Anatomy and Physiology is a dynamic textbook for the two-semester human anatomy and physiology course for life science and allied health majors. The book is organized by body system and covers standard scope and sequence requirements. Its lucid text, strategically constructed art, career features, and links to external learning tools address the critical teaching and learning challenges in the course. The web-based version of Anatomy and Physiology also features links to surgical videos, histology, and interactive diagrams.

Welcome to the band here at NDSCS! We are going to have a lot of fun, making music, and getting better and better each time we meet. Whether this is the first time you’ve ever played in a band, or you’ve been playing for years; whether you were your high school’s top chair player or you struggled to get through a B♭ concert scale, there is a place for you here.

In this activity, learners work in teams to construct human lung models from small plastic beverage bottles and balloons. Learners use the models to investigate how movements of the diaphragm cause lungs to inflate. This activity can be enhanced by sharing the "Health Hazards of Lunar Dust" Podcast with learners (see related resource link). This resource includes background information and variation ideas.

Engineers design methods of removing particulate matter from industrial sources to minimize negative effects of air pollution. In this activity, students will undertake a similar engineering challenge as they design and build a filter to remove pepper from an air stream without blocking more than 50% of the air.

I Breathe WHAT??

Students capture and examine air particles to gain an appreciation of how much dust, pollen and other particulate matter is present in the air around them. Students place "pollution detectors" at various locations to determine which places have a lot of particles in the air and which places do not have as many. Quantifying and describing these particles is a first step towards engineering methods of removing contaminants from the air.

Measuring lung motion for better lung cancer treatment

This resource is a video abstract of a research paper created by Research Square on behalf of its authors. It provides a synopsis that's easy to understand, and can be used to introduce the topics it covers to students, researchers, and the general public. The video's transcript is also provided in full, with a portion provided below for preview:

"Lung phantoms are dynamic systems that simulate lung motion to predict tumor position for lung radiotherapy These predictions make cancer radiotherapy more precise, as lung tumors move during breathing Unfortunately, current lung motion phantoms don’t account for complex motion and deformation of surrounding organs Now, researchers at the University of Maryland, Baltimore, have developed a lung phantom that can produce complex and irregular motions by using a motion platform with two independently programmable linear actuators The phantom provides reliable measurements of the tumor as well as surrounding organs at risk and can simulate variation in abdominal and thoracic engagement While the new lung phantom can’t fully reproduce human breathing, it comes pretty close It is a valuable tool for evaluating motion management strategies in lung radiotherapy Ranjbar et al. "A novel deformable lung phantom with programably variable external and internal correlation..."

The rest of the transcript, along with a link to the research itself, is available on the resource itself.

Polluted Air = Polluted Lungs

Rating
0.0 stars

To gain a better understanding of the roles and functions of components of the human respiratory system and our need for clean air, students construct model lungs that include a diaphragm and chest cavity. They see how air moving in and out of the lungs coincides with diaphragm movement. Then student teams design and build a prototype face mask pollution filter. They use their model lungs to evaluate their prototypes to design requirements.

Swimming with Sea Cows: Manatees
Read the Fine Print
Rating
0.0 stars

When manatees were first seen by Columbus, he thought they were mermaids..but he had been at sea for a long time! Today these gentle marine mammals are threatened by loss of habitat and collisions with boats. This video segment explores the endangered manatees of Florida and their struggle to survive, as well as some of the people who are working to save them. Please see the accompanying lesson plan for educational objectives, discussion points and classroom activities.
