15

what is the calcaneal tendon

achilles tendon

16

what tendons form the achilles tendon

gastochenimus and soleus tendons

17

where does the achilles tendon attach to

calcaneal tuberosity

18

what reflex is tested using the achilles tendon, what movement does it produce and what spinal level is it testing

ankle jerk
plantar flexion
S1, 2

19

describe the course of the superficial lymphatics

follows the saphenous veins to drain into the superficial inguinal nodes and then travels internally to the external iliac nodes

20

describe the course of the deep lymphatics

follows the deep veins tand drains into the popliteal lymph nodes and also the deep inguinal nodes to then drain into the external iliac nodes
