Debonaire review 2

Debonaire anatomical locations and positions

Superior: above, in and updward direction, toward the head Eg: The HEAD is SUPERIOR to the neck of the body.
Inferior: Below or in a downward direction; more toward the feet or tail Eg: The FEET are INFERIOR to the head of the body.
Anterior (ventral): In front of or before, the front side of the body Eg: The BREAST are located on the ANTERIOR side of the body.
Posterior (dorsal): Toward the back, back side of the body Eg:The nape is the BACK of the neck and is located on the POSTERIOR side of the body
Cephalic: pertaining to the head; superior in position Eg:A CEPHALIC presentation is one in which any part of the HEAD of the fetus is presented during delivery.
Caudal: Pertaining to the tail; inferior in position Eg: The CAUDA EQUINA (horse's tail) is a bundle of spinal nerves below the END of the spinal cord.
Medial: Nearest the midline or middle Eg: the umbilicus is a depressed point in the Medial area of the ABDOMEN.
Lateral: to the side, away from the middle Eg: In the anatomical position, the arm is located on the LATERAL side of the body.
Proximal: Nearest the point of attachment or near the beginning of a structure Eg: The proximal end of the humerus joins with part of the shoulder bone.
Distal: Away from the point of attachment or far from the beginning of a structure Eg: The distal end of the humerus joins with part of the elbow.
Midsagittal plane Vertically divides the body as it passes through the midline to form a right & left half.
Transverse (horizontal plane) Any plane that divides the body into Superior & INFERIOR portions.
Coronal (frontal plane) divided the body into Anterior & Posterior portions
Cavity: a hollow space containing body organs
Thoracic cavity: the area of the chest containg the heart and lungs
Abdominal cavity: space below the diaphram (belly); contains the stomach, intestines, and other organs of digestion
Pelvic cavity: Pelvic area; contains the organs of reproduction and elimination
Abdominopelvic Cavity is the combination of the abdominal and pelvic cavities.
name the organ systems intgumentary, digestive, skelatal, cardiovascular, muscular, blood & lymphatic, urinary, endocrine, respiratory, nervous, reproductive
name the two distinct cavities located in the dorsal cavity: Cranial, Spinal
List the three distinct cavities that are located in the ventral cavity: thoracic, pelvic, abdominal
Cilia Hairlike process that project from epithelial cells
Define anatomy: Study of the structure of an organism such as a human
Human genome Complete set of genes and chromosomes
Somatotrophic pertaining to the stimulation of body growth
Ectomorph Slender physical body form
Anatomical location & positions has four primary reference systems: Direction, Planes, Cavities, Structural unit
Organs make up structure, different tissue that serve the body like: brain, skin, heart
11 systems are a group of different organs for common purpose Integumentary, skeletal system, muscular, nervous, endocrine, cardiovascular, respiratory, urinary, reproductive system, digestive,
Integumentary system Protects the membrane regulates temperature and also a sensory receptor.
Skeletal system Framework and movement protects the shape give support to the body also stores minerals
Muscles system produce movement, maintain posture, & produce heat
Nervous system control all body parts, responsible for commucnication
Endocrine system Produce hormone, it also provides for communication & control over various parts of the body
Cardiovascular system: transports, oxygen, carbon dioxide, delivers nutrients & hormones to the body, also removes body waste
Respiratory system: It's distribution & elimination
Urinary system: It distributes eliminates urine or waste from the kidney, maintains electrolytes & acid base & balance
