This course covers: blood, blood pressure, pulmonary ventilation, gas exchange & transport, blood flow and gas transport, cardio respiratory control, cardio respiratory disease, & more.

COURSE STRUCTURE

There are 7 lessons as follows:

  1. The Science of Blood
  2. Blood Pressure
  3. Pulmonary Ventilation
  4. Gas Exchange & Transport
  5. Blood Flow & Gas Transport
  6. Cardio Respiratory Control
  7. Cardio Respiratory Disease

Each lesson culminates in an assignment which is submitted to the school, marked by the school\'s tutors and returned to you with any relevant suggestions, comments, and if necessary, extra reading.
