BIOL 2032 - Human Anatomy and Physiology II

Credits: 4
Hours/Week: Lecture 3Lab 2
Course Description: This is the second of a two-semester lab science course. Human anatomy and physiology are studied using a body systems approach, with emphasis on the interrelationships between form and function at the gross and microscopic levels of organization. Homeostasis is an integrating theme throughout this course. Subjects considered include the cardiovascular system, lymphatic system and immunity, respiratory system, digestive system and metabolism, urinary system, fluid/electrolyte and acid/base balance, and reproductive systems. This course is intended for anyone interested in gaining a better understanding human anatomy and body functions.

Learning Outcomes
At the end of this course students will be able to:

  1. Identify and describe the major gross and microscopic anatomical components of the cardiovascular system and their functional roles in transport and hemodynamics.
  2. Identify and describe the major gross and microscopic anatomical components of the lymphatic system and their functional roles in fluid dynamics and immunity.
  3. Identify and describe the major gross and microscopic anatomical components of the respiratory system and their functional roles in breathing/ventilation and in the processes of external and internal respiration.
  4. Identify and describe the major gross and microscopic anatomical components of the digestive system and their functional roles in digestion, absorption, nutrition, metabolism, excretion and elimination.
  5. Identify and describe the major gross and microscopic anatomical components of the urinary system and their functional roles.
  6. Identify and describe the physiology of the homeostatic mechanisms that control fluid electrolyte and acid base balance.
  7. Identify and describe the major gross and microscopic anatomical components of the male and female reproductive systems and their functional roles in reproduction and inheritance.
