The Cardiac Cycle Explained Ridiculously Easy!

Enter your name and email to get FREE access

The cardiac cycle - it's one of those topics that often make students cry. And I understand why. It's usually taught as this VERY complex graph (shown above) and can be overwhelming for even smart students (like you)

I don't like that. In fact - I hate it. That's why I put together this free resource. I want to help you understand it. I want you to feel confident when your professor asks you "complicated" questions. I want you to be able to explain it to him/her in detail - because you understand it thoroughly. In this FREE PDF (and accompanying video), you'll discover:

  • What the cardiac cycle is
  • How the ECG triggers everything else
  • What happens to ventricular volume
  • Atrial and ventricular pressure during the cycle
  • Heart sounds during the cycle

What People are Saying Over on YouTube...

My teacher spent like half an hour trying to explain this and failed miserably, but you sir, were successful in less than half the time. You're the man!!

this professor is a heavenly sent for all medical students.

I've learned more from you in just one video than I have from a human physiology class in a four year university. Thank you soo much! :D

This is one of the best videos on the cardiovascular system out there. Well done

Got an exam on this in a few days and your videos will get me that A. Thank you so much for making these. You are incredible.

You are a great teacher. It is truly an art to be able to teach to others!

Thank you SO MUCH for these videos, I have a particularly inconsistent and confusing teacher for physiology who is unable to organize the material in a way that makes sense and is cohesive. I wish I could have paid you the tuition instead as these videos are how I am really learning. I wish all teachers could teach the way you do. you are amazing! Truly, from the bottom of my heart, thank you! 

Thank you for this!!! I know you've just recently let go of this channel (so bittersweet but I wish you the best!), but I'm still sending you my thanks. Med student here, and I'm quite intimidated by cardiology. Thanks to your amazing video (and really friendly narration), I feel much more reassured :) May more good things come your way!! :)

It was definitely intimidating at the start but it's amazing how it all makes sense at the end of the video. Thank you very much

Thank you SO much! I might actually pass my anatomy and physiology test tomorrow now!

Thank you for making this video! Made the diagram a lot more approachable when broken down into more simple parts. Much appreciated!

I seriously love your videos! Thank you for doing this! You are such a great help to students and anyone who just wants to learn everywhere! 

I want to thank you sooooo much for making this process as easy as possible. You have helped me with several topics and I really appreciate it. I needed help with this section because it is so many sections and it has a lot of details. I have a good understanding now of what is going on after many times of watching. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR HELP!!!
