Cardiac Physiology

by Thad Wilson, PhD

The heart is a powerful organ which performs around its service around the clock. Did you know that it pumps 7000 liters of blood throughout the body—every day? The autonomous control of the heart and unique muscle structure are responsible for this.

In this course, Prof. Thad Wilson will provide you with a basic understanding of heart mechanics. You will discover the heart's role as the center of blood circulation.

Learn more about the ECG, how to interpret the results, and how to choose treatments accordingly. Deepen your knowledge of heart sounds and heart pressure. Other topics covered are:

  • Frank-Starling curve
  • Membrane potential
  • Heart rate ranges and gap junction channels
  • Inotropism

You will further have the chance to deepen your knowledge with the help of the corresponding download material and challenge yourself by answering quiz questions.

Start learning online and prepare yourself for your exams—with Prof. Thad Wilson and Lecturio!
