Stage 1 Desired Results


  • The learner will recognize concepts of cardiopulmonary a & p, understand ventilation/perfusion relationships, and principles of gas transport
  • The learner will apply the concepts of understanding to the clinical setting.
  • The learner will be given case studies to develop critical thinking skills in care of cardiopulmonary patients


Students will be able to independently use their learning to move on to the Cardiopulmonary Disease and apply the concepts of A&P.



  • Concepts of cardiopulmonary a & p
  • Neurological control of breathing
  • Ventilation/perfusion concepts
  • Principles of gas transport
  • How to apply that to disease management and the clinical setting?


  • How will you apply the concepts of cardiopulmonary a & p into the respiratory program?
  • How will knowing the correct nervous system allow for me to know what is wrong with my patient?
  • If I know the correct ventilation or perfusion relationship that is occurring in my patient, will I know how to treat them?
  • Will the learner be able to properly move on to their Disease course without having the proper knowledge of these A&P concepts?


Students will know…        

  • Vocabulary related to cardiopulmonary a & p.
  • How to recognize concepts of cardiopulmonary a & p.
  • Understand ventilation/perfusion relationships and principles of gas exchange.
  • Apply key concepts to the clinical setting.

Students will be skilled at…        

  • Recognizing different parts of the cardiopulmonary system.
  • Explain how ventilation works in the lungs.
  • Explain how oxygen moves through the body.
  • Apply critical thinking skills through case studies related to anatomy and physiology.

Stage 2 - Evidence

Assessment Evidence


  • Learners will use Anatomage tables to examine different structures of the heart and lungs and how they function.
  • Create vlogs or blogs on their e-portfolios to reflect on their case studies or coursework.
  • Case Studies assigned outside of class then discussed and analyzed during class time.
  • Locate and identify an assortment of YouTube resources that convey the importance of knowing the anatomy and physiology to properly know how to ventilate and treat your patient.


  • Multiple Choice Exams
  • Anatomage Lab Practical.
  • Apply reflection to e-portfolios.
