BIOL-211 - Human Anatomy & Physiology 2
Anatomy and Physiology 2 provides further study of the structure and function of the human body. The circulatory, lymphatic/immune, respiratory, excretory, digestive, and reproductive systems will be emphasized in this term with an emphasis on structure and function from the microscopic to the macroscopic level of organization. Prerequisite: BIOL-210 with a minimum grade of C or better within the last five years. Three hours lecture and three hours laboratory each week. Four credits. Four billable hours. Offered Spring, Summer and Fall terms.
Academic Level:
Please see course description for all prerequisites.
Course Objectives: 1. Develop a vocabulary of appropriate terminology to effectively communicate information related to the anatomy and physiology of the following body systems: cardiovascular, lymphatic immune, respiratory, digestive, urinary, and reproductive. 2. Identify and describe the microscopic and macroscopic anatomy of the structures involved in the above body systems. 3. Qualitatively and quantitatively describe the normal physiological functions of the structures involved in the above body systems, being sure to integrate basic knowledge of chemistry, mathematics, physics and cellular biology where appropriate. 4. Describe how the different body systems function together to maintain homeostasis. 5. Describe the various tools used in health care and how they are used in the diagnosis and cure of pathological conditions. 6. Demonstrate an understanding of the relationship between anatomy and physiology by using anatomical knowledge to predict physiological consequences, and using knowledge of function to predict the features of anatomical structures. 7. Demonstrate information literacy skills to access, evaluate, and use various scientific resources to approach and examine current health and medical issues from an evidence-based perspective. 8. Use proper and safe laboratory procedures to examine the physiological functions of the cardiovascular, respiratory, and urinary body systems. 9. Use the appropriate quantitative skills to calculate and interpret physiological data.l values (GE3 PG,2)
