|3.||Interpret kidney control and feedback mechanisms, including molecular transport in each nephron segment, in order to forecast fluid, electrolyte and acid-base imbalance;|
|4.||Analyse and report on cardiorespiratory responses to exercise and outline exercise limitation in normal and extreme environments; and|
|5.||Analyse and report on cardiorespiratory and renal data from experimental procedures on human participants in a clear and concise scientific manner;|
