  29. Outflow of the right ventricle
    conus arteriosus (infundibulum)
  30. Muscular elevations of the RV
  31. what separates the muscular inflow of the RV from the smooth outflow?
    the supraventricular crest
  32. three leaflets of the tricuspid valve
    • anterior
    • posterior
    • septal
  33. Two parts of the intervetricular septum

  34. What carries the conduction form the IV septum to the papillary muscles
    • the moderator band (septomarginal trabecula)
    • to the anterior papillary muscle
  35. level of the pulmonary valve
    3rd costal cartilage
  36. function of pulmonary sinus
    to allow blood to get behind pulmonary valve leaflets so they do not stick to the walls
  37. The interior of the left atrium
    • large smooth wall and a small pectinate muscle
    • four pulmonary veins
    • thicker wall then right atrium
  38. The smooth wall of the left atrium is formed by?
    • absorption of parts of the embryonic pulmonary veins
    • the rough wall is the primordial left atrium

  41. Level of the aortic valve
    3rd costal cartilage
  42. Most prevalent congenital heart defect
  43. Most frequent valve abnormality
    • aortic stenosis
    • results in LV hypertrophy

  49. location of the SA node
    • anteriolateral wall
    • just deep to the epicardium at the junction of the SVC and the right atrium
    • the superior end of the sulcus terminals
