Pathophysiology I

PATH 3583

This course will provide an introduction to the fundamentals of pathophysiology and related disease processes. The underlying concepts of homeostasis, cellular changes, inflammation, infection, healing and abnormal immune responses will be examined. The basic concepts of fluid - electrolyte and acid – base balance will be analyzed and how imbalances can promote disorder in the body. Common diagnostic testing will be examined and how they are utilized in the process of diagnosing disease and prognostic outcomes. Specific diseases and disorders will be discussed to apply the concepts learned and how they affect the structure and functioning of the human body. Basic treatment modalities are will be reviewed as a foundation of learning to be expanded upon in the practicum experience.
