Presentation Transcript
  • Support: body structure and shape
  • Protection: vital organs surrounded
  • Movement/Anchorage of Muscles
  • Mineral Storage: calcium & phosphorus
  • Blood Formation
formation and structure
Formation and structure
  • Composed of connective tissue called osseous tissue and rich supply of blood vessels and nerves
  • Osseous tissue is composed of : _______________
bone formation
Bone Formation
  • Skeleton fully formed by 2nd month of fetal development (all cartilage)
  • Ossification (replacement of cartilage with bone cells and calcium salts) begins after 8th week of fetal development
  • Childhood and adolescence: ossification ______ bone loss
  • Early adulthood through middle age: ossification ______ bone loss
  • After age 35: bone loss _______ ossification
bone formation ossification
Bone Formation/Ossification

Ossification: replacement of cartilage with bone

  • Cells:
    • osteoblast: produce immature bony tissue that replaces cartilage (the “builders”)
    • osteocyte: nourishes and maintains bone
    • osteoclast: reabsorb or digest bone (the “remodelers”)
    • Osteoblasts and osteoclasts work to deposit and tear down bone throughout life
bone growth
Bone Growth
  • Grow in length at the epiphyseal line
  • Grow in width by addition of bone to the surface
  • Controlled by anterior pituitary (GH)
bone composition
Bone Composition
  • Proper formation of bone depends on sources of calcium, phosphorous, and vitamin D.
  • Vit. D helps with absorption of ________
  • Once Calcium and phosphorous are in the blood osteoblastic activity forms the enzyme Calcium phosphate
  • Calcium phosphate: gives bone its characteristic _________________
  • Collagen: chief organic constituent (protein)
bones cont d
Bones (cont’d.)
  • Bone is the reservoir for calcium storage
  • Calcium necessary for nerve transmittal to muscle When insufficient, it interferes with nerve transmission causing muscle weakness and spasms
  • Ca level maintained by the _______________, which secretes a hormone to release calcium from bone
compact bone cortical
Compact Bone (Cortical)
  • Dense, Stress Bearing
  • Haversian Systems: system of small canals which contain blood vessels that bring _____and _____ to bone and remove waste products
  • Medullary cavity: central shaft of long bone composed of _______ marrow (stores fat cells)
cancellous bone spongy trabecular
CancellousBone (spongy/trabecular)
  • Light, spongy
  • Found at ____________, ribs, sternum, hips, vertebrae, cranium spaces
  • Contain red bone marrow with elements for blood formation
bone markings purpose
Bone Markings - Purpose
  • Join one bone to another
  • Provide a surface for attachment of muscles
  • Create an opening for passage of blood vessels and nerves
  • Use as landmarks
major types of bone markings
Major types of Bone Markings

•Processes/Projections: serve as attachments for muscles and tendons

  • Depressions: openings or hollow regions help join bones or serve as passageways __________________

long bones
Extremities (Femur, tibia, fibula, humerus, ulna, radius, clavicle

Act as ______
