Removing the seal of the bottle reduces the pressure of the gas over the liquid. This in turn causes bubbles as dissolved gases (in this case, carbon dioxide) come out of solution in the liquid. The most common symptoms of DCS are pain in the joints, with headache and disturbances of vision occurring in 10 percent to 15 percent of cases. Left untreated, very severe DCS can result in death. Immediate treatment is with pure oxygen. The affected person is then moved into a hyperbaric chamber. A hyperbaric chamber is a reinforced, closed chamber that is pressurized to greater than atmospheric pressure.

1 Overview of Anatomy and Physiology Human anatomy is the scientific study of the body’s structures. In the past, anatomy has primarily been studied via observing injuries, and later by the dissection of anatomical structures of cadavers, but in the past century, computer-assisted imaging techniques have allowed clinicians to look inside the living body. Human physiology is the scientific study of the chemistry and physics of the structures of the body. Physiology explains how the structures of the body work together to maintain life.

Introduction Chapter Objectives After studying this chapter, you will be able to: • • • • • • Describe the fundamental composition of matter Identify the three subatomic particles Identify the four most abundant elements in the body Explain the relationship between an atom’s number of electrons and its relative stability Distinguish between ionic bonds, covalent bonds, and hydrogen bonds Explain how energy is invested, stored, and released via chemical reactions, particularly those reactions that are critical to life 44 Chapter 2 | The Chemical Level of Organization • Explain the importance of the inorganic compounds that contribute to life, such as water, salts, acids, and bases • Compare and contrast the four important classes of organic (carbon-based) compounds—proteins, carbohydrates, lipids and nucleic acids—according to their composition and functional importance to human life The smallest, most fundamental material components of the human body are basic chemical elements.
