R W

Anatomy and Physiology II is the second part of a two-course sequence. It is a study of the structure and function of the human body including the following systems: endocrine, cardiovascular, immune, lymphatic, respiratory, digestive (including nutrition), urinary (including fluid and electrolyte balance), and reproductive (including human development and genetics). Emphasis is on interrelationships among systems and regulation of physiological functions involved in maintaining homeostasis. The lab provides a hands-on learning experience for exploration of human system components and basic physiology. Systems to be studied include endocrine, cardiovascular, immune, lymphatic, respiratory, digestive (including nutrition), urinary (including fluid and electrolyte balance), and reproductive (including human development and genetics).

Additional Fees: Lab Fee $24

Measurable Learning Outcomes:
Use anatomical terminology to identify and describe locations of major organs of each system covered. Explain interrelationships among molecular, cellular, tissue, and organ functions in each system. Describe the interdependency and interactions of the systems. Explain contributions of organs and systems to the maintenance of homeostasis. Identify causes and effects of homeostatic imbalances. Describe modern technology and tools used to study anatomy and physiology. Apply appropriate safety and ethical standards. Locate and identify anatomical structures. Appropriately utilize laboratory equipment, such as microscopes, dissection tools, general lab ware, physiology data acquisition systems, and virtual simulations. Work collaboratively to perform experiments. Demonstrate the steps involved in the scientific method. Communicate results of scientific investigations, analyze data and formulate conclusions. Use critical thinking and scientific problem-solving skills, including, but not limited to, inferring, integrating, synthesizing, and summarizing, to make decisions, recommendations, and predictions.
