ZOO 2025 Human Physiology

Each human organ system will be studied in terms of its functional anatomy and physiology. Integration and control of physiological processes will be emphasized to give students a practical working knowledge of such processes as digestion, nervous transmission, cardiac and circulatory function, respiration, muscle con- traction, reproduction, and excretion. The laboratories will include experiments utilizing the most modern computer data acquisition equipment to acquire and analyze electrocardiograms, respiratory function tests, and muscle physiology. Techniques will be learned for determining blood pressure, blood count, complete blood count parameters, urinalysis, vision, hearing body composition, and cardiovascular fitness. The chemistry of digestion will be studied in the laboratory. It is recommended, but not required, that students successfully complete ZOO 2015 before taking ZOO 2025. Prerequisite: Completion of BIOL 1010, ENGL 1010, and test into MATH 1000 or higher. (3 lect., 3 lab)
