As part two of a pair of courses, this course briefly reviews basic concepts and principles related to the function of the human body, and then continues the application of this established conceptual framework set up in the first session of Human Anatomy and Physiology, by providing a comprehensive overview of the integrative mechanisms that contribute to the function of the human body not covered in the first session of the course. The course places emphasis on organization and overview of the human body, chemical reactions, maintenance of the body, integration, regulatory mechanisms and the dynamics of support and motion, as they pertain to topics not covered in the first session of the course. Specific topics covered include a review of A&P fundamentals from A&P I, the endocrine system, the cardiovascular system, the vasculature and respiratory system, the lymphatic and immune systems, the digestive system, the urinary system, fluid and electrolyte balance, and the reproductive system.
