that all types of anemia are characterized by reduced numbers of _______ or decreased amounts of ________in the blood.
Pt. feels fatigued
Skin appears pale
aplastic anemia usually results from exposure to ______ that inhibit enzymes needed for ______
Initially platelets migrate to the site of injury and stick to parts of the damaged b.v. This process is called
If blood clots too easily, the result can be ______, clotting in an undamaged b.v..
3rd Stage of clotting-Thrombin converts soluble fibrinogen (another plasma protein formed by the liver) into insoluble ___
cardiac muscle: forms the walls of the atria and ventricles
occurs when CA ions floods into the cytoplasm and binds to the thin filament; CA is the trigger for the contraction.1 Cross bridge formation – myosin attaches to actin Powerstroke – myosin head pulls actin filament toward M line. Cross bridge detachment - ATP attaches to myosin head and the cross bridge detaches Cocking of the myosin head – energy from the hydrolysis of ATP to ADP cocks the myosin head into the high energy state
Relaxed state of muscles = thin and thick filaments overlap slightly
1) Acetylcholinesterase breaks down Acetylcholine 2) Cal++ pump is activated and Ca++ is returned to the Terminal Cisternae of the Sarcoplasmic Reticulum 3) Actin – myosin crossbridge formation is terminated
4) Tropomyosin returns to the Actin binding site. 5) Sarcomeres return to resting state
all cells, at rest, exhibit a potential difference across their membranes
-Resting Membrane potential generated by diff in concentrations of various ions on either side of the membrane (K and Na) both influence ionic concentration gradients
-Na: comes from inside cell to go out
-K: comes from outside cell to go in
-Both meet at pump to create ATP
Action potential generated spreads along the sacrolemma and down T tubules. 2 Action Potential triggers Ca2+ release. 3 Calcium ions bind to troponin; actin active sites exposed. 4 Contraction; release of energy by ATP hydrolysis powers the cycling process.5 Removal of Ca2+ by re-uptake. 6 Tropomyosin blockage restored; contraction ends and muscle fiber relaxes
The origin of a muscle is on a stationary bone (usually proximal bones)
-The insertion of a muscle is on the bone that moves (usually distal bones)
-When muscles contract, the muscle’s insertion moves toward the immovable bone, the muscle’s origin.
hollow, elongated tube at the level of each Z Disc and runs betweenterminal cisternae
- Responsible for rapidly conducting nerve impulses to sarcomeres andbringing extracellular materials to deeper parts of muscle fiber
found during anaerobic exercise bc needs to be processed through oxygen; is converted into lactic acid
by-product of glycolysis- releases H+; occurs from muscle fatigue; during recovery period liver converts lactic acid to glucose. 5
muscle shortens because muscle tension exceeds the load
concentric and eccentric contractions; equal tension through out a contraction.
Refers to when a muscle produces the same amount of tension throughout contraction event.
Different length throughout the contraction but same tension.
no shortening; muscle tension increases but does not exceed the load
muscle doesn't change length.
Muscle gets tension
Magnitude of tension=to opposition, no movement produced.
Holds joints steady while moving
(Isotonic) the muscle shortens and does work;
muscle shortens in length during contraction.
Muscle can produce more tension than the opposition
A concentric contraction is the only way a muscle can cause movement
they cause movement
dark fibers, high blood supply, high myoglobin, high mitochondria,fewer sarcoplasmic reticulum, have oxygen carrying pigment, fibers contract for long periods without fatiguing. Marathon runners. Aerobic ATP generation
