Motrin

...  people prefer to use Motrin generic over other forms of medication like aspirin. It is important to note, however, that too much intake of generic Motrin can lead to serious heart conditions and circulation problems. People can also become immune to the effects of Motrin, making it ineffective to treat symptoms of inflammation. This is why it is important to follow the recommended dosage and  ...

Nephron

...  It consists of the glomerulus and the bowman’s capsule. The glomerulus is the ball of coiled capillaries that receives blood from the afferent arteriole and brings back the blood cells to the circulation through the efferent arteriole. While passing through the glomerulus, some of the low molecular weight substances in the blood, like water and electrolytes, are filtered in the  ...

Sympathetic Division

...  initiating the occurrence of a series of processes. These various processes help the body to respond and cope to threats, stress or emergency occurrences. What are these processes? Increased blood circulation Blood circulation increases because of increased heartbeat and heart rate. As blood circulation is enhanced, oxygen is readily pumped into the cells, tissues and organs, providing faster  ...

Arteries of the Neck and Head

...  arteries of the head and neck allow blood to circulate properly on the upper parts of the systematic loop. The circulation originates from the aortic arch and the arteries supplying the blood, including the left common carotid artery, the brachiocephalic artery and the left subclavian artery. Blood goes from the head and neck through the jugular vein and the subclavian vein. The  ...

Arteries of the Shoulder

...  depleted of oxygen and bring it back to the heart. The heart pumps it towards the lungs in order to give it fresh payloads of oxygen. Different health issues and physical conditions can impair the circulation of the blood from the brachial artery to the heart. These include occlusions or damages in the brachial artery, blood clotting disorders and the continuous weakening of the blood  ...

Conduction System of the Heart

...  known as the systole, and the relaxation phase is called the diastole. The heart is responsible for pumping blood to the lungs and the rest of the body. The distribution of blood through pulmonary circulation and systemic circulation is accomplished by the systematic contraction and circulation of the cardiac muscle in the myocardium. For the blood to effectively produce and be distributed  ...

Arteries of the Pelvis

...  pulsation of the heart. This is because the pulse can be taken from this area and since it comprises most of the distal region, a lot of information can be taken about the general condition of the circulation of the entire body just by testing this area.  ...

Fetal Circulation

...  fetal circulation differs from adult human circulation or even those of children in so many ways. This article outlines most of these differences. What are the reasons for the differences in fetal circulation and adult circulation? Fetal circulation differs from humans who are already born because of the difference in the circulatory system. Fetuses do not use their lungs, but rely  ...

Principle Arteries

...  breaking from the aortic artery delivers the oxygen-rich blood all throughout the human body. By the time the left ventricle contracts, the blood would be forced in the arteries in the systematic circulation. This process is repetitive, and it occurs in every beating of the heart.  ...

Routes Of Circulation

...  flow of circulatory blood is divided into 2 divisions: the pulmonary circulation and the coronary circulation. Pulmonary circulation This division is complimented by systemic circulations. It consists of blood vessels that transport blood through these ways: the lungs for oxygenation, and for the return of the waste gases along the way and to the blood vessels, then back to the heart.
