HUBS192 Human Body Systems 2

An introduction to the structure and function of the human integumentary (skin), cardiovascular, respiratory, gastrointestinal, renal/urinary and reproductive systems.

How does your heart pump and your gut absorb nutrients and how do your kidneys control water balance when you are sleeping, running a marathon at the equator or climbing Mt Everest. This paper will introduce you to the structure (Anatomy) and function (Physiology) of your body systems and begin to explain why the body operates as such an efficient machine under a range of normal conditions.

HUBS 192 will build on the principle of homeostasis developed in HUBS 191 with consideration of five main body systems: skin, cardiovascular, respiratory, gastrointestinal, renal/urinary and reproductive systems.

Paper Structure
Teaching Arrangements

You will attend three lectures each week. Lectures are also video streamed to allow a large number of students to take part in this paper, and we ensure that the lecturer will be in your lecture room regularly. Video-casts of these lectures are placed on Blackboard at 5pm the day of the lecture for student revision. Material to be covered in the lecture is available on the day prior to the lecture to encourage some pre-lecture familiarity and enhance learning in the lecture.

You will attend six 3-hour laboratory sessions on alternate weeks. These sessions are very interactive, with students working in groups in which discussion and problem solving is encouraged.

Textbooks

Required: Martini, Ober, Nath, Bartholomew, Petti (2018). Visual Anatomy and Physiology and Martini’s Atlas of the Human Body. 3rd Edn, Pearson.

Learning Outcomes

Successful completion of this paper will help students

  • To gain a broad understanding and knowledge of the anatomy and physiology of the human body, including fundamental facts and concepts that will form a basis for study in a wide range of Health Science disciplines (e.g. Anatomy, Physiology, Professional Health Science qualifications)
  • To become an active learner by taking part in laboratory class discussions and LMs
  • To develop a sense of the interconnectedness of knowledge about the body and the interdisciplinary nature of all biomedical knowledge
  • To develop an awareness of the scientific basis of knowledge and current research undertaken in the disciplines you study
  • To develop independence of learning that equips the student with life-long learning skills
