Introduction to the Cardiovascular System 1.02

Learn about the body"s delivery system with this Introduction to the Cardiovascular System learning program. A.D.A.M., Inc. provides fully animated, fully narrated, interactive eLearning programs.

The program begins with an overview of the cardiovascular system, followed by an explanation of its components and function. You will then learn about the different components in the blood and how they relate to hemostasis. You will also learn about the structure of the heart, about the cardiac cycle, and about the conduction system, which ensures the rhythmicity of the pulse. And lastly, you will learn about the different types of blood vessels and the roles they play in hemodynamics and blood pressure.

Progress checks throughout the program will help reinforce key concepts. A final assessment at the end of the program will evaluate your ability to meet the learning objectives.

This program will cover 47 topics and will take you approximately 45 minutes to complete.

Upon completion of this learning program, you will be able to:
*Identify the components of the blood.
*Explain the function of blood.
*Identify the components of the heart.
*Explain the function of the heart.
*Identify the components of blood vessels.
*Explain the function of blood vessels.

Program Features:
*Fully-narrated and animated learning
*Interactive content
*Evaluations throughout the program
*Transcript accessible at all times
*Glossary available at all times
*Easy navigational tools
