CATALOG DESCRIPTION The second semester of a two-semester course in human anatomy and physiology. Topics include: human embryology, gross anatomy, microanatomy, physiology, pathology, and homeostatic relationships. This course is intended for students entering health care or medically related fields such as nursing, physical therapy, and medical technology. (3 hrs. lect) Activities Required at Scheduled Times Other Than Class Times: None STUDENT LEARNING OUTCOMES Upon successful completion of ZOOL 142, the student should be able to: 1) Describe the anatomy and function of the circulatory, lymphatic, endocrine, digestive, urinary, and reproductive systems and discuss how these systems maintain homeostasis in the human body. 2) Describe the link between the anatomy of human tissues and organs and their functions within the human body. 3) Describe how lipids, carbohydrates, proteins and nucleic acids are digested, assimilated, and catabolized to obtain energy and raw materials. 4) Discuss how negative feedback maintains homeostasis in the human body. 5) Explain how disease and disorders disrupt the homeostasis of each of the above body systems and discuss how common medical treatments and drugs are used to restore homeostasis. 2 COURSE CONTENT Concepts or Topics The student will describe and integrate basic biological principles and define basic biological terms presented in lecture, required texts, and other instructional materials. These principles include the following areas: Anatomy of the endocrine systems and physiology of hormone actions Functions and components of blood Anatomy of the heart and regulation of heart rate and cardiac output Anatomy of blood vessels and regulation of blood pressure and blood flow Mechanisms of general and specific resistance Anatomy and physiology of the respiratory system Digestive anatomy, processes, nutrition, and metabolism Anatomy of the urinary system, renal physiology, and fluid & electrolyte homeostasis Anatomy and physiology of male and female reproductive systems Physiology of pregnancy and fetal development Genetics and inheritance COURSE TASKS 1) Attend class at scheduled times....
