Learning outcomes of the course
Student has a basic idea about the structure and function of the maintenance and control systems of the human body.
Structural basics of human body and physiological mechanisms of organ systems from the following contents:
cell and tissue, cell structure, tissue and organs construction.
- musculoskeletal system; major bone and muscle tissue, large bones in the body and various joints, superficial muscles of the body and their effect on the functioning of different joints.
- blood and bloodstream, blood components (cells, plasma) and the functions of the circulatory system. Main features of the body's white blood cell defenses and the bleeding bleeding process. Core structures (including Latin) and heart rotation. Major differences in venous and arteries, as well as the largest blood vessels in the body and the importance of the suction system for the functioning of the body. Anatomic physiological basics for measuring ecg and blood pressure.
- breathing; (upper and lower respiratory tract, lung and pulmonary vesicles, thoracic cavity) and the various stages of the respiratory process (lung ventilation, gas exchange in the lungs and tissues). Basics of breathing regulation and respiratory volume.
- digestion, gastrointestinal tract and digestive fluids and enzymes producing glands. The digestion and absorption of nutrients, how they are stored in the body or how they are removed from the body.
