  • The cerebral circulation,
  • The coronary circulation, and
  • The cutaneous circulation

Not worth the high price of this service
By Jessica F. on 20. January 2018 for Vascular Physiology

The lecturer frequently mispronounces words and stumbles as he speaks quite a bit. It was very distracting and made it hard to focus on what he was trying to say. The course needed more videos that takes about how different variables that impact Guyton curves. The questions asked after each lecture were not always covered during the lecture.

good lecture
By David M. on 18. January 2018 for Combination of Cardiac and Vascular Function Curves โ€“ Regulation of Venous Pressure

Good lecture but annoying how prof. said IONotropy when it is iNOtropy.

Nice video, succinct, and clear. Cleared some concepts up like why the mean systemic pressure changes or does not change.

Very concise. Great explanations. Great distilling down the most important information.
