    The integumentary system plays an intrinsic role in the function of the human body. The system is made up of the skin and skin derivatives such as hair, nails, glands and receptors and provides the body with a line of defence against foreign, infectious pathogens (Moore et al., 2013). The skin is the most vulnerable organ to injury and disease as it is an external organ and the largest organ of the body, contributing to approximately 15% of the body’s weight (Hackman, 2014). The skin also helps to

    The hemostatic system of the human body is responsible for the complex task of maintaining blood in a liquid state in order to effectively circulate in our veins and arteries, while simultaneously being able to convert blood into fibrin and prothrombin at sites of injury. Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is formed in the setting of reduced-flow and low-shear stress, and is made up of fibrin strands, red blood cells and platelets. In 1856, Rudolf Virchow postulated that ‘hypercoagulability’ of the blood

    While medication can aid in sickness, the human body is actually built to naturally defend itself using the immune system. The immune system is comprised of biological structures and processes that protect the body from pathogens which cause disease or sickness. As much as the immune system does to protect us, it is the chief hurdle of transplantation of living cells from one organism to another. The immune system recognizes anything foreign put into the body as a threat that must be removed. Consequently

    Introduction One of the very complex systems in the human body is the digestive system where many experiments have been conducted to determine the necessary factors to breakdown food. The digestive system uses enzymes in order to break down the macromolecules that humans consume daily and balances the fluid that gets put inside the body with the amount that goes out. It goes through four processes as follows: digestion which breaks down food into smaller components, absorption which absorbs
