Human Anatomy & Physiology Cat Version 11th Edition PDF Free Download
The philosophy behind the revision of this manual mirrors that of all earlier editions. It reflects a still developing sensibility for the way teachers teach and students learn, engendered by years of teaching the subject and by listening to the suggestions of other instructors as well as those of students enrolled in multifaceted healthcare programs. Human Anatomy & Physiology Laboratory Manual, Cat Version was originally developed to facilitate and enrich the laboratory experience for both teachers and students. This edition retains those same goals. This manual, intended for students in introductory human anatomy and physiology courses, presents a wide range of laboratory experiences for students concentrating in nursing, physical therapy, dental hygiene, pharmacology, respiratory therapy, and health and physical education, as well as biology and premedical programs. It differs from Human Anatomy & Physiology Laboratory Manual, Main Version in that it contains detailed guidelines for dissecting a laboratory animal. The manual’s coverage is intentionally broad, allowing it to serve both one- and two-semester courses. Basic Approach and Features The generous variety of experiments in this manual provides flexibility that enables instructors to gear their laboratory approach to specific academic programs, or to their own teaching preferences. The manual is still independent of any textbook, so it contains the background discussions and terminology necessary to perform all experiments. Such a self-contained learning aid eliminates the need for students to bring a textbook into the laboratory. Each of the 46 exercises leads students toward a coherent understanding of the structure and function of the human body.
The manual begins with anatomical terminology and an orientation to the body, which together provide the necessary tools for studying the various body systems. The exercises that follow reflect the dual focus of the manual—both anatomical and physiological aspects receive considerable attention. As the various organ systems of the body are introduced, the initial exercises focus on organization, from the cellular to the organ system level. As indicated by the table of contents, the anatomical exercises are usually followed by physiological experiments that familiarize students with various aspects of body functioning and promote the critical understanding that function follows structure. Homeostasis is continually emphasized as a requirement for optimal health. Pathological conditions are viewed as a loss of homeostasis; these discussions can be recognized by the homeostatic imbalance logo within the descriptive material of each exercise. This holistic approach encourages an integrated understanding of the human body. Features • The numerous physiological experiments for each organ system range from simple experiments that can be performed without specialized tools to more complex experiments using laboratory equipment, computers, and instrumentation techniques. • The laboratory Review Sheets following each exercise provide space for recording and interpreting experimental results and require students to label diagrams and answer matching and short-answer questions. • In addition to the figures, isolated animal organs such as the sheep heart and pig kidney are employed to study anatomy because of their exceptional similarity to human organs. • All exercises involving body fluids (blood, urine, saliva) incorporate current Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines for handling human body fluids. Because it is important that nursing students, in particular, learn how to safely handle bloodstained articles, the human focus has been retained. However, the decision to allow testing of human (student) blood or to use animal blood in the laboratory is left to the discretion of the instructor in accordance with institutional guidelines. The CDC guidelines for handling body fluids are reinforced by the laboratory safety procedures described on the inside front cover of this text, in Exercise 29: Blood, and in the Instructor’s Guide. You can photocopy the inside front cover and post it in the lab to help students become well versed in laboratory safety.[/mks_toggle]
