    • 1. Support
    • 2. Protection
    • 3. Movement
    • 4. Storage- fat, minerals, (Ca and P)
    • 5. Blood cell formation - in marrow cavities of certain bones (hematopoiesis)

    Compact bone
  6. Bone composed of small needlelike pieces of bone and lots of open space
    Spongy bone
  7. Bone that is cube shaped and contain mostly spongy bone

    Hyaline cartilage
  11. The formation of bone
  12. Bone-forming cells
  13. Gaint bone-destroying cells in bones, to break down bone and release calcium ions into the blood

    Parathyriod glands
  15. A break that does not penetrate the skin
    Closed (Simple) Fracture
  16. Broken bone that penetrates through the skin

  17. Fracture in which bone breraks into many fragments. Particularly common in the aged, whose bones are more brittle.
  18. Fracture in which bone is crushed. Common in porous bones.
  19. Fracture in which broken bone portion is pressed inward. Typical of skull fracture.
  20. Fracture in which broken bone ends are forced into each other. Commonly occurs when one attempts to break a fall with outstretched arms.
  21. Fracture in which ragged break occurs when exccessive twisting forces are appplied to a bone. Common in sport fractures
  22. Fracture in which bone break incompletely. Common in children, whose bones are more flexible than those of adults
  23. Four steps of bone fracture repair:
    • 1. Hematoma (blood-filled swelling) is formed.
    • 2. Fibrocartilage callus formation
    • 3. Bony callus formation
    • 4. Bone remodeling
