BMED11-110: Human Organ Systems 1

Description

This subject provides a detailed understanding of the anatomy and physiology of the cardiovascular, respiratory and urinary systems of the body, with emphasis on the relationship between structure and function. Anatomy of the heart and great vessels, lungs, thorax, kidneys and urinary tract is detailed and integrated with the function of these organ systems. Topics include the cardiac cycle, physiology of the circulation, mechanics of breathing, gas exchange and transport, and renal physiology. The regulation of the systems and how they interact to maintain fluid, acid-base and circulatory homeostasis is examined.

Learning outcomes

1. Identify and distinguish the major structures of the organs that comprise the cardiovascular, respiratory and urinary systems, and their related musculoskeletal tissues
2. Describe the general physiological mechanisms and processes underlying the function of these organ system in healthy humans
3. Relate the microscopic and gross structural features of these organs to their function
4. Compare the role played by the autonomic nervous system and endocrine system in regulating functions of the heart, circulation, pulmonary and renal organs
5. Discuss the mechanisms by which these systems are integrated to regulate acid-base and fluid balance
6. Use standard equipment to record and interpret basic measures of cardiovascular and respiratory function including ECG, blood pressure and spirometry
7. Present scientific information using the correct style and format
