The topics start with general ideas about body systems,
terms used in describing the structures of the body - where they are, how they
lie, their subdivisions, their blood and nerve supply, etc; the tissues and cell
types making up organs; and the structure and workings of cells. Then, explains the individual systems of the body, e.g., muscular, respiratory, etc.
The aim of this note is to build your foundation in
the developmental process and the structure of the human body as such prepares
you to apply your knowledge in planning to meet the care needs of your body and
that of your clients as such may relate to normal and abnormal changes in the
various organs that make up the body. Topics covered includes: Introduction to
the Human body, Embryology, Placenta Formation and Functions, Support and
Movement, Integumentary System, Skeletal System, Muscular system.
This lectures will
predominantly cover functional anatomy within specific systems. The 4 primary
tissues of the human body, Epithelium, Connective, Muscular, and Nervous, will
be studied in detail. How they contribute to the structures of the human body
will be studied throughout this note and the following topics will be
specifically covered in this order: Basic Anatomical Terminology, Sensory
System, Histology, Circulatory System, Integumentary System, Respiratory System,
skeletal System, Digestive System, Articular System, Endocrine System,
Musculature System, Urinary System, Nervous System and Reproductive System.
This note is designed to
familiarize the student with the organs of the human body on both the micro- and
macroscopic levels. At the completion of this note the student should understand
the basic anatomical organization of the human body including the relative
position of various organs, systems and tissues. Some information about organ
system functions will also be included.
is a fundamental science that studies the structure of the human body from
ancient times. Over time, the discipline constantly expands with recent progress
that has been produced in researching the human body. So, new methods of
researching were incorporated in the anatomy development: plastic materials
injections, plastination, computed techniques of sectional bodies, and
embryology.Topics covered includes: Innovative Technologies for Medical
Education, Anatomical Correlation of the Arterial Blood Supply to the Spinal
Cord in Human and Experimental Animals, Human Brain Anatomy, Cardiac Anatomy for
the Electrophysiologist with Emphasis on the Left Atrium and Pulmonary Veins,
Anatomical, Biological, and Surgical Features of Basal Ganglia, Mesencephalon,
covers the following topics related to human anatomy: Anatomical orientation,
Introduction to the nervous system, Spinal cord and spinal nerve, Movements of
the upper limb, movements of the lower limbs, Introduction to joints,
Introduction to the autonomic nervous system, Autonomics of the thorax,
Abdominal viscera basics, Gut development, Autonomics of the abdomen, Autonomics
of the pelvis, Cranial nerves, Autonomics of the head and neck.
The lecture note provides a thorough review of human anatomy and physiology applicable to the nurses. It covers all
body parts using a systemic approach. Topics covered includes: Cell, Tissues and Membrane, The Integumentary System, The Skeletal System, The Muscular System, The Nervous
System, The Endocrine System, Cardiovascular System, Respiratory System, Digestive System, The Urinary System, Fluid and Electrolyte Balance, The

This guide covers the following
topics related to Facial Nerve Anatomy: Embryology of the Facial Nerve, Central
Connections, Cerebellopontine Angle and the Internal Acoustic Meatus,
Intratemporal Course of the Facial Nerve, Extratemporal Facial Nerve, Facial
Nerve Paralysis and Vascular Supply of the Facial Nerve.
