Title: Introduction%20to%20Anatomy

Introduction to Anatomy
  • anatomy and medicine

Anatomical Terminology
  • Anatomical Position standing erect, facing
    forward, arms at the sides, palm and feet facing

Anatomical Terminology
  • Superior above another body part
  • Inferior below another body part
  • Anterior toward the front
  • Ventral front or belly side
  • Posterior toward the back
  • Dorsal backside
  • Medial near the middle
  • Lateral to one side of the middle
  • Bilateral paired structures
  • Ipsilateral on the same side

Anatomical Terminology
  • Contralateral on the opposite side
  • Proximal close to the point of attachment
  • Distal further from the point of attachment

  • Anatomy the study of the structure of body parts
  • Physiology the study of the function of the body

Characteristics of Living Things
  1. Movement self initiated change in position,
    motion of internal parts
  2. Responsiveness ability to sense changes and
    react to them
  3. Growth increase in body size
  4. Reproduction producing offspring and passing
    genetic material to them
  5. Respiration obtaining oxygen, using it to
    release energy from food and getting rid of
    carbon dioxide

Characteristics of Living Things
  • 6. Digestion chemically breaking down food and
    getting rid of wastes
  • 7. Absorption passage of digested nutrients
    through membranes and into bodily fluids
  • 8. Circulation movement of substances throughout
    the body
  • 9. Assimilation changing absorbed substances
    into different chemicals
  • 10. Excretion removal of waste products

Characteristics of Living Things
  • Metabolism all the chemical changes that occur
    in the body to maintain life
  • Needs
  • Water transports substances and maintains
  • Food provides the body with nutrients
  • Oxygen releases energy from food and drives
  • Heat a form of energy that is a product of
  • Pressure important in breathing and circulation

Characteristics of Living Things
  • Homeostasis the ability of the body to maintain
    a stable, balanced environment
  • Homeostatic controls self-regulating control
    systems in the body that are initiated when
    conditions deviate from normal
  • Receptors detect environmental changes and relay
    the information to the brain
  • Effectors muscles or glands that respond to
    bodily changes
  • Set point what the norm should be

Feedback Loops
  • Positive Feedback Loops increases the action of
    the effectors
  • Example blood begins to clot and more clotting
    factors are produced
  • Negative Feedback Loops decreases the action of
    the effectors
  • Example the body gets cold and starts to shiver
    to heat the body back up so that the effectors
    arent telling the brain it is cold anymore

What is the internal process that happens when we
get cold?
What is the internal process that happens when we
get too hot?
What is the internal process that happens when we
get burnt or cut?
What is the internal process that happens when we
catch a virus?
Levels of organization
Body Organization
  • Axial portion head, neck and trunk
  • Appendicular portion arms and legs
  • Several body cavities and layers of membranes
    lining the cavities
  • A variety of organs and organ systems within the
    body cavities
  • Viscera relating to any or all internal organs

(No Transcript)
Body Organization
  1. Transverse plane divides the body into superior
    and inferior parts
  2. Sagittal plane divides the body into right and
    left halves
  3. Frontal plane divides the body into anterior and
    posterior halves

(No Transcript)
Body Cavities
  • Ventral body cavities
  • Thoracic cavity chest contains heart, lungs,
    trachea and esophagus
  • Abdominal cavity contains digestive organs
  • Pelvic cavity contains bladder and reproductive
  • Diaphragm separates the thoracic and pelvic

Body Cavities
  • Dorsal Body Cavities
  • Cranial cavity contains the brain
  • Vertebral cavity contains the spinal cord

  • Serous membranes two layers of membranes that
    cover organs
  • Parietal membrane forms the outer lining
  • Visceral membrane inner layer covering the
    surface of an organ
  • Serous fluid fluid between the membrane layers
    that provides lubrication

  • Pleural membrane surrounds the lungs
  • Pericardium surrounds the heart
  • Peritoneum surrounds the organs within the
    abdominopelvic cavity

Body Systems
  • Integumentary system skin, hair, nails, sweat
    glands and sebaceous glands
  • Protects
  • Regulates body temperature
  • Skeletal system Bones, ligaments, tendons and
  • supports and moves body parts
  • Produces blood cells and store inorganic salts
  • Muscular System muscles
  • move body parts and maintains posture
  • Produce heat

Body Systems
  • Nervous system brain, spinal cord, nerves and
    sense organs
  • Sends signals
  • Receptors and effectors
  • Endocrine system glands
  • secrete hormones
  • Alters metabolism
  • Cardiovascular system heart, blood and vessels.
  • Transports gases, nutrients, hormones and wastes
  • Transports biochemicals used in metabolism
  • Lymphatic System lymph fluid and vessels, spleen
  • Cleans the blood and defends against disease
  • Removes wastes

Body Systems
  • Digestive System Mouth, esophagus, stomach,
    intestines, gal bladder, pancreas, liver
  • break down food molecules, absorbs nutrients and
    eliminates waste products
  • Produces heat and provides nutrients
  • Respiratory System lungs, trachea, nasal cavity,
  • Gas exchange between the blood and the air
  • Maintains pH balance

Body Systems
  • Urinary System kidneys, ureters, bladder,
  • Remove wastes from blood
  • Maintains water and salt balance
  • Reproductive system female or male reproductive
    organs (internal and external)
  • Transports sperm or egg and nourishes offspring
  • Makes hormones
