1

Lymphatic flow

Left 3/4 of body- drains into left thoracic duct into the left subclavian vein before internal carotid

Right upper 1/4 of body= drains into right thoracic duct into right subclavian vein before internal carotid

2

Areas of no Lymphatic drainage

CNS, Bone, Lungs...avascular regions

3

Large Lymph node regions

Head/Neck- submental, pre and post auricular, occipital, supraclavicular, infraclavicular, anterior/posterior cervical, and deep cervical

Axillary- medial, lateral, anterior, posterior, and axillary

Inguinal- superficial and deep

Abdominal/Thoracic- bundles along vena cavae and pulmonary hilum

4

Lymph Organs

Tonsils- pharyngeal, tonsil, lingual

Thymus, spleen, peyers patches, appendix

5

Hypothalamus

secretes releasing and inhibitory hormones to anterior pituitary, produces OXT & ADH

6

Pituitary

anterior and posterior- release hormones into blood

7

Thyroid Gland (function, lobes, nearby nerves)

Metabolism
right, isthmus, left lobe
adjacent nerves- vagus and recurrent laryngeal

8

Parathyroid Glands

4, monitory Ca2+ secrete PTH

9

Adrenal Glands

Cortex- cortisol, androgens, ADH
Medulla- E and NE

10

Pancreas (nearby nerve and function)

alpha (glucagon) and beta (insulin) cells

vagus nerve posterior

11

Pineal Gland

secretes Melatonin- circadian rhythm

12

Testicles and Ovaries

Gonadatropins, LH and FSH

LH- women-->progesterone, ovulation, and development of corpus luteum
men--> production of testosterone and sperm production

FSH- women--> estrogen, production of eggs
men--> production of sperm
