Why don't I leave those questions to you and I do the anatomy and easy physiology part?

The rules says that it's minimal physiology, but I doubt it'll actually be that way.
Some questions for respiratory might be: "In what form is most carbon dioxide carried in the blood?" or maybe "What is responsible for the change in voice pitch?"
Some questions for digestive might be: "What hormone stimulates secretion of gastric juices?" or maybe "What emulsifies fats before the main chemical digestion by lipase?"
Agreed, physiology is important to memorize. Also, what I think are the answers to your physiology questions:

1. HCO3-, or hydrogen bicarbonate
2. Different oscillation of the vocal cords
3. Gastrin?
4. Bile from the liver.

I'm not sure about the third one.

1. HCO3-, or hydrogen bicarbonate
From a chemistry standpoint, HCO3- is bicarbonate or hydrogen carbonate. Not a mixture of the two names. (Nitpicking tends to occur when you deal with the naming of chemical compounds.)

They're all correct, although I was thinking of #2 as vocal cord tension.

Ahh, thanks Koko. No wonder it sounded like a mouthful :P

Do you have questions that are more application than straight facts, because that would really help me.
I understand most of the concepts, but applying them is where I struggle.
Thanks.... :D

Circulatory system diseases are due to nutrients deficiency. To keep our circulatory system healthy we have to eat healthy food, and to exercise moderately and have to avoid great amount fat containing products.

Um...no need to get into the circulatory system. Neither Div B nor Div C needs to know anything about the circulatory system...or any system but digestive and respiratory, and excretory for Div C.

Anatomy B/C

Postby Munchkin13 » February 11th, 2012, 7:00 pm

I am new to anatomy this year, and I am doing the digestive half of this years test (my partner is doing the respiratory). I was wondering what I should know to do well in this event. Also what do you recommend I put on the cheat sheet and what I should know for sure for the test. Thanks. :D
