Course Content (Syllabus)
It involves the application of the knowledge of physiological properties to restore stability. It delineates the mechanisms and studies how certain factors may alter system functioning by monitoring interactions. It also studies the effect of several environmental factors on human body. Applied Physiology is a broader field than Clinical Physiology or pathophysiology, which only deal with disease states. There is certainly an overlap with these two fields of Physiology. The topics analyzed include respiratory adaptation to altitude, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, mechanisms and types of respiratory insufficiency- hypertension, heart failure, mechanisms of anemia, disorders of sweat glands, perinatal ischemia, markers of renal function, renal failure and hyperlipidemias.
