Anatomy of the Human Heart - Distance Learning Programs

ADVENTURES IN MEDICINE & Science (AIMS) Anatomy of the Human Heart

- a demonstration of a variety of human hearts tailored to meet the needs and educational level of the students. Cardiovascular anatomy and physiology are taught by a physician, medical or graduate student. Pathological material, including hearts with pacemakers, bypass grafts, valve replacements, hypertensive changes and documented myocardial infarcts, are used to illustrate these and other clinical problems. The following topics will be covered:

  1. Blood, cellular and fluid components
  2. Coverings of the heart
  3. Gross structures of the heart and its chambers
  4. Major blood vessels
  5. Circulatory pathways and changes induced by pathology
  6. Basics of cardiac physiology including the conducting system, cardiac cycle, heart sounds, murmurs and post-surgical complications
