Natomy & Physiology II Case Study: Barack Obama & Smoking

BIO 202 Anatomy and Physiology Case Study Directions


 Body of Paper: Discuss the phenomenon of your case in anatomical/physiological terms as if you were explaining them to someone who is intelligent but knows little about anatomy and physiology. Discuss the effects of your topic on cells, tissues, organs and organ systems primarily as they relate to this semester (i.e. organ systems covered during this semester). You MUST include the basic normal structure/functions of each system mentioned in your paper to be able to explain what is occurring physiologically and anatomically with this case.

Basic themes to address:
” 1. What major systems are involved?
” 2. For each system:
 A. explain how a normal system works  comparing a normal system with how it works in your case in terms of structure (anatomy) and function of each system mentioned. Be careful to describe and define basic anatomy and physiology terms and structures.
 B. Explain what happens at the cell/tissue/organ levels to cause the manifestations seen in the current case
” 3. Explain how the systems you discussed are interrelated. Look at the big picture  how does each phenomenon affect the ENTIRE body (remember  it all works together)



Your bibliography must follow APA format and must be alphabetized. Note: Journal articles that happen to be available online are NOT considered internet sources.
