  1. Chapter 20: The Heart BIO 211 Lecture Instructor: Dr. Gollwitzer

  2. Today in class we will discuss: • The heart and the heartbeat • The 2 types of cardiocytes (heart muscle cells) involved • The structure and characteristics of contractile cells • Structures of cardiac muscle tissue • The events of an action potential (AP) in cardiac muscle • AP of cardiac muscle compared to skeletal muscle • The role of calcium (Ca2+) ions in the contractile process • The components and functions of the conducting system of the heart

  3. Heart • Main function is to: • Receive blood from veins at low pressure, • Pump it through arteries at pressure high enough to get it through blood vessels and • Back to heart again • Heartbeat = single contraction of the heart • Entire heart contracts in specific sequence so that blood flows in right direction at right time • First the atria • Then the ventricles

  4. Heart and the Heartbeat • Contraction of atria first and then ventricles occurs because contractions of individual cardiac muscle cells that make up heart chambers occur in a specific sequence • Involves 2 types of cardiac muscle cells • Contractile cells • Produce contractions that move blood through heart • Conducting system cells • Control and coordinate contractile cells • Control and coordinate heartbeat

  5. Contractile Cells • Cardiocytes • 99% of muscle cells in heart • Make up most of atria and ventricle walls (myocardium) • Form branched network

  6. Cardiac Muscle Tissue • Myofibrils  striations • Thin filaments (actin) • Thick filaments (myosin) • Intercalated discs • Region in muscle tissue where membranes of adjacent cardiac muscle cells are interconnected • Transfer force of contraction from cell to cell • Have 2 types of cell junctions • Gap junctions • Allow ions and small molecules to move easily between cells • Form direct electrical connection between cardiocytes • Desmosomes • Interlock adjacent cardiac cells together to prevent cells from separating during contraction

  9. Review: Action Potential in a Neuron Table 12-3 8th Edition

  10. Contraction of Cardiac Muscle • Action potential (AP) • = Electrical impulse conducted by muscle fiber • Leads to appearance of Ca2+ among myofibrils • Ca2+ binds to troponin (muscle protein) on actin (thin filaments) • Initiates contraction

  11. Origin of AP in Cardiac Muscle • Resting membrane potential of ventricular contractile cell = -90 mV • Stimulus = excitation of cardiac muscle cell • Membrane of muscle cell brought to threshold (-75 mV) • Usually reached next to intercalated disc • AP begins

  12. Action Potential in Cardiac Muscle Fig. 20-15a

  13. Action Potential in Cardiac Muscle • Proceeds in 3 steps • Depolarization • Voltage-regulated fast Na+ channels open, Na+ rushes into cell • Na+ channels close when transmembrane potential reaches +30 mV • Plateau • As Na+ channels close, voltage-regulated slow Ca2+ channels open, Ca2+ enters cell • Provides 20% of Ca2+ required for contraction; 80% from SR • Transmembrane potential remains at 0 mV for extended period of time (during Ca2+ entry) • Ends with closure of slow Ca2+ channels • Repolarization • As Ca2+ channels close, slow K+ channels open • K+ leaves cells • Restores resting potential to -90mV

  14. Refractory Period • = Time after action potential begins when muscle will not respond normally to a second stimulus • Absolute refractory period • Time after AP when membrane absolutely cannot respond because Na+ channels opened/closed • Long in length • Lasts thru plateau and initial part of repolarization (approx. 200 msec) • Relative refractory period • = time following absolute refractory period when muscle can respond to stronger-than-normal stimulus • Shorter than absolute refractory period • Lasts thru repolarization (approx. 50 msec)

  15. Action Potentials in Cardiac and Skeletal Muscle Figure 20–15a, b

  16. Conducting System • Cardiac muscle contracts on its own • Autorhythmicity or automaticity • vs. neural/hormonal stimulation for skeletal muscle • System of specialized cardiac muscle cells • Initiate and distribute electrical impulses that stimulate contractions

  17. Conducting System • 3 Components to cardiac conduction (nodal) system • Sinoatrial (SA) node • Atrioventricular (AV) node • Conducting cells • From SA node to • Atrial myocardium • AV node along internodal pathways • From AV node to ventricular myocardium

  18. Figure 20-11a The Conducting System of the Heart Sinoatrial (SA) node Internodal pathways Atrioventricular (AV) node AV bundle Bundle branches Purkinje fibers Components of the conducting system

  19. Sinoatrial (SA) Node • In posterior wall of R atrium near entrance to superior vena cava • Contains cardiac pacemaker cells • Originate/generate action potential • Reach threshold first • Establish heart rate • Abnormal function • Tachycardia = heart rate faster than normal (>100 bpm) • Bradycardia = heart rate slower than normal (<50 bpm) • Connected to AV node by internodal pathways in atrial walls

  20. Atrioventricular Node • Larger than SA node • In floor of R atrium near opening of coronary sinus

  21. Conducting Cells • Smaller than contractile cells • Connect SA and AV nodes • Distribute contractile stimulus throughout myocardium • Atrial conducting cells • In internodal pathways in atrial walls • Distribute contractile stimulus to atrial muscle cells as impulse travels from SA node to AV node • Ventricular conducting cells • In IV septum • In AV bundle (bundle of His), L & R bundle branches and Purkinje fibers that distribute stimulus to ventricular myocardium

  22. Path of an Impulse from Initiation at SA Node to AV node • As AP passes from SA to AV node, conducting cells pass stimulus to contractile cells of both atria • AP then spreads across entire atria via cell-to-cell contact • Rate of propagation slows as impulse leaves internodal pathway • Nodal cells smaller in diameter than conducting cells • Connections between nodal cells less efficient • Results in delay at AV node • Important because atria must contract before ventricles

  26. AV Bundle, Bundle Branches, and Purkinje Fibers • Connection between AV node and AV bundle (aka Bundle of His) is only electrical connection between atria and ventricles • Fibrous skeleton around valves “insulates” other AV connections • When impulse enters AV bundle, it: • Travels to the interventricular septum • Enters the R and L bundle branches • Both bundle branches extend toward the apex of the heart and fan out deep into the endocardial surface • As branches diverge, they conduct impulse to: • Purkinje fibers • Papillary muscles of right ventricle • Purkinje fibers radiate from apex to base • Contraction of ventricles occurs as a wave that begins at the apex and spreads toward the base

  28. Fig. 20-13, Step 5

  29. Summary of Cardiac Conduction • Before each heart beat (contraction) • Action potential initiated spontaneously at SA node • Wave of depolarization radiates from SA node • Spreads through contractile cells of atrial myocardium • To AV node • Travels down IV septum to apex • Turns and spreads through contractile cells of ventricular myocardium to the base

  30. Today in class we will discuss: • The electrocardiogram • Important features of an electrocardiogram recording • The electrical events associated with an electrocardiogram • The cardiac cycle • The events that occur during the cardiac cycle • How different heart sounds are related to specific events in the cardiac cycle • Cardiac arrhythmias • Cardiac output and describe factors that influence it • Age related changes in the heart

  31. Figure 20-13a An Electrocardiogram Electrode placement for recording a standard ECG.

  32. Electrocardiogram (ECG, EKG) • = Record of electrical events in heart • Associated with conduction/propagation of heart beat • Strong enough to be detected on body surface • Can monitor electrical activity of heart by comparing info from electrodes at specific body locations • ECGs reveal abnormal patterns of impulse conduction • When portion of heart is damaged, those cells no longer conduct AP

  33. Figure 20-13b An Electrocardiogram 800 msec R R P wave (atria depolarize) S–T segment T wave (ventricles repolarize) P–R segment Millivolts Q S S–T interval P–R interval QRS interval (ventricles depolarize) Q–T interval

  34. Electrocardiogram • Important features of an ECG • P wave = atrial depolarization • Small wave • Atria start contracting about 100 msec after start of Pwave • QRS complex = ventricular depolarization and atrial repolarization • Strong signal because ventricular muscle more massive than atrial muscle • Complex because also includes atrial repolarization • Ventricles start contracting shortly after peak of R wave • T wave = ventricular repolarization • Small, like P wave

  35. ECG Analysis • Measure: • Size of voltage changes: usually focused on amount of depolarization occurring during P wave and QRS complex • Small P wave = mass of heart muscle decreased • Large QRS = heart has become enlarged • Small T wave = affected by anything that slows ventricular repolarization • e.g., starvation, low cardiac energy reserves, coronary ischemia, abnormal ion concentration

  36. ECG Analysis • Measure: • Duration and temporal relationships of various components • Reported as intervals • P-R interval • = From start of P wave to start of QRS complex • Extension may indicate damage to atrial conducting pathways or AV node • Q-T interval • = From end of P-R interval to end of T wave • Extension may indicate conduction problems, coronary ischemia, myocardial damage, congenital heart defect

  37. Cardiac Arrhythmias • = Abnormal patterns of electrical activity • Normal if transient • Clinical problems may develop and reduce pumping efficiency of heart • May indicate: • Damage to myocardium • Injury to pacemaker or conducting pathways • Exposure to drugs • Variation in electrolyte concentration • Asystole = flatline

  38. Cardiac Cycle Figure 20–11 9th Edition

  39. Cardiac Cycle • = Period between start of one heartbeat and beginning of next • Includes electrical events and associated blood flow • Lasts approx. 0.8 sec in resting adult (72/min) • Involves alternating periods of contraction and relaxation of atria and ventricles

  40. Cardiac Cycle • Systole = contraction (squeezing) of chambers • Pressure in chambers rises (systolic pressure) • In RV=30 mm Hg (only pumps blood through pulmonary circuit) • In LV=120 mm Hg (pumps blood through systemic circuit) • Pushes blood into adjacent chamber or arterial trunks • Diastole = relaxation (dilation) of chambers • Pressure in chambers drops • Chambers fill with blood and prepare for next cardiac cycle

  41. Cardiac Cycle • Blood flows from one chamber to another only if pressure in first exceeds that of second • Controlled by timing of contractions • Directed by 1-way valves • Phases of cardiac cycle • Atrial systole • Atrial diastole • Ventricular systole • Ventricular diastole

  42. Figure 20-16a Phases of the Cardiac Cycle Atrial systole begins: Atrial contraction forces a small amount of additional blood into relaxed ventricles. Start 0 msec 800 msec 100 msec Cardiac cycle

  43. Figure 20-16b Phases of the Cardiac Cycle Atrial systole ends, atrial diastole begins 100 msec Cardiac cycle

  44. Figure 20-16c Phases of the Cardiac Cycle Cardiac cycle Ventricular systole— first phase: Ventricular contraction pushes AV valves closed but does not create enough pressure to open semilunar valves.

  45. Figure 20-16d Phases of the Cardiac Cycle Cardiac cycle 370 msec Ventricular systole— second phase: As ventricular pressure rises and exceeds pressure in the arteries, the semilunar valves open and blood is ejected.

  46. Figure 20-16e Phases of the Cardiac Cycle Cardiac cycle 370 msec Ventricular diastole—early: As ventricles relax, pressure in ventricles drops; blood flows back against cusps of semilunar valves and forces them closed. Blood flows into the relaxed atria.

  47. Figure 20-16f Phases of the Cardiac Cycle 800 msec Cardiac cycle Ventricular diastole—late: All chambers are relaxed. Ventricles fill passively.

  48. Cardiac Cycle • People can usually survive with severe atrial damage • Because atrial systole makes relatively minor contribution to ventricular volume • Damage to one or both ventricles leads to heart failure • Lack of adequate blood flow to peripheral tissues/organs • Although both atria and ventricles undergo systole and diastole, terms usually refer to ventricular contraction and relaxation

  49. Heart Sounds • Closing of valves and rushing of blood through heart  characteristic heart sounds heard during auscultation with stethoscope • AV valves close = “lubb” (S1) • Semilunar valves close = “dubb” (S2) • S3 and S4 are sounds of blood flowing through heart
