Cardiovascular System—Physiology of the Great Vessels
Lecture no. 4 from the course: Understanding the Human Body: An Introduction to Anatomy and Physiology, 2nd Edition
Taught by Professor Anthony A. Goodman | 45 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course
In this lecture, we examine the physiology of the large blood vessels—how they control blood flow, regulate blood pressure, and control bleeding when ruptured. We will also examine the composition of blood and the functions of each of its parts—plasma, white blood cells, and red blood cells.
