183.638.01 MECHANISMS OF CARDIOPULMONARY CONTROL
Focuses on reflex control of the respiratory and cardiovascular systems. Discusses the various receptors, central integration, and effector mechanisms of the two systems, and examines their roles under resting and stressful conditions, e.g., factors involved in respiratory rhythmicity at rest, cardiopulmonary acclimatization to altitude, and adaptation to hemorrhage. Blends didactic material with student-led discussion of pertinent journal articles and monographic literature.
