DESCRIBE COMPLETELY THE STANDARD HUMAN ANATOMICAL POSITION.

IN THE ANATOMICAL POSITION THE HUMAN BODY IS ERECT, WITH THE FEET ONLY SLIGHTLY APART, HEAD AND TOES POINTED FORWARD, AND ARMS HANGING AT THE SIDES WITH PALMS FACING FORWARD.

12

DEFINE SECTION

A CUT, A PART OF THE BODY OR ORGAN THAT IS CUT TO BE ABLE TO OBSERVE/STUDY IT WITHOUT INCLUDING SURROUNDING AREAS.

13

In the anatomical position, the face and palms are on the (1) body surface; the buttocks and shoulder blades are on the (2) body surface; and the top of the head is the most (3) part of the body. The ears are (4) and (5) to the shoulders and (6) to the nose. The heart is (7) to the vertebral column (spine) and (8) to the lungs. The elbow is (9) to the fingers but (10) to the shoulder. The abdominopelvic cavity is (11) to the thoracic cavity and (12) to the spinal cavity. In humans, the dorsal surface can also be called the (13) surface; however, in quadruped animals, the
dorsal surface is the (14) surface.

14

If an incision cuts the heart into right and left parts, the section is a (15) section; but if the heart is cut so that superior and inferior portions result, the section is a (16) section. You are told to cut a dissection animal along two planes
so that the kidneys are observable in both sections. The two sections that will always meet this requirement are the (17) and (18) sections. A section that demonstrates the continuity between the spinal and cranial cavities is a (19) section.

Which body cavity would have to be opened for the following types of surgery or procedures?

surgery to remove a cancerous lung lobe

THORACIC; VENTRAL

21

Which body cavity would have to be opened for the following types of surgery or procedures?

appendectomy

ABDOMINOPELVIC; VENTRAL

22

Which body cavity would have to be opened for the following types of surgery or procedures?

removal of the uterus, or womb

ABDOMINOPELVIC; VENTRAL

23

Which body cavity would have to be opened for the following types of surgery or procedures?

stomach ulcer operation

ABDOMINOPELVIC; VENTRAL

24

Which body cavity would have to be opened for the following types of surgery or procedures?

removal of a brain tumor

CRANIAL; DORSAL

25

Which body cavity would have to be opened for the following types of surgery or procedures?

delivery of pre-operative “saddle” anesthesia

SPINAL; DORSAL

26

Name the muscle that subdivides the ventral body cavity.

DIAPHRAGM

27

Which organ system would not be represented in any of the body cavities?

SKIN

28

What are the bony landmarks of the abdominopelvic cavity?

HIP BONES

29

Which body cavity affords the least protection to its internal structures?

ADOMINAL

30

What is the function of the serous membranes of the body?

THESE MEMBRANES PRODUCE A THIN LUBRICATING FLUID THAT ALLOWS THE VISCERAL ORGANS TO SLIDE OVER ONE ANOTHER OR TO RUB AGAINST HE BODY WALL WITH MINIMAL FRICTION. ALSO TO COMPARTMENTALIZE THE VARIOUS ORGANS SO THAT INFECTION OF ONE ORGAN IS PREVENTED FROM SPREADING TO OTHERS.
