There is a gradual transition from elastic arteries to the smaller muscular arteries, in contrast to other species, in which branching of the arteries is associated with abrupt changes in wall thickness or lumen size. there is greater hydrostatic pressure in the blood closer to the heart. Capillaries have a larger bore and the wall is of one cell in thickness. They have the greatest amount of elastin, enabling them to expand. Largest; Relatively thin walls compared to their diameter b. Examples: aorta, pulmonary trunk, common carotid, subclavian c. Ventricular systole conducting arteries expand to receive bld d. Ventricular diastole arteries recoil e. Allows for control of BP f. elastic arteries: An artery with a large number of collagen and elastin filaments, giving it the ability to stretch in response to each pulse. In arteries, the tunica media, which contains smooth muscle cells and elastic tissue, is thicker than that of veins so it can modulate vessel caliber and thus control and maintain blood pressure. Disinfect your work area thoroughly after the procedure. The elastic recoil helps to smooth out the blood flow during diastole . Veins have wider lumen, and their walls are thinner and less elastic. To oppose such recoil, balloon-expandable metal stents were implanted in artificially stenotic renal arteries in pigs and normal renal arteries in dogs and pigs. b. pressure is high in arteries/pressure is low in veins . The stents were then examined angiographically and histologically at regular intervals. 14 B. Arteries and veins are structurally and functionally distinct. Method for data collection. The elastic fibres allow the artery walls to stretch to accommodate surges in pressure. Elastic recoil in arteries and veins The objectives of this activity are for you: to practise experimental skills to explore the elastic properties of the major blood vessels to relate biological structure to function. Elastic recoil of the vessel wall is a common cause of failure of percutaneous transluminal angioplasty in renal arteries. piece of vein) and measure how elastic they are. The artery walls contain collagen and elastic tissues which allow it to stretch and recoil, where as the veins do not have as much connective tissue containing collagen fibres. Left ventricle = 2cm. Key Terms. There are thick muscle layers and elastic fibers present. As with veins, arteries are comprised of three layers: the tunicae intima, media, and externa. The elasticity helps to change the pulsating flow of blood. Procedure . ©University of York Science Education Group. The engaging and detailed PowerPoint and accompanying resources have been designed to cover point 1.3 of the Pearson Edexcel A-level Biology A (Salters Nuffield) specification. Muscular Arteries 3. 8 of 33. walls of arteries and veins have tunica externa, media and intima. Autologous vein lined and vein covered stents in swine arteries. This Elastic Recoil in Arteries and Veins Lesson Plan is suitable for 9th - 12th Grade. Veins on the other hand don’t have that much of an elastic component and therefore lack recoil ability and consequently the blood pressure is relatively low in the veins. Types of Arteries 1. As blood moves through smaller arterioles into capillaries, and then into venules and veins, its velocity and pressure drop continuously. See how arteries behave like sling shots, shooting blood (not rocks) onwards! Add masses and measure the change in length and extent to which the vessel returns to its original length . the arteries drops. Signals from the sympathetic division of the nervous system and the hormones in blood act on the smooth muscle of arteries, dilating and constricting them. e. arteries have thick (muscular) walls (with elastic fibres) to withstand pressure. *Arteries are under a huge pressure. Byer A(1), Ussia G, Galleti G. Author information: (1)Department of Surgery, Hackensack University Medical Center, UMDNJ Medical School, USA. Until recently, it was thought that arteries and veins acquired these differences in response to differing blood flow rates and pressure. The theory that left part of the heart is bigger was proved. This is not a problem as the arteries, being closer to the heart, have to withstand a much higher pressure than the veins do. PLAY. STUDY. Conducting (Elastic) Arteries a. 7 of 33. Oct 21, 2014 - This Pin was discovered by Julie Jones. Veins have a larger bore and thin walls. your own Pins on Pinterest Elastic fibers provide elastic recoil without damage in tissues and organs of the reproductive tract that need to be both strong and extensible to function. Arteries with a diameter of less than 0.1mm are classed as arterioles. *So, veins make bag-like structures to help in returning the blood from tissues back towards the heart. The objectives of this activity are for you: to practise experimental skills. In arteries, the outer margin has layer of elastic fibers (internal elastic membrane) Layers of Arteries and Veins, tunica media. This is not a problem as the arteries, being closer to the heart, have to withstand a much higher pressure than the veins do. The walls of veins are thinner and less elastic than arteries, but they are also more flexible. Procedure SAFETY: Wear eye protection. Flow: The flow is equal in both, the arteries and the veins, as the blood is flowing in a closed circuit. *Adventitia is the most prominent layer in veins. Arteries that supply capillary beds are known as metarterioles. what are arterioles? 8. Hang the section of blood vessel from a paper clip on a clamp stand. Rishi is a pediatric infectious disease physician and works at Khan Academy. Learn vocabulary, terms, and more with flashcards, games, and other study tools. Disinfect your work area thoroughly after the procedure. Arterioles Page 8. to relate biological structure to function. Safety. Refers to the inner most layer composed of endothelial cells with connective tissue with elastic fibers. The elastic recoil of the artery walls help force the blood on. The arteries are further classified as elastic arter-ies, muscular arteries, and arterioles. SAFETY: Wear eye protection. This regulates the blood supply according to the need. Eur J Vasc Surg 4, 617-623 (1990) Thrombogenicity of Metallic Vascular Stents in Arteries and Veins-- An Experimental Study in Pigs H&kan P~irsson, Lars Norgren, Krasnodar Ivancev1, Johan Th~rne and Bo-Anders J6nsson2 Department of Surgery, 1Department of Diagnostic Radiology and 2Department of Radiation Physics University of Lund, Lund, Sweden. Each tissue in the body contains cells of different types that are specialised to suit their function. 3. *Media is the most prominent layer in arteries, and this helps arteries to accommodate high pressure. Histologically the wall of vein also made up of three layers namely, outer tunica externa, middle tunica media and inner tunica interna. The artery walls contain collagen and elastic tissues which allow it to stretch and recoil, where as the veins do not have as much connective tissue containing collagen fibres. *Veins are under less pressure. Part A: Elastic recoil in arteries and veins Activity 1.5 Investigating arteries and veins Technician A1.05T Salters-Nuffield Advanced Biology, Harcourt Education Ltd 2005. Elastic recoil in arteries and veins. Arteries have a smaller bore and thick walls. In its journey from the heart to the tissues, the blood passes through channels of six principal types: elastic arteries, muscular arteries, arterioles, capillaries, venules and veins. Dispose of all animal material according to your teacher’s instructions. Muscular arteries are distributing arteries. Like arteries, the walls of veins are lined with epithelium and contain smooth muscle. In this system, the arteries show a progressive diminution in diameter as they recede from the heart, from about 25 mm in the aorta to 0.3 mm in some arterioles. In rodent lung, elastic arteries are large arteries with a medial layer consisting of alternating layers of concentric elastic lamina and smooth muscle cells. They generally have around 3 layers of smooth muscle cells and the internal elastic lamina is absent. To have more precise result in experiment with elastic recoil in arteries and veins experiment should be repeated more than one time using different sample of veins and artery. Start studying Arteries and Veins. Using precise measurement apparatus to have precise data about length. Elastic recoil in arteries and veins practical. Function: Elastic arteries are conducting arteries. A lab in which high schoolers examine the difference between arteries and veins. Classification of Arteries. d. lumen of artery is small to keep pressure high. However, nongravid PS, although a fibrocartilaginous tissue (which normally does not have elastic fibers), has very thin elastic fibers. When the heart relaxes, the recoil propels blood onward. Elastic Arteries 2. The elastic recoil helps conserve the energy from the pumping heart and smooth out the pulsatile nature created by the heart. The external elastic lamina is only present in larger arterioles. Although both share a thin inner endothelial lining, the arterial system develops a more extensive series of outer layers of elastic fibers and smooth muscle. ; tunica media: The middle layer of a vein wall with bands of thin smooth muscle. Layers of Arteries and Veins, Tunica intima. Muscular arteries can constrict and relax which change their diameter. You can explore tissues using microscopy, and by looking at the overall properties of suitable samples. Budding biologists will find out which blood vessel can stretch furthest, recording their data in a table then answering several questions evaluating their work and safety procedures. Theelastic ar-teries or conducting arterieshave a high density ofelastic fibers that help them withstand the pressure changes that occur in the cardiac cycle. to explore the elastic properties of the major blood vessels. An experimental study to assess and compare patency and intimal hyperplastic response. suggest why arteries close to the heart have more elastic fibres in their walls than arteries further away from the heart. This fully-resourced lesson explores how the structure of arteries, veins and capillaries relates to their functions. Metarterioles. Discover (and save!) Elastic Arteries (Aorta and Branches) • Elastic arteries are closest to the heart and experience the greatest pressure as the heart forces blood into them. c. arteries receive blood from ventricles/heart / carry blood away from heart. Elastic arteries can stretch and recoil again in response to the pressure. Aortic pressure is highest at the aorta and becomes less pulsatile and lower pressure as blood vessels divide into arteries, arterioles, and capillaries such that flow is slow and smooth for gases and nutrient exchange. 1. Wear eye protection Disinfect the work space and wash your hands Cushion the bench to stop masses falling. In part B they look at the histology of the blood vessels using a microscope. Boardworks Ltd 2008 Arteries, capillaries and veins. Structure and function of tissues . The artery with mass varied from 10-29%. Purpose: Elastic recoil of the arterial wall has been shown to be responsible for a significant loss of luminal area after balloon angioplasty in the coronary arteries, but it has not been well studied in the peripheral arteries.
