  4. Endocrinal, Urinary, and Genital Systems.
  5. Life Support Chain.

Core Concepts covered :

  • Anatomy and Body Functions.
  • Standard Anatomic Terms.
  • Body Systems.
  • Life Support Chain – Fundamental Elements and Issues Impacting them.

An Excerpt from the course on Anatomy And Physiology

The lymphatic system supports the circulatory and immune systems. While this system is responsible for the production of a substance called lymph, which is a thin and straw-colored fluid that carries nutrients and oxygen to cells and takes waste products away from them. It also helps the body to get rid of toxins and other harmful materials.

It consists of lymph, lymphatic vessels to carry them, and the lymphatic organs that include lymph nodes, tonsils, spleen, and thymus.

Lymph nodes are small bean-shaped structures that are usually less than 2.5 cm in length. They are widely distributed throughout the body along the lymphatic pathways where they filter the lymph before it is returned to the blood.

Tonsils are clusters of lymphatic tissue just under the mucous membranes that line the nose, mouth, and throat. They protect harmful substances and pathogens that may enter the body through the nose or mouth.
