The Goal of this activity is to provide learners with basic knowledge of the functional and clinical anatomy, histology, and imaging of the thorax with an emphasis on the heart and lungs. In this activity, learners will engage with the content by reviewing lecture videos, links to related readings, downloadable resources, and quizzes.
This continuing education activity has been designed for physicians, fellows, residents, medical students, physician assistants, respiratory therapists, and other healthcare professionals.
Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:
• Define and discuss the structures that make up the thoracic wall and how muscles, bones, and
cartilages of the wall participate in the process of respiration
• Compare and contrast the regional differences of structures situated in the mediastinum
• Describe the differences in the anatomy of the right versus the left lung, the arrangement of
structures in the root of each lung, and how each lung utilizes its pleural relationships to
• Summarize the differences in the structure of the atria and ventricles of the heart, how these
chambers contract, and how this activity is correlated with when the atrioventricular and
semilunar valves are open or closed
• Analyze and identify anatomic structures in plain films or other imaging modalities
• Compare and contrast the differences in the histologic structure of the walls of the heart,
bronchi, bronchioles and lung alveoli
Successful completion of this educational activity and receipt of certificate of credit includes achieving a minimum score of 80% on the post-test.
