    2. 2. CONTENTS:A. Interactive LessonB. GlossaryC. Pre-TestD. Post-Test
    4. 4. THE SKELETAL SYSTEMHave you ever seen the frame of ahouse when its being built?
    5. 5. A baby have over 300 bones.By the time you are anadult, you have 206 bones in your body.
    6. 6. The Skeletal System serves many important functions;a. provides the shapeb. Supports our bodyc. Protects the internal organsd. Allows bodily movemente. Produces blood for the bodyf. Store minerals
    7. 7. Divisions of the SkeletonThe human skeleton is divided intotwo distinct parts:1. AXIAL SKELETON- It consists ofbones that form the axis of the bodyand support and protect the organs ofthe head, neck, and trunk. The Skull The Sternum The RibsThe Vertebral Column
    8. 8. 2. APPENDICULAR SKELETON – it is composed of bones that anchor the appendages to the axial skeleton. The Upper Extremities The Lower Extremities The Shoulder Girdle The Pelvic Girdle - (the sacrum and coccyx are considered part of the vertebral column)
    10. 10. back LONG BONES are longer than they are wide and work as levers. EXAMPLES: humerus, tibia, femur, ulna, metacarpals
    11. 11. back SHORT BONES are short, cube- shaped, and found in the wrists and ankles
    12. 12. back FLAT BONES have broad surfaces for protection of organs and attachment of muscles EXAMPLES ribs, cranial bones, bones of shoulder girdle
    13. 13. back IRREGULAR BONES are all others that do not fall into the previous categories. They have varied shapes, sizes, and surfaces features EXAMPLES Skull, Vertebrae
    14. 14. HOMEBone Composition1. COMPACT or DENSE BONE - dense, hard, and forms the protective exterior portion of all bones .2. SPONGY or CANCELLOUS BONE - It is inside the compact bone and is very porous (full of tiny holes). Spongy bone occurs in most bones.
    15. 15. back The skull is the bony framework of the head. It is composed of eight cranial and fourteen facial bones.
    16. 16. back The sternumis a flat,dagger shapedbone located inthe middle ofthe chest.
    17. 17. back The ribs are thin,flat, curved bonesthat form a protectivecage around theorgans in the upperbody. It is comprisedof 24 bones arrangedin 12 pairs .
    18. 18. back The vertebral column (also called the backbone, spine, or spinal column) consists of a series of 33 irregularly shaped bones, called
    19. 19. back The upperextremityconsists of threeparts: the arm,the forearm, andthe hand.
    20. 20. back The lower extremity is composed of the bones of the thigh, leg, foot, and the patella (commonly known as the kneecap).
    21. 21. back The Shoulder Girdle, alsocalled the Pectoral Girdle, iscomposed of four bones: twoclavicles and two scapulae .
    22. 22. back The Pelvic Girdle, also called thehip girdle, is composed to two coxal(hip) bones.
    24. 24. What do muscles do?• Muscles pull on the joints and bones, allowing us to move.• They help us breathe by working with the lungs.• They help our hearts beat.• They also help the body perform other functions so we can grow and remain strong
    26. 26. back Skeletal Muscles - move and support the skeleton - they make up fifty percent of your body weight - links two bones across its connecting - voluntary muscles, these are muscles that we can consciously control
    27. 27. back SMOOTH MUSCLES - the muscle fibers look smooth and not striated - involuntary movements of the inner organs, e.g. the (peristaltic) bowel movement
    28. 28. back CARDIAC MUSCLE - These muscles are attached to the heart. - They are responsible for moving the blood through the hearts chambers and pumping it to all parts of the body. - These muscles are involuntary.
    29. 29. HOME* Voluntary muscles are muscles that you can move whenever you want to.* Involuntary musclescontract and relaxautomatically inside yourbody. We can not control ourinvoluntary muscles.
    30. 30. The Nervous System
    31. 31. NERVOUS SYSTEM Central Nervous SystemPeripheral Nervous System
    32. 32. back CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM (CNS) - Its main job is to get the information from the body and send out instructions. BRAIN SPINAL CORD
    33. 33. Brain• It is the control center of the body• The brain also allows us to think, feel, remember and imagine.
    34. 34. back • EEG recording of one persons brain waves; EEG electrode attachment .
    35. 35. back• Spinal Cord - The cord is a thick bundle of nerves, connecting your brain to the rest of your body. - The spinal cord runs down a tunnel of holes in your backbone or spine.
    36. 36. The Peripheral NervousSystem- carries messages to and from the central nervous system.- It comprises two parts: the somatic and the autonomic nervous syste
    37. 37. back• The Somatic Nervous System The somatic nervous system is composed of the sensory (afferent) neurons that carry messages to the central nervous system and the motor (efferent) neurons that carry messages from the central nervous system to the skeletal muscles of the body.
    38. 38. back Autonomic Nervous System The autonomic nervous system carries messages between the central nervous system and the internal organs.
    39. 39. TWO PARTS1. sympathetic2. parasympathetic The first acts primarily to arouse the body; the second, to relax and restore the body to normal levels of arousal.
    40. 40. NEURON or NERVE CELL- The functioning unit of the nervous system.- It carry messages from all parts of the body to the brain.
    41. 41. HOME
    44. 44. back• The upper air passages refer to the respiratory organs in the head of the human being. They include the nose and throat (pharynx).• During breathing in, the air enters initially through the nose, where it is pre- cleaned by a hair filter.
    45. 45. The windpipe (trachea ) joins theupper respiratorytract to the lungs.
    46. 46. back • The bottom of the trachea splits into two branches called bronchi . One enters the right lung and one goes to the left lung. • These divide into twigs called bronchioles.
    47. 47. Digestion The chemical breakdown of complex biological molecules into their component parts. Lipids to fatty acids Proteins to individual amino acids Carbohydrates into simple sugars
    48. 48. The Digestive SystemDigestion The chemical breakdown of complex biological molecules into their component parts. Lipids to fatty acids Proteins to individual amino acids Carbohydrates into simple sugars
    49. 49. Food Type Use• Carbohydrate • Long term energy• Fat • Protecting organs and long term energy store• Protein • Making muscle, enzymes, skin, hair• Sugars • Fast energy
    50. 50. • Mechanical digestion • Chemical digestion – Changes the physical form of food Changes the chemical • Chew composition of food with • Tear the aid of digestive • Grind enzymes • Mash • Carbohydrate • Mix • Protein • Lipid
    51. 51. The Digestive System (Breaking food down into smaller Let’s find out what happened to your breakfast pieces) today!• Mouth• Oesophagus• Stomach• Small Intestine• Liver• Large Intestine• Gall Bladder• Pancreas• Rectum• Anus
    52. 52. • Major parts • AccessoryPartsOrgan – Mouth s that are not in the – Pharynx digestive tract but – Esophagus helps in the digestion – Stomach – Teeth – Small Intestine – Tongue – Large Intestine – Salivary glands – Liver – Gall bladder – Pancreas
    53. 53. • Phases of DigestionIngestion• Movement• Digestion• Absorption• Further digestion
    54. 54. Mouth and Teeth The mouth and teeth are the firststep in breaking food down. Duringthe process of chewing, food isshredded and ground. Powerfulmuscles move the mandible , orlower jaw, while the food is chewed.The front teeth cut the food and theback teeth grind the food.
    55. 55. Only eats meat E.g. Spider, lion Its survival is dependent on finding and catching preyTop predator – Nothingeats him!
    56. 56. • There are three main parts to the tooth: the root, the neck and the crown.
    57. 57. • The root is the part inside the jaw.• The neck is a narrow connection between the root and the crown.• The crown of the tooth is above the gum.
    58. 58. FOUR TYPES OF TEETH1. Incisors2. Canines3. Premolars4. Molars
    59. 59. back incisors - are the sharp- edged teeth in the front of the mouth that bite and cut food. We have 8 of these.
    60. 60. back canines - are the pointed teeth next to the incisors that grip and tear food. We have 4 of these.
    61. 61. back premolars - are the teeth just behind the canines. They help the canines with chopping and assist the molars with grinding. There are 8 of these in our mouths.
    62. 62. back molars - are the teeth in the back of the mouth that pound, grind and crush food into mush so that it can be swallowed. We have 12 molars.
    63. 63. • When food is being chewed, saliva is squirted into the mouth.• Saliva helps to soften the food.• It contains an enzyme that helps break down the starch in the food.• The tongue helps push the food to the back of the mouth
    64. 64. ESOPHAGUS- it is about ten incheslong.– the muscles in theesophagus move thefood down the tube.
    65. 65. STOMACH- a sac shapedmuscular organ- it is about eightinches long- it functions as areservoir holds thefood we eat
    66. 66. SMALL INTESTINE - it is the major site for the digestion (breakdown of nutrients from food and liquid) and absorption (passage into the bloodstream) of nutrients. - it is about 10 feet long 3 parts1. Duodenum2. Jejunum3. Ileum
    67. 67. Duodenum – upper part; about 10 in;connected to the stomach.– where the digestive juices from thepancreas and the liver combine withchyme making it thin and watery.Jejunum – about 8 ftIleum – about 12 ft
    68. 68. Large Intestine/ COLON-Its function is to absorbwater and to solidify thestool into a formedbolus which can beeasily passed.
    69. 69. A meal may take up to three days to pass through your digestive system. It spends about three hours in your stomach.
    70. 70. APPENDIX-It is an organ with noknown function. Itprojects from the roundedend of the large intestine.
    71. 71. LIVER - It is the main warehouse for nutrients absorbed from the small intestine.- The liver is a very large organ located in the upper right quadrant of the abdomen protected by the rib cage.- It also produces bile which is stored in the gallbladder.
    72. 72. GALL BLADDER- It is a sac which serves as a storage reservoir for bile .
    73. 73. HOMEPANCREAS  - Its main function is to secrete digestive enzymes into the small intestine in order to help digest carbohydrates, protein and fat.
    75. 75. Cardiovascular system - it delivers oxygen and nutrients throughout the body by a complex network of vessels
    76. 76. Circulatory pathways The blood vessels of the body are functionally divided into two distinctive circuits: 1. Pulmonary circuit 2. Systemic circuit.
    78. 78. • Pulmonary circuit Pulmonary circulation transports oxygen-poor blood from the right ventricle to the lungs where blood picks up a new blood supply. Then it returns the oxygen-rich blood to the left atrium.
    80. 80. SYSTEMIC CIRCUIT• It carries oxygen and nutrients to the cells and picks up carbon dioxide and waste products.• Systemic circulation carries oxygenated blood from the left ventricle, through the arteries, to the capillaries in the tissues of the body.• From the tissue capillaries, the deoxygenated blood returns through a system of veins to the right atrium of the heart.
    81. 81. HEART
    82. 82. Heart– is a muscularorgan that pumpsblood throughoutthe body.
    83. 83. What is Blood?• Red blood cells - carry oxygen (O2) from your lungs to your body cells and carbon dioxide (CO2) from your body cells back to your lungs to be exhaled• Platelets - help clot blood
    84. 84. • White blood cells - fight germs that infect the body• Plasma - a yellowish liquid that consists mostly of water
    85. 85. A, B, AB and O bloodtypes are determined bythe presence orabsence of antigens(specific chemicals) onthe red blood cells
    86. 86. BLOOD VESSELS• Arteries are tubes that carry blood away from the heart• Veins are tubes that return blood to the heart• Capillaries connect arteries and veins. They are tiny tubes that exchange food, oxygen and wastes between blood and body cells.
    87. 87. HOMERole of the capillaries - capillaries have a vital role in the exchange of gases, nutrients, and metabolic waste products between the blood and the tissue cells.

    94. 94. PITUITARY GLAND1. POSTERIOR PITUITARY - It produces two hormones: vasopressin, which causes blood pressure to rise and regulates the amount of water in the bodys cells, and oxytocin, which causes the uterus to contract during childbirth and lactation to begin.
    95. 95. 2 . ANTERIOR PITUITARY - often called the "master gland," responds to chemical messages from the bloodstream to produce numerous hormones that trigger the action of other endocrine glands .
    96. 96. GONADS- These are reproductiveglands—the testes inmales and the ovariesin females.
    97. 97. HOMEADRENAL GLANDS-Consists of two parts theadrenal cortex, and an innercore, the adrenal medulla.- Both influence the bodysresponses to stress.
    98. 98. EXCRETORY SYSTEM• It removes wastes in the body.• It includes the skin, large intestine, lungs, and kidneys.
    99. 99. SKIN• to form a protective layer over the body to help prevent injury and disease• to keep moisture in the body (water retention)• to make vitamin D• to regulate body temperature• to excrete waste
