Certificate of Completion

OVERVIEW

In our Anatomy of the Cardiovascular and Respiratory Systems lecture series, we bring a new and better way of teaching anatomy, histology and imaging of the heart and lungs using the extraordinary images from textbooks and atlases published by Elsevier. Using 3-D simulations of the heart and lung developed by BioLucid, and embryologic animations from Elsevier, we provide a dramatic way to enhance the understanding of how these organs function.

OBJECTIVES

  • 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 function.

  • 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.
