Interruptions to Normal Physiology - NURS1005

Year - 2020

This unit of study will provide students with a contextual link between human physiology and alterations to physiological processes and pathophysiological phenomena experienced by patients in clinical settings. This will involve further exploration of the homeostatic control of body processes and how compensatory mechanisms manifest. The topics of oxygenation, protection, metabolism, neuro-endocrine regulation, and elimination will be explored in the context of disease and disorders associated with these processes. This will extend students' understandings of complex physiological alterations and pathophysiology.
