Medical Disorders and Pharmacology
Instructor of Record: Lori Flynn
This course introduces the learner to important concepts related to human diseases. The most common diseases
and disorders of each body system are presented along with a review of the anatomy and physiology pertinent to
that system. Additionally, causes, diagnoses, treatments, and medications of disorders common to each system
are presented. PREREQUISITES:

MEDICAL DISORDERS & PHARMACOLOGY
This course involves a review of the most common diseases and disorders of each body system along with a
basic anatomy and physiology review of each system. Additionally, causes, diagnoses, treatments, and
medications of disorders common to each body system are studied.
Recommended Plan of Study
To cover the material in each chapter adequately, I recommend you first read each chapter, highlighting key
terms and information. Complete the study guide for each chapter and study from study guide. However, if you
are going to rely on the information contained in your study guide, you must be thorough in your answers. You
can check your study guide answers against the answer key in the flex lab if you wish.
Tests will be matching, true and false, and multiple choice.
Tests will include information from the study guide
as well as medication information for certain body systems as contained in the pharmacology supplement:
“Drug Classifications Per Body System.” Please see your course breakdown for chapters including
pharmacology. You will not
be responsible for spellings of specific drug names or all drugs listed in the tables.
You are only responsible for knowing the drugs listed after DRUGS within each drug classification. These
drugs have an asterisk within the table. You will need to know what each type of drug is used for with the body
systems and the most commonly prescribed drugs for each body system (see tables in Pharmacology
supplement). For example, broad categories of drugs such as the following will be in a matching format on the
= are used in treating many infections of the respiratory tract and for skin conditions
= are used to treat infections caused by susceptible fungi.
OPTIONAL STUDY GUIDES FOR EACH CHAPTER ARE AVAILABLE IN THE THIRD DRAWER
OF THE STUDENT FILE CABINET IN THE FLEX LAB. Once you complete a study guide, you can
check it with an answer key available from the Flex Lab instructors and use it as a study tool for tests.
Sample Test Format for Drug portion
In the first blank to the left of each drug category indicate the
letter that best matches that category. Also
indicate the correct
number(s) for drugs used with that drug category

1 Affinity tagging kinases and phosphatases The first step in our AP-MS procedure is to generate an epitope tagged version of a protein of interest. We utilize the Flp-In vector pcDNA5-FRT-TO (Invitrogen) to inducibly express fusion proteins with a single N-terminal FLAG epitope. The single epitope tag was engineered by subcloning the FLAG and multiple cloning sites from the vector pcDNA3-FLAG
Radiofrequency Lesioning 1. What is Radiofrequency? Radiofrequency waves are electromagnetic waves which travel at the speed of light, or 186,000 miles per second (300,000 km/s). Radiofrequency Energy is a type of heat energy that is created by a special generator at very high or super high frequencies. With the use of this specialized generator, heat energy is created and delivered wi
