There are seven organizational approaches to studying the human body are planes and body directions, body cavities, quadrants and regions, anatomy and physiology, microscopic to macroscopic, body systems and medical specializes. Body planes and directions approach is the division of the body in sections by using the mid sagittal plane, the coronal plane, and the transverse plane. This also includes movement toward and away from these planes. This approach might be used when studying particular organs and its surroundings functions. The body cavity approach is the study of the body cavities and the organs in them. It is used when studying specific organs in the body. As well as how a disease is affecting a number of different organs in the human body. Quadrant and regions the approach is the division of the lower torso area into the four quadrant sections help identify the areas in which the internal organs are placed. It is a good approach to use as a good reference when performing a physical exam of the internal organs. Anatomy and physiology this is the study of structures of the human body and the study of the function and workings of them. This is a good approach to use if you wanted to study the structures and working of the nervous system. Physiology most involved with the cycles of sleep. Microscopic-to-macroscopic this approach is the study of the bodies smallest parts Microscopic means the inner structure parts and how they combine to make larger and more or parts that can’t be seen by the eye. Parts and how they combine to make larger complex structures and systems. This is a good approach to use when studying how cells form and come together to form tissues to form organs Body systems this approach is the study of the bodies many organs and how they work in the body. This would be a great approach to use when studying systems of the body like the respiratory system, and their functions. Medical specialty this...
