  1. The Cardiovascular System and Assessment

  2. Learning Outcomes • Describe the structure and function of the heart and vascular systems. • Discuss the mechanical and electrical properties of the heart.

  3. Learning Outcomes • Identify subjective and objective assessment data to collect for patients with cardiovascular disorders. • Identify nursing responsibilities for common diagnostic tests and monitor for patients with cardiovascular disorders.

  4. The Heart • Structure of the heart • Covered by pericardium • Parietal • Visceral (epicardium) • Epicardium • Outer heart layer • Myocardium • Middle heart layer

  5. Figure 15-2. The internal anatomy of the heart.

  6. The Heart • Structure of the heart • Endocardium • Inner layer • Four hollow chambers • Two upper, atria • Two lower, ventricles • Divided by septum and atrioventricular (AV) valves

  7. The Heart • Structure of the heart • Right atrium • Deoxygenated blood from superior and inferior vena cava • Into right ventricle, then pulmonary artery • Separated from right ventricle by tricuspid valve

  8. The Heart • Structure of the heart • Left atrium • Oxygenated blood from lungs through pulmonary veins • Out of aorta to systemic circulation • Separated from left atria by bicuspid or mitral valve

  9. Figure 15-3. Pulmonary and systemic circulation. The right side of the heart receives deoxygenated venous blood from the body and pumps it into the pulmonary circulation. The left side of the heart receives oxygenated blood from the pulmonary system and pumps it out to the peripheral circulation.

  10. The Heart • Structure of the heart • Semilunar valves connect ventricles to great vessels. • Right—pulmonary valve • Left—aortic valve • S1 ("lub") sound • AV valves close as ventricles contract • S2 ("dub") sound • Semilunar valves close

  11. The Heart • Structure of the heart • Coronary circulation • Blood to heart muscle • Left and right coronary arteries originate at base of aorta, encircle myocardium. • Cardiac veins • Drain blood into coronary sinus • Empty into right atrium of heart

  12. The coronary arteries.

  13. The Heart • Conduction system • Electrical impulse, contraction without stimulation by nervous system • Sinoatrial (SA) node • Impulse • Travels through internodal pathways to AV node • Passes through bundle of His

  14. The Heart • Conduction system • Impulse • Continues through right and left bundle branches • Out to Purkinje fibers in ventricular muscle walls • Action potential caused by movement of ions across cell membranes • Polarized (negative) • Depolarized (positive)

  15. The Heart • Conduction system • All-or-nothing response • Repolarization immediately after depolarizaition • Refractory period • Cell resists stimulation • Protects heart from spasm, tetany

  16. The cardiac conduction system.

  17. The Heart • Cardiac cycle • Diastole • Ventricular filling • Systole • Ventricles eject blood

  18. The Heart • Cardiac output • Stroke volume (SV) • Volume of blood ejected with each contraction • Cardiac output (CO) • Amount of blood pumped by ventricles in one minute • CO = HR × SV

  19. The Heart • Cardiac output • Cardiac reserve • Heart rate • Preload • Starling's law of the heart • Afterload • Contractility • Natural ability of cardiac muscle fibers to shorten during systole

  21. Figure 15-6. The cardiac cycle. (A) Ventricular filling occurs during diastole (relaxation); (B) blood is pumped out of the heart to thepulmonary and systemic circulation during ventricular systole (contraction).

  22. The Peripheral Vascular System • Network of blood vessels that carry blood to peripheral tissues and return it to the heart • Arteries • Veins • Capillaries

  23. Structure of arteries, veins, and capillaries.

  24. Arteries and Veins • Arteries • Carry blood away from heart • Divide into arterioles • Feed into beds of capillaries within organs, tissues • Veins • Carry blood toward heart • Venules feed into veins.

  25. Arteries and Veins • Blood vessel structure • Layers • Tunica intima • Tunica media • Tunica externa • Veins have thinner walls. • Capillaries contain only one layer of tunica intima.

  26. Arterial Circulation • Blood flow • Amount of blood transported • Peripheral vascular resistance (PVR) • Force of opposing blood flow • Determined by: • Blood viscosity • Vessel length • Vessel diameter

  27. Arterial Circulation • Blood pressure (BP) • Force exerted by blood against wall of arteries • Systolic • Force exerted as heart contracts • Diastolic • Force exerted when heart is filling • Optimally less than 120/80 mm Hg in adults

  28. Arterial Circulation • Factors affecting CO and PVR • Sympathetic nervous system • Parasympathetic stimulation • Kidneys • Temperatures • Chemicals, hormones, and drugs

  29. Assessment • Health history • Chest pain • Shortness of breath (SOB) • Leg pain • Pillows to sleep • Medications • Lifestyle • Diet, alcohol use, exercise, smoking, drugs

  30. Assessment • Physical examination • General appearance • Skin • Wounds • Pulses • Jugular vein distention • Edema • Breathing

  31. The Older Adult • Subcutaneous tissue lost • Skin turgor more accurately assessed over sternum • Many experience early heartbeats. • Rate remains basically regular. • Increased incidence of chronic disease, medication use

  32. Diagnostic Tests • Laboratory tests • Lipid profile • C-reactive protein • Serum cardiac markers • Serum cardiac hormones • Electrocardiography • Record of heart's electrical activity • Continual or intermittent based on patient needs

  33. Diagnostic Tests • Imaging techniques • Sonography • Echocardiography • Transesophageal echocardiogram (TEE) • Stress echocardiogram • Vascular ultrasound • Radiography • Chest, abdominal x-rays

  34. Diagnostic Tests • Imaging techniques • Angiography • Cardiac catheterization • CT scans • MRI

  35. Diagnostic Tests • Imaging techniques • Nuclear scans • Multigated acquisition (MUGA) scan • Exercise perfusion imaging or stress tests
