    1. consists of epithelial cells loosely bound to each other forming a very permeable layer between the lumen of blood vessels and surrounding tissue
    2. forms the epithelium lining of all blood vessels and the heart
    3. is a flattened (squamous) layer of epithelial cells
    4. is a very important selective barrier between the blood and cells/tissues of the body
    5. is immediately adjacent to the blood
    1. The right ventricle pumps deoxygenated blood to the lungs via the pulmonary trunk
    2. Blood is returned from all body organs to the left atrium
    3. The left ventricle pumps blood to the lungs to be oxygenated
    4. The right ventricle pumps deoxygenated blood to the lungs via the aorta
    5. Blood returns from the lungs into the right atrium
    1. epicardium
    2. endocardium
    3. endothelium
    4. myocardium
    5. mesothelium
    1. ventricularis
    2. fibrosa
    3. spongiosum or spongiosa
    4. papillary muscle layer
    5. endocardium
    1. are joined "end to end" by adherent junctions and gap junctions
    2. are striated and multi-nucleated like skeletal muscle cells
    3. are striated and have a peripheral nucleus like smooth muscle cells
    4. are not striated and have a single central nucleus like smooth muscle cells
    5. make up the epicardial layer of the heart
