Cardiovascular Disorders – Med-Surg Nursing

by Prof. Lawes

Cardiovascular disease is one of the leading causes of chronic disease and death worldwide. Though patients of all age groups can be affected by different cardiovascular pathologies, here we’ll focus on adults.

In this class, we’ll review the foundational anatomy and physiology of the cardiovascular system, including how the heart’s electrical and conduction systems function.

You’ll also learn about cardiac monitoring, electrocardiography, hypertension, coronary artery disease, and acute coronary syndrome.

Knowledge of the cardiovascular system touches nearly all specialties, so it’s essential to have working knowledge of this very important bodily system.

Good Breakdown
By Lizandro R. on 22. November 2022 for Atherosclerosis: Pathophysiology (Nursing)

Great Breakdown and explanation. You guys make things so easy to understand. I get really frustrated with the book since it's really hard for me to sit down and read through a whole chapter, so it's a relief to have such a great breakdown on these subjects. Thank you

Complex topic explained simply
By Laura Melissa V. on 14. October 2022 for Myocardial Infarction (MI): In a Nutshell (Nursing)

Very well explained. The STEMI and NSTEMI classifications finally made sense to me. And I very much appreciate the EKG interpretation tips. It was all very practical and high-yield. The artwork was simple and very helpful too.

Amazing for med students :)

One of the best teachers in Lecturio. Acts sweetly and speaks easily.

One drink a day for males and females
By Riley M. on 08. March 2022 for Hypertension: Risks (Nursing)

The only issue with this lecture is that now one drink per day is recommended for both females AND males. It is no longer two drinks a day for males
