  Systemic Circulation



Systemic Circulation

   The circulation of blood from the left ventricle, through an extensive network of vessels that penetrate every part of the body, to the right side of the heart.

RELATED TERMS
--------------------------------------

Circulation
The flow of blood through the body. Includes the heart, arteries, veins and capillaries.

Blood
The life-maintaining fluid which is made up of plasma, red blood cells (erythrocytes), white blood cells (leukocytes), and platelets; blood circulates through the body's heart, arteries, veins, and capillaries; it carries away waste matter and carbon dioxide, and brings nourishment, electrolytes, hormones, vitamins, antibodies, heat, and oxygen to the tissues.

Ventricle
One of the two lower chambers of the heart.

Heart
The hollow, muscular organ responsible for pumping blood through the circulatory system.



SIMILAR TERMS
--------------------------------------

Systematic desensitization
A behavior therapy procedure widely used to modify behaviors associated with phobias. The procedure involves the construction of a hierarchy of anxiety-producing stimuli by the subject, and gradual presentation of the stimuli until they no longer produce anxiety.

Systemic
Disease or symptoms that affect many different parts of the body.

Systemic lupus erythematosus

Systemic sclerosis
A form of scleroderma.

Systemic therapy
Treatment that consists of taking medication internally, such as in pill form or by injection or infusion.

Systole
The cardiac contraction of a heartbeat.

Systolic
Measurement of the maximum blood pressure in the arteries. The larger number is the systolic pressure caused by each pump of the heart.

Systolic blood pressure
The highest blood pressure measured in the arteries.

Systolic Pressure
The pressure of the blood in the arteries when the heart pumps. It is the higher of two blood pressure measurements, e.g., 120/80, where 120 is the systolic pressure.



PREVIOUS AND NEXT TERMS
--------------------------------------

Stunned Myocardium
If blood flow is returned to an area of heart muscle after a period of ischemia (lack of blood supply), the heart muscle may not pump normally for a period of days following the event. This is called "stunned" heart muscle or myocardium.

Subvalvular Aortic Stenosis
Subvalvular aortic stenosis is a narrowing of the flow of blood below the aortic valve in the left ventricle. It is usually caused by a membrane or thickening in the muscle in this area.

Sudden Cardiac Death
A sudden, unexpected death caused by loss of heart function. Most sudden cardiac deaths are caused by arrhythmias, such as ventricular fibrillation.

Superficial Thrombophlebitis
A clot in a superficial vein, just under the skin.

Survival Rates
Survival rates indicate the percentage of patients or grafts (transplanted organs) that are still alive functioning at a certain point posttransplant. Survival rates are often given at one-, three-, and five-year increments. Policy modifications are never made without examining their impact on transplant survival rates. Survival rates improve with technological and scientific advancements. Developing policies that reflect and respond to these advances in transplantation will also improve survival rates.
