Cutaneous Membrane: List the Tissue Types: membrane composition (epithelial/connective), Common locations, General functions.

epithelial, connective tissue;
found in the skin;
functions are: secretion, oil and sweat, waterproofing, keratin, bacteriostatic acid mantle and sebum, and protect against chemical and mechanical damage keratinization and continuity.

2

Mucous: List the Tissue Types: membrane composition (epithelial/connective), Common locations, General functions.

epithelial, connective tissue;
lining of the digestive, respiratory and urogenital tracts;
general functions are secretion mucus, absorption, ciliated for movement of substances.

3

Serous: List the Tissue Types: membrane composition (epithelial/connective), Common locations, General functions.

epithelial, connective tissue;
lining of closed ventral body cavities;
secretion serous fluid; decreases friction.

4

Synovial: List the Tissue Types: membrane composition (epithelial/connective), Common locations, General functions.

connective tissue;
lining of the joint cavities of freely moveable joints;
secretionsynovial fluid; decreases friction.

5

Membrane type in joints, bursae and tendon sheaths

synovial

6

Epithelium of this membrane is always simple squamous epithelium

serous

7

Membrane types not found in the ventral cavity

synovial

8

The only membrane type in which goblet cells are found

mucous

9

The dry membrane with keratinizing epithelium

cutaneous

10

"wet" membranes

mucous

11

Adapted for absorption and secretion

mucous

12

Has parietal and visceral layers

serous

14

Knowing that -itis is the suffix meaning "inflammation of" what do peritonitis, pleurisy and pericarditis patological conditions have in common?

all are inflammations of serous membrane

15

Why are these conditions accompanied by great deal of pain?

when serous membranes become inflamed, insufficient serous fluid may be produced. As a result, friction increases and adhesions may form.
