The course begins by examining the anatomy and physiology of the cardiovascular system. You will learn about the role that each organ has in cardiovascular function and examine the most common factors that cause these organs to become diseased within the body. You will study a range of procedures which doctors use to determine whether or not a patient is in need of cardiovascular surgery.

You will then review the duties that nurses must perform to ensure that their patients are both physically and mentally prepared for such clinical procedures and are comfortable after they are carried out. This section concludes by examining a range of cardiovascular disorders which you are likely to encounter as part of your clinical nursing career. The course then introduces you to the most common complications experienced by patients after cardiovascular surgery.
