"Fast Facts" in each chapter contain interesting tips related to the system. "The Body at Work" addresses physiology of the system under discussion. "Life Lessons" apply A&P information to real-life situations. "Own the Information" exercises ask students to identify the most important points in each chapter and compare them to the learning objectives.
"AO Surgery Reference is an internet-based resource for the management of fractures, based on current clinical principles, practices and available evidence. It describes the complete surgical management process from diagnosis to aftercare for fractures in a given anatomical region, and also assembles relevant published AO material. It is open to anyone, free of charge." -- Description from an Alberta Health Services web resource: http://krs.libguides.com/az.php
"The WebPath® educational resource contains over 2700 images with text that illustrate gross and microscopic pathologic findings along with radiologic imaging associated with human disease conditions. For self-assessment and self-directed study there are over 1300 examination items. There are more than 20 tutorials in specific subject areas. These computer-aided instructional materials support educational programs in the health sciences."--website
This is the only in-depth, single author survey of heart development. It will provide a more systematic, up-to-date synthesis of the subject than any other volume, spanning the range from classical anatomical studies to recent findings in molecular biology. It also covers topics that are often omitted from discussions of heart development, such as myocardial function, cardiac innervation, and conduction development and clinical correlates will be discussed throughout. The book is beautifully illustrated by Karen Waldo, an artist who has collaborated with Dr. Kirby for many years.
Looking at the components of the circulatory system, this video discusses the route of blood circulation, the components of the cardiac conduction system, the path of a cardiac impulse through the heart, the types of blood vessels, and the main components of blood and lymph. “The Circulatory System: Anatomy and Physiology.” Films On Demand, Films Media Group, 2019, fod.infobase.com/PortalPlaylists.aspx?wID=97832&xtid=120725. Accessed 17 June 2020.
This video discusses the different types of nutrients and differentiates between nutrients and electrolytes. It looks at the digestive organs, traces the process of digestions, considers the role of peristalsis in digestion, and looks at the role of blood vessels in digestion.
Defining the term homeostasis, the program examines three classes of hormones produced by the endocrine system and considers the role of negative feedback in hormone activity. It discusses the "master gland," the role of the hypothalamus, the types of thyroid hormones, and the seven major endocrine glands.
WARNING: Viewer discretion advised. Some content in this video may be objectionable. This video shows the layers of the dermis and epidermis, describes the process by which the skin surface forms, explains the roles of collagen and elasatin, and looks at the skin's role in maintaining body temperature. It also consider the two types of glands located in the integumentary system.
Bones are connected to each other at their joints, held in place by ligaments. Movement occurs from the action of 650 muscles attached to bones with tendons. Athletes strengthen and work muscle pairs called antagonists.
Differentiating among skeletal, smooth, and cardiac muscle, this video looks at the properties of muscle tissue and how muscles work together to create movement. It describes the effects of strenuous activity on the muscular system and considers how the terms involuntary and voluntary related to muscles.
This video differentiates between the central and peripheral nervous systems, looking at the types of organs and cells involved. It considers the role of cerebral spinal fluid in the nervous system and describes the funtion of the autonomic nervous system.
WARNING Viewer Discretion is advised. This video contains nudity. Examining the components of the male and female reproductive systems, this video looks at the male and female reproductive cells, discusses the role of hormones in the female reproductive cycle, shows the processes of ovulation and fertilization, and traces the changes that occur to the fertilized egg during pregnancy. It also differentiates between colostrum and breast milk.
Explaining two main functions of the respiratory system, this video differentiates between ventilation and gas exchange, looks at the components of the respiratory system, describes the process of gas exchange, looks at expiration and inhalation, and describes how oxygen and carbon dioxide levels initiate respiration.
This video describes the four shapes of bones, differentiates between diaphysis and epiphyses of the long bones, and looks at the axial and appendicular skeletons. It describes the role of fontanels in protecting the infant's brain, lists five divisions of the vertebral column, names three types of rib pairs in the thorax, and describes the function of the six types of diarthrosis joints.
Looking at the components of the urinary system, this video examines the anatomy of the kidneys, describes the process of urine filtration, explains how micturition occurs, and discusses the role of the urinary system in maintaining homeostasis.

WARNING viewer discretion is advised. Some videos contain nudity. This series provides a comprehensive overview of human anatomy. Each of the ten programs focuses on one body system and includes brief descriptions of how on each system interacts with or impacts others. The information is presented in a logical as well as entertaining format, with clear descriptions and explanations reinforced by full color animated graphics. Comparisons using common experiences and everyday objects assist the learner in remembering the information presented. This series is appropriate for nursing and other healthcare related training programs as well as high school and lower division college science departments. Wide-screen format.
