That’s why anatomical charts and models are so helpful for practicing cardiologists.Anatomical charts and models help bridge the doctor-patient divide, providing illustration of the complex instruments inside our bodies. This presentation will provide an in depth look at the visual charts and models available for use in a cardiologist’s office. 2
  3. 3. Anatomy of the HeartLWW’s heart anatomy chart provides eight full-color illustrations of the human heart, including: Anterior, posterior, and superior views Right and left ventricle illustrations Heart valves, and blood circulation illustration Cross section and anterior views of the heart and lungsChart is 20”x26” and available in laminated and paper versions. 3
  4. 4. Cardiovascular Disease ChartLWW’s cardiovascular disease chart illustrates the cardiac cycle, including the conduction system and the electrocardiogram (ECG). The cardiovascular disease chart also provides views of the anterior and posterior sections as well as cutaway views of the heart, and illustrates the location of the coronary arteries. The chart visually illustrates and provides textual explanations of the following heart diseases: • Coronary heart • Cerebrovascular disease accident (stroke) • Polyarteritis nodosa • Aortic aneurysm (PAN) • Left ventricular • Kawasakis disease hypertrophy • Angina • Congestive heart myocardial infarction failure (heart attack) Chart is 20”x26” and is available in laminated and paper versions. 4
  5. 5. Heart Conditions ChartLWW’s heart conditions anatomical chart provides a large illustration of a healthy heart along side smaller illustrations of hearts afflicted with various conditions, and descriptions of those conditions. These include: Heart murmurs Cardiac arrhythmias Common congenital defects, including patent ductus arteriosus, atrial septal defect, and ventricular septal defect Acquired heart defects, including myocarditis, rheumatic heart disease, cardiomyopathy, and Kawaskis disease High cholesterol, coronary heart disease, and hypertensionPlastic Styrene chart is 19¾”x26”. 5
  6. 6. Classic Heart ModelThe human heart model opens to present the atrium cordis, left and right ventricles and cardiac valves. Sized to ¾ of an adult human heart Two pieces Removable from standModel is 5”x5” and weighs 1.5 lbs. 6
