Study Notes

Anatomy and Physiology

  • Anatomy is the study of the gross structure of the body and the interrelations of its parts.
  • Physiology is the science and study of the vital processes, mechanisms, and functions of an organ or system.
  • Kinesiology is the scientific study of muscular activity and the anatomy, physiology, and mechanics of body movement.
  • Pathology is the study of the structural and functional changes caused by disease.

Health and Wellness

  • A disease is an abnormal and unhealthy state of all or part of the body, or its systems or organs, wherein it is incapable of carrying on its normal function.
  • A symptom is subjective evidence of disease or bodily disorder; a clear message to the organism that something is wrong.
  • A systemic infection is when invading organisms have spread throughout the body.
  • Signs of inflammation include swelling, heat, loss of range of motion, redness, and pain.
  • Fever is often a warning sign of an infection.

Body Systems

  • The skeletal system provides the framework for the body, protects vital organs, and supports movement.
  • The muscular system is responsible for movement and maintaining posture, and consists of around 650 muscles.
  • The nervous system is the body's control center, responsible for coordinating all activities.
  • The cardiovascular system transports nutrients and oxygen to cells and removes waste products.
  • The respiratory system allows us to breathe, taking in oxygen and expelling carbon dioxide.
  • The digestive system breaks down food into nutrients that can be absorbed and used for energy and growth.
  • The endocrine system regulates various body functions, such as growth, metabolism, and reproduction.
  • The immune system protects the body from infection and disease.
  • The urinary system eliminates waste products and regulates body fluid balance.
  • The reproductive system allows us to reproduce and continue our species.
  • The integumentary system protects the body from external damage and maintains body temperature.
  • The lymphatic system helps protect the body from infection and disease.

Massage and Wellness

  • Massage has direct effects on tissues that are being touched or manipulated, such as enhanced local circulation of venous blood and lymph.
  • A scar is a dense fibrous tissue that forms as an injury, wound, burn, or sore heals.
  • Zero on the wellness scale means there is no perceivable sickness.

Medical Terminology

  • Greek and Latin are source languages for medical terminology.
  • A prefix is one or more syllables added in front of the stem to further its meaning.
  • Examples of prefixes include contra (against, counter to) and -algia (pain, painful condition).
  • Cervix means neck.
