***Skin Song video below...
https://youtu.be/XSi0lbbbeTE
This illustrations shows the silhouette of a human female from an anterior view. Several organs are showing in her neck, thorax, abdomen left arm and right leg. Text boxes point out and describe the mucous membranes in several different organs. The topmost box points to the mouth and trachea. It states that mucous membranes line the digestive, respiratory, urinary and reproductive tracts. They are coated with the secretions of mucous glands. The second box points to the outside edge of the lungs as well as the large intestine and states that serous membranes line body cavities that are closed to the exterior of the body, including the peritoneal, pleural and pericardial cavities. The third box points to the skin of the hand. It states that cutaneous membrane, also known as the skin, covers the body surface. The fourth box points to the right knee. It states that synovial membranes line joint cavities and produce the fluid within the joint.



Wednesday-9/19...CW: Ch 3.2-The Integumentary System...
***Integument means covering, ie. the skin
***Cutaneous = skin...

We start our drawing and labeling diagrams...Accuracy and neatness count-colors may be used to accent and reinforce labels and structures.
***Here is video link on drawing from today...
https://youtu.be/6YIPoARvZ4A
***Absent students-you may use any white sheet of paper to complete assignment if not present....

HW: For tomorrow....Label and draw 2 'glands' of the skin..
Sudoriferous glands(sweat) and Sebaceous glands(Oil) both found in DERMIS layer...
Also Draw and label the Hair Follicle-it's living and it covers the Hair Root in the Dermis...it pushes through the Epidermis as a Hair Shaft(It is dead)...
***Draw, label and color yellow the Adipose tissue(fat) in the Hypodermis(Subcutaneous) layer as round cells in clusters...
***DO NOT BE COLOR HAPPY-ONLY HIGHLIGHT LABELS and TITLE...
Tomorrow we learn the structures and complete our drawing Katman-art of Integumentary system...
***Remember tutoring requires a pass from me prior to tutoring and/or a Remind message-don't just show up...

3 Layers of the Skin
  • The epidermis (dead), the outermost layer of skin, provides a waterproof barrier and creates our skin tone(melanin and keratin)
  • The dermis (living), beneath the epidermis, contains tough connective tissue, hair follicles, and sweat glands.
  • The deeper subcutaneous tissue (hypodermis) is made of fat(adipose-often yellowish) and connective tissue.
  • 2 Glands: Sweat and Oil glands...
  • Sudoriferous = Sweat gland...
  • Sebaceous = Oil glands...
This illustration shows a cross section of skin tissue. The outermost layer is called the epidermis, and occupies one fifth of the cross section. Several hairs are emerging from the surface. The epidermis dives around one of the hairs, forming a follicle. The middle layer is called the dermis, which occupies four fifths of the cross section. The dermis contains an erector pilli muscle connected to one of the follicles. The dermis also contains an eccrine sweat gland, composed of a bunch of tubules. One tubule travels up from the bunch, through the epidermis, opening onto the surface a pore. There are two string-like nerves travelling vertically through the dermis. The right nerve is attached to a Pacinian corpuscle, which is a yellow structure consisting of concentric ovals similar to an onion. The lowest level of the skin, the hypodermis, contains fatty tissue, arteries, and veins. Blood vessels travel from the hypodermis and connect to hair follicles and erector pilli muscle in the dermis.
