This course offers an in-depth understanding of fetal heart development and the intricacies of fetal heart rate (FHR) regulation like arrhythmias. We start by exploring the development of the sinus node and its role as a primary cardiac pacemaker, driving the heart’s rhythmic contractions from as early as 5 weeks of gestation. Students will learn about the physiological mechanisms controlling the heart rate, including the sinoatrial (SA) node’s function, the propagation of electrical impulses across the heart, and the interplay of systole and diastole in cardiac cycles.
