Types of bone
Shapes and size

* diaphysis - shaft
* medullary cavity - filled with yellow bone marrow(adipose)
* epiphysis (end)
* endosteum
* periosteum - dense irregular conn tiss.
* compact bone
* spongy (cancellous) bone with red bone marrow and trabeculae
Types of bone

include tarsals and carpals
Types of bone

- Flat
* Tables of compact bone
* Diploe - type of spongy bone
* include ribs and head bones
Types of bone

* vertebrae, some facial - same look as flat
Types of bone
* Osscles - tiny irregular bone such as auditary bone

* Sesamoid - bone in tendons ex. knee cap
Functions of Skeletal System
1. Protection
2. Support
3. Lever for movement
4. hemopoiesis - RBM of spongybone, mostly erythropoieses
5. Mineral storage - calcium phosphorus
Functions of Skeletal System

Hormones involved
* Parathormone (parathyroid hormone) in thyroid - stimulates osteoclast to breakdown bone (osteoblasts make bone)

* Calcitonin - inhibits osteoclast (decreases Ca absorbtion and lowers blood Ca)

* when osteoclast breakdown bone, it increases Ca reabsorbtion in blood and high blood Ca
Bone Tissue

* Osterblast - synthesize matrix
* osteocutes - sit in lacuna
* osteoclast - breakdown bone
Bone Tissue

Made up of:
* 2/3 organic salts - especially Ca salts
* 1/3 organic collagen

- Intramenbranous
* Flat bones of the skull
* mesenchyme - undifferentiated conn tissue will start making osteoblasts
* osteoblasts - start making bone matrix as tuberculie

- Intracartilagionous or Endochondral
* for most bones of the body
* hyaline cartilage
* Primary ossification center - where bone 1st starts to form
* epiphysis
* epiphyseal discs - bands of cartilage, growth in this region is stimulated by growth hormone
* diaphysis
* secondary ossification center
* epiphyseal lines - where epiphysis met diaphysis, no cartilage

Fibrous Joints
* dense conn. tissue btw the bones
* interms of movement, most are synarthroses(immovable)
a. sysnostosis - sutures of the skull, as bones matures you loose most conn tissue in btw
b. syndesmosis - held together by ligament, ex btw ulna & radius

Fibrous joints
* Gomphosis - bolt shape
* the joint btw the root of the tooth and maxilla or mandible
* periodontal membrane or ligament around tooth

Cartilaginous Joints
* most are amphiarthroses (semi-movable)
A. synchondrosis - hyaline cartilage, ex. ribs to sternum

B. symphysis - fibrocartilage, ex. centrum of vert. to other centrum, pubis to pubis

Synovial Joints
* freely movable
* have synovial fluid that provides lubrication for movement
Synovial Joints (diarthroses)

-Angular Movement
a. flexion - to decrease the angle btw two bones
b. extension - to increase angle btw 2 bones
c. abduction - move a body part away from midline
d. adduction - moving toward midline of body
Synovial Joints

- Circular movements
a. circumduction - to discribe a circle with the distal end of an extremity

b. rotation - to twist on center axis
* supination - lateral thumbs out
* pronation - medial thumbs in
