|Student Contribution Band:
||School of Veterinary & Biomedical Sciences (pre 2015)
The pathophysiology of the human organ systems and the rationales behind therapeutic
intervention. The organ systems studied include the cardiovascular, respiratory, gastrointestinal,
genitourinary and endocrine systems.
- how drug treatments may be used to correct these biochemical and functional imbalances,
helping to restore normal function;
- how the normal functioning of the human organ systems may become transformed in the
disease state, e.g. airway hypersensitivity in asthma;
- the aims in developing highly specific and selective drug treatments and the problems
associated with drug side effects;
- the biochemical and functional imbalances which lead to pathophysiological changes
in organ function;
- understand the main terms used in systemic pathology and to be able to identify the
major histopathological changes in diseased organs.
