An understanding of pathophysiology of the human body is essential for all health practitioners. Using a conceptual framework and a case study approach, students will examine systemic physiological processes and associated alterations across the life span. Key concepts covered in this unit will relate to: ventilation/perfusion, pressure, inflammation, immunology, haemostasis, acid-base and fluid imbalance.
On completion of this unit students will demonstrate: knowledge and understanding of the processes underlying common alterations to health, and apply and articulate this knowledge to the analysis of specific body systems; through critical thinking.
On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
1. Define specific pathophysiological concepts;
2. Apply pathophysiological concepts to body systems;
3. Discuss manifestations associated with altered health states across the life span; and
4. Apply the fundamental pathophysiological concepts to diverse clinical situations.
