P&A - Units 1 & 2

  1. 1. Unit 1: Introduction to P&A I. Anatomy & Physiology A. Anatomy - “structure” (morphology) 1.Definition: branch of science that deals with the structure of body parts. B. Physiology – “function” 1.Definition: branch of science that deals with the function of body parts.
  2. 2. C. Structure & function always relate 1.Example: Arteries have very muscular walls to adequately pump blood to all parts of body.
  3. 3. II.Homeostasis A. Defintion: The tendency of the body to maintain a constant internal environment. B. In order to survive, the body needs to remain at homeostasis. C. Homeostasis is regulated by body systems.
  4. 4. 1. Negative Feedback a.Definition: A system which maintains deviations in a normal range. a.Example: Blood pressure- If blood pressure goes up, negative feedback slows heart to return it to normal.

  46. 46. Types of Osmosis 1. Hypertonic – Hyper=more a. More water than needed in the cell, so net water LEAVES cell to reach homeostasis b. cell then SHRINKS 2. Hypotonic – Hypo=less a. Less water than needed in the cell, so water ENTERS cell to reach homeostasis b. cell then SWELLS 3. Isotonic a. Homeostasis is reached
  47. 47. d. Filtration 1. movement of substances across cell membrane due to pressure 2. ex: blood pressure forces water out of capillaries but proteins are left in.
