Course Description:

This is the second semester of a two-semester course that examines the structure and functions of the human body emphasizing and building upon the concepts learned in Human Anatomy & Physiology I. Topics will include special senses, endocrine system, blood, cardiovascular system, respiratory system, digestive system, urinary system and reproductive system. The course includes a lab. Prerequisite: Human Anatomy & Physiology I.

Essential Objectives:

1. Examine and explain the function of the special senses, including taste, hearing, equilibrium and sight.
2. Describe the gross and microscopic anatomy of the major endocrine glands and discuss their associated hormones, and the mechanisms involved in their regulation.
3. Discuss the composition of blood and the role of each of its components and be able to explain the fundamentals of immunity.
4. Describe the gross and microscopic anatomy and the physiology of the regulation of the cardiovascular system.
5. Identify the gross and microscopic anatomical components of the respiratory system and be able to describe the physiology of the regulatory mechanisms of this system.
6. Describe the gross and microscopic anatomy of the digestive system and understand nutrient digestion and absorption of food components.
7. Understand and explain the gross and microscopic anatomical components of the urinary system, including its role in fluid and electrolyte balance.
8. Identify the gross and microscopic anatomical components of the reproductive system, reproductive hormones and their effects on reproductive function as well as on general body structure and metabolism.
9. Demonstrate proficiency in understanding, interpreting, evaluating and applying quantitative data and information.
Lab Objectives:
1. Apply knowledge of the scientific method to construct hypotheses, predictions, and lab reports and to design, analyze, and/or critique experiments found throughout peer-reviewed research and laboratory notebooks.
2. Complete labs in the following areas: function of the senses, endocrine system, blood, cardiovascular system (including the heart and blood vessels), lymphatic system and immune function, respiratory system, digestive system, renal physiology, reproductive system, and fluid and electrolyte balance.
3. Utilize mathematical techniques necessary to properly collect and interpret data (i.e., unit conversions, standardization, and scaling necessary for data collection, graphing and charting).
4. Apply proper techniques in using common scientific tools to collect data and describe how they work (i.e., microscopes, spectrophotometers, UV sterilizers, etc.).
5. Identify and demonstrate lab safety techniques that are in line with CCV’s Chemical Hygiene Plan, Lab Safety Agreements, and chemical Safety Data Sheets (SDS).

Textbooks:

Summer 2019 textbook data will be available on April 8. On that date a link will be available below that will take you to eCampus, CCV's bookstore. The information provided there will be for this course only. Please see this page for more information regarding the purchase of textbooks.

The last day to use a Financial Aid advance to purchase textbooks is the 3rd Tuesday of the semester. See your financial aid counselor at your academic center if you have any questions.

Please note: In order to receive accommodations for disabilities in this course, students must make an appointment to see the Americans with Disabilities Coordinator in their site and bring documentation with them.

Academic Honesty: CCV has a commitment to honesty and excellence in academic work and expects the same from all students. Academic dishonesty, or cheating, can occur whenever you present -as your own work- something that you did not do. You can also be guilty of cheating if you help someone else cheat. Being unaware of what constitutes academic dishonesty (such as knowing what plagiarism is) does not absolve a student of the responsibility to be honest in his/her academic work. Academic dishonesty is taken very seriously and may lead to dismissal from the College.
