Transcript of "Human Lymphatic System"

  1. 1. Human Lymphatic System<br />Adam Rowe<br />Medical Terminology<br />Biology 120<br />
  2. 2. Lymphatic System Overview<br />
  3. 3. Function<br />Protects the body from disease and invasion from pathogens<br />Removes interstitial fluid from tissues<br />Absorbs and transports fatty acids and fats to circulatory system<br />
  4. 4. Function<br />Lymph means clear water and is fluid and protein that has been squeezed from blood<br />Lymph fluid drains from tissue into lymph capillaries<br />Lymph is drained from tissue and returned to blood<br />Lymph nodes filter the fluid<br />
  5. 5. Organs of the Lymphatic System<br />Bone Marrow<br />Lymph Nodes<br />Spleen<br />Thymus<br />Tonsils<br />
  6. 6. Organs of the Lymphatic System<br />The spleen helps body fight infection<br />Contains lymphocytes and macrophages<br />Macrophages engulf and destroy bacteria, dead tissue, and foreign matter<br />The spleen removes these elements from the bloodstream<br />
  7. 7. Organs of the Lymphatic System<br />Bone Marrow produces lymphocytes (B-Cells)<br />T-lymphocytes (T-Cells) mature in the thymus gland<br />T-Cells protect us from disease<br />
  8. 8. Facts<br />Divided into two parts:<br />Conducting system<br />Lymphoid tissue<br />Lymph Nodes are bean shaped and range from a few mm to 1-2 cm<br />The lymphatic system is closely related to the cardiovascular system<br />The lymphatic system returns about 3.17 quarts of fluid each day to the blood<br />
