Slide 2: Cardiovascular System (CVS) - ‘Rasavaha Srotas’- originates at the heart and ten blood vessels connected to it. Cardiovascular System Slide 3: What Is ‘Rasa’? ‘Rasa’ is a general name given to all fluids that flow in the body. Flow of fluids is obvious in the extra cellular compartment (ECF). Therefore, ‘Rasa’ indicates ECF in general. Slide 4: ‘Rasa’- As Nutrient Plasma After the normal digestion, the minute form of the digested material gets absorbed and enters circulation in the form of ‘Rasa’. Heart plays an important role in pumping it. Slide 5: Autonomic Control of Heart ‘Vyana Vayu’ is responsible for ejection of blood by the Heart. This ejects the blood out of the heart and also ensures that it circulates all over the body continuously. So, ‘Vyana Vayu’ refers to Autonomic Nervous Control in this context. Slide 6: Circulation in General All tissues in the body are nourished in a fashion similar to that of a moving wheel. This means that the nourishing fluid keeps circulating repeatedly. Slide 7: CVS: A Closed Circuit Blood (Rasa) is first ejected out of the heart, and is then carried forward to all parts of the body. Finally, this ‘Rasa’ returns to the Heart through the blood vessels known as ‘Siras’. So, all blood vessels basically originate at heart. Slide 8: Structure of Blood Vessels As the vessels go on giving branches, they become narrower and narrower, just like the venations seen on the leaves. Slide 10: Autorhythmicity of Heart Heart performs Systolic and Diastolic activities repeatedly on it’s own. It also reflects the well being or illness of the body. Slide 11: Heart-Anatomy and Functioning Heart appears as an inverted bud of Lotus. It keeps on functioning (contracting and relaxing) all through the day and night. Slide 12: Mean Flow Velocity of Blood The velocity of blood is maximum at the beginning and it goes on decreasing as it flows farther away. This is just similar to the decreasing velocities of sound, fire and water respectively. (Mean flow velocity is maximum at Aorta and is minimum in the capillaries.) Slide 13: Thanks!
