BM1202 HUMAN PHYSIOLOGY 3 0 0 100

AIM
To understand the functioning of the various physiological system.

OBJECTIVES
• To expose students to the structure and functioning of the cell.
• To give the idea of functioning of cardiac, nervous, digestive and respiration system.
• To understand special sensing units responsible for hearing and
vision.

1. CELL 9
Structure of Cell – Function of each Components of the cell – Membrane Potential – Action Potential – Generation and Conduction – Electrical Stimulation.
Blood Cell – Composition – Origin of RBC – Blood Groups – Estimation of RBC, WBC and platelet.

2. CARDIAC AND NERVOUS SYSTEM 10
Cardiac Cycle – ECG – Blood Pressure – Feedback Control for Blood Pressure – Nervous control of Heart. Cardiac output – Coronary and Peripheral Circulation – Structure and function of Nervous tissue – Reflex action – Velocity of Conduction of Nerve Impulses. Electro Encephalograph – Autonomic Nervous System.

3. RESPIRATORY SYSTEM 8
Physiological aspects of respiration. Exchange of gases – Regulation of Respiration. Disturbance of respirating function. Pulmonary function test.

4. DIGESTIVE AND EXCRETORY SYSTEM 9
