    Transcript

    00:00 So, in summary, we’ve talked about terminology such as sclerosis, embolism, thrombosis, stenosis, occlusion, dissection, necrosis and ischemia. Ischemia = lack of blood flow. I’ve mentioned that a number of times, ischemic heart disease being the number one cause of death in the world.

    00:19 And then we’ve talked about the various criteria that we’re going to use when we talk about each disease: the definition, the epidemiology, the etiology – or cause – the pathogenesis – that is the abnormal pathology that goes on, both in physiology and in anatomy – symptoms, diagnosis, therapy, prognosis – or outlook – and, finally, how to prevent this disease.
