NURS 5330 - Advanced Pathophysiology

Hours: 3
This course builds on knowledge of basic pathophysiology to examine current understanding of cell and tissue mechanisms that cause disease, and how these produce the symptoms and signs that we recognize clinically. The processes of cell adaptation and injury, apoptosis, necrosis, aging, thromboembolism, ischemia, infarction, fluid and chemistry imbalances, neuroendocrine abnormalities, inflammation, infection, immune dysfunction, genetic abnormalities and malignancy will be studied, illustrated by disease examples and case studies. Additionally the world burden of disease will be considered, including infection, infestation, malnutrition, and obesity.
