Medical English

Week 3


In week 3 we will

In Week 3, we will:

  • Look at terms describing the structural organisation of the body

  • Identify body cavities and the organs contained within them

  • Study positional and directional terms

  • Work on the pronunciation of these terms

  • Learn more combining forms and their meanings

  • Improve and add to our understanding of (the formation of) medical terms


Structural organization of the body

Structural organization of the body


Cells

Cells

  • Fundamental unit of all living things

  • Metabolise food to release energy and build proteins

  • Are different, specialised to perform individual functions

  • Combining form = cyt/o

Practice: Turn to page 34. Label the parts of a cell.Practice: Turn to page 57. Do exercises A and B.

Cell specialization

Cell specialization

Practice: Turn to page 38. Label the types of cells.


Tissues

Tissues

A group of similar cells working together to do a specific job.

A scientist who studies tissues is a histologist.


Organs

Organs

  • Are composed of several types of tissue

  • Viscera = internal organs

Practice: Turn to page 39. Label the organs above.


Systems

Systems

  • Groups of organs working together to perform complex functions

Planes of the body

Planes of the body

  • Frontal or coronal

    • divides body into anterior and posterior

  • Sagittal or lateral

    • divides body into right and left

  • Transverse, axial or cross-sectional

    • divides body horizontally into upper and lower
