Test Your Knowledge of the Cardio Vascular System

Of the twelve body systems, taught in our anatomy and physiology online course, the cadio vascular system has always been the most interesting to me. Possibly because I had heart surgery as a young baby, I always wanted to know what had happened to me.  I had a valve that didn't close during my birth which led to the mixing of oxygenated and de-oxgenated blood and led to me not thriiving or growing. Happy to say as soon as i t was fixed I was as right as rain! The Cardio vascular system works closely with the respiratory and lymphatic systems and we will provide some questions for those in the next blogs. For now, test your knowledge.

Testimonials

"The anatomy and physiology courses are very easy to use, you don't have to be a computer wiz. The tutor giving the lectures is very good and it feels as if your are sitting in the classroom with her. I like the fact that you are able to pause the films to complete worksheets and that you can go back and watch the films over again. Overall, it's a very good course and well worth the money."
