Knowledge of hemodynamic principles is crucial to an understanding of cardiovascular physiology. This topic can be effectively taught by discussing simple physical principles and basic algebraic equations. A variety of examples from everyday observations can be used to illustrate the physical principles underlying the flow of blood through the circulation, thereby giving the student an experiential feel for the topic in addition to an understanding of theory. Moreover, opportunities abound for… CONTINUE READING
