Learning objectives
After passing the course, the student has knowledge of:
  1. The components of the cardiovascular system and can describe their individual and integrated functions.
  2. The structure of heart and vessel, and can describe how these structures support their function.
  3. The composition and properties of blood and can outline the role of blood in physiology and hemostasis.
  4. The basic pathology and pathophysiology of the cardiovascular system and can describe and explain the abnormal structure and function.
  5. The basic biochemical and physical mechanisms relevant for cardiovascular functioning and can translate medical questions to technological application in multidisciplinary settings.
Content
The structure, development, (patho)physiology and pathology of the heart, vessel, and blood are discussed systematically, with special attention to technological aspects and clinical applications.
 
Heart
1. Anatomy and morphology of the heart
2. Physiology (cardiac cycle, mechanics, ECG) and adaptation
3. Pathophysiology of the heart
4. Diseases (including ischemic heart disease, arrhythmias, valvular heart disease, heart failure)
 
Vessel
1. Anatomy and structure of the vascular system (arteries, veins, capillaries)
2. Physiology of vessels (mechanics, hemostasis, exchange) and adaptation
3. Pathophysiology
4. Diseases (including atherosclerosis, peripheral vascular disease)
 
Blood
1. Components of blood
2. Physiological functions of blood (temperature control, nutrient distribution, waste management, gas exchange)
3. Physical properties of the blood and hemodynamics
4. Hemostasis, coagulation, and fibrinolysis
5. Pathophysiology
6. Diseases (including hemorrhage and thrombosis)

Short promotional description of the course
Het hartvaatstelsel is een essentieel fysiologisch systeem van het menselijk lichaam. Belangrijke acute aandoeningen en chronische ziekten vinden hun oorsprong in afwijkingen aan dit systeem. Begrip van de gezonde en aangetaste structuur en functie van hart, bloedvaten en bloed is onmisbaar bij de ontwikkeling van technologie voor preventie, diagnose en therapie, maar bijvoorbeeld ook voor het volgen van postnatale groei of de ontwikkeling van trainingsschema's in de sport.
Short promotional description of the course
The cardiovascular system is an essential system of the human body. Important acute conditions and chronic diseases originate from abnormalities of this system. Concept of healthy and diseased structure and function of the heart, vessel, and blood is indispensable for the development of technology for prevention, diagnosis and therapy, but also for monitoring postnatal growth or development of training programs in sport.

Remark
-
Peer teaching

General
Bij de peer teaching zullen studenten zelf onderdelen van het vak voorbereiden en interactief doceren in de vorm van een kort hoorcollege. Succesvolle uitvoering van dit onderdeel, alsmede de demonstratie en practica noodzaakt een studentengroep van max 100 studenten. Bij een groter aantal studenten zullen de practica geen doorgang kunnen vinden.
