Module 3: Embryology and Fetal Circulation
Special emphasis on areas of cardiac embryology that lead to certain types of congenital defects.

Module 4: Hemodynamics
After covering normal hemodynamics, Dr. Humes discusses how blood flow and cardiac pressures are impacted by congenital heart disease.

Module 5b: Congenital Shunts, Part II
In Part II we discuss somewhat less common, but important, congenital shunt lesions.
