Introduction l.jpg

Introduction

  • Physiology: Study of the function and relationship of the various organ systems


The body l.jpg

Made of 40% solid particles and 60% H2O

The percentage of H2O varies with age, sex

Babies: up to 80% H2O

Older, slim person: 60%

The body

Figure 1.4


Fluid compartments l.jpg

2/3 cell fluid (intracellular fluid=ICF)

1/3 fluid outside the cell  extracellular fluid (ECF)

- 80% interstitial fluid (IF)

- 20% circulating fluid –

mostly plasma + CSF

+ eye and ear fluid

Fluid compartments

Homeostasis l.jpg

Homeostasis

  • The process of maintaining a constant internal environment despite changing external environment

  • Components:

    - Sensors

    - Integrating center

    - Effectors


Regulatory mechanisms l.jpg

Regulatory mechanisms:

  • Negative feedback: the most common

  • Positive feedback: rare (ex:blood coagulation, parturition)

  • Most parameters controlling body function (heart rate, breathing rate, blood pressure, blood glucose..) are maintained within a narrow range


Negative feedback l.jpg

If a parameter value increases, body mechanisms works to bring the value down, within normal range

The most common mechanism

Negative feedback


Positive feedback l.jpg

As a value increases, the body reacts to increase the value further

Example: parturition (labor and delivery) and blood clotting

Positive feedback


Regulation of body temperature l.jpg

Body heat is a by-product of muscle contraction

Heat losses or gains are due to:

- convection: transfer of energy through moving gases or liquids

- conduction: transfer of heat energy between objects in direct contact

- radiation: transfer of energy through electromagnetic waves

- evaporation: loss of heat when water is evaporating

Regulation of body temperature


Body temperature regulation normal body temperature 37 o c 98 6 o f l.jpg

If external temperature is high body reacts to cool down

skin: flush appearance due to blood vessel dilation, sweating

Heart rate increases

Respiratory rate increases

If external temperature is low  body reacts to warm up

skin: pale appearance due to blood vessel constriction, goose bumps

Heart rate decreases

Respiratory rate decreases

Muscle shivering

Body temperature regulation Normal body temperature = 37oC = 98.6oF

Mechanism of regulation l.jpg

Mechanism of regulation

  • Temperature receptors in the skin and deep within the body send temperature information to the temperature integrating center in the hypothalamus

  • The integrating center makes a decision about the adjustments to be made

  • Effectors in charge of adjusting the temperature are activated


If body temperature is too cold l.jpg

If body temperature is too cold:


Body temperature regulation normal body temperature 37 o c 98 6 o f15 l.jpg

If external temperature is high body reacts to cool down

skin: flush appearance due to blood vessel dilation, sweating

Heart rate increases

Respiratory rate increases

Body temperature regulation Normal body temperature = 37oC = 98.6oF


Pathology of temperature regulation heat exhaustion l.jpg

A person is working in the sun, is hot, sweat and drinks large amount of water

The electrolytes (salts) lost through sweating are not replaced  risk of seizures, loss of consciousness and death

Treatment: give fluids and electrolytes (ex: gatorade)

Pathology of temperature regulation: heat exhaustion


Pathology of temperature regulation heat stroke l.jpg

A person is working in the sun, is hot. The sun increases body and especially brain temperature

If the brain temperature reaches too high level, the brain becomes unable to react  sweating stops

Body temperature reach very high levels  the person dies

Pathology of temperature regulation: heat stroke


So what is fever l.jpg

Body temperature can be as high as 35-36oC (105-106oF), despite external temperatures being much cooler.

Pathogens invade the body  macrophages fight against the infection and in the process secrete a special compound, a pyrogen.

A pyrogen has the ability to reset the body’s internal temperature to a higher level

When it does, the body reacts to increase its temperature  shivering, …  fever

When the body has won its battle against the pathogen, the macrophages no longer secrete pyrogen.

However, the body temperature is high  the temperature center in the hypothalamus direct the body to cool down  sweating ….

So what is fever?
