9780130196941: Laboratory Textbook of Anatomy and Physiology (2nd Edition)

This full-color anatomy and physiology lab manual is an ideal companion to Martini's Fundamentals of Anatomy and Physiology, 6th Edition, but is also appropriate for use with any mainstream anatomy and physiology text. Includes labeling exercises, extensive Lab Reports, QuickCheck review sections, and cat dissections, as well as dissections of other animal organs.

From the Inside Flap:


This laboratory text and study guide is designed for students with a limited background in science who are enrolled in a two semester sequence anatomy and physiology course. The manual is written to correspond to all popular anatomy and physiology texts, especially Frederic Martini's Fundamentals of Anatomy and Physiology, fifth edition. The manual accurately presents background material and laboratory procedures for each exercise. Self-references provide students relevancy and perspective of the material. The laboratory text is designed around the following elements: ORGANIZATION

The laboratory text is arranged into 51 exercises which are split into anatomical and physiological studies. Each exercise consists of student objectives, a terminology guide, materials list, laboratory activities, a laboratory report, and review list called the QuickCheck. An outline approach enables faculty to easily assign specific sections of an exercise. Large systems, such as the skeletal, muscular, and nervous systems, are subdivided into several exercises, the first being an overview exercise that introduces the major anatomical organization. Programs with limited laboratory time may use the overview exercises for a hands-on summary of these organ systems that can be completed during a short laboratory period. STUDENT ACTIVITIES

The text encourages students to become more involved with their learning through self-references, labeling figures, recording observations, and completing laboratory reports. Involvement in these activities will assist students' understanding of human form and function. STUDENT OBJECTIVES

Each exercise includes objectives to identify major themes students should master during the exercise. Laboratory reports at the conclusion of each exercise test for mastery of each objective with a variety of labeling and written assignments. WORD POWER AND PRONUNCIATION GUIDES

To promote student awareness in the language of science, each exercise opens with a "Word Power" list of relevant prefixes, suffixes and root words. In the body of each' exercise, a pronunciation guide is included in parentheses after many terms. Each word is divided into syllables by hyphens, and the main accented syllable of multisyllabic words are in capital letters. An overbar above letters indicates long vowel sounds. MATERIALS

A list of required laboratory equipment, models, prepared microscope slides, and other materials is included at the beginning of each exercise and activity. Faculty will find these lists useful in preparing the laboratory. Students can use the lists to determine the materials necessary to accomplish the laboratory activities. LABORATORY ACTIVITIES

Each section of an exercise concludes with a series of laboratory observations and labeling activities that provide concise instructions and procedures to guide students through the material. References to laboratory models, microscopic specimens, and text figures clearly delineate the assignments required to master the student objectives. BIOPAC ALTERNATIVE EXERCISES

New to the second edition are three alternate exercises using the Biopac Student Laboratory System, an integrated suite of hardware and software that provides students with powerful tools for physiological studies. The probes and transducers are designed for quick set-ups that easily configure for various investigations such as muscle contraction (EMG), the electrocardiogram ECG, and pulse. The manual includes step by step instructions to guide students in the set up and use of the hardware and software. The Biopac Student Laboratory System works in both Macintosh™ and Windows™ operating environments. ART PROGRAM

A major strength of this laboratory manual is the outstanding full-color art program with illustrations by William Ober and Claire Garrison and photographs by Ralph Hutchings. The art is designed to guide students from familiar to detailed structures. The text cites the art at appropriate times to entwine reading and visual learning modalities. Figures include detailed legends, reference icons, pin-point labeling, and multidimensional view of the human body. Numerous figures incorporate written labeling assignments as part of the laboratory activities. CLINICAL APPLICATIONS

Many exercises include relevant discussions of disease and injury in boxed clinical application sections. Thought-provoking critical thinking questions are featured in many of these boxed sections. DISSECTIONS

Dissection gives students perspectives on the texture, scale, and relationships of anatomy. The dissection specimens presented in this manual are the cat and sheep organs. Exercise 23 details preparation and dissection of the cat muscular system. Dissection of other cat organ systems are included in the corresponding anatomy exercises, as are sheep brain, eye, heart, and kidney dissections. Safety guidelines and disposal methods are incorporated into each dissection exercise. LABORATORY SAFETY

Correct usage of instrumentation and safe handling and disposal of chemical and biological wastes are emphasized in appropriate exercises throughout the manual. Exercise 1 covers laboratory safety and should be completed by all students at the beginning of a semester. QUICKCHECKS

QuickChecks are review lists of the important terminology and structures presented in each exercise. Students may use the lists to review laboratory models and as terminology lists to practice spelling. Faculty will find the lists useful to post assigned laboratory sections or structures by highlighting words on the QuickChecks. LABORATORY REPORTS

Comprehensive laboratory reports are located at the conclusion of each exercise. The reports include a variety of tasks such as matching, short-answer questions, fill-in-the-blanks, and drawings to reinforce the laboratory objectives. Instructors may utilize the reports for quizzes and out-of-class assignments. The page layout of the manual permits the removal of the laboratory reports without loss of other material. ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

I thank the talented and creative individuals of the Prentice Hall team. I especially credit Don O'Neal, Project Manager, for his expertise in organizing and coordinating the enormous details of the project during a tight production schedule. Halee Dinsey, Senior Acquisitions Editor, ensured that all resources were available to me, Don, and the production staff. Barbara Murray, Special Projects Manager, provided the production house with art and text files. I thank Terry Routley and her fine team at Carlisle Publishers Services for their creative layout and attention to detail. The Carlisle team and I used soft-copy or digital editing for the second edition production and I am appreciative of their willingness to incorporate this technology into their process.

Foremost, I am grateful to Frederic H. Martini, author of Fundamentals of Anatomy and Physiology, fifth edition, and Human Anatomy, third edition, with Michael J. Timmons and Michael McKinley, for their insight and creativity in visualizing anatomical and physiological concepts. Together, with illustrations by William Ober and Claire Garrison and photographs by Ralph Hutchings, they have created the intelligible art I have fortunately had access to.

Many individuals made significant contributions to the first edition text which are now incorporated into the new version. Thank you again to Edward J. Greding Jr., Anil Rao, Joe Wheeler, Michael Timmons, and Michael McKinley for their generosity. I am grateful to Esmeralda Salazar and Gerardo Cobarruvias from Del Mar College for their technical talent in the photography studio. I also thank my colleague Albert Drumright, III, for our ongoing discussions of biology and teaching. I thank Biopac Systems, Inc. for their partnership with Prentice Hall and assistance in incorporating their state-of-the-art instrumentation into the second edition.

My gratitude is extended to the many students who have provided suggestions and comments to me over the years. Reviewers and users of the first edition manual provided insightful and experienced-based suggestions, many of which are incorporated into the second edition. I thank the reviewers for their time and devotion to the project:
