Catalog Description: The goal of this course is to understand the concepts and mechanisms of systemic cardiovascular physiology in human and a variety of animal systems. The goal of this course is to understand the concepts and mechanisms of systemic cardiovascular physiology in human and animal systems. The course assumes a basic knowledge of human or animal physiology. We build on that knowledge by examining regulation and control of systems as well as their structure-function relationships. We will also introduce pathophysiological mechanisms relevant for clinical diagnosis and therapy. There is substantial emphasis on engineering approaches, quantitative methods, and simulation.
