The flashcards below were created by user bcb2127 on FreezingBlue Flashcards.

  1. Ischemia, injury and infarction shown via electrical conduction: (Objective 11)

    • Ischemic Zone
    • Injury Zone
    • Infarcted Zone
  2. (Objective 11-12) This stuff seems completely ridiculous, and we didn't really talk about it. Reading ECG.

    • injury
    • infarct
  3. Objective 13- look at pharmacology tool kit b.s. for CV drugs. They most likely suck, but I'm avoiding it.
  4. (objective 14) we didn't talk about this one nor did we get quized over it so I would say read it. it is a lot about stuff we will never do because we aren't medical doctors and I'm not really willing to memorize any of it.
    i'll just miss those points.
  5. (Objective 15) ______ ______: widening, bulge, or ballooning out of a portion of the aorta, usually a weak spot in the aortic wall, causing the vessel to progressively expand to at least 1.5 times beyond its normal diameter of one inch.
