In the second of our two-part series for the circulatory system, we discuss the chemical and physical science applications of the circulatory system. The latter has big overlaps with fluid dynamics, gas exchange, and even Ohm’s law. Join us to see how the MCAT tests the circulatory system from biological angles and beyond.
The Circulatory System, Part 2
At a glance
Apply equations about the heart and understand how they are derived from equations in fluids and circuits
Read graphs and diagrams about the circulatory system
Fluids and circuits in relation to the circulatory system
AEDs and pacemakers
Cardiac action potential
Gas exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide
Hemoglobin structure and shape
The buffer system of the blood
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.
