Tendons- These attach muscle to bone. 5. Joints- These arewhere two bones interconnect. Circulatory 1. Artery- one of thetubular vessels that conveys blood from the heart to the tissues ofthe body.
2. Capillary- one of the minute blood vessels that form theconnection between the arteries and the veins. 3. Veins- are blood vessels that return blood to theheart from other parts of the body. 4. Heart- pump blood out toevery part of your body. 5. Lungs- take care of both jobs.
Carbon dioxide from your blood goes into your lungs. Your lungs get rid of thecarbon dioxide when you breathe out. Hematologic 1.Erythrocytes contain the pigment hemoglobin, which imparts the red color toblood, and transport oxygen and carbon dioxide to and from the tissues. 2. Leukocytes(white blood cells defend the body against microorganisms that causeinfection and remove debris, including dead or injured cells of all kinds 3.
Granulocytes have many membrane-bound granules intheir cytoplasm. These granules contain enzymes capable of killingmicroorganisms and catabolizing debris ingested during phagocytosis. 4. Eosinophil secondary granules contain toxic chemicals(e.g.
, major basic protein, eosinophil cationic protein, eosinophil peroxidase,eosinophil-derived neurotoxin) that are highly destructive to parasites andviruses. 5. lymphocytestransiently circulate in the blood and eventually reside in secondary lymphoidtissues as mature T cells, B cells, or plasma cells. Gastrointestinal 1. Stomach-an empty organ, that holds food while it is being mixed with enzymes thatcontinue the process of breaking down food into a usable form.
2. Smallintestine- a long muscular tube that breaks down food using enzymes released bythe pancreas and bile from the liver. 3. Esophagus- Located in your throat near your trachea(windpipe), the esophagus receives food from your mouth when you swallow.
4. Thepancreas- secretes digestive enzymes into the duodenum, the first segment ofthe small intestine. These enzymes break down protein, fats, and carbohydrates. 5. Thegallbladder- stores and concentrates bile, and then releases it into theduodenum to help absorb and digest fats.
Respiratory 1.Mouth- isthe secondary external opening for the respiratory tract. 2. Pharynx-also known as the throat, is a muscular funnel 3. Larynx- also known as the voice box, is a short section of the airway thatconnects the laryngopharynx and the trachea.
4.Trachea, or windpipe, is a 5-inch long tube made of C-shaped hyaline cartilagerings that allows air to pass through the neck and into the thorax. 5. Lungs- is a pair of large,spongy organs found in the thorax lateral to the heart and superior to thediaphragm. Endocrine 1.
Hypothalamus- is aportion of the brain that contains a number of small nuclei with a varietyof functions. 2.Pituitary Gland- It is partof the endocrine system and produces critical hormones 3.Tyroid- Controlhormones essential to your metabolism 4. Parathyroid Glands-Control the body’s calcium levels 5. Adrenal Glands- Producehormones that help the body control blood sugar which also helps to burn proteinand fat.
Immune 1.Tonsils- Make antibodies. 2.Thymus- Helps tonsils make antibodies. 3. Spleen- Filters theblood by removing old or damaged blood cells and platelets and helps the immunesystem by destroying bacteria 4.Lymph nodes- throughout the body carries lymph fluid, nutrients,and waste material between the body tissues and the bloodstream.
5. Vessels-Throughout the body carries lymph fluid, nutrients,and waste material between the body tissues and the bloodstream. Terms to define. Superior- used to refer to what is above something. Inferior- below or toward the feet. Anterior- something is towards the front of thebody.
Posterior- something is towards the back of thebody. Medial- something that is closer to the midline Lateral- somethingthat is farther away from the midline Proximal- Towardthe beginning, the nearer of two (or more) items. Distal- Situatedaway from the center of the body, or from the point of origin Tendons- a cordor band of strong white fibrous tissue that connects a muscle to a bone. Ligaments- atough band of tissue that serves to connect the articular extremities of bonesor to support or retain an organ in place Joints- Thearea where two bones are attached for the purpose of permitting body parts tomove.
Origin- thepoint at which something begins or rises or from which it derives. Insertion- Thepart of a muscle by which it is attached to the part to be moved — compareorigin Motor Unit Recruitment- refers to the activation of additional motor units to accomplish an increase incontractile strength in a muscle. Red Fibers- Amuscle in which small dark fibers predominateand in which myoglobin and mitochondria are abundant. White Fibers- White mammalianmuscle fibers; greater in diameter than red fibers they have less myoglobin,sarcoplasm, and mitochondria, and contract more quickly Glucose- Asimple sugar that is an important energy source in living organisms and is acomponent of many carbohydrates. Adipose- usedfor the storage of fat. Human Physiology- is the science of the mechanical, physical, and biochemical functions ofnormal humans or human tissues or organs. Pathophysiology- Thedisordered physiological processes associated with disease or injury. More terms to define.
What do these contribute to overallhealth? Be complete. Arteries- anyof the muscular-walled tubes forming part of the circulation system by whichblood (mainly that which has been oxygenated) is conveyed from the heart to allparts of the body. Veins- any ofthe tubes forming part of the blood circulation system of the body, carrying inmost cases oxygen-depleted blood toward the heart.

Kidneys and bladder- The kidneys andurinary tract filter and eliminate these waste substances from our blood. Antibodies and lymph nodes- Bcells produce antibodies. Each antibody has a singlepredetermined target. These antigen-presenting cells enter the lymph systemand then lymph nodes. Mouth, esophagus, stomach- Inthe mouth, saliva acts to start to break down carbohydratesthanks to an enzyme called amylase.
The esophagus is a tube,controlled by muscles and autonomic nerves that help food to travel from themouth to the stomach. Lactic acid- a colorless syrupy organic acid formed in sourmilk and produced in the muscle tissues during strenuous exercise. Platelets and clotting- Platelets, also called thrombocytes,which are a component of blood whose function is to stop bleeding by clumpingand clotting blood vessel injuries. Skull- the skeleton of the head.
Sternum- a plate of bone forming the middle of the anterior wall of the thorax and articulating with the clavicles and the cartilages of thefirst seven ribs. Rib-paired bones, 12 on either side, extending from the thoracic vertebrae toward the median line on the ventralaspect of the trunk pelvic girdle- structureformed by the pelvis, providing attachment for the hind limbs or pelvic fins. Pituitary, thyroid and adrenals- Stimulation of the pituitary by the hypothalamus will signal the adrenal glandsto release the stress-buffering hormone, cortisol, and the thyroid torelease T4 Brain and spinal cord- The brain functionsto receive nerve impulses from the spinal cord. The spinal cord contains the nerves that carry messages between the brain andthe body.
