This course covers the material of content category 4B of the official MCAT exam content outline.
Since antiquity, many medical and healing traditions have established a relationship between fluids and the functioning of the human body. Examples include the humoral theory of illness and the importance of water and the other four elements in traditional Chinese medicine. Today, the expansion of our understanding of physics, along with advances in anatomy and physiology, has enabled us to study the mechanics of two important fluids: air and blood (not ignoring lymph). Fluid mechanics applied to physiology falls under the subfield of biophysics, which has allowed us to understand the physical properties of physiological and pathological phenomena.
In this course, students will be introduced to the basics of fluid mechanics as applied to liquids and gases. For optimal comprehension, students are required to have a college-level understanding of physics, chemistry, and calculus.
The video was a great help in making me understand easily on the topic of the gas phase. I think it was very educational for the students who struggles to understand well the topic.
Amazing teacher, straight to the point, clear way of explaining.
This class was great for me when I was studying the respiratory system physiology.
I just love this Professor. He has made physiology quite simple. He is a true professor. I hope to meet him one time and gain from his vast knowledge face to face.
