Cardiac Dynamics Introduction

Nils S. Peterson (Washington State University)
Screen Shots | System Requirements
The Cardiac Dynamics Introduction is a tutorial composed of four HyperCard stacks - The Cardiac Dynamics Intro stack, The Heart Plumberís Kit, the Pressure-Time animation, and the Pressure Volume Loop animation - that can be used to explore some of the basic dynamics of the heart. Each of the stacks can be used as a stand-alone tool or they can all be accessed through The Cardiac Dynamics Intro stack. The Cardiac Dynamics Intro stack also allows you to access the Isolated Heart Laboratory simulation so that you can continue your explorations of the physiology of the heart.
