  1. Homeostasis
    ability to maintain a relatively constant internal environment in the body
  2. Two mechanisms for maintaing homeostasis
    • Negative feed back loop
    • *immediately reverses the situation to restore homeostasis
    • ^ ex. blood pressure or body temp
    • Positive feed back loop
    • *must first intensify the situation to restore homeostasis
    • ^ ex. child birth
  3. Feed back loops
    Keep the body aware of any changes and also attemps to correct the situation to restore homeostasis
  4. Factors involved in a feed back loop
    • Normal controlled condition
    • Receptor
    • Control Center
    • Effector
  5. Molecules
    • are made of an element that retian the elements physical and chemical properties.
    • These bond together to form molecules.
  6. Compounds
    are also made of atoms that are bonded together but, it must be two or more different atoms
  7. Atoms
    the smallest units of an element that retain the elements physical and chemical properties. These bond together to form molecules.
  8. Subatomic Particles
    protons, neutrons, electrons
  9. Elements
    the basic building blocks of matter that cannot be broken down by chemical means
  10. Matter
    anything that has weight and takes up space
  11. How are cells organized?
    • muscle cell
    • muscle tissue
    • organ
    • organ system organism
  12. Anatomy from the patients perspective
    ALWAYS there left and right NOT yours!
  13. Superior
  14. Inferior
  15. Ventral
    in front of
  16. Dorsal
  17. Intermediate
    between a more medical and a more lateral structure
  18. Proximal
    closer to the orgin of the body part or the point of attachment of a limb to the body trunk
  19. Distal
    farther from the orgin of a body part or the point of attachment of a limb to the body trunk
  20. Superficial
    Toward or at the body surface
  21. Deep
    Away from the body surface; more internal
  22. Cephalic
    • frontal
    • orbital

    • brachial (arm)
    • antecubital (forearm)
    • carpal (wrist)
  27. Manus (hand)
    • pollex
    • metacarpal
    • palmar
    • digital
  28. Lower limb
    • coxal (hip)
    • femoral (thigh)
    • patellar
    • popliteal
    • crural (leg)
    • Sural (calf)
    • Fibular or peroneal
  29. Pedal (foot)
    • tarsal (ankle)
    • calcaneal
    • metatarsal
    • digital
    • plantar
    • hallux
  30. Cephalic (dorsal view)
    • otic
    • occipital
  31. Back (dorsal)
    • scapular
    • vertebral
    • lumbar
    • sacral
    • gluteal
    • perineal
  32. Sagittal
    Divides bpdy into left and righ parts
  33. Median Plane
    sagittal plane that directly divides the body into equal left and right parts
  34. Parasagittal
    all other sagittal planes
  35. Frontal/Coronal Plane
    Divides body into front and back halfes
  36. Transverse/Horizonal Plane
    Divides body into superior and inferior planes (top half and bottom half)
  37. Oblique Planes
    Diagonal planes or section
  38. Umbilical
    Centermost, near umbilical or navel
  39. Epigastric
    Above the umbilical region
  40. Hypogastric (pubic)
    Below the umbilical
  41. Right/Left iliac (inguinal)
    lateral to the hypogastric region
  42. Right/ left Lumbar
    to the right and left of the umbilical region
  43. Right/ left Hypochondriac
    Lateral to the epigastric region
  44. Structural Organization of the body
    • Chemical
