Can you please fill in all the blanks plz thank you :) A large vein called the 6.------- -brings blood from the upper part of the body to the heart, where it enters the 7.----------------. The blood is pumped out of the right atrium into the 8.-------- and travels through the 9.---------- to the 10.------ -------- ,where it picks up oxygen . From the lungs, blood travels through the 11.------- -and returns to the heart, where it enters the 12.-------. Finally, the blood is forced from the 13-------- into the 14. -----------, which carries it to the tissues of the body.

Do you have a diagram of the circulatory system, or the heart?

So the first one asks, through which big vein does blood enter the heart.
Sup_open~study
  • Sup_open~study
yes
blues
  • blues
A word about naming: veins always carry blood toward the heart. Arteries always carry blood away from the heart. There are two circulation loops in the body: the systematic circulation, which is all of the body except the lungs, and then the pulmonary circulation which is the lungs. Both these circulations have veins which bring blood from them toward the heart. The question asks for the vein which brings blood from the body, not the lungs. The two hints to the name are "vein" and "not lung" (or, same meaning as lung, not pulmonary).
Sup_open~study
  • Sup_open~study
so i think it is the superior vena cava is that right ???
blues
  • blues
Yes, it is. And in context of the arrows showing the direction of blood flow through the heart, it should be straight forward to figure out where the blood goes when it gets to the heart.
Sup_open~study
  • Sup_open~study
so # 7 is the right ventricle ???
blues
  • blues
Actually, I would say "right atrium" - the chamber where blood from the superior vena cava ends up first. Both the atria are like lobbies where blood coming into the heart arrives. The only difference between them is that the right ventricle is the entry chamber for blood from the body, while the left ventricle is the entry chamber for blood from the lungs. From the atria, the blood goes to the ventricles (right atrium --> right ventricle and left atrium --> left ventricle). The ventricles then actually pump the blood out into circulation.
Sup_open~study
  • Sup_open~study
ah yes you are right sorry i guessed my eyes skipped that part lol
blues
  • blues
So 7 is right atrium and in light of the discussion above, after the right atrium it goes to the...?
Sup_open~study
  • Sup_open~study
i guess the right ventricle ??
Sup_open~study
  • Sup_open~study
@blues ???
Sup_open~study
  • Sup_open~study
o sup man xD
blues
  • blues
My computer needs the repair shop. Soon and badly. Sorry about that. The right ventricle is correct. After the right ventricle...?
blues
  • blues
After the right ventricle it leaves the heart again. Now it is blood flow away from the heart so you are looking for an artery.
Sup_open~study
  • Sup_open~study
pulmonary artery ???
blues
  • blues
Yup, and the pulmonary artery is unsurprisingly named for the organ / circulatory it takes blood toward. Which is the answer to number 10.
Sup_open~study
  • Sup_open~study
ah i see :)
Sup_open~study
  • Sup_open~study
so citculatory artery is #10
Sup_open~study
  • Sup_open~study
???
blues
  • blues
Look at the picture. The answer to the last question, the pulmonary artery, carries blood away from the heart toward the organ 'pulmonary' basically means. It is the organ where the blood picks up oxygen from the organ you breath oxygen into.
blues
  • blues
And if you read ahead to the next sentence, it tells you where the blood has just been. So it effectively gives you the answer to this one.
Sup_open~study
  • Sup_open~study
i'm sorry i don't understand :(
blues
  • blues
The answer to the previous question gives you a glaring clue: The pulmonary artery carries blood away from the heart. It is named "artery" because it carries blood out of the heart and "pulmonary" for the organ that it carries the blood to. The organ where the blood goes is what the question asks for. It gives you another clue: this organ is where the blood picks up oxygen. When you breathe, where in your body does air go? And the question after this one gives you another big clue: it literally tells you where the blood has been, which is what this questions asks...

  • blues
If you are wondering what "pulmonary" means, you could look it up on www.dictionary.com. http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/pulmonary?s=t
Sup_open~study
  • Sup_open~study
ok thanks so much i think it is the Aorta
blues
  • blues
No, ah, sorry. The aorta is another big artery. It does not ask you for a blood vessel. It asks you for an organ.
Sup_open~study
  • Sup_open~study
left valve ???
blues
  • blues
No. This organ is not in the picture. So look at the name of the blood vessel you identified in the earlier problem. The name will help you if you, seriously. It is an artery because it carries blood out of the heart. And it is called the *pulmonary* artery because it carries blood to the pulmonary organ. This mysterious pulmonary organ is what the question wants. Another name for pulmonary is.....? If you are not sure, look it up. Here is the link to the definition: http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/pulmonary?s=t
Sup_open~study
  • Sup_open~study
lungs ??
blues
  • blues
Yes. And when you move on to the next question, it says "After the lungs..." which pretty much tells you where the blood has been in number 10.
blues
  • blues
So for number 11, it tells you that the blood is travelling from the lungs to the heart. So you are looking for a vessel, because blood flows through blood vessels. And because it is now carrying blood *toward* the heart, you are looking for a vein.
Sup_open~study
  • Sup_open~study
um the pulmonary vein ??
blues
  • blues
Exactly. And note the pattern in the names. It is a vein because it is flowing toward the heart. And it is called the "pulmonary" vein for the organ it takes blood away from. These patterns are your friend in terms of making sense of all this stuff. We already went over the pattern for the chambers of the heart. Blood always arrives in an atrium and leaves through a ventricle. And because we have already discussed blood from the *body* arriving in the right atrium, blood now coming from the *lungs* arrives where? Another helpful pattern.

So with that in mind, twelve is....?
Sup_open~study
  • Sup_open~study
left atrium ??
blues
  • blues
Exactly. Left atrium is correct. And we talked about the right atrium ---> right ventricle pattern. In that context, we now have the left atrium ---> where...?
Sup_open~study
  • Sup_open~study
woot yes xD
blues
  • blues
Woot yes is correct. Left ventricle. And after the left ventricle, it flows out through the....?
blues
  • blues
You can follow the arrows in the picture for the name of the blood vessel.
Sup_open~study
  • Sup_open~study
left ventricle is # 13
Sup_open~study
  • Sup_open~study
????
Sup_open~study
  • Sup_open~study
so 14 would be aorta ??
blues
  • blues
Yup, 13 is left ventricle and 14 is aorta.
