Life is identified by breath and heartbeat. In this liberally illustrated three-lecture course, three professors of medicine will reveal just how exquisitely detailed, developed and integrated the heart, lungs and their systems are. Using newly available images which show just how beautifully fluids such as air and blood flow and move in the systems, this course will explicate the anatomy and processes involved in heart and lung functions of both children and adults.
