Unit learning outcomes

  1. Demonstrate the following knowledge and understanding. Identify and describe the gross and microscopic structural properties of various body systems and relate these to their respective functions.
  2. Demonstrate the following skills and abilities. Demonstrate skills in data analysis, reporting, and information literacy in a scientific/clinical context to evaluate the interrelationship of the structure and function of various organs.

Results

Present your values in a table together with the data from the seven individuals and their mean values. Use a table similar to that of the protocol. The table must be labeled and contain a title. Provide workings for all calculations and make sure measurements contain units. Remember to clearly indicate which method you used to calculate VO2 max. Calculate the mean values for the group of 7 individuals and include these values in your table. Do not forget to describe ‘your’ results and the group results in words and refer to your table in the main text. (100 words)

Discussion

Discuss your results and, if any, the relationship between the anthropometric values and fitness status. To help you with this, you should carry out the tasks and consider the questions listed below. (450 words)

  1. Briefly discuss the values you obtained and compare them to the mean values of the group.
  2. Does the rating related to your VO2 value correspond to health fitness status suggested by the BMI? So in your opinion is BMI a reliable estimation of your health status?
  3. Does your arm span relate to your height? By comparing the values obtained for each individual shown in table 1, so you find any relationship between height and health fitness?
  4. Why do subjects have different heart rates and different VO2 when doing exactly the same amount of work?
  5. Why would having a high maximal oxygen uptake be beneficial?
  6. What considerations might you have to make when predicting maximal oxygen uptake from heart rate of an elderly population?
  7. What do you think about the methods you have used to determine arm span, BMI and VO2 max? Do they have any limitations?

Conclusion

By referring on your results and comparisons, decide if arm span is a good predictor of height and fitness and if BMI and VO2max are good predictors of health and fitness. (50 words)

References/Bibliography

Refer to text books and research journals that you can find in the library or through the LRC electronic resources. The references should be listed in correct UoB Harvard format in a single reference list.

Include at least 10 references.

What do I need to do to pass? (Threshold Expectations from UIF)

In order to pass the assessment, you will need to:

  • Produce a scientific report according to expectations described in the assessment brief
  • Demonstrate understanding of relevant laboratory techniques in the practical and/or report
  • Demonstrate understanding of the interrelationship between the relevant anatomical systems

How do I produce high quality work that merits a good grade?

A high quality report should:

  • Contain a title page giving the assessment title, unit code, assessment number, your student number and your final word count (excluding references)
  • Be created electronically using Microsoft Word
  • Contain an appropriate labelled table referred to in the main text
  • Cite at least 10 references and no more than 20
