EHR120 Anatomy & Physiology 2 (8)

Abstract

This subject provides students with an introduction to the anatomical structure and physiological function of the systems of the human body. Emphasis is placed on students developing an understanding of structure (anatomy) and function (physiology) of the cardiovascular, respiratory, lymphatic, endocrine, urinary, digestive and reproductive systems and the integration of all systems in maintaining optimal functioning of the human body. It is compulsory for students studying online to attend a 2 day residential school for this subject.

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion of this subject, students should:
  • be able to describe the structural organisation and the regulartory functions of the endocrine system;
  • be able to describe the anatomical structures and describe the function of the cardiovascular system;
  • be able to outline the anatomy of the lymphatic system and the role this system plays in immune function;
  • be able to outline the structure and function of the respiratory system and explain the mechanics of respiration;
  • be able to describe the anatomy and physiology of the urinary system and role of this system in the maintenance of water, electrolyte and acid-base balance;

Syllabus

The subject will cover the following topics:
  • Endocrine system and role of hormones in communication within the human body;
  • Cardiovascular system and the role of the heart and circulatory system in transportation, protection of the body, and regulation of numerous variables;
  • Respiratory system including the role of the lungs in gas exchange and acid-base balance;
  • The lymphatic system and its role in immunity;
  • Digestive system, the process of nutrient digestion and absorption, metabolism, and temperature regulation;
  • Urinary system and the role of the kidneys in water, electrolyte and acid-base balance;
  • Male and female reproductive system and the role of respective organs in reproduction;
  • Homeostasis and the integration of all systems to maintain an optimal environment within the human body.

Residential School

This subject contains a compulsory 2 day residential school. It is compulosry for Online Study students to attend a two (2) day COMPULSORY Residential School scheduled during the Residential School period.
