Anatomy & Physiology Study Guide for Transport Systems Test

Anatomy & Physiology Study Guide for Transport Systems Test: Blood,
Cardiovascular, Lymphatic and Respiratory
- Components of blood- know all constituents
- Hemopoiesis
- Structure/function of red blood cells vs. white blood cells
- Blood types
- Differences between granulocytes and agranulocytes
- Hemostasis
- What are reticulocytes?
- Location of cardiovascular organs (which cavity)
- All structures of heart- study your diagrams!!
- Flow of blood through the heart
- Coronary arteries- location & function
- Histology of layers of heart (epicardium, myocardium, endocardium)
and respiratory structures (bronchi, alveolar sacs, etc.)
- Cardiac cycle- what’s responsible for 1st and 2nd heart sounds
- Changes in fetal & adult circulation (compare pulmonary & systemic
- Study diagram on p. 225 in book
- Know all structures/functions
- Types of lymphocytes and functions
- Symptoms of inflammation, edema
- Types of immunity
- How does aging affect lymphatic system
- How does lymphatic help blood w/ homeostasis
- Location/function of all respiratory structures- study your diagrams!!
- Importance of respiratory membrane
- Histology of respiratory structures
- Inspiration, expiration
- Process of gas exchange in the lungs
- Sneeze vs. cough reflex
**Think about how each of these systems is connected to one another and
helps to maintain homeostasis of the body.
