2 Preface Integration of Lecture, Laboratory and Textbook Information Time or the lack thereof is your most formidable enemy as a summer session student. If studying human anatomy and physiology in the summer has any serious drawback, it is that there is rarely enough time to fully integrate the information to which you are exposed on a daily basis. Our principal goal during this summer session will be to assist you in mastering this extensive and challenging body of information. As each of you is a successful “graduate” of PSIO 201, we will not presume to tell you how to study. However, we do strongly advise against your adopting a “cram and regurgitate” approach to PSIO 202. The material covered in PSIO 202 this summer will make sense only if you integrate it with the knowledge you acquired during PSIO 201. While PSIO 201 and 202 are both introductory systems physiology courses, you should understand that each system has its underlying function based in cellular physiology. In PSIO 202 we will examine those systems not covered in PSIO 201 and, more importantly, we will integrate systemic information to understand how humans maintain homeostasis at the level of the organism. We encourage you to understand and employ your most effective learning style (i.e., visual, auditory, kinetic); to actively ask us questions during the lectures and scheduled laboratory sessions; and to engage each course faculty member in individualized discussions. We will assist you in any way that we can but you will have to do the active learning! Carpe Diem

4 L ECTURE 1 C ARDIOVASCULAR S YSTEM : Blood (Tortora, pp. 689-708; 711-713) Learning objectives: 1. Describe the primary function of the cardiovascular system. 2. Discuss the general role of blood in maintaining homeostasis and the functions and physical characteristics of the various components of the blood. 3. List the components of plasma and explain their importance. 4. Describe/compare the functions of formed elements in the blood. 5. Describe the mechanisms that contribute to hemostasis. 6. Identify the key stages involved in blood clotting. ______________________________________________________________________________ The blood, heart, and blood vessels together make up the cardiovascular system. The most important functions of the cardiovascular system are to supply nutrients to the tissues and remove waste products. As an extracellular fluid that is the only liquid connective tissue, blood acts as the carrier of these substances by indirectly interacting with the interstitial fluid surrounding body cells. Blood is normally found only inside blood vessels and the heart; the cardiovascular system is a closed system. I. THE FUNCTIONS AND PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS OF BLOOD
