A Friend in Need is a Friend Indeed
A Case Study on Human Respiratory Physiology
William H. Cliff
Ann W. Wright
This directed case study was designed to help students strengthen their understanding of the transport of oxygen in the blood through an analysis of the pathophysiology of a common, real-world problem, namely, carbon monoxide poisoning. The case was developed for use by undergraduates majoring in biology, nursing, and education who are enrolled in a two-semester course in human anatomy and physiology.
