KIN 615 - Cardiorespiratory/Comparative Physiology in Health and DiseaseCredits: 3
This course seeks to fulfill the following objectives: (1) To provide the student with an awareness and mechanistic understanding of the effects of physical activity on humans and animals and the concept of homeostasis. (2) Foster an understanding of the integrative nature of kinesiology/physiology by considering the relationships among different systems and their response to stress in humans and animal species in health and disease. Focus is brought to bear in particular on the pulmonary, cardiovascular and muscle systems. Chronic and acute adaptations to special environments and physical stress are considered and the students are asked to consider how the different systems are controlled in health and disease. This course is recommended for pre-med students, biology and physiology majors, aspiring scientists in physiology and/or medicine and those interested in a career in health and human services.
