Eastwick College | Evaluated Learning Experience
Anatomy and Physiology II (DE) (BIO201)
72 hours and an additional 24 hours laboratory (12 weeks).
August 2019 - Present.
Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to: explain the fundamental anatomical and physiological concepts related to the body system covered such as the digestive tract, the urinary system and the nervous system; distinguish between the different types of physiological and anatomical functions that are carried out by each body system; such as cardiac blood flow, digestive processes and hormone actions, the depolarization/repolarization of the neurons, filtration at the level of the nephron, and the process of the menstrual cycle in the female reproductive system; describe the basic structures of the organs which make up the systems covered in the unit; such as the GI tract, kidney, heart, pituitary gland and reproductive organs; outline how specific enzymes, hormones, and neurotransmitters influence the body to maintain homeostasis; list the various tests and studies that are utilized to evaluate relevant body systems; such as urinalysis to diagnose urinary tract infections, MRI to view the central nervous system, or cardiac EKG to evaluate arrhythmias; and use scientific analysis to complete laboratory experiments and quantify the results at the conclusion of the experiments.
This course is an introduction to the basic principles of human anatomy and physiology that emphasizes some common diseases in relation to the various body systems. The topics include an understanding of digestive, urinary, cardiovascular, nervous, endocrine, and reproductive systems. Outside preparation activities include completion of written chapter assignments and online activities using Connect™. Prerequisite: Anatomy and Physiology I (BIO101).
In the lower division baccalaureate/associate degree category, 4 semester hours in Anatomy and Physiology II (distributed as 3 semester hours didactic and 1 semester hour clinical lab) (5/22).
