Credits: 5
Clock Hours per Quarter: 50

AA Discipline:

Lecture Hours:50


Description
Integration of basic structure and functions of the human body with disease processes that can affect body systems. This is the first of two human structure and function classes and includes an introduction to cellular function, as well as the anatomy and physiology of the integumentary, skeletal, muscular, neurologic, sensory, and digestive systems. Included are common diagnostic tests, treatments and possible prognoses for common disease processes that can affect each system. Prerequisite: Instructor permission.

Intended Learning Outcomes
  • Demonstrate ability to identify the structure and function of each component of a typical cell.
  • Discuss and identify the life functions of the integumentary, skeletal, muscular, neurologic, sensory, and digestive systems.
  • Discuss common disease processes, diagnostic procedures, therapeutic modalities, and prognosis for each of the body systems covered in the class.

  • Course Topics
  • Identification and use of terminology referring to planes, location, direction and sections of the human body
  • Structure, function and components of a typical cell, and relation of the function of a cell to larger body systems
  • Integumentary system structure, function, and common pathology, treatment, and prognosis
  • Skeletal system structure, function, and common pathology, treatment, and prognosis
  • Muscular system structure, function, and common pathology, treatment, and prognosis
  • Central nervous system structure, function, and common pathology, treatment, and prognosis
  • Peripheral nervous system structure, function, and common pathology, treatment, and prognosis
  • Location and function of sensory receptors, and ear, eye, and nose disorders and treatment
  • Digestive system structure, function, and common pathology, treatment, and prognosis Functions of types of nutrition
