On successful completion of this unit, you will be able to discuss the structure and function of the respiratory and cardiovascular systems and relate physiological function to common clinical tests of cardiorespiratory physiology. You will study the pathophysiology, diagnosis and treatment of a range of cardiac and respiratory conditions including acute coronary syndromes, cardiac failure, and chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases. Skill development in spirometry and electrocardiography (ECG) and best practice measurement will occur through practical exercises. You will also gain skills in case management and clinical interventions during the residential school to contextualize knowledge of respiratory and coronary care.
