According to the latest data from the CDC (2020) heart disease continues as the leading cause of death for men, women, and people of most racial and ethnic groups in the United States accounting for about 647,000 deaths each year—that’s 1 in every 4 deaths. Understanding the contributors to heart disease is critical to its prevention. In this module you will learn about the anatomy and physiology of both the respiratory and cardiovascular systems. Emphasis will be placed on the central neurological structure governing these systems and how pathophysiology in those systems act as a comorbidity to the presence of respiratory and cardiovascular disease. Examination and diagnostic techniques specific to these systems will be discussed and demonstrated as to develop better nonpharmaceutical treatment and management strategies.
The National Institute of Health (2020) estimates 60 to 70 million people are affected by chronic digestive disease per year in the United states. It is also estimated that 43% of individuals suffer from intermittent digestive disorders. Also, according to the NIH (2020) about 9% of men and about 11% of women of reproductive age in the United States have experienced fertility problems. In this module you will learn the clinically important anatomy and physiology that is foundational to the understanding of the most common gastric and reproductive disorders. Further the anatomy and physiology of the Brain-Gut Axis will be discussed from a gastric/reproductive disease centric point of view allowing clinicians a better understating of this very intimate relationship. Examination techniques specific to these areas will be discussed and demonstrated to allow for the development of improved non-pharmaceutical management of these conditions
