1

what is thixotropy?

manipulation of tissues increase tissue fluidity and flexibility

2

surrounds soft organs like the spleen, support cells.

branching mesh-like fiber network like cheese cloth.

reticular fibers

3

found in skin and blood arteries.

fibers can both stretch and recoil like rubber bands.

found in: arteries, lungs skins

elastic substance

4

gel like substance surrounding cells.

allows WBC's to spread into spaces surround cells.

provide shape to tissues (eyeballs)

secrete by fibroblasts

ground substance

5

found in all connective tissues , cartilage, tendons, ligaments,veins and scar tissue.

fibers are strong and flexible like rope.

(25% of total body protein)
excessive (blank) tissue may reduce range of motion.

collagen fibers

6

contain the most collagen fibers

dense connective tissue

7

adipose tissue
subcutaneous layer of skin

areolar tissue
contains all three fibers types

loose connective tissue

8

lymph fluid: similar to blood plasma but fewer proteins

blood: plasma

liquid connective tissue

9

found at ends of bones, ears, and between vertebrae.

hyaline, fibrocartilage, elastic.

cartilage

10

parallel bundles

tendons, ligaments

dense regular

11

sheets or bands of fibers

deep fascia for investing Fascia

dense irregular

12

ears and Eustachian tubes.

epiglottis in throat

elastic cartilage

13

between vertebral discs

least flexible.
made densely packed fibers arranged in bundles

fibrocartilage

14

end of bones and of ribs and long bones

embryo skeleton

must abundant

surface of joints

rigid and flexible

hyaline cartilage

15

line joint cavities

line cavities that do NOT open to the outside

secrete lubricating fluids

synovial membranes

16

Line cavities that do NOT open to the outside

secrete lubricating fluids

contain a visceral (inside) and parietal (outside layers) with fluid in the space between. bag around organs as heart and lungs.

serous membranes

17

secrete lubricating fluids

found in digestive and respiratory tract

like cavities that do open to the outside.

mucus membranes

18

types of tissues have continual ability for regeneration.

epithelial tissues
bone tissues

19

which tissues have poor ability to regenerate

muscle tissue

cartilage tissue

20

which types of tissues have no blood supply

cartilage tissues

epithelial tissues (diffusion- replaces itself daily

21

proper term for when tissue can't repair itself and scar tissue is formed.

secrete fibers and ground substance.

fibrosis or fibroblasts

22

tissues bond together (rom) due to increased collagen fibers secretion caused by immobility, chronic pressure, inflammation, injury steroids (cortison)

adhesion

23

4 changed that occur to connective tissues that result from aging

healing ability- reduced cellular blood supply, metabolic and synthesis rate. risk for chronic illiness: heart disease hypertension, stroke, diabetes, cancer.

flexibility collagen fibers in number, thickness and calcify(maintain with stretching)

muscle tissue mass (maintained with regular exercise)

adipose tissue (reduced with regular exercise)

atherosclerosis: fatty deposits on arterial walls reducing blood supply.


24

between skin and muscle

subcutaneous tissue

contains adipose, lymph, nerves; bursae in joints(fluid filled cavities found in joints, Elbow, knee shoulder)

superficial fascia

25

covers, separate muscles groups.

separates fat from muscle

purpose:connect to periosteum, holds tendons in place; prevent blood pooling in muscles

deep fascia

26

sudoriferous and sebaceous glands are type of

salivary gland.

exocrine
