The main function of the pericardium and its fluid is to lubricate the moving surfaces of the heart. The pericardium also helps to retard ventricular dilation, helps to hold the heart in position, and forms a barrier to the spread of infections and neoplasia. Pathophysiological conditions such as cardiac bleeding or an exudate-producing pericarditis may lead to a sudden or large accumulation of fluid within the pericardial sac. This may impede ventricular filling. From 50 to 300 mL of pericardial fluid may accumulate without serious ventricular impairment.

Qxd 6 11/21/11 PA R T I 10:30 AM Page 6 / Anatomy and Physiology in an anterior, leftward, and inferior direction. Blood flows out of the ventricle from the apex toward the aorta in a superior and rightward direction (Fig. 1-8). Thus, blood flows from posterior orifices into both ventricles in a leftward direction and is ejected superiorly toward the center of the heart. The right ventricular outflow tract is more tubular; the left ventricular outflow tract more conical (Fig. 1-8). Valves Atrioventricular Valves The AV tricuspid and bicuspid (mitral) valve complexes are composed of six components that function as a unit: the atria, the valve rings or annuli fibrosi of the fibrous skeleton, the valve cusps or leaflets, the chordae tendineae, the papillary muscles, and the ventricular walls (Fig.

Ionic activity reflects interactions between ions as well as the ion concentration. An ion’s activity is equal to its concentration times its activity coefficient. It is possible to make reasonably accurate measurements of ionic activities within cells. However, most descriptions of ion movements are based on ion concentration. Ion Movement Across the Myocardial Cell Membrane Passive Ion Movement. Ions traverse the sarcolemma passively through membrane-bound, water-filled pores called channels.
