    • D.

      Interatrial septum

    • E.

      Auricle

    Correct Answer
    E. Auricle
    Explanation
    The auricle is a structure that is used to increase the capacity of the atrium. It is a small, ear-like projection that extends from the atrium and helps to expand the atrial space, allowing for a larger volume of blood to be held within the atrium. This increased capacity is important for efficient filling of the ventricles and ensuring adequate blood flow throughout the body. The other options listed, such as the ventricle, coronary sulcus, fossa ovalis, and interatrial septum, do not have a role in increasing atrial capacity.

      Anterior and posterior interventricular sulcus

    Correct Answer
    E. Anterior and posterior interventricular sulcus
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Anterior and posterior interventricular sulcus." The interventricular sulci are grooves on the surface of the heart that separate the ventricles. The anterior interventricular sulcus is located on the front surface of the heart, while the posterior interventricular sulcus is located on the back surface. Together, these sulci mark the boundary between the ventricles. The other options either refer to individual sulci or a combination of sulci that do not correspond to the correct boundary.

      Mitral valve

    • E.

      Ascending aorta

    Correct Answer
    C. Tricuspid valve
    Explanation
    The tricuspid valve is the correct answer because it is the structure that allows blood to pass from the right atrium to the right ventricle. The tricuspid valve is located between these two chambers and it opens when the atrium contracts, allowing blood to flow into the ventricle. It then closes to prevent backflow of blood when the ventricle contracts and pumps blood out of the heart.

    • D.

      Hyaline cartilage

    • E.

      Cardiac muscle tissue

    Correct Answer
    B. Dense irregular connective tissue
    Explanation
    The valves of the heart are made up of dense irregular connective tissue. This type of tissue provides strength and flexibility, allowing the valves to open and close properly to regulate blood flow. Dense irregular connective tissue is composed of collagen fibers arranged in a random pattern, making it resistant to stretching and tearing. This structural arrangement is essential for the valves to withstand the high pressure and constant movement within the heart.

    • C.

      Bicuspid valve

    • D.

      Aortic semilunar valve

    • E.

      Pulmonary trunk

    Correct Answer
    D. Aortic semilunar valve
    Explanation
    Blood passes from the left ventricle to the aortic semilunar valve. This valve is located at the base of the aorta, the largest artery in the body. When the left ventricle contracts, the aortic semilunar valve opens, allowing oxygen-rich blood to be pumped out of the heart and into the aorta. From the aorta, the blood is then distributed to the rest of the body, supplying oxygen and nutrients to the tissues and organs.

  • 14. 

    This structure temporarily shunts blood from the pulmonary trunk into the aorta in a fetus.

    • A.

      Fossa ovalis

    • B.

      Foramen ovale

    • C.

      Trabeculae carnae

    • D.

      Descending aorta

    • E.

      Ductus arteriosus

    Correct Answer
    E. Ductus arteriosus
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Ductus arteriosus. During fetal development, the ductus arteriosus is a temporary structure that allows blood to bypass the lungs and flow directly from the pulmonary trunk to the aorta. This is necessary because the fetal lungs are not yet functional, and oxygenation of the blood occurs through the placenta. After birth, the ductus arteriosus normally closes, redirecting blood flow to the lungs for oxygenation.

  • 15. 

    As each ventricle contracts, where does blood move?

    • A.

      Into an artery

    • B.

      Into the apex

    • C.

      Into a vein

    • D.

      Through an atrioventricular valve

    • E.

      Through the apex

    Correct Answer
    A. Into an artery
    Explanation
    During each ventricular contraction, blood is pumped out of the heart and into an artery. The ventricles are the lower chambers of the heart responsible for pumping blood to the body. When they contract, the blood is forced out of the heart through the aorta (in the case of the left ventricle) or the pulmonary artery (in the case of the right ventricle), both of which are arteries. Therefore, the correct answer is "Into an artery."

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    As each atrium contracts, where does blood move?

    • A.

      Into an auricle

    • B.

      Into an artery

    • C.

      Into a vein

    • D.

      Through an atrioventricular valve

    • E.

      Through a semilunar valve

    Correct Answer
    D. Through an atrioventricular valve
    Explanation
    When each atrium contracts, blood moves through an atrioventricular valve. The atrioventricular valve is a one-way valve that allows blood to flow from the atria to the ventricles, preventing backflow. This movement of blood is essential for the proper functioning of the heart, as it ensures that blood is pumped efficiently from the atria to the ventricles before being pumped out to the rest of the body.

    Rate this question:

  • 17. 

    Which of the below structures prevents blood from flowing back from the lungs?

    • A.

      Tricuspid valve

    • B.

      Bicuspid valve

    • C.

      Pulmonary valve

    • D.

      Aortic valve

    • E.

      Pulmonary vein

    Correct Answer
    C. Pulmonary valve
    Explanation
    The pulmonary valve prevents blood from flowing back from the lungs. It is located between the right ventricle and the pulmonary artery. When the right ventricle contracts, the pulmonary valve opens, allowing blood to flow into the pulmonary artery and towards the lungs. After oxygenation in the lungs, the pulmonary valve closes, preventing the blood from flowing back into the right ventricle. This ensures that oxygen-rich blood is pumped to the rest of the body through the aorta and not mixed with deoxygenated blood.

  • 18. 

    In this disorder, the aortic valve is narrowed.

    • A.

      Aortic insufficiency

    • B.

      Rheumatic fever

    • C.

      Mitral valve prolapse

    • D.

      Aortic stenosis

    • E.

      Aortic regurgitation

    Correct Answer
    D. Aortic stenosis
    Explanation
    Aortic stenosis is a disorder characterized by the narrowing of the aortic valve. This narrowing restricts blood flow from the left ventricle to the aorta, leading to symptoms such as chest pain, shortness of breath, and fainting. It can be caused by various factors, including congenital abnormalities, calcification of the valve, or rheumatic fever. Aortic insufficiency, rheumatic fever, mitral valve prolapse, and aortic regurgitation are different conditions that do not involve the narrowing of the aortic valve.

    • B.

      Left atrium

    • C.

      Right atrium and ventricle

    • D.

      Right ventricle

    • E.

      Left atrium and right ventricle

    Correct Answer
    C. Right atrium and ventricle
    Explanation
    The right atrium and ventricle carry deoxygenated blood. The right atrium receives blood from the body through the superior and inferior vena cava, and then pumps it into the right ventricle. The right ventricle then pumps the deoxygenated blood to the lungs for oxygenation. This is in contrast to the left atrium and ventricle, which carry oxygenated blood from the lungs to the rest of the body.

      Right ventricle

    • D.

      Left auricle

    • E.

      Myocardial vein

    Correct Answer
    A. Coronary artery
    Explanation
    The coronary artery is responsible for distributing oxygenated blood to the myocardium, which is the muscular tissue of the heart. This artery supplies the heart with the necessary oxygen and nutrients it needs to function properly. Without the coronary artery, the myocardium would not receive enough oxygen, leading to heart problems and potential damage to the heart muscle.

    Cardiac muscle fibers electrically connect to neighboring fibers by

    • A.

      Desmosomes

    • B.

      Intermediate discs

    • C.

      Gap junctions

    • D.

      Contractile fibres

    • E.

      Chordae tendinae

    Correct Answer
    C. Gap junctions
    Explanation
    Cardiac muscle fibers electrically connect to neighboring fibers through gap junctions. Gap junctions are specialized protein channels that allow the direct passage of ions and small molecules between cells. These junctions play a crucial role in coordinating the contraction of cardiac muscle, as they allow the rapid spread of electrical signals, known as action potentials, from one cell to another. This synchronized contraction ensures the efficient pumping of blood by the heart. Desmosomes and intermediate discs are structural components that provide mechanical support and stability to cardiac muscle fibers, while contractile fibers are responsible for generating the force of contraction. Chordae tendinae are fibrous cords that anchor the heart valves.

      Cardiac muscle

    • D.

      Hepatocytes

    • E.

      Leukocytes

    Correct Answer
    C. Cardiac muscle
    Explanation
    Cardiac muscle contains the largest amount of mitochondria. Mitochondria are responsible for producing energy in the form of ATP through cellular respiration. Cardiac muscle is continuously active and requires a constant supply of energy to maintain its contraction and relaxation. Therefore, it needs a large number of mitochondria to meet its high energy demands. Smooth muscle, skeletal muscle, hepatocytes, and leukocytes also contain mitochondria but in lesser amounts compared to cardiac muscle.

    Correct Answer
    D. Conduction system
    Explanation
    The conduction system is a network of specialized cardiac muscle fibers that allow the electrical impulses generated by the sinoatrial node to travel through the heart, coordinating the contraction and relaxation of the cardiac muscles. It includes the sinoatrial node, bundle of His, and Purkinje fibers, which work together to ensure that each cycle of cardiac excitation progresses smoothly and efficiently through the heart.

    Rate this question:

  • 24. 

    By comparison, cardiac muscle cells have _____________________ contraction plateau time than skeletal muscle cells.

    • A.

      A shorter

    • B.

      A longer

    • C.

      No difference in

    Correct Answer
    B. A longer
    Explanation
    Cardiac muscle cells have a longer contraction plateau time than skeletal muscle cells. This means that the period of time during which the muscle cells remain contracted is longer in cardiac muscles compared to skeletal muscles. This difference in contraction plateau time is due to the unique characteristics and functions of cardiac muscles, which require sustained contractions for proper functioning of the heart. In contrast, skeletal muscles primarily function for movement and do not require the same level of sustained contraction.

    This is the volume of blood ejected from the left ventricle into the aorta each minute.

    • A.

      Cardiac output

    • B.

      Cardiac input

    • C.

      Stroke volume

    • D.

      Heart rate

    • E.

      Auscultation

    Correct Answer
    A. Cardiac output
    Explanation
    Cardiac output refers to the volume of blood that is pumped out by the left ventricle of the heart into the aorta in one minute. It is an important measure of the heart's efficiency in delivering oxygen and nutrients to the body's tissues. Cardiac output is calculated by multiplying the stroke volume (the amount of blood pumped out with each heartbeat) by the heart rate (the number of times the heart beats per minute). Therefore, the correct answer is cardiac output.

    Rate this question:

      Repolarization

    • D.

      Diastole

    • E.

      Fibrillation

    Correct Answer
    B. Systole
    Explanation
    Systole refers to the period during a cardiac cycle when contraction occurs and blood pressure rises. This is the phase where the heart muscles contract, forcing blood out of the chambers and into the arteries. It is an essential part of the cardiac cycle as it ensures that oxygenated blood is pumped to the body's organs and tissues. During systole, the blood pressure reaches its highest point, allowing for efficient circulation throughout the body.

    Rate this question:

  • 27. 

    Which of these periods represents the greatest cardiac output?

    • A.

      Atrial diastole

    • B.

      Ventricular diastole

    • C.

      Atrial systole

    • D.

      Ventricular systole

    • E.

      Septal systole

    Correct Answer
    D. Ventricular systole
    Explanation
    Ventricular systole represents the greatest cardiac output because it is the phase of the cardiac cycle where the ventricles contract and pump blood out of the heart into the systemic circulation. During ventricular systole, the blood is forcefully ejected from the ventricles, resulting in a higher volume of blood being pumped out per unit of time compared to the other phases mentioned.

    Rate this question:

  • 28. 

    The second heart sound represents which of the below events?

    • A.

      Valvular stenosis

    • B.

      Semilunar valves opening

    • C.

      Atrioventricular valves closing

    • D.

      Semilunar valves closing

    • E.

      Atrioventricular valves opening

    Correct Answer
    D. Semilunar valves closing
    Explanation
    The second heart sound represents the closing of the semilunar valves. These valves, which include the aortic and pulmonary valves, close after the ventricles have contracted and ejected blood into the arteries. The closure of these valves produces the "dub" sound heard during cardiac auscultation. This sound indicates the beginning of diastole, the relaxation phase of the cardiac cycle, and the closure of the semilunar valves prevents the backflow of blood from the arteries into the ventricles.

    Stimulation of this nerve reduces heart rate.

    • A.

      Cardiac accelerator nerve

    • B.

      Hypoglossal nerve

    • C.

      Medulla oblongata nerve

    • D.

      Vagus nerve

    • E.

      Phrenic nerve

    Correct Answer
    D. Vagus nerve
    Explanation
    The vagus nerve is responsible for regulating the parasympathetic nervous system, which controls the body's rest and digest response. When the vagus nerve is stimulated, it releases acetylcholine, which slows down the heart rate. This is why stimulation of the vagus nerve can reduce heart rate.

    Rate this question:

  • 30. 

    Which of the below reduces heart rate?

    • A.

      Increased noradrenaline hormone

    • B.

      Increased thyroid hormone

    • C.

      Increased potassium levels

    • D.

      Increased calcium levels

    • E.

      Increased sympathetic stimulation

    Correct Answer
    C. Increased potassium levels
    Explanation
    Increased potassium levels can reduce heart rate because potassium plays a crucial role in regulating the electrical activity of the heart. High levels of potassium in the blood can cause the heart cells to become less excitable, leading to a slower heart rate. This is because potassium helps to maintain the resting membrane potential of heart cells, which determines their ability to generate electrical impulses. When potassium levels are elevated, the heart's electrical activity is suppressed, resulting in a decrease in heart rate.

    This part of the brain regulates heart rate.

    • A.

      Cardiac accelerator nerves

    • B.

      Chemoreceptors

    • C.

      Medulla oblongata

    • D.

      Vagus nerve

    • E.

      Proprioceptors

    Correct Answer
    C. Medulla oblongata
    Explanation
    The medulla oblongata is a part of the brainstem that controls various involuntary functions, including regulating heart rate. It contains specialized nerve cells that send signals to the heart through the cardiac accelerator nerves, influencing the heart rate to increase or decrease as needed. This region also receives input from chemoreceptors and proprioceptors, which provide information about oxygen levels and body position, respectively, allowing the medulla oblongata to adjust heart rate accordingly. The vagus nerve, on the other hand, primarily controls the parasympathetic nervous system and helps to slow down the heart rate.

      P wave

    • E.

      Q wave

    Correct Answer
    B. T wave
    Explanation
    The T wave represents repolarization of the ventricle. During repolarization, the ventricles are resetting their electrical charge in preparation for the next heartbeat. This is reflected in the ECG as a positive deflection on the graph. The T wave occurs after the QRS complex, which represents ventricular depolarization. Therefore, the T wave is the correct answer as it specifically represents the repolarization of the ventricle.

      P wave

    • E.

      Q wave

    Correct Answer
    D. P wave
    Explanation
    The P wave is the correct answer because it represents the electrical event that triggers the contraction of the atria. The P wave is the first deflection on an electrocardiogram (ECG) and it represents the depolarization of the atria, which leads to the contraction of the atrial muscles. This wave is responsible for initiating the pumping of blood from the atria into the ventricles.
