    One thing we did not cover regarding metabolism is the effect of hormones on metabolism. Hormones are just as important as enzymes. A lack of or an overabundance of any hormone will cause serious disorders of metabolism. Diabetes Mellitus is a great example of this! If the pancreas does not produce and secrete enough of the hormone insulin the body is unable to metabolize sugar. A high level of glucose in the blood can be life threatening. Hypothyroidism is another great example. If the thyroid gland does not produce and secrete enough of the hormone T4 or T3 all of the bodies processes are drastically slowed. This often leads to obesity, fatigue, dry skin, and much more. Metabolism sustains life and there are many factors that determine the level of metabolism in our bodies. All of our organ systems need to function properly and work together for homeostasis and thus, metabolism to enjoy healthy lives. Eat right, be physically active, and enjoy life!

    The sensory organs are specialized extentions of the nervous system that respond to specific stimuli and conduct nerve impules. Senses are classified according to the location, the structure of its receptors, or which stimulus it responds to.

    As a student nurse, care of patients with damage to any part of the eye needs to be done with knowledge. It is important to understand how the eye works and what affects each part. A common condition that nurses see is glaucoma. The increased pressure in the eye causes progressively worsening damage. Knowing what causes the increased pressure, how it affects the eye, and how to reduce it may prolong the time a patient is able to retain his sight. We are trained to know that to avoid increased pressure, we need to teach our patients not to bend, lift, or strain. We need to know that patients with glaucoma cannot take medications that cause vasoconstriction. We also need to monitor our patients for signs and symptoms of complications, so that corrective measures can be implemented if possible.
    It's a little overwhelming to think of all the processes taking place as we enjoy a cheesecake, listen to your children tell a story, smelling the fresh cut grass, holding your husbands hand, or watching a sunrise. We experience these things without thinking much about them, but our bodies are designed to have receptors to receive stimulants, pathways to send the information, and centers that can interpret and respond appropriately.

    The hypophysis, or pituitary gland, is divided into two lobes, the anterior or adenohypophysis and the posterior or neurohypophysis, and is attached to the hypothalamus by the infundibulum. These two parts are not only structurally divided, but also functionally divided. The anterior pituitary produces and secretes its own hormones into the blood stream, while the posterior pituitary stores hormones produced in the hypothalamus and the release of these hormones is controlled by neural regulation.

    This project was a great way for us to have a better understanding of how each system applied to our field of nursing. It also greatly improved our research and communication skills. We worked well as a team for our Wiki project and we gained knowledge of the human body and all learned from each other.

    Final Conclusion- Physiology
    What did you learn by doing this project?
    This project was a great way for us to have a better understanding of how each system applied to our field of nursing. It also greatly improved our research and communication skills. We worked well as a team for our Wiki project and we gained knowledge of the human body and all learned from each other.
    Did this project help you evaluate, analyze, and critically think about the concepts in physiology and how they apply to you and your career?
    Yes! We were able to directly relate experiences learned during our clinical rotations to what we have learned in our physiology class. What diseases and illnesses we have encountered, to how each system is involved, and why certain treatments are done, and the affects on the patients.
