Cardiorespiratory 2 - MEDI301

This is an intensive unit aimed at extending the understanding of the cardiovascular and respiratory body systems developed in MEDI201 (Cardiorespiratory 1). Learners will develop: a deep understanding of cardio-respiratory physiology, knowledge of the mechanisms that maintain homeostasis in these systems, and the ability to relate cardiovascular and respiratory diseases to underlying pathophysiological pathways.

Students will identify key cardio-respiratory diseases and create a 'health campaign' targeting differing audiences with a view to summarising and broadcasting a holistic analysis of the impact of cardio-respiratory disease on individuals, as well as local and global communities. Learners will also critically consider experimental design and interpretation of scientific and medical evidence in cardio-respiratory contexts.
