Flashcards in Second Lecture Deck (26):
The belly or underside of a body.
Toward the head.
Closer to the tail than any other structure.
Toward the spine/back/top
Closer to the point of attachment (origin) to the body than another structure
Farther from the point of attachment to the body than another structure
Plane that divides the body into dorsal (back) and ventral (belly) parts
Plane that divides the into cranial and caudal parts
Transverse plane (also known as horizontal or cross sectional plane)
A vertical plane that divides the body into right and left sides.
Plane that passes through the midline of the body and divides it into equal right and left sides.
Midsagittal (median) plane
If the sagittal plane does not pass through the midline, but instead divides the body into unequal right and left sides
Hollow space in the skull that contains the brain.
Hollow space with in the spinal column that contains the spinal cord.
Hollow space with in the ribs between the neck and diaphragm that contains the heart and lungs
Thoracic (chest) Cavity
Hollow space between the diaphragm and pelvic cavity that contains the major organs of digestion
Hollow space that contains the sigmoid colon, rectum, anus, urinary bladder, reproductive organs
A thin, slippery tissue that lines the walls of the body cavities and covers the organs within them. This is a double layered membrane.
What are the two layers of the Serous membrane
1) Visceral Serous Membrane
2) Parietal Serous Membrane
Which Serous Membrane is the inner membrane and comes in contact with the organs
Visceral Serous Membrane
The Parietal Serous Membrane is the ......
Outer membrane that lines the cavity.
The Pleural Membrane
Is the Thoracic Cavity's Serous membrane. There are two, one surrounding each lung.
The Thoracic cavity that is in the area between the lungs and houses the heart, great vessels, trachea, right and left bronchi, esophagus, lymph nodes, lymph vessels and nerves.
Significant feature about the Pleural Cavities
Fluid filled that allows for cushion for animal to breath. Without it the Visceral Pleural would rub against the Parietal Pleural with every breath.
The Serous Membrane that lines the Abdominopelvic cavity and covers the organs with in it
The Peritoneum Cavity's organs are suspended from the cavity walls by fused layers. Those tissue layer are
Mesenteries- They permit blood vessels and nerves to contact with the organs
