Arterial Diseases

by Joseph Alpert, MD

The cardiovascular system permits blood to circulate throughout the body, thereby transporting nutrients, gases, hormones, and blood cells to and from every cell. Pathology of the cardiovascular system can be life-threatening. Hypertension, for example, leads to multiple end-organ complications. Hypotension is even more acutely life-threatening, so the causes and emergency management options are important to understand. Additionally, atherosclerosis, like hypertension, is a chronic disease that can lead to abrupt complications, such as an ischemic leg or myocardial infarction. Again, both chronic and emergency management of atherosclerosis should be understood. This course covers the pathology of arterial disease as well as its diagnosis and management.
