Body Systems and Human Performance - BIOS2170

Year - 2020

This unit will present the gross anatomy, functional histology, physiology and pathophysiology of the cardiovascular, respiratory and renal systems (including acid-base homeostasis) relevant to human movement. This unit includes laboratory classes in which human cadaveric material is studied; attendance at such classes is compulsory. It includes classes during which students interpret physiological data and explain the physiological principles associated demonstrated. These classes link across all topics culminating in a capstone activity which emphasizes the integrated nature of human movement and performance.
