Cardiovascular Images

Mrs. Maeder’s seventh grade science students learned about the cardiovascular system from a professional recently when Dr. Bob Gibson visited the class. Dr. Gibson connected a monitor to a willing volunteer and students were able to “see” electrical impulses created by the body. The students also examined EKG printouts which showed normal heart rhythms as well as those when a heart is in distress. Dr. Gibson also explained the procedures used to treat patients experiencing a heart attack or problems with their cardiovascular system.
