This podcast covers the cardiovascular system and a bit of fluid mechanics. First, I cover cardiovascular anatomy. Then, I talk about the following topics regarding the heart: function, contraction, cell types in the heart, and its role in regulation of blood pressure. Lastly (44:00 min-1hr), I tie in a few fluid mechanics topics that are high yield on the MCAT and apply to the cardiovascular system, including: total peripheral resistance, viscosity, the continuity equation, and the Bernoulli equation.
