  • Body Temperature

  • Atmospheric Pressure



Components of a Homeostatic Event

  • The body ____________ to maintain a constant state. If hot-try to cool, if dehydrated-conserve moisture.

  • Receptor

  • Control


  • Effector

Homeostatic imbalance

Homeostatic Imbalance

  • Most diseases are classified as Homeostatic Imbalance

  • In every chapter, example of homeostatic imbalance will be discussed

  • They are indicated in your text by a RULER BALANCED ON A PYRAMID

  • Find 2 in your book now, give page number and explanation

Anatomical positioning

Anatomical Positioning

THE Anatomical Position

***Please assume this position by your desk***

A person in the anatomical position is standing erect with the head, eyes and toes pointing forward, feet together with arms by the side. The palms of the hands are also point forward.
