True or False? One of the skin's functions involves the regulation of body temperature.
True or False? The dermis of the skin is composed of loose connective tissue and adipose tissue.
True or False? The epidermis is made up of layers of flat cells containing the waterproof protein, keratin.
Functions in the movement of the limbs, head and trunk.
Found in stomach and arteries; moves substances through the lumen of these organs
Found in heart muscle.
When the ventricles contract, blood is prevented from backing up into the atria by the:
The "pacemaker" of the electrical conduction system of the heart is the:
Deoxygenated blood (low in oxygen) is found in the:
left pulmonary arteries
The first heart sound (lub) is caused by vibrations occuring when the __________ valves close during ventricular ____________ .
The accumulation of soft masses of fatty material beneath the inner lining of arteries is a condition known as ____________ and may lead to a potentially fatal ___________ .
