    enlargement of tissue/organ without change in number of cells

    ex. big muscle builder
  51. atrophy
    decrease in cell size, tissue, organ or entire body. functional deficits are proportional to the degree of atrophy

  55. infections are classified as
    bacterial, viral, fungal, and parasitic. of which infections can be local or systemic
  56. local response
    in region of injury there is increased local blood flow, vascular, neurologic, humoral and cellular responses at the sight of injury occurs.

    characterized by:

    • swelling
    • pain
    • increased temperature
    • redness

  60. types of inflammation
    dependent on duration
    acute or chronic

    • short duration that usually clears without residual scar. onset is rapid and the course to inflammation is relaively short (hours to days).
    • characteristics:
    • swelling(edema)
    • redness
    • warmth/hear(due to increased blood flow and dilation of capillaries
    • pain(pressure on the nerve endings or chemical reaction)

    loss of function(immobility or metabolic changes)


    • acute inflammation which occurs in "bouts"

    • anxiety
  66. alcohol abuse
