The Heart as a Pump
  • Hands-on Cardiac Function Simulator
  • Designed for hands on collaborative learning by teams of 3-4 students, this working model simulates all of the key functions of the human heart. Through a series of open-ended investigations which emphasize problem solving, students will learn:

    • To measure cardiac output and the factors and conditions which affect cardiac output.
    • To collect quantitative, experimental data and use it to explain heart function.
    • To solve problems and predict how different conditions influence and affect cardiac function.
    • To relate the mechanical function of the heart, to heart structural anatomy.
  • Equally well suited to programs in community colleges, 4-year institutions and professional schools, the complete learning package includes:
    • the pumping heart model with support base
    • illustrated manual which incorporates a 10-page instructor guide
    • set-up instructions
    • a 3-4 hour hands on inquiry exercise, directly insertable into any anatomy and physiology curriculum
  • Hands-on lab activities reinforce learning and maximize retention
