Objectives: A survey of the structure and function of the circulatory, respiratory, digestive, and excretory systems,
within the framework of biological homeostasis. Designed for health science majors. A section of this course is typically
offered in each of the fall and spring semesters.

Prerequisites: None

Credit Value: 3

Contact Time: Two 50 minute lectures and one 3 hour laboratory per week. Students are expected to attend every
lecture; failure to attend lecture regularly will inevitably impact negatively on a student's grade. Laboratory exercises will
be almost exclusively demonstrative, and include dissection and microscopy.

Outcomes: Upon completion of this course the student should have an understanding of the:

       theme of cellular homeostasis
       basic functioning of the organ-systems as they contribute to cellular homeostasis
       interaction of the organ-systems as they function in the whole human organism

Assessment: Three lecture exams and two laboratory practicals will be administered. Exams normally cover material
presented in lecture, along with assigned readings from the text. The third lecture exam, the final, is cumulative.
Laboratory quizzes will be given in the first half hour of each laboratory, and will cover topics for that day in lab.

       NOTE: Assessment format may vary among instructors.

Lecture Schedule:

       Homeostasis and control
       Cell structure, function, and chemistry
       Circulatory system: coronary anatomy and physiology, blood vessels, blood composition, and regulation
       Cardiac output, blood flow, and blood pressure: regulation, capillary exchange, lymph formation
       Lymphatic system and immunity: humoral and cell mediated responses, clonal selection
       Respiratory system: anatomy and physiology, regulation, and gas exchange
       Digestive system: anatomy and physiology, absorption, regulation
       Metabolism and its regulation: Islets of Langerhans, adrenal hormones, thyroid and pituitary actions, Ca and P
        balance
       Urinary system: fluid and electrolyte balance anatomy and physiology, filtration-reabsorption-secretion,
        electrolyte/acid-base regulations

       NOTE: Lecture sequence may vary among instructors.

Laboratory Schedule:

       Tissues I: epithelial tissues
       Non-epithelial tissues
       Integument/external anatomy/mitosis
       Diffusion, osmosis, tonicity
       Circulation I: venous system
       Circulation II: arterial system
       Heart structure and function
       Laboratory practical I
       Respiratory system: anatomy, histology, function
       Digestive system: anatomy and histology
       Enzyme kinetics
       Urinary system: structure and function
   Review
   Laboratory practical II
   NOTE: Laboratory sequence may vary among instructors
