1 Integumentary System:
Ch. 4 Integumentary System: The Skin and Its Parts

2 Applied Learning Outcomes
1. Use terminology associated with the Integumentary system 2. Learn about skin structure, function, appendages, glands, and care 3. Understand the aging and pathology of the Integumentary system

3 Case Study Investigation – Ch. 4
You are observing an elderly woman who is seeing a personal trainer as part of her rehabilitation therapy. The woman was hospitalized for problems associated with obesity & high blood sugar. She is now going through an exercise program to helpb bring her back to health. While working out, one of her socks rolled down exposing the lower part of her leg. A glance at the side of her left leg, revealed a large, shiny, deep red

4 sore. The sore had a dark margin, like tanned skin.
Parts of it looked as if you could see right through to the muscle. The woman saw your face reacting to the sore and kindly said, “Don’t worry about that, it doesn’t cause me any pain.” Part of the personal’s trainer’s responsibility is to pay attention to the pathology that can be worsened by the patient’s rehab. By the end of this chapter you will be asked to determine the possible problems causing this skin condition.
