Anatomy Study Stack 1-Week 5

Axial skeleton The 80 bones of the head, neck, and torso; composed of 74 bones that form the upright axis of the body and six tiny middle ear bones
Appendicular skeleton The 126 bones that form the appendages to the axial skeleton; the upper and lower extremities
Skull Made up of 28 bones in two major divisions: cranial bones and facial bones
Upper Extremity Consists of the bones of the shoulder girdle, upper and lower parts of the arm, wrist, and hand
Lower Extremity Consists of the bones of the hip, thigh, leg, ankle, and foot
Fibrous joints (synarthroses) Bones of joints fit together closely, thereby allowing little or no movement
Cartilaginous joints (amphiarthroses) Bones of joints are joined together by hyaline cartilage or fibrocartilage; allow very little motion
Hinge joints articulating ends of bones form a hinge-shaped unity that allows only flexion and extension
Range of motion (ROM) Assessment used to determine extent of joint injury
Flexion Decreases the angle between bones; bends or folds one part on another
