Chapter 6


Student objectives

Student Objectives

  • Define the main functions of the integumentary system and its appendages.

  • Identify combining forms, suffixes, and prefixes related to the integumentary system.

  • Identify several primary and secondary skin lesions.

  • Explain major skin problems caused by exposure.


Student objectives1

Student Objectives

  • Identify diagnostic, symptomatic, and therapeutic terms and procedures related to the integumentary system.

  • Define the abbreviations related to the integumentary system.

  • Explain pharmacology related to the treatment of integumentary disorders.


Functions of the integumentary system

Functions of the Integumentary System

  • skin

    • protects against bacterial invasion

    • reservoir for food and water

    • sensory receptor

    • synthesis of vitamin D

    • regulate body temperature and water

    • prevents dehydration


Epidermis

Epidermis

  • outermost layer

  • epithelium

    • strata or layers

    • keratin (a fibrous protein)

  • no blood vessels or nerve supply in epidermis


Dermis or corium

Dermis or Corium

Living Tissue

capillaries

lymphatics

nerve endings

hair follicles

glands (sebaceous and sweat)


Subcutaneous or hypodermis

Subcutaneous or Hypodermis

  • connective tissue layer

  • specializes in formation of fat

  • adipose or fat cells provide a food reserve and insulation


Appendages of the skin

Appendages of the Skin

  • Hair

  • Glands

  • Nails

  • Breasts


Medical terminology

Hair

  • hair shaft

  • hair follicles

  • papilla

  • alopecia


Glands of the skin

Glands of the Skin

  • sudoriferous

    • sweat glands

    • cool the body

  • sebaceous

    • sebum(oil)

  • ceruminous glands

    • modified sweat glands located in ear canals

    • cerumen


Nails

Nails

  • cuticle

  • lunula


Breasts or mammary glands

Breasts or Mammary Glands

  • Present in both males and females

  • estrogen stimulation causes adipose tissue and increased size

  • progesterone stimulation causes formation of lobules for milk production


Suffixes

Suffixes

  • -cyte

  • -derma

  • -gram

  • -graph

  • -graphy

  • -logist

  • -logy

  • -therapy


Prefixes

Prefixes

  • Epi-

  • hyper-

  • hypo-

Pathology

Pathology

  • Primary Skin Lesions

    • often due to healing process

  • Secondary Skin Lesions

    • result of the primary skin lesions

      • excoriation

      • abrasion

      • contusion

      • laceration

      • ulcers

      • cicatrix

      • keloid


Primary lesions

Primary Lesions

  • macule

  • papule

  • nodule

  • vesicle

  • bulla

  • pustule

  • wheal

  • scales

  • fissure


Burns first degree superficial

Outer Layer of Epidermis

erythema

hyperesthesia

Example: Sunburn

Burns-First DegreeSuperficial


Burns second degree partial thickness

Burns-Second DegreePartial Thickness

  • damages portion of epidermis and dermis

  • vesicles or bullae

  • regeneration can occur if no infection


Burns third degree full thickness

Burns-Third DegreeFull-Thickness

  • involves epidermis and dermis

  • can extend into subcutaneous tissue, bone and muscle

  • cannot heal spontaneously

  • dermatoplasty


Frostbite

Frostbite

  • Local skin destruction

  • Result of freezing

  • Classified according to severity

    • first, second, third


Oncology

Oncology

  • Neoplasm

    • malignant or benign

    • metastsize
