Assuming a heart stops beating, what cellular process will be affected from the loss of oxygen, blood glucose, and waste removal?

Answer 1

Cellular respiration will be affected.

Cellular respiration is a set of processes that take place in the cells of organisms.

Mostly by glycolysis, the Tricarboxylic Acid Cycle, and the electron transport chain, the cells convert incoming oxygen and glucose into energy and waste products.

The blood delivers oxygen and nutrients to the cells.

When the heart stops pumping, the cells no longer receive their vital supplies.

The process of glycolysis stops when the supply of glucose and oxygen stops.

The components already in the cell quickly get used up.

The waste products accumulate in the cell because there is no blood flow to transport carbon dioxide to the lungs or other wastes to the kidneys.

With no incoming nutrients nor outgoing wastes, the cell stops working.

The muscles that contract your diaphragm and heart and the neurons in your brain cease functioning, and you are dead.

Answer 2

Shortly said, cells die.

About half of your body will still receive oxygen as a result of difusion (caused by the difference in CO2/O2 concentration in the cells), which means that half of your body cells will undergo mild decay and die. If you were to halt the circulatory process, approximately 50% of your blood would be oxygenated and the other 50% would not be.

• Depending on your level of physical activity, your cells can survive without oxygen for one to two minutes. After that, they begin to die and irreversibly damage your organs.

• You will run the risk of passing out at any time after the first minute because the brain uses a significant amount of glucose and about 25% of the oxygen the body gets. • At three minutes, you still have a chance of being reanimated (by applying an electric shock to induce depolarization/repolarization in the cardiac muscles), but you will have irreversible brain damage.

• A heart stroke victim has very little chance of survival because if they are oxygen-deprived for five minutes, they are definitely dead and nothing can be done for them.

Though, assuming the cells are still getting some oxygen somehow but the blood isn't circulating, maybe someone can give you a better explanation on those so i'll let my answer to be double-checked. Waste removal and glucose take longer to affect the body severely, and by that time you'd be surely dead.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
