Flashcards in Skeletal System Deck (35):
What are the 6 functions of the skeletal system
Assists with movement
Production of blood cells
Storage of energy
What does the skeletal system do?
Provide physical framework for the body, supports soft tissues, and acts as an attachment site for muscles
What does the rib cage do?
Protection: Protects internal organs from injury
Bones do what?
Act as levers to aid in movement
Bones are used as attachment sites for muscles
What are the components of the skeletal system
A flexible and strong connective tissue primarily made up of collagen, elastin and ground substance
Bone tissue stores excess of what minerals?
Calcium, magnesium and phosphorus
Lipids are stored energy where?
Yellow bone marrow
The form of bone tissue is called?
What are joints?
Made up of cartilage and ligaments-joints are the connection place between bones where movement occurs
Fibrous connective tissue that connects bone to bone
Hard and rigid form of connective tissue that makes up most of the skeleton
What are the 4 bone cells?
Immature bone cell that will develop into an osteoblast
Bone cells that build up new bone tissue
Mature bone cell that is responsible for regulating the amount of calcium that is found within the bone tissue
The bone cells that breaking down and clean up mature or damaged bone tissue
What are the types of bone tissue
Is a hard dense tissue found on the outer portions of the bone
Also known as the cortical bone
How many bones are in the human body
What are the two types of spongy bone
Red bone marrow
Yellow bone marrow
The study of function, structure disease and treatment of the skeletal system
The ends of a long bone
The shaft of a long bone
Type of connective tissue found at the ends of the bone that reduce friction
Fascial membrane that covers the outside of compact bone
The space where spongy bone can be found
Fascial membrane that separates the medullary cavity from the compact bone
Fused together by sutures joints
Hard and rigid form of connective tissue
What bones make up the pelvis
