I am working as physiotherapist in Shalby hospital ahmedabad for 4 years. I have passed out from Rajiv gandhi university of health and sciences Bangalore. I want to apply for Newzealand physiotherapy board registration so anyone there from India who got registered as physiotherapist in new zealand please help me.

My revision on basic anatomy and physiology in cardio for PT

Coronary arteries:
  1. Left coronary artery- supplies left atrium, majority of left ventricle, part of right ventricle, majority of interventricular septum, AV bundle, half of the SA node. Bifuricates into left anterior descending artery and left circumflex artery.
  2. Right coronary artery- supplies to right atrium, majority of right ventricle, part of the left ventricle and interventricular septum, majority of AV node and Bundle of his and 60% of SA node. Branches into Right marginal artery, Atrioventricular nodal artery and continues as Posterior interventricular artery.
Conduction system:
  1. SinoAtrial node- Primary pacemaker, located in the right atrium near superior venacava
  2. AtrioVentricular node- secondary pacemaker located near the tricuspid valve on the inferior part of right atrial wall.
  3. Bundle of his- starts at the AV node and continues into the interventricular septum and splits into left and right branches which goes into right and left ventricles.
  4. Purkinje fibers- smaller branches of the Bundle of his which relays the impulses to the cardiac muscles.
Heart sounds:
  1. S1- due to closure of bicuspid and tricuspid valves at the onset of systole, 'lub' sound
  2. S2- due to closure of aortic and pulmonary valves at the onset of diastole, 'dub' sound
  3. S3- immediately follows S2 due to the flow of blood ( shows irregularities if found after middle age)
  4. S4- immediately before S1 & S2, due to turbulent blood flow.
