On completion of this module, students should be able to..
1. Identify key physiological terms, abbreviations and units
2. Describe the key structural and functional characteristics of the cardiovascular and ventilatory systems in the context of the exercising human
3. Demonstrate knowledge of anaerobic and aerobic metabolism
4. Demonstrate competence int he following laboratory techniques: collection and downloading of heart rate using the Polar systems; the three-lead ECG, sphygmomanometry, microloop spirometer ('spirometry'), the Douglas bag
5. Demonstrate good laboratory practice with regard to health and safety issues.
This module introduces the cardio-respiratory physiology of sport and exercise. Students will receive grounding in the structure and function of the cario-ventilatory systems along with understanding of aerobic and anaerobic metabolism. A wide range of sport and exercise situations will be considered to demonstrate the applied interpretation of the theory. A series of laboratory practicals will introduce some of the primary techniques used by the sport and exercise physiologist.
1. Enable students to become familiar with basic physiological terminology
2. Introduce students to aspects of cardio-respiratory physiology relevant to sport and exercise
3. Introduce students to key physiological laboratory techniques for analyzing human performance and to develop practical competence in these techniques.
