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 course assumes a basic knowledge of human physiology. We build on that knowledge by examining the adaptation of other species to maintain homeostasis. We will also introduce pathophysiological mechanisms relevant for clinical diagnosis and therapy. There is substantial emphasis on engineering approaches, quantitative methods, and simulation.
