The cardiovascular system supplies blood throughout the body. It consists of arteries, veins, capillaries, and the heart, which work in concert to ensure adequate blood flow to tissues. Adapting to the demands of a given situation, it can react to various internal and external stimuli to alter the rate and quantity of the blood delivered. Regulation of the cardiovascular system occurs via a complex network of feedback loops and stimulus–response relationships, such as alterations in blood volume, adrenal feedback, renal influence, electrolyte levels, and osmolarity. The unique anatomical organization of the heart serves to guide its function and provides a basic framework to understand its pathologies. A basic understanding of circuits (resistance and capacitance) goes a long way in comprehending both cardiovascular medicine and medicine as a whole..
The lecturer did a great job explaining the anatomy of the heart, and with ease too.
easy to follow and the voice is very clear. useful images are given.
I think Richard is the best, I really enjoy his lectures, thank you very much
