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. Lectures 1-2: Introduction to Pathophysiology (2) Lectures 3-4: Mechanisms of Self-Defense and Stress (2) Lectures 5-8: Endocrine and Nervous System Dysfunctions (4) Lecture 9: Alterations of Skeletal Muscle Function (1) REVIEW AND TEST #1 Lectures 12-18: Cardiovascular, Respiratory and Renal Dysfunctions (7) REVIEW AND TEST #2 Lectures 21-24: Alterations of Digestive Function and Intermediary Metabolism (4) Lectures 25-26: Alterations of the Reproductive System (2) REVIEW AND TEST #3 Defense mechanisms LINES OF DEFENSE MECHANISM: There are 2 types, innate resistance (barriers, inflammation) and the adaptive (acquired) immune system. Physical /mechanical barriers prevent damage to individual and pathogen invasion. Include skin & mucous membranes. Antibacterial peptides in mucous secretions, perspiration, saliva, tears, and other secretions are biochemical barriers. Inflammation, a rapid /non-specific response in vascularized tissues, has as its macroscopic hallmarks redness, swelling, heat, pain, and loss of function of the site. Its microscopic hallmark is accumulation of fluid and cells at the site. Adaptive immunity is a line of defense that is slower to start than innate resistance but it is specific and has a memory that makes it have a long life. It is acquired after birth, is me- diated by T and B-lymphocytes, and is initiated by innate defense signals. Adaptive immunity is active or passive de- pen-ding on its immune components origin, host or donor.
