14 Bone Marrow Red Locations – Flat bones Function – RBC – WBC – Platelets – Hgb Yellow Location – Long bones Fatty

15 Bone Cells Osteoblasts – Form matrix Osteocytes – Maintenance Osteoclasts – Dissolving & resorbing

16 Bone Maintenance Modeling – Childhood – Bones grow & form Remodeling – Adulthood – Resorption – Osteogenesis

17 Cool Fact! Complete skeletal turnover occurs every 10 years

18 Resorption / Osteogenesis Homeostasis a.Physical activity b.Nutrition c.Hormones

19 Physical Activity Weight-bearing stimulates bone formation & remodeling

20 What happens if… A person is on prolonged bed rest or physically disabled and they don't engage in regular weight bearing activities? –  bone resorption  – Calcium loss  – Osteopenic bones  – fractures

21 Nutrition Calcium – 1000 – 1200 mg / day – 16 – 24 oz. milk

22 What two endocrine hormones work in harmony to maintain normal serum Calcium levels? What? I need to give you multiple choice answers! NO way! Turn to your neighbor and tell them the answer to this question PTH Calcitonin

23 Hormones PTH Secreted by – Parathyroid Effect –  Serum Ca+ levels Action – Promotes movement of Ca + from bone to blood Calcitonin Secreted by – Thyroid Effect –  Serum Ca+ levels Action – Inhibits bone resorption &  deposits of Ca + in the bone

24 Hormones Hyperthyroidism  –  bone resorption –  bone formation Cushing’s syndrome  –  bone resorption –  bone formation

28 Articular System Joint – Junction of 2 or more bones

29 Joints Synarthrosis – immovable Amphiarthrosis – Limited motion – Joined by cartilage Diarthrosis – Freely movable

30 Types of diarthrosis joints Ball & Socket Hinge Saddle Pivot Gliding

32 Do the bone surfaces of a normal functioning synovial joint come in direct contact with each other? A.Yes B.No Synovial fluid acts as a shock absorber

33 Ligaments, tendons, bursa Tendons – Bind muscle to bone

34 Ligaments, tendons, bursa Ligaments – Bind bone to bone

37 Types of Muscles Skeletal Muscles – Voluntary movement Smooth muscles – Internal control – e.g. bladder, GI, bronchi Cardiac muscles – Heart

38 Muscle Cell Parallel cells encased – Fascia Contains – Myofibrils – Contain Sarcomeres Contracting unit

39 Contraction Cell contract in response to electrical stimulation  Ca+ ion enters sacromeres  Sacromeres contract  Ca+ rapidly removed  Sacromere relaxes Ca

40 Energy Source ATP – Adenosine triphosphate  – Glucose Metabolism Not all ATP is used with muscle contraction  excess energy  heat

41 Types of contractions Isometric – Length of muscle remains constant but   force Isotonic – Shortening of the muscle without increase in tension Combination

42 Muscle Tone State of readiness Flaccid: –  tone Spastic: –  tone Atonic: – No nerve impulse  no tone  atrophy

43 Muscle Action Contraction  movement! Exercise  – Function – Strength – Size Hypertrophy Over exercise  – Lactic acid – Fatigue

44 Gerontologic Considerations Aging vs… –  activity – Lifestyle – Pathophysiological factors

45 Aging Structural Changes Bones –  bone mass – Vertebrae collapse Muscles –  collagen – Atrophy –  elasticity Joints – Cartilage deteriorates Ligaments – Lax

46 Aging functional Changes Bones – Fragile, prone to fracture Muscles –  strength, weak, tired, stumble Joints – Stiff, pain Ligaments – Postural changes

47 Aging H&P findings  height Kyphosis Flexion of hips & knees Fractures Stiffness  strength

48 Assessment: Health History Common symptoms – Pain – Alt. sensation Past health Social history Family history

49 Small Group Question Mrs. Jones comes into the doctor’s office complaining of pain in her left knee. What questions will you ask her to assess her pain?

50 Did you ask the following questions? Characteristics Location Rating Onset Duration Manifestations Precipitating factors Effect of ADL’s Aggravations Diminishes Radiating Associated complaints Past injuries

51 Physical Examination Posture – What is this? – Kyphosis  curve of the thoracic spine
