Description

This subject, along with 91561 Health and Homeostasis 2, provides the underpinning anatomy and physiology for the subsequent pathophysiology and pharmacology subjects in the Bachelor of Nursing (C10122). The subject provides the foundation knowledge in chemistry and biology forming the basis for the study of human anatomy and physiology. Also, through the guiding principle of homeostasis, this subject describes the contribution of the different organ systems to maintain a state of wellness.

In this subject, the organ systems investigated are the endocrine, nervous, skeletal, muscular, cardiovascular and respiratory systems. The subject provides points of reference with regard to the activity and structure of individual human organs judged to be in a state of good health (e.g. heart rate, lung volume and capacity, and organ architecture).
