30 Day Evaluation Details:

Cardiovascular disease is the number one cause of death in the United States. Indeed, cardiovascular disease is responsible for nearly 40% of the deaths occurring annually in this country. Nurses and other healthcare professionals must demonstrate knowledge of the anatomy, physiology, normalities, and abnormalities of the cardiovascular system in order to help combat its devastating effects.

The purpose of this online tutorial is to help nurses accurately assess the cardiac system, identify normal findings, and recognize abnormal findings. This online tutorial is intended for students and practitioners of the nursing profession who wish to learn more about the anatomy and physiology of the cardiac system. The tutorial also includes important aspects of patient assessment and nursing interventions as related to this vital body system.

Content Overview:

The tutorial is divided into six modules. The first four modules are instructional units. The fifty module is a game to help learners evaluate their knowledge of the anatomical structures of the cardiovascular system. The final module is a test bank.

  • Module 1: Anatomy of the Cardiac System
  • Module 2: Physiology of the Cardiac System
  • Module 3: Assessment: Normal Findings and Nursing Implications
  • Module 4: Assessment: Abnormal Findings and Nursing Implications
  • Module 5: The Name Game
  • Module 6: Test Bank

The tests in the test bank cover all of the tutorial modules. Students are given their test results at the completion of each test accompanied by correct answers and rationale.

Test results are recorded in databases on the EDGT server and are available for retrieval and review by both instructors and students.

Learning Objectives:

At the completion of this tutorial, learners should be able to:

  • Identify the anatomical components of the cardiac system and related structures.
