BI 233 - Human Anatomy and Physiology 3
Topics include respiratory, digestive, urinary, endocrine, and reproductive systems. Also included are concepts of genetics, inheritance patterns and disorders. Common clinical applications associated with the topics above are presented. May be offered online. Lab included.
Prerequisite: Grade of ‘C-’ or better in BI 232
Upon successful completion of this course, the student should be able to:
1. Develop a vocabulary of appropriate terminology to effectively communicate information related to anatomy and physiology.
2. Recognize the anatomical structures and explain the physiological functions of the respiratory, digestive, urinary, endocrine and reproductive system as well issues related to fluid- electrolyte and acid-base balance and heredity.
3. Recognize, explain and apply the principle of homeostasis and the use of feedback loops to control physiological systems in the human body.
4. Utilize anatomical knowledge to predict physiological consequences, and apply knowledge of function to predict the features of anatomical structures.
5. Demonstrate laboratory procedures used to examine anatomical structures and evaluate physiological functions of the organ system covered including respiratory, digestive, urinary, endocrine and reproductive system as well issues related to fluid- electrolyte and acid-base balance and heredity.
6. Utilize microscopes and/or other appropriate technology to identify structures and histology of the organ systems studied in BI233.
7. Interpret anatomical and physiological data and graphs regarding pulmonary, renal, gastrointestinal and endocrine function as well data related to fluid- electrolyte and acid-base balance. Conduct and interpret pulmonary flow recordings and urinalysis.
8. Recognize and explain the interrelationships within and between anatomical and physiological systems of the human body.
9. Approach and examine issues related to the respiratory, digestive, urinary, endocrine and reproductive system as well issues related to fluid- electrolyte and acid-balance and heredity from an evidence-based perspective.
10. Synthesize ideas to deduce associations between knowledge of cell biology, chemistry and anatomy and physiology and real world situations, including healthy lifestyle decisions, homeostatic imbalances and clinical applications.
