Cardiac physiology describes the processes required to maintain the pumping function of the heart. The immediate sustenance of life requires the heart to pump blood continuously from the moment of its differentiation in the womb. There are a multiplicity of biophysical principles that allow for the conduction of action potentials and contractility of muscle fibers.
In this course, the student will be introduced to the basic concepts of bioelectrical current generation and conduction; the electrocardiogram and the principles behind the generation of its tracing; the cardiac cycle and all the events that take place synchronously during its phases; and finally the basic principles of cardiac mechanics.
For optimal comprehension, the student must have a preliminary understanding of molecular and cellular biology, emphasizing biochemistry, the histology of cardiac tissue, and the physiology of bioelectrical conduction. The parallel study of the anatomy of the heart is encouraged.
I enjoy the simplicity they present the topics with. Definitely worth watching before the class for a better understanding.
Thad is awesome He made the subject so easy. The way he explains the concept is excellent and makes any topic easy to understand.
Good job.. Great tutor.. I really enjoyed your teachings... Thanks
I liked it very much. Lecture are well organised and Professors do their Job
