Slides are good to review the course material after you have study your course textbook Slides are a good indicator of the relative importance of lecture topics (see slide # per topic) Group slides by titles when using them to review course material. Match lectures and text. Introduction to Pathophysiology What is a disease life, death, suspended life, cell as a patient, terms and definitions, cell adaptations Cell injury and its types cell injury, intracellular accumulations Cell injury & its systemic manifestations systemic manifestations, cell death Physiology is best learned in a systematic approach, by understanding cellular and macroscopic body processes. Rather than memorizing individual relationships, student should strive to learn the underlying rationale, such as: The cell membrane allows passage of some molecules and not others based on lipid solubility, size of molecules, concentration gradient, and electrical charge. Since cell membranes are formed by lipid bilayers, lipo- soluble molecules pass through more easily. Smaller molecules and those without an electrical charge also transfer more easily. Finally, the concentration gradient drives the molecular transport, with larger gradient providing a greater force. The use of punch lines in an active learning mode is the best way to learn physiology and pathophysiology. Page 2 Introduction to Pathophysiology What is a disease life, death, suspended life, cell as a patient, terms and definitions, cell adaptations Cell injury and its types cell injury, intracellular accumulations Cell injury & its systemic manifestations systemic manifestations, cell death A rationale understanding of disease and plan for treatment are best acquired by learning about the normal physiological process on a basic science level; similarly being aware of how disease alters normal physiological process is best understood on a scientific level....
