Human Systems Physiology 2Western Sydney University Unit Code: 301270.1


Student Contribution Band: 2

Level: 2

Credit Points: 10

Assumed Knowledge
Concepts in physiology topics such as physical and chemical principles of physiology, homeostasis and Human Systems Physiology 1, a unit which will cover the nervous, endocrine, cardiovascular, muscle and respiratory systems. Human Systems Physiology 2 focuses on visceral organ systems, however, knowledge developed in Human Systems Physiology 1 (particularly regarding how the nervous and endocrine systems regulate organ systems) will help students in their understanding of the content covered in Human Systems Physiology 2.

Incompatible Units
300818 - Introduction to Physiology, 400868 - Human Anatomy & Physiology 2, 300361 - Introduction to Human Biology, 400868 - Human Anatomy & Physiology 1.

301254 Concepts in Human Physiology

About this Unit
Human Systems Physiology 2 builds upon the core concepts and terminology introduced in Concepts in Physiology and Human Systems Physiology 1, focusing on the function of visceral organs and explore how these organ systems are regulated, integrated, and function within the human body. The focus will be on the lymphatic, immune, digestive, renal and reproductive systems. Students will collect, interpret and analyse data to develop an understanding of the physiological responses of the human body.

Special Requirements - Essential Equipment
All students are required to have and wear closed-toed shoes, laboratory coat and safety glasses when working in the Physiology laboratory spaces. Students need to complete and provide evidence of an online WHS induction quiz before entering the first practical class.
