HyperHeart is an interactive animation/movie developed for Dr. Blumenthal's
pharmacology course detailing bloodflow, aortic/ventricular volumes and
pressures present in a normal cardiac cycle. Also included are an
electrocardiogram and heart sounds graph. Tutorials are provided for each phase
of the cycle and interactive functions such as frame-by frame viewing, high/low
quality toggle for faster playback, and a pop-up-menu to select the phase
tutorials can all be utilized within the animation itself.
Requires the Shockwave Flash plugin.
