  • 1. Liver
  • 2. Functions of liver
    Protein Synthesis
    Production of Biochemicals for digestion
  • 3. Anatomy of Liver
  • 4. Anatomy of Liver
    The liver is a reddish brown organ with four lobes of unequal size and shape.
    It is located in the right upper quadrant of the abdominal cavity, resting just below the diaphragm.
    It is connected to two large blood vessels.

  • 6. Physiology
    A large part of amino acid synthesis.
    The liver performs several roles in carbohydrate metabolism.
    The liver is responsible for the mainstay of protein metabolism, synthesis as well as degradation.
  • 7. Diseases of the liver (infections)
    Hepatitis A, B, C, E
    Alcohol damage
    Fatty liver
    Drug damage
  • 8. Physical Diagnosis of Liver Disease
  • 9. Disease signs
    Pale Stool
    Dark urine
    Itching is the most common complaint by people who have liver failure
    Swelling of the abdomen, ankles and feet
    Excessive fatigue occurs from a generalized loss of nutrients, minerals and vitamins.

  • 10. Liver Biopsy
  • 11. Biopsy
    To determine damage to the liver is with a biopsy.
    A biopsy is not required in all cases, but may be necessary when the cause is unknown.
    A needle is inserted into the skin just below the rib cage and a biopsy is obtained. The tissue is sent to the laboratory, where it is analyzed under a microscope.
  • 12. Facts
    It is both the largest internal organ (the skin being the largest organ overall) and the largest gland in the human body.
    The liver is the only internal human organ capable of natural regeneration of lost tissue; as little as 25% of a liver can regenerate into a whole liver.
    In the first trimester fetus, the liver is the main site of red blood cell production.
