The ventricles then pump blood to the lungs and the rest of the body. The heart is a muscle and responds just like any other muscle in the body. Every muscle fiber or cell must contract at the same time, which squeezes the blood through the one-way heart valves. The blood moves forward under pressure but not backward, so there is a moment immediately after contraction when blood pressure goes down, but not to zero. Flowing blood is not under the same pressure throughout the system, which is one of the differences compared to an aircraft hydraulic system.

The second part of the brain is the midbrain. It contains the hypothalamus, which produces hormones that affect temperature, growth, and other physiological activities. The hindbrain, which is the third part of the brain, is the center of regulation of many of the body’s basic functions, including breathing, blood pressure, heart rate, and many others. All these parts, as well as others, define how we think, learn, process sensory information, and consciously act. Our mind is the “computer” that describes our abilities, personality and intelligence.

About 55 percent of blood is serum, and about 90 percent of serum is water. One of the blood cells is a red blood cell, which physically carries oxygen molecules attached to a chemical on the cell called hemoglobin. The comparison of partial pressures and the percentage of hemoglobin saturation is called the dissociation curve (Fig. 2-5). Inadequate oxygen to the cells (hypoxia) will occur when the saturation goes below 72 percent, where the curve drops off quickly with decreasing oxygen partial pressure.
