The Gas Laws
A discussion of the three perfect gas laws.
The Universal Gas Constant
This Vodcast deals with Avogadro's constant, and how it can be related to the universal gas constant and employed in the ideal gas equation.
Critical Temperature & Pressure
This vodcast looks at the effects of temperature and pressure on the behaviour of a gas, related to critical temperature, pressure and isotherms.
Saturated Vapour Pressure
A discussion of what a vapour is, how this related to saturated vapour pressure and the relationship between SVP and temperature
Heat, Temperature and the Latent Heat of Vapourisation
In this vodcast we will look at the difference between heat and temperature, and the application of latent heat to a clinical process.
Pulmonary Artery Catheters
This vodcast discusses the pulmonary artery catheter. Waveforms encountered on "floating" the PAC are discussed, as is the pulmonary artery occlusion pressure.
