Bones tfrese

Pectoral Girdle, Arm, and Hand Bones

How many Thoracic vertebrae are there? 12
How many Lumbar vertebrae are there? 5
Where does the head of the humerus articulate? Glenoid Cavity
This provides attachment points for the deltoid and trapezius muscles. Acromion Process
This is the point of a muscle that attaches to the non-moving bone. Origin point
This is the point of a muscle that attaches to the moving bone. Insertion point
This means: closer to the imaginary center line. Proximal
This means: further from the imaginary center line. Distal
This allows for the attachment of the pectorals mini or and coracobrachialis and the short head of the biceps brachi. Corocoid process
This articulates with the Glenoid Cavity of the scapula. The Head of the Humerus
This articulates with the menubriam. Sternal end of the clavicle
This allows for attachemnt of the ribs to the sternum. Costal cartilage
This articulates with the acromion process of the scapula. Acromian end of the clavicle
This separates the scapula into inferior and superior portions. The Spine of the Scapula
Name the three different types of phalanges in order from the metacarpals. Proximal, Middle, and Distal.
This articulates with the lateral head of the radius (important for wrist movement) Scaphoid Carpal
This is the only carpal to articulate with two metacarpals. Hamate Carpal
This articulates with the medial head of the radius (frequently dislocated) Lunate Carpal
This articulates with the middle metacarpal. Capitate Carpal
This articulates with the styloid process of the ulna (smallest bone of the hand) and is contained within a tendon. Pisiform Carpal (Pisum is Latin for pea)
This articulates with the head of the ulna. Triquetrum
This articulates with the metacarpal of the index finger. Trapezoid.
This articulates with the metacarpal of the thumb. Trapezium.
Name the order of the carpal bones of the hand using the mnemonic device How Can That There Platypus Take Long Snoozes? Hamate, Capitate, Trapezoid, Trapezium, Pisiform, Triquetrum, Lunate, Scaphoid.
This is the position of the palms of the hand facing downward. Pronation
This is the position of the palms of the hand facing upward. Supination
This is the attachment for the supraspinatus, infraspinatus, teres minor, and Triceps lateral head. Greater tubercle
This receives the Olecranon of the ulna when the arm is extended. Olecranon Fossa
This provides attachment of subscapularis. Lesser Tubercle
This allows for the long head of the bicep's tendon to ride in it. inter tubercular groove (or Bicipital groove)
This provides attachment for the deltoid muscle. Deltoid tuberosity
This is a depression for the coronoid process of the ulna. Coronoid Fossa
This gives an attachment for the ulner collateral ligament, pronator teres, and flexer muscles of the forearm. Medial epicondyle
This Artciulates with the trochlea of the humerus. Trochlear notch
This is received by the coronoid foes of the humerus. Coronoid process
This articulates with the radial notch of the ulna. This allows for rotations movement of pronation and supination. Head of radius
Insertion of the bicep's brachitendon. Posterior portion of the radial tuberosity (rough)
The bursa is located between the brachia tendon and the bone. Anterior portion of the radial tuberosity (smooth)
Fluid filled sack used for lubrication. Bursa
Bony prominence felt on elbow. Olecrenon Process
This allows the radius to articulate with the ulna for supination and pronation. radial notch of the ulna
This allows for the attachment of the brachialis. Ulna Tuberosity
This allows for the rotation of radius around the ulna during supination and pronation. Head of the ulna
This allows for attachment of the ulnar collateral ligament of the wrist. Styloid process of the ulna
The tendon of the brachia radial attaches to the point of the styloid process. Radial collateral ligament of the wrist attaches to the point of this. Styloid process of the ulna
This occurs when the scaphoid bone gets compressed into the styloid process and breaks off the tip.. Chauffeur's fracture
