This image shows both an external and internal view of each of the three types of cardiovascular systems I will be discussing: mammals, amphibians/reptiles, and fish. I will address the similarities and differences between the three systems; anatomy of each system, how each one functions, and finally the advantages and disadvantages of each.
I chose to research various cardiovascular systems because I found cardiology to be the most interesting topic in medicine. Prior to moving to Ohio to attend KSU I worked for 2 years at the Naval hospital in Guam. I was assigned to the ICU but I was always drawn to cardiology and whenever I had down time at work I would sneak over to the cardiology and respiratory clinics. Eventually I was transferred to the Internal Medicine department and worked with and aided 6 doctors in the cardiology and respiratory clinics.
