Human Anatomy and Physiology II


Credits: 5
Clock Hours per Quarter: 60

AA Discipline: [Natural Sciences]

Lecture Hours:40    Lab Hours:20


Description
This course is the second of a three quarter sequence which studies the structure and function of the human body. This course is intended for Nursing and Allied Health majors in fulfillment of the pre-nursing (or health care related)program lab science requirements; however, it may be used in order to fulfill general education lab science requirements. Topics include an examination of the following systems: endocrine, cardiovascular, respiratory, digestive, and urinary. Laboratory work may include mammalian dissections, study of models, and microscopy. Formerly BIO 211, Anatomy & Physiology II. Prerequisite: Grade of C or higher in BIOL& 251. Concurrent enrollment in BIOL& 253 allowed with instructor permission.

Intended Learning Outcomes
  • Apply major terms, vocabulary, methods and concepts relevant to anatomy and physiology.
  • Use anatomical and physiological vocabulary in oral and written communication.
  • Identify the components of the major organ systems and describe their location in anatomical terms.
  • Analyze the normal anatomy, functions, and mechanisms of the endocrine, cardiovascular, respiratory, digestive, and urinary systems and predict the effects of disease in those systems.
  • Apply concepts and knowledge of terminology, structure and function related to each organ system.
  • Analyze physiological measurements of organ systems to determine if they are within a “healthy” range or indicate an abnormality.
  • Explain how the body systems function to maintain homeostasis and how imbalances of these systems lead to disease.
  • Analyze fluids and tissues.
  • Use discipline-specific laboratory materials, such as dissection tools, models, and compound microscopes, to analyze the structure of tissues and preserved specimens.
