How Much of Biology/Physiology 101 Do You Remember?

June 12, 2017

,
Quiz

Physiology is the study of the mechanical, physical, and biochemical processes of living organisms function as a whole. Physiology is also the study the interaction of how, for example, the nervous, immune, endocrine, respiratory, and circulatory systems, function and interplay. The study of these systems is shared with such medically oriented disciplines as neurology and immunology. The theme of “structure to function“ is central to biology. Physiological studies have traditionally been divided into plant physiology and animal physiology, but some principles of physiology are universal, no matter what particular organism is being studied. For example, what is learned about the physiology of yeast cells can also apply to human cells. The field of animal physiology extends the tools and methods of human physiology to non-human species. Plant physiology borrows techniques from both research fields.

An EHR may include one's medical history, notes, and other information about one's health including symptoms, diagnoses, medications, lab results, vital signs, immunizations, and reports from diagnostic tests such as x-rays. The information in EHRs can be shared with other organizations if the computer systems are set up to talk to each other. Information in these records should only be shared for purposes authorized by law or by individuals. There are privacy rights whether information is stored as a paper record or stored in an electronic form. The same federal laws that already protect health information also apply to information in EHRs.
