Mediastinum Clinical Anatomy Tony Serino, Ph.D. . Mediastinum: Topic Objectives

Be able to identify and describe the contents of the three major divisions of the mediastinum. Be able to identify normal and pathological variations of the aortic arch and congenital heart defects. Be able to explain differences and similarities between adult and fetal blood flow, and list changes needed at birth.

Be able to explain cardiac muscle cell depolarization and relate its significance to heart function. Be able to identify and describe all structures of heart anatomy and their function. Understand coronary circulation and its normal and some pathological variations. Be able to trace the flow of blood through the heart chambers and relate it to valve operation and heart sounds.

Be able to identify and trace coronary electrical conduction and its relevance to EKG Be able to explain cardiac rate and force of contraction control Be able to calculate CO and SV Be able to predict effects on heart performance with changes in CO and SV, induced by changes in Starling forces, venous return, BP, and HR

PA Esophagus Function: Deglutition Two sphincters: upper and

lower esophageal sphincters (lower is physiological only) Retropleural position (therefore, covered by adventitia)

Mucosa: stratified squamous with many mucus glands (esophageal glands) Muscularis: changes from skeletal to smooth muscle

Bilobed organ that is largest in children, but begins to regress sharply at the onset of puberty (around age 11) It is the site of T-cell lymphocyte

production and produces hormones (such as, thymosin) that modifies their physiology Thymus Gland

General Circulatory System 1. Cardiovascular

Consists of a closed system of vessels which transport blood Two circuits: Systemic and

Pulmonary Arteries move blood away from the heart Veins move blood toward the heart

Heart Development Fetal Circulation Selected Heart Defects

Heart as a Dual Pump Cardiac muscle arranged as whorls that squeeze the blood Twin pumps: systemic and pulmonary

Four chambers: 2 atria and 2 ventricles Cardiac Muscle Cells Cardiac Muscle Depolarization

(ml/min) Factors Affecting SV Stroke Volume (SV) = End Diastolic Volume End Systolic Volume (SV = EDV ESV(ml/beat) )

In a healthy 70-kg man, EDV is approximately 120 mL and ESV is approximately 50 mL, giving a difference of 70 mL for the stroke volume. EDV affected by: Venous return which is dependent on venous tone, skeletal muscle pumps, etc.

ESV As the heart fills it is stretched which allows for better overlap of the contractile proteins which will affect the force of contraction and the ESV (Starlings Law of the Heart increase preload (ventricular stretch) increases contraction force)

Increasing the force of contraction at any EDV will decrease the ESV and increase the SV (sympathetic stimulation and epinephrine) Pericardial sac prevents over distension and loss of overlap; decrease performance of myocardium at high EDVs is due to

disruption of fibers Sympathetic Stimulation Leads to increase HR Increases in Ca++ release from SR,

increase Ca++ through membrane and increase myosin crossbridge cycling Increases force of contraction

Heart Rate Control Sinus Rhythm = normal SA node control Autonomic Activity Sympathetic (thoracic trunk) = accelerator (induces tachycardia)

Parasympathetic (vagus n.)= brake (induces bradycardia) Hormones epinephrine
