In the first of our two-part series for the circulatory system, we discuss the biological aspect of the circulatory system. This webinar covers the think sequence of blood flow, anatomy of the heart, and how fetal and maternal circulations are different. We also review all the key physiological concepts you will need to know for the test.
The Circulatory System, Part 1
At a glance
Calculate cardiac output
Differentiate between ECG and ECHO techniques
Predict capillary to tissue fluid flow
Determine blood types and assess blood transfusion matches
Circulatory system anatomy and flow of oxygenated and deoxygenated blood
Basic heart monitoring techniques such as ECG, ECHO, cuff
Red blood cell structure and hemoglobin structure
The oxygen dissociated curve
On the MCAT
The circulatory system is the most content and skill rich system on the MCAT. It has a huge biological footprint, but also connects to many areas of basic sciences
It is impossible to cover all topics that you might see on the MCAT related to this system, but most of the low yield/other information the passage will provide
I think these webinars are really helpful! I like how they’re styled like a TED talk, so they don’t interfere with the day, but they’re really helpful review 🙂
I found everything helpful about these webinars: the explanations, the illustrations, just everything!
Amazing material conveyed concisely and in great detail!
The wealth of information and sample questions are great.
