You probably have a general understanding of how your body works. But do you fully comprehend how all of the intricate functions and systems of the human body work together to keep you healthy? This course will provide that insight. By approaching the study of the body in an organized way, you will be able to connect what you learn about anatomy and physiology to what you already know about your own body.

By taking this course, you will begin to think and speak in the language of the domain while integrating the knowledge you gain about anatomy to support explanations of physiological phenomenon. The course focuses on a few themes that, when taken together, provide a full view of what the human body is capable of and of the exciting processes going on inside of it.

Topics covered include: Structure and Function, Homeostasis, Levels of Organization, and Integration of Systems.

Anatomy and Physiology is a dynamic textbook for the two-semester human anatomy and physiology course for life science and allied health majors. The book is organized by body system and covers standard scope and sequence requirements. Its lucid text, strategically constructed art, career features, and links to external learning tools address the critical teaching and learning challenges in the course. The web-based version of Anatomy and Physiology also features links to surgical videos, histology, and interactive diagrams.

In the Body System Amusement Parks project, students team up to create amusement parks based on the various systems and organs within the human body. With the power of abstraction, each attraction represents the cardiovascular system, the muscular system, the digestive system, etc. Teams create both 3D scale models and presentations to an unnamed wealthy investment firm looking to build a new park in the students’ very own town. This activity was heavily inspired by a post from Danielle Dace.

The Cardiovascular System : Composition of Blood (13:02)
Rating

We take a look at the basic composition of blood. Blood is composed of liquids and solids. The solids are called the formed elements while the liquid portion is called plasma. The solids of the blood consists of red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets . The plasma is mostly water, but it does contain some plasma proteins, dissolved gases, nutrients and electrolytes.

The Cardiovascular System : Hematopoiesis - Making Blood (13:03)
Rating

In this video take a look at hematopoiesis (haematopoiesis), or the creation of blood. While we are still embryos the formation of blood can occur in multiple sites. After birth production primary takes place in red bone marrow.

All blood cells that are circulating derive from pluripotential hematopoietic cells also known as hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs). These stem cells can form any of the blood cells or other stem cells. Hematopoietic Growth Factor will help determine what the stem cell grows into.

There are three families that blood cells can grow up to become: 1) Erythroid cells, 2) Lymphocytes, and 3) Myelocytes.

The Cardiovascular System : Red Blood Cells (13:04)
Rating

Red Blood Cells also known as red blood cells (RBCs) or erythrocytes are around 7.5μm in diameter. The average number (red blood cell count) is typically:
*5,200,000 per cubic millimeter ± 300,000 men
*4,700,000 per cubic millimeter ± 300,000 women

Red blood cells are made of hemoglobin. When the hemoglobin combines with oxygen it is called oxyhemoglobin, when oxygen has been released it is known as deoxyhemoglobin. The RBC initially have a nuclei during the early stages of development, they then remove the nuclei to help make room for hemoglobin.

Floppy Heart Valves
Conditions of Use:
Read the Fine Print
Rating

Students are presented with an engineering challenge that asks them to develop a material and model that can be used to test the properties of aortic valves without using real specimens. Developing material that is similar to human heart valves makes testing easier for biomedical engineers because they can test new devices or ideas on the model valve instead of real heart valves, which can be difficult to obtain for research. To meet the challenge, students are presented with a variety of background information, are asked to research the topic to learn more specific information pertaining to the challenge, and design and build a (prototype) product. After students test their products and make modifications as needed, they convey background and product information in the form of portfolios and presentations to the potential buyer.
