BL 112 Overview
This course is a continuation of Anatomy and Physiology I. The basic chemistry, cell physiology and histology discussed in the first semester will be applied to the organs and tissues involved in body control, defense, gas exchange, osmolarity, pH and reproduction. As in the first semester, the maintenance of homeostasis is the primary objective. The subject matter concentrates on normal structure and function; however, some disease states also may be discussed. Laboratory studies using fetal pigs, computer simulations and various live animals may be used to supplement the course material. Students who register for this course also must register for lab BL 112L for the same term. Prerequisite: BL 111, open to students majoring in science, psychology, health and wellness or nursing or departmental approval.
