  • Skeletal System

  • BonesThe skeleton has two major parts:Axial skeleton are the bones of the head and trunkAppendicular skeleton are the bones of the pelvis shoulder girdle and limbs.

  • BonesFunctions of the skeletonAid in movement of the bodySupport and protect internal body organsProduce red and white blood cellsStore minerals for the bodies usage.

  • BonesOssification-process of bone formation.Ossification begins in week 8 of an embryos development.A baby is born with 270 bones and an adult has 206 bonesA babies bones are soft and ossification continues and makes them hard and able to bear weight.

  • BonesDiaphysis-long bone containing a shaft.Epiphysis-end of long boneMedullary canal-center of the shaft where bone marrow isSpongy bone-breakdown of hard bonePeriosteum-fibrous tissue covering the bone

  • BonesBone growth starts from the center of the diaphysis and moves to the epiphyseal ends (end of the bones)

  • BonesOsteoblasts-bone cells involved in the formation of new bone.Osteoclasts-bone cells involved in the breakdown of old bone.

  • BonesWhen the epiephyseal cartilage is completely ossified growth stops. This is approximately 18 in females and 20-21 in males.Does this mean bone growth stops? Why or why not?

  • Bones-TypesLong Bones-arms and legsFlat Bones-skull, ribs, sternumIrregular bones-spinal cordShort bones-cubelike bones of the tarsals and carpals

  • BonesSimple/closed fracture- break in bone that does not pierce skin

    Femur fracture

  • BonesOpen/Compound Fracture- the fractured end penetrates the skin. Possible infection.

    tibia/fibula fracture

  • Bones-InjuriesComminuted Fracture- break in bone where it is fractured in many pieces

    Tibia/fibula fracture

  • BonesGreenstick fracture-an incomplete fracture in the shaft of a bone occuring in children. Think of a childs bone as that of a young tree shoot, it bends and may break part way, but does not crack like an adults would.

  • BonesStress fracture-small incomplete break in the bone that results from overuse, weakness or biomechanical problems.

  • BonesEpiphyseal Plate Fracture-break in the bone at the growth plate. Typically in children 10-16, most often at wrist or ankle.

  • An avulsion fracture
