  1. Anatomy is...
    study of structure and shape of the body and its parts and their relationships to one another
  2. Physiology is...
    study of how the body and its parts work
  3. The levels of structural organization is...
    atoms, cells, tissue, organs, organ systems, organism
  4. Integumentary system is...
    • -external body covering
    • - location of pain, pressure, receptors, sweat/oil glands etc.
    • - waterproofs the body and protects inside from injury
    • - regulates body temperature
  5. Skeletal System is...
    • -consists of bone and cartilidge
    • - supports the body
    • - provides a base for the muscles to move
    • - creates blood cells
  6. Muscular System is...
    - contract or shorten
  7. Nervous System is...
    • - body's control system
    • - consists of brain, spinal cord, nerves, and sensory receptors
    • - responds to stimuli inside and outside of body (temp. light, sound outside) ( decrease in oxygen, stretching of tissue inside)
    •  
  8. Endocrine System is...
    • - controls body's activites
    • - produces hormones
    • - Examples: pituitary, thyroid, adrenals, and thymus gland 
  9. Cardiovascular System is...
    • - primary organs are heart and blood vessels
    • - carries oxygen and other nutrients to other parts of the body 
    • - pumps blood to other parts of the body
  10. Lymphatic System is...
    • - includes, lymph vessels, lymph nodes, spleen, tonsils etc.
    • - returns leaked fluid back into the body
    • - help clean the blood and fights bacteria
  11. Respiratory System is...
    • -keep the body constantly supplied with oxygen and remove CO2
    • - consists of nose, pharync, larynx, trachea, bronchi, and lungs
  12. Digestive System is...
    • -breaks food down so it can be absorbed
    • - indigestible food expelled out
    • -pathway of food from mouth to anus
  13. Urinary System is...
    • -eliminates liquid wastes
    • -regulates water, electrolytes, and acid-balance in the blood
  14. Male/Female Reproductive System is...
    • - produce offspring
    • - testes: sperm ovaries:eggs 
    • - breasts produce milk
  15. 1.) Necessary Life Functions are..
    • - Maintaining boundries ( allowing protection like skin or membrane)
    • - Movement (activities promoted by muscular system)
    • - Responsiveness (ability to sense and react to stimuli)
    • - Digestion (breaking down and using food for blood)
  16. 2.) Necessary Life Functions are..
    • - Metabolism (chemical reactions within the body)
    • - Excretion (expelling waste)
    • - Reproduction (creating offspring)
    • - Growth (increase in size)
  17. Superior Plane
    • Toward the head
    • - The forehead is superior to the nose
  18. Inferior
    • Away from the head
    • - The navel is inferior to the breastbone
  19. Ventral (anterior)
    • in front of
    • - the breastbone is anterior to the spine
  20. Dorsal (posterior)
    • behind 
    • - the spine is posterior to the spine
  21. Medial 
    • on the inner side
    • - the heart is medial to the arm
  22. Lateral
    • on the outer side
    • - the arm is lateral to the chest
  23. Proximal
    • close to the attachment point
    • - the arm is proximal to the wrist
    • (closer to the a shoulder joint connecting the whole arm)
  24. Distal
    • Farther from the attachment point
    • - the knee is distal to the thigh
  25. Superficial
    • Toward the body surface
    • - the skin is superficial to the skeleton
  26. Deep
    • Away from the surface
