Physiology & Bio-Chemistry

The word "Physiology" comes from the Ancient Greek physis, which means "nature, origin", and logia, which mean "study of".

Physiology is the scientific study of normal function in living systems. A sub-discipline of biology, its focus is in how organisms, organ systems, organs, cells, and bio-molecules carry out the chemical or physical functions that exist in a living system.

Physiology aims to understand the mechanisms of living and how living things work. Human physiology studies how our cells, muscles and organs work together, how they interact. Physiology, sometimes referred to as the "science of life", looks at living mechanisms, from the molecular basis of cell function to the whole integrated behaviour of the entire body.

Physiologists say that physiology is a fundamental science for understanding about "life", how to go about treating diseases and coping with the stresses our bodies are exposed to in different environments. Pathophysiology seeks to understand the abnormalities that occur in humans. Physiologists work closely with other scientists and health care professionals in seeking out new methods for treating various diseases.

Biochemistry, sometimes called biological chemistry, is the study of chemical processes within and relating to living organisms. Much of biochemistry deals with the structures, functions and interactions of biological macromolecules, such as proteins, nucleic acids, carbohydrates and lipids, which provide the structure of cells and perform many of the functions associated with life.

BHMC has team of efficient and experienced senior teachers in Physiology and Biochemistry Department. The theory Classes are complemented with practical exposure in our well equipped lab. At BHMC we allow students to perform various practicals related to Blood, Urine and Bio Chemical Reactions as well as systemic functions like Pulse, Blood Pressure, ECG, Spirometry, Reflexes etc. for better understanding of the subject.
