Anatomy October 6, 2016; DISCLAIMER PICTURES AND CONTENT ARE FROM LECTURE AND LECTURE PRESENTATION  Repair of the Integument o Bleeding occurs o Mast cells trigger inflammatory response o A scab stabilizes and protects the area o Germinative cells migrate around the wound o Macrophages clean the area o Fibroblasts and endothelial cells move in producing granulation tissues o Steps  1. Inflammatory Phase  Bleeding occurs at the site, and mast cells trigger an inflammatory response   2. Migratory Phase  Scab forms and cells of the stratum Basale are migrating along the edges of the wound.  Phagocytic cells are removing debris and more arrive with enhanced circulation  Clotting partially isolates the region   3. Proliferation Phase  About a week after scabbing  The scab is undermined by epidermal cells migrating over the collagen fiber meshwork produced by the fibroblast  Phagocytic activity around the site has almost ended.   4. Scarring Phase  After Several weeks the scab is shed  A shallow depression marks the site of injury  Fibroblasts in the dermis continue to create scar tissue  Will elevate the overlying epidermis  Skin Cancer o Typically induced by UV rays of the sun o Typically, on the head and neck, fair-skinned and the elderly are the most commonly affected o Easiest to treat and has highest survival rates o Three types  Basal Cell carcinoma  Most common, least dangerous, forms In the stratum Basale,  Squamous cell carcinoma  Arise from keratinocytes from stratum spinosum  Scalp, ears, lower lip, or back of had  High recovery rate with early detection and surgical removal  May become lethal  Malignant melanoma  Arises from melanocytes often in moles  Can be treated surgically if caught early  Metastasizes rapidly, typically fatal.  Burns o UVA and UVB may initiate skin cancer o Sunscreens protect you from sunburn but may not protect cancer o Chemical in the sunscreen can damaged DNA and generate harmful free radicals o Burns are the leading cause of accidental death o First degree burn: Partial thickness burn, involves only the epidermis. Most sunburns are first degree o Second degree burn: Partial thickness burn involves the epidermis and part of the dermis. Typically forms a blister o Third degree burn: Full thickness burn; Epidermis and all of the dermis and potentially muscles and bones  Require a graft  Autograft: Tissue taken from another location on the same person’s body  Isograph: Taking skin from identical twin  Homograft: From an unrelated person  Heterograft: From another species  Amnion from afterbirth  Artificial skin from silicone and collagen  Effects of aging o Epidermal thinning o Degreased number of dendritic cells o Decreased vitamin 3 Production o Decreased melanocyte activity o Decreased glandular activity o Degreased blood supply o Decreased function of hair follicles o Reduction of elastic fibers o Decreased hormone levels o Slow repair rate Chapter 6  Skeletal system o Includes bones of the skeleton, cartilages, ligaments, and connective tissues o 5 functions  Support  Storage of minerals (calcium) and Lipids (Yellow marrow)  Blood cell production (Red marrow)  Protection  Leverage (force of motion) o Classification  Shape, internal tissue organization, and bone marking’s  Shapes  Sutural bones  Irregular bones  Short bones  Flat bones  Long bones  Sesamoid bones  Bone markings  Depressions or grooves  Elevations of projections  Tunnels  Structure of a long bone  Ex.

Found in the head, eyebrows, and eyelashes, and other parts of the body after puberty  Sebaceous glands and sweat glands o Sebaceous glands: Holocrine glands, secrete sebum  Simple branched alveolar glands are associated with hair follicles  Sebaceous follicles: discharge directly onto the surface of the skin  Sebum: Contains lipids, it lubricates and protects the epidermis and inhibits bacteria o Sweat glands  Apocrine: Found in armpits, nipples, and groin. Secrete products into the hair follicles, produce cloudy/sticky secretions, break down and cause odors. They are surrounded by myoepithelial cells that squeeze apocrine glands secretions onto skin surface. These are a result of hormonal or nervous signals  Merocrine (eccrine): watery secretions  Widely distributed on the surface of the body, mostly on the palms and soles of the feet. Coiled, tubular glands. They discharge directly onto the skin surface. This is sensible perspiration. o Other glands  Mammary glands: Produce milk  Ceruminous glands: Produce earwax (cerumen) o Control of the glands  ANS (autonomic nervous system)  Controls subaceous and apocrine sweat glands over entire body  Merocrine sweat glands  Controlled independently  Thermoregulation  The main function of sensible perspiration  Nails o Protect fingers and toes, made of dead cells packed with keratin. o Nail production occurs deep in the epidermal fold near the bone called the nail root o Nail body: The visible portion of the nail that covers the nail bed o Lunula: the pale crescent at the base of the nail o Sides of nails: Lay in the lateral nail grooves surrounded by lateral nail folds o Hyponychium: The skin beneath the distal free edge of the nail o Eponychium: The cuticle of the nail where it emerges
