Eastwick College | Evaluated Learning Experience
Anatomy and Physiology I (DE) (BIO101)
72 hours and an additional 24 hours lab.
August 2019 - Present.
Upon successful completion of the course students will be able to: explain the fundamental anatomical and physiological concepts related to cells, tissues, membranes, the musculoskeletal system, blood and lymph, and the respiratory system; distinguish between the different types of cell transport (osmosis, diffusion and active transport) and different types of solutions, such as hypertonic, hypotonic and isotonic concentrations; explain the fundamental biological and physiological concepts that relate to the structure and function of the various body systems covered, such as the structure and function of the skeletal muscles, the types of blood cells and the organs that correlate to the respiratory system; list various tests and studies that are utilized to evaluate relevant body systems, such as x-rays to evaluate the skeleton and identify fractures, skin biopsy to evaluate skin lesions, or pulmonary function tests used to diagnose various respiratory diseases; discuss the common diseases associated with each system, including the prognosis and treatments that are associated with deviations from normal structure and function; and use scientific analysis to complete laboratory experiments and quantify the results at the conclusion of the experiments.
Major topics include: an introduction to the basic principles of human anatomy and physiology that emphasizes some common diseases in relation to the various body systems. Oher topics include an understanding of cells, tissues, integumentary, skeletal, muscular, blood, lymphatic, and respiratory systems. Outside preparation activities include completion of written chapter assignments and online activities using Connect ™.
In the lower division baccalaureate/associate degree category, 4 semester hours in Anatomy and Physiology I (distributed as 3 semester hours didactic and 1 semester hour clinical lab) (5/22).
