BIO 169 Anatomy and Physiology II

Lecture: 3 Lab: 3 Clinic: 0 Credits: 4
This course provides a continuation of the comprehensive study of the anatomy and physiology of the human body. Topics include the endocrine, cardiovascular, lymphatic, respiratory, digestive, urinary, and reproductive systems as well as metabolism, nutrition, acid-base balance, and fluid and electrolyte balance. Upon completion, students should be able to demonstrate an in-depth understanding of principles of anatomy and physiology and their interrelationships. 

This course has been approved for transfer under the CAA as a premajor and/or elective course requirement.

Pre-requisite(s): BIO 168 .
Course is typically offered in Fall, Spring, and Summer.
Course has transfer restrictions - 10 years

Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs)
At completion of the course, the student should be able to do the following:

  1. Relate the gross and microscopic structures of articulations to their functions.
  2. Relate the gross and microscopic structures of the endocrine system to their functions.
  3. Describe the composition of blood and its functions.
  4. Relate the gross and microscopic structures of the digestive system to their digestive functions.
  5. Relate the gross and microscopic structures of the male and female reproductive systems to their functions.
  6. Relate the chemical properties of water, electrolytes, acids, bases, and macromolecules to cellular metabolism.
  7. Describe homeostatic mechanisms that regulate fluid and electrolyte between intracellular and extracellular compartments.
  8. Relate the gross and microscopic structures of the cardiovascular system to their functions in hemodynamics and nutrient distribution.
  9. Correlate the electrical activity of the heart with heartbeat.
  10. Relate the gross and microscopic structures of the respiratory system to their functions in breathing, gas exchange, and transport.
  11. Relate the gross and microscopic structures of the urinary system to their functions.
  12. Describe nephron structure and its role in filtration, reabsorption, and secretion.
