Arterial Tonometry in the Classroom
Werner, Timothy; Boutagy, Nabil
European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, v3 n3 p105-114 2015
The study of hemodynamic physiology utilizing traditional methods presents many challenges and limitations to educators. The goal of the educator is to provide the student with an adequate understanding of the basic hemodynamic anatomy and physiology governing blood flow, cardiac cycle and associated Korotkoff sounds, and the pathophysiology of vessel-related diseases. Several teachable moments reinforcing hemodynamic concepts are often overlooked when using traditional methods. The incorporation of arterial tonometry seeks to improve these shortcomings by offering a broader perspective of vascular physiology and introducing unique pathologies of the vasculature such as arterial stiffness and endothelial disorders.
