INTRODUCTIONIn health and social care sector, physiology helps to understand the structured functioningof living things. The physiological principles are basically related to the human body whichdefines that it is structured of various range of chemicals. In this sector, the science of thestructure of human body are related to human anatomy. This anatomy is categorized in two partssuch as macroscopic deals with body parts and microscopic deals with cellular structure ofhuman body. The present report helps to understand the concept about physiological principlesfor health and social care. The present report will help to understand the structure and function ofbody system and further it also describes that how they work together to maintain life processes.It also helps to understand the importance of routine data and care planning.TASK 11.1 Main features and functions of 3 system along with diagramsIn humans to carry out the daily activities, their body requires the various types ofsystems like skeletal, nervous, digestive and respiratory system etc. All these systems havedifferent features and functions in human body which are defined below:Nervous system- This system coordinates the both voluntary such as consciousmovements and involuntary actions like breathing. In humans, nervous system helps totransmit the signals from and to the different body parts of body. This system includestwo major parts such as peripheral and central nervous system. I this context, peripheralsystem includes nerves and central nervous system includes spinal cord and brains(Johnson, 2012).1
Muscular system- In humans, muscular system helps to support body movements andthis system includes skeletal muscles about approx 600-700. In body, there are basicallythree types of major muscles such as cardiac, smooth and skeletal muscles. The smoothmuscles are presented in organs, skeletal muscles connects the bones and cardiac muscleshelps in pumping the blood because it is present in heart (Chaturvedi and Singh, 2013).2Illustration1: Nervous System(Source:Nervous System,2011)
