This subject builds on material provided in previous physiology subjects (91400 and 91703). It provides the student with an understanding of aspects of medical and applied physiology with an emphasis on the underlying physiological mechanisms and their implications for human health. The subject encourages students to consider the connections between human physiology and health outcomes. The teaching material covers applied and medical physiology of areas such as measurement of brain, cardiac, muscle and respiratory function, temperature regulation, exercise and sleep physiology, the physiology of the urinary and reproductive systems and skin physiology. A lab-based project conducted by students working in groups provides skill development in taking physiological measurements as well as aspects of human ethics, occupational health and safety and dealing with patients. The latter three topics are also part of the lecture series.
