BSC2086 Anatomy and Physiology II

3 credit hour(s) | Fall | Spring | Summer
Prerequisite(s): grade of C or better in BSC2085 .
Corequisite(s): Recommended BSC2086L .
This course is the second half of an investigation of the structure and functioning of the human body. Topics include the anatomy and physiology of cellular control systems; the special senses; the endocrine, cardiovascular, lymphatic, respiratory and reproductive systems; and fluid/electrolyte and acid/base balance. Lecture will focus on physiology and lab will focus on anatomy. All sections of lecture will have a mandatory comprehensive final exam. It is assumed that students have a mastery of the core physiological principles from BSC2085 , including membrane dynamics and transport, cell signaling, biopotentials, molecular basis of muscle physiology, synaptic transmission and organization of the ANS. This material is not reviewed in BSC2086. Topics are available from the course coordinator. All sections are either Web-assisted or Web-based, so computer skills are required. Designed primarily for nursing, respiratory therapy and other healthcare professions. Lecture: 3 hours. Not intended for biology majors.
