  29. What are major types of bone fracture
    Comminuted - bone fragments into 3 or more pieces

    Compression - bone crushed

    Spiral - ragged break when excessive twist

    Epiphyseal - along epiphyseal plate

    Depressed - broken bone goes inward

    Greenstick - bone breaks incompletely. one side breaks, other side bends.
  30. Structural Classification of joints:
    • Fibrous
    • Cartilaginous
    • Synovial
  31. Functional Classification of Joints:
    • Synarthroses (immovable)

    • reinforcing ligaments
    • nerves & blood vessels
  33. 4 subclasses of Synovial joints and examples:
    • Gliding: intercarpal/tarsal/sternal
    • Angular: head towards chest
    • Rotation: hip
    • Special Movements: palm facing front and back
  34. What is another name for a skeletal muscle cell?
    muscle fiber
  35. what is a motor unit?
    One motor neuron and all the muscle fibers it innervates.
  36. what are the two proteins that are chemically attracted to each other within a myofibril:
    • Actin
    • Myosin
  37. Which proteins form cross bridges between thick and thin myofilaments?
    • actin
    • myosin
  38. what is the primary immediate energy source for muscle contraction?
  39. Major events in a muscle contraction
    Latent period: first few milliseconds following stimulation when excitation-contraction coupling occurs : muscle tension increases, no response on myogram.

    Period of Contraction: cross bridges are active from onset to peak of tension development

    Relaxation: re-entry of Ca2+ into SR.
  40. what is muscle tone?
    • muscles always slightly contracted.
    • due to spinal reflexes that alternately activate groups of motor units
  41. Isotonic vs. Isometric Contraction
    • Isotonic:
    • muscle length changes and moves the load

    • Isometric:
    • muscle neither shortens nor lengthens.
    • occurs when muscle attempts to move a load greater than the tension it's able to develop.
  42. Muscle Movements:
    Flexion: decrease angle of joint along sag. plane.

    extension: increase angle of joint along sag. plane.

    Abduction: moving a limb away from midline of body on frontal plane

    Addction: moving a limb towards towards midline

    Circumduction: moving a limb - cone in space.

    Rotation: turning a bone around it's axis
