BHSC 2219 - Anatomy and Physiology for Cardiology

Basic Health Sciences Part-time Studies Course

School of Computing and Academic Studies

To support you and your education, BCIT is adapting applied learning in formats appropriate to the unfolding global situation. All PTS classes are being delivered in an online format unless you are notified otherwise.

Course Details

BHSC 2219 is a Human Anatomy and Physiology course designed specifically for allied health professionals in the field of Cardiology. As such, its major focus is structure and function of the heart. Anatomy of the heart and the relation of the heart to thoracic structures are covered. The structure of the heart muscle cell or myocyte is related to its electrical and mechanical properties. A discussion of the electrical events of the cardiac cycle serves to provide the electrophysiological basis of the ECG. Mechanical events of the cycle are related to electrical events and to the pressure and volume changes in the heart chambers. Structure and function of the blood vessels as components of the circulatory system are covered. A unit on circulatory physiology serves to integrate functions of the heart, blood, and vessels. Discussions of the respiratory and urinary systems as they influence, and are influenced by, the circulation are included.
