Teaching Material for this Module


This module introduces you to the anatomy and physiology of the cardiorespiratory system, how it works in normal subjects, and some of the major pathological conditions that can occur. As you probably already know, respiratory diseases (e.g. asthma, tuberculosis, lung cancer) and cardiovascular disease (atherosclerosis, strokes, myocardial infarction) are major causes of disability and death in the UK.

Learning delivery is through a mix of lectures, practicals, microanatomy sessions, problem-based learning (PBLs) and self-directed learning.
