Higher Level Students:

And here’s the Click4Biology link

Medmovie.com has a large collection of animations which are great for this unit. We can’t link to them directly, but it’s worth having a look around.

The Cardiac Cycle:

Hyper Heart animation and graphs from the Chinese University of Hong Kong

Biointeractive from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute

Control of the Heart Beat:

A few good links to try from Washburn Rural High School

And don’t forget the Medmovie resource…

Atherosclerosis and Coronary Heart Disease:

Medmovie has good animations for atherosclerosis, heart attacks and heart bypass surgery. There aren’t many that are better…

Production of Tissue Fluid and Lymph:

Hydrostatic and osmotic pressure (fluid exchange) from McGraw Hill

Capillary exchange from coolschool.ca (they have other good resources, too)

Bonus features:

For a good (tricky) prac, here’s a virtual EKG package from skillstat.com

And here’s a decent heart structure tutorial from Gateway Community College

And why not have a go at open heart surgery from abc.net.
