Daly, Frank J.; Bolender, David L.; Jain, Deepali; Uyeda, Sheryl; Hoagland, Todd M. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2015
Integrated medical curricular changes are altering the historical regional anatomy approach to abdominal dissection. The renal system is linked physiologically and biochemically to the cardiovascular and respiratory systems; yet, anatomists often approach the urinary system as part of the abdomen and pelvic regions. As part of an integrated…

Rae, Guenevere; McGoey, Robin; Donthamsetty, Supriya; Newman, William P. – HAPS Educator, 2018
The purpose of this study was to develop a teaching guide to demonstrate the gross characteristics of pathology in embalmed cadaveric lungs and to and to assess the guide as an effective teaching tool. Ninety-eight embalmed cadaveric lungs were screened for pathology. The characteristics of pathologic states of the embalmed lungs were recorded and…

Rae, Guenevere; McGoey, Robin; Donthamsetty, Supriya; Newman, William P., III – HAPS Educator, 2017
The purpose of this project was to develop guides to assist in the examination of a fixed cadaveric hearts and evaluate their effectiveness for assisting students in identifying pathologic lesions. A thorough anatomic examination was performed on 36 cadaveric hearts to determine the "normal" characteristics of an embalmed cadaveric heart…

Rae, Guenevere; Newman, William P., III; Donthamsetty, Supriya; McGoey, Robin – HAPS Educator, 2017
The purpose of this study was to create a guide to assist students in evaluating an embalmed cadaveric kidney for pathologic lesions and to assess the guide as an effective teaching tool. Seventy-six kidneys were screened grossly and histologically for pathology. The most common pathologic incidences discovered during the screening were:…

Rae, Guenevere; Newman, William P., III; McGoey, Robin; Donthamsetty, Supriya; Karpinski, Aryn C.; Green, Jeffrey – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2018
The purpose of this study was to examine the histopathologic reliability of embalmed cadaveric tissue taken from the gross anatomy laboratory. Tissue samples from hearts, livers, lungs, and kidneys were collected after the medical students' dissection course was completed. All of the cadavers were embalmed in a formalin-based fixative solution.…

Dirks-Naylor, Amie J. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2016
Renal transport is a central mechanism underlying electrolyte homeostasis, acid base balance and other essential functions of the kidneys in human physiology. Thus, knowledge of the anatomy and physiology of the nephron is essential for the understanding of kidney function in health and disease. However, students find this content difficult to…

Kumar, Vishnu P.; Zuercher, Jennifer; Gopalan, Chaya – HAPS Educator, 2020
Possessing awareness about the human body is important for the maintenance of good health. To increase such awareness in children's daily lives, we developed and implemented a two-hour activity session for a group of nine Cub Scouts. Three graduate students, one undergraduate student, and one high school student assisted faculty during this…

Karpinski, Aryn C.; Rae, Guenevere; McGoey, Robin R.; Cork, R. John; Swartz, William; Mellott, Jennifer – AERA Online Paper Repository, 2016
This study examined the impact of a pathology guide on student performance in identifying pathologic lesions compared to traditional learning resources (e.g., texts, atlases). The pathology guide was constructed to assist students in the health professions identify pathologic lesions during dissection in the gross anatomy laboratory. First-year…

Hulburd, Kimberly – 1987
A description is provided of a course, "Care of the Patient with Renal Disease," offered at the community college level to prepare licensed registered nurses to care for patients with renal disease, including instruction in performing the treatments of peritoneal dialysis and continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD). The first…

Massey, Ann T. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2015
This case study involves the role of the kidneys in regulating blood pH and electrolytes. The case was used near the end of a two-semester Human Anatomy and Physiology course sequence, during the time when renal physiology was under study. Groups of two to three students were given the case and associated information (lab values, etc.). Students…

Denis, Colette; Lasfargues, Charline; Buffin-Meyer, Bénédicte – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2021
The practical work described here is designed for third-year bachelor students in Life Sciences attending a kidney physiology course. It illustrates how urinary biochemistry can be used for a medical diagnosis. Students have to measure glucose, proteins, and creatinine concentrations in three simulated urine samples. First, they independently…

Vagula, Mary; Liu, He – HAPS Educator, 2018
Students find it hard to understand acid-base homeostasis and the mechanisms involved in compensating for acid-base imbalances, including the role of the lungs and kidneys in this process. We have developed a laboratory activity based on collaborative problem-based learning and human patient simulators (HPSs) to teach this topic. Students (n=50)…

Çuçin, Arzu; Özgür, Sami; Güngör Cabbar, Burcu – World Journal of Education, 2020
Information that is different from scientific knowledge, consistent and resistant to change, can be expressed as misconceptions. Misconceptions are one of the critical factors that prevent students from understanding in Biology education. This study was conducted in Kosovo with high school 12th-grade students of three different ethnic origins. It…

Roth, Jeremy A.; Wilson, Timothy D.; Sandig, Martin – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2015
Histology is a core subject in the anatomical sciences where learners are challenged to interpret two-dimensional (2D) information (gained from histological sections) to extrapolate and understand the three-dimensional (3D) morphology of cells, tissues, and organs. In gross anatomical education 3D models and learning tools have been associated…
