lymphatic, respiratory, digestive, urinary, reproductive systems

Lymphatic System relationship with cardiovascular system system of vessels that circulates body fluids from tissues back into the circulatory system
edema collection/accumulation of body fluids in the tissues, causes swelling, pain, shortness of breath
lymphatic fluid/lymph mostly water; may contain ions, gasses, nutrient molecules, waste products, secretions, proteins, bacteria, viruses, parasites, cancer cells
lymphatic capillaries surround and entwine with blood capillaries; movement of materials is into lymph capillaries; porous, thin-walls lined with endothelium
collecting vessels similar in anatomy to small veins; walls have three layers - 1) simple squamous, 2) smooth muscle, 3) connective tissue; help move lymph through the lymphatic system to the vena cava
trunks and ducts very large lymph vessels. Trunks are found in these regions: lumbar, intestinal, intercostal, bronchomediastinal, subclavian, jugular. Collecting ducts are the largest lymph vessels. Thoracic Duct and Right Lymphatic Duct are two major ones.
thoracic duct Lymph Collecting Duct, located along the midline of the body, empties into the left subclavian
right lymphatic duct Lymph Collecting Duct, located to the right of the vertebral column, empties into the right subclavian
lymph nodes (nodules) about 450, located in groups or chains; filters lymph; composed of reticular connective tissue, lymphocytes and macrophages; plays a role in immune response. Locations: cervical, axillary, mammary, inguinal, abdominal, pelvic, thoracic, popliteal.
flow of lymph blood capillaries -> lymph capillaries -> collecting ducts -> subclavian veins
associated lymphatic organs tonsils, thymus, spleen, aggregated lymphoid nodules in the intestine, appendix
MALT Mucosa Associated Lymphatic Tissue. groups of cells that are not enclosed, not organs; found in the inner lining of many hollow organs. Example - "Peyer's Patches" in the large intestine
lymphatic nodules section of lymph node circular clusters of white blood cells (lymphocytes and macrophages)
appendix attached to the cecum, --------
tonsils lymphatic nodules located in the pharynx
thymus superior to the heart, also an endocrine gland, secretes thymosin, involved in maturation of T-lymphocytes
spleen acts similar to a lymph node, acts as a filter for the blood by removing and recycling old and damaged red blood cells; serves as a blood reservoir, composed primarily of reticular connective tissue
lymphoma cancer of lymphocytes; solid tumors often form in the lymph nodes
lymphatic system's role in defense against infection Lymphocytes carry out specific immune responses; many different types of pathogens (bacteria, viruses, prions, etc.) are removed from the body via the lymphatic system
mechanical barriers skin, mucus, stomach acid, cilia, hair
reticuloendothelial system macrophages. phagocytic cells that "wander" throughout the tissues seeking out general bacteria and viruses; also includes neutrophils and eosinophils from the blood
macrophages phagocytic cells
T-lymphocytes (cell-mediated immunity) found in lymph nodes, carry out cell-mediated immunity by finding and destroying proteins identified by macrophages, plus the cell that the protein is attached to; typically involved wtih immune response to bacteria or protozoan invasions
B-lymphocytes found in lymphatic tissue; produce antibodies that recognize certain proteins and bind to them, deactivating them and causing viral pathogens to "clump" into useless groups of cells; typically involved with viral infections or allergic reactions
humoral immunity B-lymphocytes produce antibodies that bind to viral proteins and render the virus inactive
antibodies very complex proteins that recognize viral proteins, bind to them and inactivate them
