Would we have to know carbohydrates, proteins, lipids, etc. in depth for the digestive system in A + P. The event overview on Soinc says physiology of chemical digestion but not about the molecule properties itself, i.e. shape, functional groups (more towards organic chem).

Thanks for all that reply.

Hi, can anyone please guide how to study for Anotomy and physiology? Materials / good resources ? Thanks

From my experience from A/P in Science Olympiad, I can say that you should probably know at least the basics. Knowing the basics of macro molecules would keep you on the safe side. However, I wouldn't spend a lot of time studying that.

I use Khan Academy to understand the basics of systems. Then I use a textbook(no particular one) and get more info. Then fill in the gaps by looking up specific questions from the vast internet. The internet will be your best friend ultimately.

Thank you buddy101 for the reply.

I have one more (and hopefully last question to ask). I've been working through the digestive system anatomy on the sci oly wiki page, and each accesory organ/organs in the ailementary canals are pretty in depth. However, the overview sheet says we just needs have to know "Basic anatomy of the component parts of the ailementary canal and accesory organs of digestion" and "anatomy and functions of the digestive system". Based on these two points, what constitutes "basic anatomy" or in a different wording, how in depth do I have to know each digestive organ?

https://scioly.org/wiki/index.php/Anato ... scriptions

^In the above link/section (the sci oly wiki page for Digestive system), I don't know how to differentiate between which materials are national level and which are regular leveled.

Thanks

From my rather limited experience with this event, I would say that the more you know the better. The first thing you need to do is get a solid overview on everything. Then just spend your time on the internet going deeper and deeper.

BTW, you don't need to be so formal, lol. :lol:

This is my first time doing Anatomy and Physiology or any testing event that allows a very small amount of notes sheets. When the rules say general principles on he anatomy of the respiratory system, does that really only include the parts of the respiratory system, or how it works completely, or what happens on a molecular level, or is it all of that combined? Does patterns of breathing refer to certain circumstances?

Pretty much all of them -
Parts of the respiratory system: lungs, larynx, their functions, etc
How it works: the purpose of the system, how it interacts with other systems
Tiny tiny tiny things - oxygen in the alveoli, gas exchange
It is also important to know the relationship between macroscopic and microscopic parts of the system and not think about the different scales as completely different processes.

In terms of breathing patterns, I think that they would test more on breathing pattern abnormalities (apnea, eupnea, etc) although I'm not 100% sure on this one

OK, thanks. Just a place to get started now, I guess.
