1 Surface Anatomy Palpation – feeling internal structures through the skin “Living anatomy” – provides information about Palpation of arterial pulses Skeleton, muscles, and blood vessels Sounds of the heart and lungs Where to give injections

2 The Head Cranium – selected structures felt through the skin
Superciliary arches External occipital protuberance Mastoid process Temporalis muscle – at temple region Frontalis muscle Feel wrinkling of the forehead when eyebrows are raised

3 Surface Anatomy of Lateral Aspect of the Head
Figure 11.26

4 The Head Face – selected structures felt through the skin
Lacrimal fossa Root and bridge of the nose Auricle of the ear Zygomatic arch Masseter muscle Mandible Temporomandibular joint

5 The Neck Skeletal landmarks Spinous processes of cervical vertebrae
C7 is particularly prominent (vertebra prominens) Hyoid bone – in the anterior, superior neck Laryngeal prominence – the “Adam’s Apple” Cricoid cartilage – inferior to the laryngeal prominence Jugular notch – depression in the superior part of the sternum

6 The Neck Figure 11.27

7 Muscles of the Neck Sternocleidomastoid – most prominent neck muscle
Sternal head Clavicular head Deep to the sternocleidomastoid Common carotid artery Internal jugular vein Trapezius – posterior aspect of the neck

8 Triangles of the Neck The sternocleidomastoid muscles divide the neck
Anterior triangle Posterior triangle Figure 11.28a

9 Triangles of the Neck Figure 11.28b

10 The Trunk The trunk consists of the Thorax Abdomen Pelvis and perineum

11 The Thorax Sternum – portions felt through the skin
Manubrium, xiphoid process, and sternal angle Midaxillary line – line from the center of the axilla onto the lateral thoracic wall Midclavicular line – vertical line from midpoint of the clavicle to the groin

12 Muscles of the Thorax Pectoralis major Serratus anterior

13 The Anterior Thorax and Abdomen
Figure 11.29

14 The Abdomen Structures felt through the skin Iliac crest
Anterior superior iliac spine Inguinal ligament Runs medially from anterior superior iliac spine to the pubic tubercle Pubic crest

15 Inguinal Hernia Figure 11.30

16 Muscles and other Abdominal Surface Features
Linea alba The “white line” extending from xiphoid process to the pubic symphysis Rectus abdominis Linea semilunaris – lateral margin of rectus abdominis

17 The Pelvis and Perineum
Four bony structures define the perineum Pubic symphysis Two ischial tuberosities Coccyx

18 The Back Posterior median furrow – vertical groove along the midline
Spinous processes of vertebrae Spine of the scapula Medial end is opposite T3 Medial border of the scapula

19 The Back Inferior angle of the scapula Iliac crests
Supracristal line – intersects L4 Sacrum – superior to cleft in the buttocks Coccyx – posterior to the anus

20 Surface Anatomy of the Back
Figure 11.31a

21 Muscles of the Back Trapezius Latissimus dorsi Erector spinae

22 Surface Anatomy of the Back
Figure 11.31b

23 Upper Limb and Shoulder
The Axilla Base of the axilla – where armpit hair grows Deep to the axilla – axillary lymph nodes and blood vessels Anterior axillary fold – pectoralis major Posterior axillary fold –latissimus dorsi and teres major

24 Shoulder and Arm Figure 11.32a, b

25 The Shoulder Acromion – lateral end of the spine of the scapula
Acromioclavicular joint Deltoid muscle Covers the greater tubercle of the humerus Figure 11.33

26 The Arm The region between the shoulder and elbow Humerus
Palpated through skin along its entire length Biceps brachii Medial bicipital groove The medial boundary of the biceps brachii Triceps brachii

27 The Arm Figure 11.34

28 The Elbow Lateral and medial epicondyles of the humerus
Ulnar nerve – “funny bone” runs across medial epicondyle Olecranon process of the ulna Cubital fossa – (antecubital fossa) Forms anterior surface of forearm

29 The Anterior Surface of the Forearm and Fist
Figure 11.35a

30 Forearm Bones Radius – partly covered in muscle
Ulna – palpate entire length Styloid process and head – distal end Radius – partly covered in muscle Head of the radius – proximal end Styloid process – distal end

31 Muscles of the Forearm Flexor muscles – anterior forearm
Flexor carpi radialis Palmaris longus This muscle is absent in about 30% of people Extensor muscles – posterior forearm

32 Other Structures of the Forearm
Anatomical snuff box bordered by Extensor pollicis brevis Extensor pollicis longus

33 The Hand Dorsum of hand Palmar surface Dorsal venous network
Tendons of extensor digitorum Palmar surface Thenar eminence (not labeled on figure 11.35b) Hypothenar eminence (see figure 11.17a–c ) Pisiform bone

34 The Dorsum of the Hand Figure 11.36

35 Gluteal Region Iliac crests Posterior superior iliac spine
Sacroiliac joint Prominences of the buttocks “Cheeks” of the buttocks Formed from subcutaneous fat and the gluteal muscles

36 The Gluteal Region Figure 11.37

37 Lower Limb and Gluteal Region
Natal cleft (gluteal cleft) Vertical midline groove between “cheeks” Gluteal fold Horizontal fold below each “cheek” Ischial tuberosities Greater trochanter of the femur Located at the lateral hip

38 Lower Limb and Gluteal Region
Figure 11.38a

39 Thigh Medial and lateral condyles of the femur Patella
Three groups of muscles Quadriceps femoris – anterior thigh Vastus lateralis – injection site Adductors – medial thigh Hamstrings – posterior thigh

40 Thigh Figure 11.38b

41 The Thigh The Femoral Triangle Popliteal fossa
Superior border – inguinal ligament Inferior borders Sartorius Adductor longus Popliteal fossa Diamond-shaped hollow on posterior knee Defined by borders of “hamstring” tendons and gastrocnemius

42 Leg and Foot Palpate patella to find the patellar ligament
Structures of the proximal leg Tibial tuberosity Lateral and medial condyles of the tibia Head of the fibula Structures of the distal leg Medial malleolus Lateral malleolus

43 Leg and Foot Figure 11.40a, c

44 Muscle Groups of the Leg
Posterior calf muscles Gastrocnemius and soleus Calcaneal tendon – inferior end of the soleus and gastrocnemius Anterior compartment muscles Tibialis anterior Extensor digitorum Fibularis

45 Muscle Groups of the Leg

46 Foot Tendons on the dorsal surface of the foot
Extensor digitorum longus tendon Extensor hallucis longus

47 Foot Figure 11.40d
