Body Structure and Organization: Help identify a potentially failing organ system

About this Simulation

Quick, call the emergency hotline! In this simulation, you'll learn about the organ systems that keep our body running and some of their major functions. You'll identify body cavities to understand where the organ systems are placed and how they are protected. Knowing about organ systems and body cavities can help you narrow down which organ system might be failing when you are faced with a critical situation in the lab. Keep an eye on your lab buddy's symptoms You'll be paired up with Myra, your lab buddy for the day. Myra isn't feeling very well, and you'll have to take note of her symptoms to understand what might be causing them. What you notice may make a difference when calling the emergency hotline. Identify organ systems and body cavitiesTo help assess what might be going on with Myra, dive deeper into the organ systems, their major functions, and the body cavities they're placed in. Your new knowledge will be tested in a recap activity where you will link the appropriate organ systems to their cavities. Help the emergency respondersAfter observing Myra's symptoms and learning about body cavities and organ systems, you will be faced with a medical emergency. It's time to call in some more experienced hands. Support the emergency crew in diagnosing Myra by answering their questions. Your input will most certainly make a difference!
