1 Skeletal System 206 bones in the body

2 BONES FUNCTIONS Supports body and provides shape.
Protects internal organs. Movement and anchorage of muscles. Mineral storage. (Calcium and phorphorus) Hemopoiesis 

3 OSTEOCYTE – mature bone cell
OSTEOBLAST- Immature bone cell

4 BONE FORMATION Embryo skeletal starts as osteoblasts
(primitive embryonic cells) – then change to cartilage. At 8 weeks, OSSIFICATION begins. (Mineral matter begins to replace cartilage Infant bones soft because ossification not complete at birth

5 FONTANEL - Soft spot on baby’s head
Will ossify (become hard bone) around 18 months of age

MEDULLARY CAVITY – center of shaft, filled with yellow bone marrow, which is mostly fat cells, also cells that form white blood cells.

7 ENDOSTEUM – lines marrow cavity
Shaft is made of COMPACT BONE – ends are SPONGY BONE. Ends contain red marrow where red blood cells are made. PERIOSTEUM – tough, outside covering of bone – contains blood vessels, lymph vessels and nerves.

AXIAL – skull, spinal column, ribs, sternum, hyoid APPENDICULAR – shoulder girdle, arms, pelvis, legs

9 Skull Comprised of 22 bones Cranium made up of 9 bones 1 frontal
2 parietal 2 temporal 1 occipital 1 ethmoid 1 sphenoid

10 Skull/Facial Bones Facial bones make up the remaining 14 bones of the skull 2 nasal 1 vomer 2 inferior concha 2 maxilla 2 lacrimal 2 zygomatic 2 palatine 1 mandible 

11 Spine – Vertebral Column
Encloses the spinal cord Vertebrae – bones of the spine separated by pads of cartilage called intervertebral discs 

12 Spinal column Cervical vertebrae (7) Thoracic vertebrae (12)
Lumbar vertebrae (5) Sacrum Coccyx

13 Ribs and Sternum Sternum divided into 3 parts – bottom tip is XIPHOID PROCESS  12 pairs of ribs – first 7 are true ribs – connected to sternum by cartilage next 3 are false ribs – cartilage connects them to 7th rib (not sternum) next 2 are floating

14 Appendicular Skeleton
Shoulder Girdle clavicle – collar bone scapula – shoulder blade humerus – upper arm radius and ulna – lower arm

15 Wrist/Hands Bones carpals – wrist bones – held together by ligaments
metalcarpals – hand bones phalanges – fingers

16 Pelvic Girdle pelvis – 3 bones (ilium, ischium, and pubis)

17 Leg Bones femur – upper leg, longest and strongest bone in body
tibia and fibula – lower leg patella – kneecap

18 Foot/Ankle Bones tarsal bones – ankle calcaneus – heel bone metatarsals – foot bones

19 JOINTS Joints are points of contact between 2 bones – classified according to movement: SYNOVIAL FLUID – lubricating substance in joints

20 Joints BALL AND SOCKET JOINT – bone with ball-shaped head fits into concave socket of 2nd bone. Shoulders and hips. HINGE JOINTS – move in one direction or plane. Knees, elbows, outer joints of fingers.

21 Joints PIVOT JOINT – those with an extension rotate on a 2nd, arch shaped bone. Radius and ulna, atlas and axis. GLIDING JOINTS – flat surfaces glide across each other. Vertebrae of spine. SUTURE – immovable joint

22 Types of Motion Motion: Increase or decrease the angle between 2 bones. FLEXION Bending motion that decreases the angle of the joint bringing the 2 bones closer together.

23 EXTENSION Movement that increases the angle between the 2 bones.

24 ABDUCTION Movement of the limb along the frontal plane. Raising an arm laterally or spreading the fingers ADDUCTION Movement of the limb toward the body. CIRCUMDUCTION Movement of a limb in a circle or cone shape.

25 ROTATION Turning of the bone along its own long axis. Only movement allowed between first 2 cervical vertebra

26 PRONATION Movement of the radius around the ulna. palm faces down SUPINATION Movement of the radius around the ulna. palm faces up

27 Disorders of the Bones and Joints
FRACTURE – a break  Treated by: CLOSED REDUCTION – cast or splint applied OPEN REDUCTION – surgical intervention with devices such as wires, metal plates or screws to hold the bones in alignment (internal fixation)

28 Treatment of Fractures
TRACTION – pulling force used to hold the bones in place – used for fractures of long bones

29 GREENSTICK – in children, bone bent and splintered but never completely separate

30 Spiral-twisting of bone causes bone to break

31 Comminuted Fracture Bone will break into many fragments or pieces

32 Compound Fracture The bone will break through the skin
A simple fracture, the bone does not penetrate through the skin

33 DISLOCATION – bone displaced from proper position in joint
SPRAIN – sudden or unusual motion, ligaments torn but joint not dislocated STRAIN – overstretching or tearing muscle

34 Diseases of Bones ARTHRITIS – inflammation of one or more joints

35 Abnormal curvatures of the spine:
KYPHOSIS – hunchback LORDOSIS – swayback SCOLIOSIS – lateral curvature


37 Diagnosis and Treatment:
ARTHROSCOPY – examination into joint using arthroscope with fiber optic lens, most knee injuries treated with arthroscopy.

38 Arthroscopy
