Description

Course Description
This course involves the investigation of the heart and vasculature and the fluid dynamics of the blood. Additionally the course explores the interface between the heart, the primary respiratory mechanism and the autonomic nervous system. Study of the cardiovascular system leads to the consideration of the heart as more than a pump. This course will explore the concept of the heart as a hydrodynamic and electromagnetic generator, qualities which are then imparted to the blood. The role of the heart in the integration of mind, body and spirit is also considered.

Credit Designation
NOTE:  As of April 6, 2021, CME approval is still pending from AOA. This course has not yet been approved for CME  as of April 6, 2021.

Course Objectives
Andrew Taylor Still, MD, DO, the founder of Osteopathy, made the pronouncement, “The rule of the artery is universal.” His student, William Garner Sutherland, DO said, “The rule of the artery is supreme; the CSF is in command.” This course, developed by osteopaths in Australia and New Zealand, seeks to teach these principles and the requisite skills for Osteopaths to evince these truths using osteopathic palpatory diagnosis and treatment. The student of this course will learn:
1. How to palpate the flow of blood in the heart and arteries.
2. The quality of spiral flow and turbulent flow.
3. The embryology and anatomy of the cardiovascular system.
4. The routes of venous return and the quality of that palpated blood flow.
5. The anatomy of the lymphatics and palpating that flow.
6. The anatomy of the heart, lungs and mediastinum.
7. How the heart is a generator, the brain a battery, and the autonomic nervous
system the intermediary.

Target Audience
This course is for osteopathic and medical physicians only (DO/MD).

Prerequisites
Must show proof of satisfactory completion of an ROA1 course in a previous year. Email proof to cme@the-promise.org. The ROA faculty requests a commitment from those taking ROA 2 for the first time to take the course in-person when that is feasible.

He has extensive additional training through post-graduate courses taken in Europe, Australia, and the US. He has been involved in osteopathic teaching throughout his career and in Australia he has been instrumental in the development of several teaching programs and helped found two teaching foundations. In 2012 Dr. Fraval established the Australian Research College of Osteopathic Medicine, Ltd. This is a non-profit public company with the mission of promoting and carrying out educational and research activities. Mr. Fraval has several published papers in osteopathic journals and has contributed chapters for two osteopathic textbooks. Dr. Fraval is a leading scholar in osteopathic manipulative medicine in general and osteopathy in the cranial field in particular. He, along with his colleagues in Australia and New Zealand, has developed a unique and innovative understanding in his application of osteopathy. He will be sharing this osteopathic knowledge and skills with US physicians who will benefit by being able to incorporate these approaches into their own clinical practices for the benefit of their patients. In addition, many of the US physicians attending the course are themselves teachers in post-graduate education and several of them are faculty at various US colleges of osteopathic medicine. And so there will be significant opportunities for exchange between Dr. Fraval and US faculty from around the country. Another task for Dr. Fraval is to begin to develop a select group of physicians here in the US that can become specialized in this approach and continue a high level of teaching in this subject.
