Like the James Brown of the Body
As I started grading the first Pathophysiology Exam on Cardiovascular Function in Health and Disease, the first material I saw was in answer to my questions about the flow of blood through the heart and to the rest of the body. I can’t say that I was happy with the results, but I want to emphasize that this is very basic material that we discussed and outlined in our class, but that I had also assumed was covered in Anatomy and Physiology last semester. After two passes through this material, it should be easily accessible in every student’s mind.
As a reminder of these functions and the flow of blood, here is Khan Academy’s summary of this material:
I believe that that is important foundational material, and you may have a pop quiz on it at any time.
