organ physiology auscultation is an example of what type of physiology
anatomical landmarks One uses _____________ ____________ to know complete auscultation (listening to bodily sounds like a heartbeat
medical terminology The kind of terminology that anatomy uses
Terminologic Anatomic sets the standard for medical terminology vocabulary
Greek and Latin Languages that early medical terminology is derived from
anterior/ventral Terms that mean the front side of body
dorsal/posterior Terms that mean the back side of the body
buttocks the term gluteals refers to
distal A term that means moving toward the main trunk of the body is : (for example moving from the elbow toward the shoulder)
proximal A term that means moving further away the main trunk of the body is : (for example moving from the shoulder toward the hand)
medial Means closest to center of the body (For example the heart is ______, or closer to the center of the body than the lungs)
superior term that means moving up the body toward head
inferior term that means moving down the body toward feet
gluteal medical term referring to butt

PET scan imaging to assess metabolic and physiological activity
Ultrasound imaging technology that uses soundwaves
heart visceral pericardium covers this ____________
homeostasis central principle of physiology: OR maintenance of constant internal environment:
contralateral Term meaning opposite side
ipsilater term meaning same side
molecular biology field that has made the most progress over the last 2 decades
anatomy means “cutting open,” that denotes the study of the structure of internal and external features of the body and how they relate to each other
molecular level of organization that is the smallest and simplest
anatomical position feet together, arms and hands at sides, palms facing foward
cephalic or cephalon anatomical term for head
thoracic & abdominopelvic two main divisions of the ventral body cavity
abdominopelvic In what body cavity would you find the liver?
physiology study of how living organisms perform their functions
systemic anatomy study of structures of the cardiovascular system
histology study of the structure of muscle tissue (cells under a microscope)
organ physiology study of the function of the stomach is an example o
chemical levels of organization is the smallest and simplest
autoregulation general mechanism involved in homeostatic regulation occurs when a cell, tissue, organ, or organ system adjusts its activities automatically in response to an environmental stimulus
negative feedback homeostatic regulatory mechanisms involves a response to a stimulus that reverses or negates the stimulus
positive feedback homeostatic mechanism produces a response that enhances or exaggerates a stimulus
cytoskeleton Which of the following functions to give the cell an internal protein framework that is strong and flexible?
mitochondria membranous organelles
cytoplasm the intracellular fluid and forms a medium in which the organelles are suspended=
organ something made of two or more tissues that work together to perform several functions
integumentary system Which organ system protects against environmental hazards, helps regulate body temperature, and provides sensory information?
receptor Which part of the homeostatic regulatory system detects changes in the environment?
negative feedback (ex. regulation of body temp) (positive feedback is rare) What is the body’s primary mechanism of homeostatic regulation?
when the body cannot maintain homeostasis When does disease or illness form?
inferior The mental region is __________ to the nasal region.
lateral The arms are __________ to the sternum.
thoracic The heart is found in which body cavity
Liver Which of the following is NOT found in the mediastinum? Heart, liver, trachea, or esophagus
