Blood pressure is caused by resistance blood encounters as it moves through blood vessels. Ever wonder how blood pressure is measured? It is commonly recorded by measuring both systolic and diastolic pressures. … Lagi Systolic pressure is the point of the highest pressure, when the ventricles are contracting and pressure is highest in the arteries. Diastolic pressure is when the ventricles are relaxed and the semilunar valves are closed. The average systolic pressure is 120 millimeters of mercury. The average diastolic pressure is 70 to 80 millimeters of mercury. Learn more about blood vessel structure and function:

The glands of the endocrine system secrete hormones throughout the body. Today we’ll be taking a virtual tour through the endocrine system’s primary organs. The hypothalamus, pituitary gland, pineal gland, thyroid, parathyroids, adrenal glands, and pancreas. Let’s start our tour at the main control centers for the endocrine system. The hypothalamus and pituitary glands located in the brain. The hypothalamus is the bridge between the nervous system and the endocrine system. It receives signals from the other areas of the brain and translates them into hormones which travel to the pituitary gland. A The pituitary gland has two lobes, the anterior lobe and posterior lobe. The hypothalamus produces two hormones, anti diuretic hormones and oxytocin which are stored in the posterior lobe for layer release into the bloodstream. Hormones from the hypothalamus regulate the release of the anterior pituitary hormones which in turn regulate various endocrine glands throughout the body such as the thyroid, adrenal glands, gonads and mammory glands. The anterior pituitary gland also secretes human growth hormones which travels to the muscles, bones and liver. Before the brain, let’s take a quick look at the pineal gland. This pine cone shaped gland at the back of the diancephalon secrete melatonin which regulates the body sleep patterns. The thyroid and parathyroid glands are located in the neck. The thyroid regulates metabolism by secreting T3 and T four. It also secretes calcitonin which helps regulate blood calcium levels. The parathyroid secrete PTH or parathyroid hormone which works in a complementary way to calciton in regulating blood calcium. The adrenal glands are pyramid shape and sit on top of the kidneys. They have an outer cortex and an inner medulla. The cortex secrete numerous steroid hormones such as cortisol, eldosterone, androgens and estrogens. The medulla secretes epinephrine and noreepinephrine which play key roles in the body’s short term response to stress. Also known as the fight or flight response. The pancreas does double duty as an accessory digestive organ and an endocrine gland. Cells in the pancreatic eyelets secrete insulin and glucagon which regulate levels of glucose in the blood into the bloodstream I Want to learn more about the endocrine system?
