Course Information
Description Anatomy and Physiology II is the second part of a two-course sequence. It is a study of the structure and function of the human body including the following systems: endocrine, cardiovascular, immune, lymphatic, respiratory, digestive (including nutrition), urinary (including fluid and electrolyte balance), and reproductive (including human development and genetics). Emphasis is on interrelationships among systems and regulation of physiological functions involved in maintaining homeostasis.
Prerequisites Corequisite(s): BIOL 2102.
Prerequisite(s): BIOL 2301 and BIOL 2101
Learning Outcomes 1. Demonstrate an understanding of blood composition, blood functions, blood disorders, heart anatomy, cardiac conduction system, determinants of cardiac output, and the events of the cardiac cycle. (PSLOs 1, 2, 3) Measured by embedded questions, and/or assignments.

2. Demonstrates an understanding of the structure of the circulatory system, mechanics of blood flow, blood pressure regulation, capillary filtration & exchange, components & functions of the lymphatic system, immune system responses, antibody production, and immune system disorders.
