CAHS 142 - Pathophysiology of Disease (3)


Pathophysiology of diseases will build upon previously learned knowledge of normal anatomy and normal physiology. This course will discuss pathologies and abnormalities that are deviations from the norm. For all pathologies, we will discuss causes, signs and symptoms, diagnosis, diagnostic tests, treatments, and prognosis. The pathologies will be organized according to the body system, including cardiovascular, respiratory, immune, gastrointestinal, urinary, reproductive, endocrine, nervous, musculoskeletal, and integumentary. Other topics will include infectious diseases, neoplasms, hereditary diseases, diseases of the blood, and mental/cognitive disorders.
