  • When discussing Anatomy & Physiology, it is important to “start small and work your way up”. Molecular and Cellular levels are first, what do you think are the next

    3 levels based on that concept?

Chapter 6

Chapter 6




Upon completing this chapter you will be able to

Upon completing this chapter, you will be able to:

  • Define elements of the human body

  • Understand directional terms and body planes

  • Identify organs of all body systems

  • Compare diseases and disorders related to the body systems

What is the smallest element in the body

What is the smallest element in the body?

  • The CELL!

  • Varies in size, shape, and function

  • They need food, water, and oxygen

  • Basic structures:

    • Cell membrane- outer covering, holds substance inside and maintains shape

    • Nucleus- central portion of each cell. Directs cell’s activities and contains chromosomes (bearers of genes) which are made up of DNA

      • Genes carry inherited traits (eye/hair color, height, diseases and gender)

    • All cells have a nucleus except red blood cells (RBC)= enucleated

    • Cytoplasm surrounds nucleus and performs work (reproduction and movement)

Cell types

Cell Types

  • All cell types are different

  • Their shape / function change to fit specific needs

    • Nerve Cells: have long, thin extensions that transmit nerve impulses over a distance

    • Epithelial Cells: thin, flat, and tightly packed to form protective layer over underlying cells

    • Muscle Cells: slender rods that attach at the ends of structures that they move



  • (Groups of cells that work

    together to perform the same task)

  • There are 4 types

    • Connective Tissue: holds body parts together and connects them such as bones, ligaments, tendons

    • Epithelial Tissue: covers internal and external body surfaces (skin, linings of internal organs)

    • Muscle Tissue: expands and contracts to allow for bodily movement

    • Nervous Tissue: carries messages from all parts of the body to and from the brain and spinal cord

  • What does anatomy and physiology mean to you? What do you think you will gain from this chapter?



  • Groups of tissue that work together to perform a specific function

  • Ex: Kidneys, which maintain water and salt balance in the blood

  • Ex: Stomach, which breaks down food into substances that the circulatory system can transport throughout the body as nourishment for its cells



  • Groups of organs working

    together to perform one of the body’s major functions

  • Systems have separate/distinct functions but rely on one another to perform their tasks

  • Respiratory: consists of lungs & airways.

    • Performs respiration, process which supplies the body with a constant supply of oxygen

  • Cardiovascular: consists of heart & blood vessels

    • Pumps and transports blood throughout the body

Systems cont

Systems Cont…

  • Skeletal: consists of bones.

    • supports & protects the body and is the body’s framework. Without bones, we would be a shapeless mass

  • Muscular: consists of muscles and cartilage

    • Provides bodily movement

  • Nervous: consists of brain, spinal cord, and peripheral nerves

    • Regulates most body activities and sends/receives messages from sensory organs

Systems cont1

Systems Cont…

  • Endocrine: consists of the glands

    • Secretes hormones for the regulation of many of the body’s activities

  • Sensory: consists of the eyes, ears, and parts of other systems

    • Related to the 5 senses

  • Digestive: consists of all organs of digestion, absorption, and elimination of waste

    • Necessary for normal intake of food/water

Systems cont2

Systems Cont…

  • Urinary: consists of the kidneys, ureters, bladder, and urethra

    • Eliminates metabolic waste, helps to maintain acid-base and water-salt balance, helps regulate blood pressure

  • Integumentary: consists of skin, and accessory structures which are hair, nails, sweat glands, & oil glands

    • Skin is largest organ and serves to cover and protect our body

Systems cont3

Systems Cont…

  • Lymphatic and immune: consist of the lymph, glands of the lymphatic system, lymphatic vessels, and nonspecific and specific defenses of the immune system

    • Help protect the body from infection and disease

  • Reproductive: female consists of the ovaries, vagina, fallopian tubes, uterus, and mammary glands/breasts. Male consists of testes, penis, prostate gland, vas deferens, and seminal vesicles

    • Controls reproduction and heredity

  • How does anatomy relate to the profession you think you may be interested in? How will it help you?

Body cavities

Body Cavities

  • There are 2 main cavities

  • Dorsal Cavity: on the back side of the body.

    • Is divided into the cranial cavity which holds the brain and the spinal cavity which holds the spinal cord

  • Ventral Cavity: on front side of body

    • Is separated into 2 parts by a muscle called the diaphragm.

    • Above diaphragm is the thoracic cavity which holds heart, lungs, major blood vessels

    • Below diaphragm is the abdominal cavity which holds the organs of the digestive and urinary systems

    • Bottom portion of abdominal cavity is pelvic cavity which holds the reproductive system

Directional terms

Directional Terms

  • Deep: through the surface (deep cut)

  • Superficial: on or near the surface (scratch)

  • Proximal: near point of attachment to trunk (proximal end of thighbone joins hipbone)

  • Distal: away from the point of attachment to the trunk (distal end of thighbone joins the knee bone)

  • Supine: lying on one’s spine facing upward

  • Prone: lying on one’s stomach facing downward

Planes of the body

Planes of the body

  • 3 imaginary planes divide the body and cut through the body in different sections

  • Sagittal plane: divides the body into 2 parts, right and left (equally: the midsagittal plane)

  • Frontal or coronal plane: divides the body into anterior and posterior

  • Transverse plane: divides body horizontally into a top, or superior part, and a bottom, or inferior part.



Regions of the abdominal cavity

Regions of the Abdominal Cavity

  • Large cavity divided into

    9 regions to describe the

    location of organs,

    injuries, or pain

  • Epigastric Region: The

    area above the stomach

  • Hypochondriac Regions (left/right): 2 regions just below ribs, immediately over the abdomen

  • Umbilical Region: region surrounding the umbilicus (navel)

Regions of the abdominal cavity cont pg 177

Regions of the Abdominal Cavity Cont….. Pg. 177

  • Lumbar regions (left/right): 2 regions near the waist

  • Hypogastric Region: area just below the umbilical region

  • Iliac, or inguinal regions (left/right): 2 regions near the upper portion of the hipbone

It gets easier

It gets EASIER!

  • There is a simpler way using 4 quadrants

  • Right upper quadrant (RUQ): On right anterior side, contains part of liver, the gallbladder, and parts of the pancreas and intestinal tract

  • Right lower quadrant (RLQ): On right anterior side, contains appendix, parts of intestines, reproductive organs in female, and urinary tract

The last 2 quadrants

The last 2 quadrants…..

  • Left upper quadrant (LUQ): On left anterior side, contains stomach, spleen, parts of liver, pancreas, and intestines

  • Left lower quadrant (LLQ): On left anterior side, contains parts of intestines, reproductive organs in female, and urinary tract

  • If you had to live the remainder of your life without 2 body systems, what would they be and why?

What is vital for life

What is vital for life?

  • Our cells need oxygen to live, respiratory system supplies oxygen, cardiovascular system carries the oxygen through the blood to cells

  • Always check for open airway/breathing when treating anyone (esp. emergency)

  • Next check for circulation (i.e. cardiovascular system)

  • Respiratory and cardiovascular systems are VITAL FOR LIFE!! (most responsible for keeping us alive!)

Respiratory system

Respiratory System

  • Consist of:

  • Lungs- main organ of system

  • Provides oxygen and eliminates carbon dioxide

  • Outside of lungs is a moist, double layer of membrane called the “pleura”/ “pleurae”

  • Outer layer of membrane: Parietal pleura

  • Inner layer of membrane: Visceral pleura

  • Both layers make lung movement easier by protecting lungs and providing moisture

  • Space between the 2 pleura: pleural cavity

Respiratory cont

Respiratory cont…..

  • Right lung (larger lung) has 3 lobes

  • Left lung has 2 lobes

  • We can live without one or more lobes (even without an entire lung)

  • Respiratory Tract: system of passageways through which air moves in and out of the lungs

  • Muscles: that move air in/out of lungs

  • The system performs 2 major tasks:

    • External respiration (breathing) air exchange between body and outside environment

    • Internal respiration: bringing oxygen to cells /removing carbon dioxide from cells

External respiration

External Respiration

  • Inspiration, or inhalation,

    brings air into the mouth or nose.

  • Nose is divided into 2 nasal cavities by a piece of cartilage (nasal septum)

  • Air passes through cavities and sinuses, gets warmed by blood in mucous membranes.

  • Small hairs (cilia) filter out foreign bodies

Ex resp the throat

Ex. Resp (The Throat)

  • Air reaches the throat, or pharynx, a passageway for both air and food that is divided into 3 sections

  • 1. Nasopharynx: lies above soft palate which is a flexible muscular sheet that separates nasopharynx from rest of pharynx

    • Contains pharyngeal tonsils (adenoids) which aid in body’s immune defense

Ex resp the throat1

Ex. Resp (The Throat)

  • 2. Oropharynx, back portion of mouth, contains the palatine tonsils

    • Made up of lymphatic tissue (immune system)

    • Part of mechanism that triggers swallowing

  • 3. Laryngopharynx, bottom section of pharynx

    • Point where respiratory tract divides into the esophagus and larynx.

External respiration cont

External Respiration cont….

  • Esophagus

  • - passageway for food (digestive system)

  • - Epiglottis (movable flap of cartilage covering larynx opening, glottis) prevents food from going into the larynx

  • Aspiration: swallowing & inhaling simultaneously pulling food into larynx

    • Could cause choking and need Heimlich

  • Larynx (voice box)

External respiration cont1

External Respiration cont…

  • Larynx, or voice box, is place from which air passes to the trachea or windpipe.

  • Air goes into larynx to form sounds of speech and singing

  • Contains vocal chords (size/thickness determine pitch)

  • Trachea, or windpipe, is a tube that connects larynx to right & left bronchi (both contain cartilage and mucous glands)

  • Bronchi are passageways through which air enters both lungs (get smaller as they branch out, smallest are bronchioles

Internal respiration

Internal Respiration

  • Structures inside lungs resemble upside-down trees with smaller branches

  • At end of bronchiole is a cluster of air sacs, alveoli

  • Alveoli: one-celled, thin-walled and connect to small blood vessels/capillaries in lungs

  • Oxygen is exchanged from alveoli into bloodstream via capillaries

  • Carbon dioxide is sent from capillaries into alveoli

  • Oxygen then goes to body’s cells

Internal respiration cont

Internal Respiration cont

  • Muscles for breathing: Diaphragm & Intercostal Muscles

  • Muscular contractions enlarge the volume of the thoracic cavity during inspiration and decrease volume when they relax during expiration

  • Diaphragm lowers and intercostals pull ribs upward and outward when they contract to enlarge thoracic cavity

Diseases disorders of respiratory system

Diseases/disorders of respiratory system

  • Respiratory system is site of many inflammations, disorders, and infections

  • Bronchitis, Asthma, Emphysema, Chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases (COPD)

  • Hemoptysis (coughing up blood), Lung Cancer, Upper Respiratory Infection (URI), Epistaxis (nosebleeds), Pneumonia

  • Tuberculosis, Anthracosis (black lung), Pleurisy, Influenza, and many breathing disorders

Cardiovascular system

Cardiovascular System

  • Responsible for circulation of blood

  • Heart: average adult’s is size of fist and lies in thoracic cavity between lungs (2/3 lies on left side)

  • Pericardium: is a protective sac covering heart and has 2 layers (visceral/inner layer and parietal/outer portion)

  • Heart has 3 layers of tissue. Outer most is epicardium, middle layer is myocardium, inner layer is endocardium which forms lining for chambers and valves of heart

Cardiovascular system cont

Cardiovascular System cont

  • Parts of the heart – right and left sides, each side has 2 chambers (upper chambers are atriums, lower chambers are ventricles)

  • R & L sides are separated by a partition called a septum

Cardiovascular system cont1

Cardiovascular System cont

  • Blood Flow: flows in only one direction through the chambers of the heart with flow regulated by valves

  • Arteries carry blood away from heart and veins carry blood toward the heart

  • Valves of Heart: control blood flow, left valve between chambers is the bicuspid, right valve is tricuspid

  • Cardiac Conduction System: contained in conductive tissue and controls the electrical impulses that cause the heart to contract

Cardiovascular system cont2

Cardiovascular System cont

  • Circulation: arteries and veins are the vessels that carry blood to and from heart and lungs and to and from heart to rest of body

  • 3 types of circulation:

    • Coronary

    • Pulmonary

    • Systemic

  • Coronary Circulation: circulation of blood within the heart

    • Coronary arteries branch off aorta (main artery through which blood exits the heart) to supply blood to heart muscle

Cardiovascular system cont3

Cardiovascular System cont

  • Pulmonary Circulation: flow of blood between heart and lungs

    • Pulmonary arteries carry blood low in oxygen from R ventricle to lungs to get oxygen (away)

    • Oxygen rich blood flows from lungs to L atrium through pulmonary veins (to)

  • Systemic Circulation: flow of blood between heart and cells

    • Heart pumps O-rich blood through major arteries to cells (carotid, femoral)

    • Arteries lead to arterioles (smaller vessels) which divide into narrow vessels/capillaries

    • Blood travels back to heart through venules (small branches of veins) and veins

    • Upper body through Superior Vena Cava, lower through Inferior Vena Cava

Cardiovascular system cont4

Cardiovascular System cont

  • Blood: a complex mixture of cells, water, and various proteins and sugars

    • Sends life sustaining nutrients, oxygen, and hormones to body

    • Removes waste products from cells to prevent toxic buildup and regulates body temp

  • A thick liquid. Fluid part is plasma which is clear and consists of water, proteins, salts, nutrients, vitamins, and hormones

  • Cells or solids make up 45% and consists of Erythrocytes (red blood cells/RBCs), Leukocytes (white blood cells/WBCs), Thrombocytes (platelets)

Cardiovascular system cont5

Cardiovascular System cont

  • Blood types

  • 4 types of human blood groups

  • O, A, B, AB

  • Positive or negative element known as the Rh factor first found in Rhesus monkeys

  • RH factor is a type of antigen (causes body to produce antibodies

Cardiovascular system cont6

Cardiovascular System cont

  • Diseases & Disorders of the Cardiovascular System:

  • Hypertension (high blood pressure), Stroke (blood clot blocks blood flow), Arteriosclerosis (hardening of arteries), Aneurysm (disease/ birth defect/ trauma weakens artery wall)

  • Coronary Artery disease (CAD- narrowing of coronary arteries), Myocardial infarction (heart attack), Congestive heart failure (CHF- heart cannot pump as usual), Anemia (lack of O in RBCs), Hemophilia (excessive bleeding), Leukemia (abnormal increase in WBC)

Skeletal system

Skeletal System

  • Skeletal and muscular systems form framework that holds body together, allows movement, and protects/supports all internal organs

  • Born with 350 bones! Some fuse, a mature adult has 206

  • Skeleton consists of bones and joints which also serve as levers to lift and move while also storing calcium
