The following tutorials have been developed to provide a logical sequence for learning about the heart and circulation. The first block of tutorials focuses on normal physiology, and the second block emphasizes the pathophysiological mechanisms of several cardiovascular disorders. Because the pathophysiology tutorials assume a basic knowledge of normal physiology, it is helpful to first examine the normal physiology tutorials before the pathophysiology tutorials.
