Book: Anatomy and Physiology I (Lumen)

In Anatomy, what is a Lumen? (with pictures)

Lumina are the spaces inside of tubular-shaped structures within the body. For example, the "open cavity" through which food travels down the esophagus to the stomach is a lumen. A lumen in anatomy can also refer to an aperture or an opening within a fixed structure, such as the circular hole in a vertebral bone through which the spinal cord courses.

One of the largest lumina in anatomy is the open space within the aorta, which is the largest vessel of the body. Blood flows from the left side of the heart through the aorta to the rest of the body. Tears in the aorta can cause serious and even life-threatening conditions. For instance, a small tear into the aorta's tunica intima, the innermost tissue layer of the blood vessel, can result in a collection of blood between the wall tissue layers called an aneurysm. An aneurysm can increase in size until either it blocks off the entire lumen of the vessel or can rupture open. The rupturing of the aorta, known as aortic dissection, can result in death.

Another example of a massive lumen is the foramen magnum, the largest aperture at the base of the skull. This bony hole is the anatomical demarcation of where the brain stem becomes the spinal cord. This is an important structure through which the transmission of nerve impulses to the body occurs. Any major swelling or increases in pressure within the skull cavity can displace the brain downward through the foramen magnum, resulting in death. This condition is known as the Arnold-Chiari malformation.

Medium-sized lumina can be represented by open cavities within the esophagus, the small intestine, the large intestine and the colon. The stomach would not normally be considered a lumen due to the bulbous shape of the organ, but technically, due to the passageway or channel-like nature of it, one could call the open space within it a lumen. The transmission of nutrients passes through the walls of the gastrointestinal tract. Perforations within this lumen can result in the need for emergency surgery.

Smaller examples of lumina include ducts and channels traveling between organs. A prime specimen of this group is the Cystic duct, which courses from the gallbladder, an organ that collects bile, to the bile duct, which empties into the duodenum at small opening in the duodenum's wall called the major duodenal papilla. This lumen allows for the passage of bile from the gallbladder to the intestines in order to help with the digestion of food.

Tiny lumina make up the majority of the lumen structures within the body. This group of lumina include the open spaces within anatomical tubes, such as arteries and veins, where blood can pass from one area of the body to the next. The tiniest of these lumina can be found in the kidney. Lumina of this size make up the glomeruli apparatuses, the extraordinarily tiny blood vessels that allow for the filtration of sodium, water and ammonia from the blood to form urine.

Anatomy Mnemonics pdf

Anatomy is the subject of structures. And human anatomy is the subject of studying and learning different structures of human body and their location and relations with other structures. Like if you are studying some particular muscle in the upper limb, you would have to learn its origin and insertion and also the arteries and nerves etc supplying that muscle. Also you would have to learn the name of structures that are related to it means the nearly by muscles, bone etc like which structure lies to its lateral, medial, anterior and posterior surfaces. Also you would have to study its surface anatomy and its diseases/disorders.

Learn all the can be done from some great book of human clinical anatomy like gray’s anatomy and snell anatomy etc. Also you would need to consult an anatomy atlas to see different structures in diagrams and pictures so that you don’t forget it.

But the problem is that, after reading all the books and using atlas you would still forget many things like branches of artery, nerve, features of some diseases etc. For this purposes mnemonics are life saving. After learning some interesting mnemonics, you would never forget these structures and their sequence. Therefore we are presenting a great book or you can say collection of anatomy mnemonics in pdf format. You can download this anatomy mnemonics pdf below using the download button, but first lets check out some of the features of this collection.

Course Description:

Biol 2401-Anatomy & Physiology I-(4-3-3) This course is the first part of a two course sequence. It is a study of the structure and function of the human body including cells, tissues and organs of the following systems: integumentary, skeletal, muscular, nervous and special senses. Emphasis is on interrealationships among systems and regulation of physiological functions involved in maintaining homeostasis.

Skills and Prerequisites:

This course has both course and skill prerequisites. The course prerequisite is that you must pass the pre-A&P Assessment Test. The skill prerequisite is skill &ldquoO." Skill O means you must have reading, writing, and math skills at ACC placement skill level 5 or above, or, you must have passed a state-approved assessment test (TASP or COMPASS) in these areas, or, you must be exempt from assessment through transcript hours from another college, or, you must have appropriate ACT, SAT, TAKS, or TASS scores.

You do not have to bring proof of your skill levels&mdashthey are provided to the instructor during the first week of classes. If you do not have the skill and course prerequisites you will have to withdraw from the class. If you do not withdraw, the instructor will withdraw you and, depending on the date, you may lose your tuition for the course.

Instructional Methodology:

This course is a modified flipped classroom, requiring internet access. Students review content online before class and then during class work with other students to complete hands-on activities, case studies, assignments, and receive guided instruction. This approach allows students to spend more time interacting with instructors and their peers. Students are expected to actively engage in collaborative learning.

Fundamental concepts will be re-emphasized throughout the course. Critical thinking skills will be taught and tested throughout the entire semester.

In general, the course will proceed as follows:


Students use a set of guided notes that they fill in while working through a chapter, either on line via Smart Book or using a hard copy of the text. The e-text has interactive activities and embedded questions. Students may repeat a chapter as many times as they want.


Instructors will often use a class response system to determine topics and concepts where students need further review or explanation. After the instructor reviews those topics and concepts, the students work in groups or individually to complete hands-on activities, concept maps, case-studies, tables, etc.


Students review and master the objectives for the module covered during the class. Mandatory review activities available on McGraw-Hill&rsquos Connect&trade and on Blackboard should be completed in order to master the material. Learning activities available at the Open Lab should also be completed on a weekly basis.

Students take a timed, graded, single-attempt, online "GRADED Lecture Quiz" over a given chapter. The dates for these graded quizzes are indicated online on the Connect course home.

Students must actively read over the lab handout. They may also review Anatomy & Physiology Revealed (APR) on Connect.

Instructors review material as needed. Students work in groups to complete the lab. Students use their Visual Analogy Guide, textbook, and online resources to complete the lab.

To master the lab objectives, students MUST attend Open Lab, and use the practice activities on APR and on Blackboard. Tutors are available to assist the students during Open Lab.

Textbooks and Supplies:

Required Book:

Anatomy & Physiology, 2th Edition by McKinley, McGraw-Hill Publishing Co WITH Connect, ISBN-9781259935596

IMPORTANT: At the ACC bookstore, make sure you buy the textbook that includes &ldquoConnect&rdquo. This website contains an electronic version of your textbook, outstanding videos and tutoring materials, and assignments that you will be required to complete as part of the course.

Recommended Book:

Visual Analogy Guide to Human Anatomyand Physiology, 2nd or 3rd edition, by Paul Krieger, Morton Publishing Co.

Required Materials:

You can buy these at the ACC bookstores or even cheaper at HEB, Home Depot, Walmart, etc.

  1. Closed-toe shoes
  2. Two or three notebook binders: 1 ½-inch three-ring binders as needed.
  3. Tab dividers as needed.
  4. Colored pencils.
  5. Access to computer or a mobile device with Internet.
  6. Lecture Exams:

The Lecture Exam dates are indicated on the Lecture/Lab Schedule which is handed out on the first day of class and posted on Blackboard.

There will be 4 Lecture Exams worth 120 pts. each. There will also be one COMPREHENSIVE MANDATORY final lecture exam that can replace the lowest lecture exam score, but not a missed exam. The comprehensive optional final exam covers course objectives across all five units.

In case your optional comprehensive final lecture exam turns out to be your lowest grade, the optional comprehensive grade will not be counted.

The Lecture Exams will usually include the following types of questions: multiple choice, drawing and labeling, ranking, fill-in-the-blank, matching, short answer, and essay. Each Lecture Exam will have 2 parts, both administered during class time: Part A: online multiple choice questions followed by Part B: questions on written paper.

These Lecture Exams will test your understanding of concepts of anatomy as well as the application of these concepts. Questions will be from lectures as well as assigned readings/activities.

I will try to grade the Lecture Exams within one week. You will have the opportunity to review, but not keep the Lecture Exam. Reviews will occur in class or in my office. Failure to return the graded Lecture Exams at the end of the review session will result in a &lsquozero&rsquo for that test.

Graded Lecture Quizzes:

The Graded Lecture Quizzes will be timed and taken online (on CONNECT), as announced in class and on the Connect course home.

There will be 15 Graded Lecture Quizzes throughout the semester. Once you submit the assignment you will receive your grade.

Each Graded Lecture Quiz will include about 15 multiple choice questions on topics and concepts listed in the objectives. These must be completed before the announced deadline. There are NO make-up Graded Lecture Quizzes.

The Lab Exam dates are indicated on the Lecture/Lab Schedule which is handed out on the first day of class and posted on Blackboard.

There will be 4 Lab Exams during the semester. Each Lab Exam is worth 50 pts.

The Anatomy portion of lab exams include identification of parts of models, specimens, slides and micrographs. The Physiology portion of the lab exams will be fill in the blank, short answer, and based on the 6 lab reports and background information. Unit 1 has the most of these reports. There will NOT be a word list or multiple choice questions.

I will try to grade the Lab Exams to you within one week. You will have the opportunity to review but not keep the Lab Exams. Reviews will occur in class or in my office. Failure to return the graded Lab Exams at the end of the review session will result in a &lsquozero&rsquo for that test.

Graded Lab Reports

The Graded Lab Reports will be due the class period following that experiment as announced on the schedule.

There will be about 6 Graded Lab Reports throughout the semester. Unit One has the highest concentration of these reports.

Lecture Reviews and Lab Reviews

You will have access to practice work on Connect to help you learn and understand the material covered in class. You can repeat these reviews as many times as you want.

Makeup Exams:

Only ONE makeup Unit Exam is permitted to any student during the semester. Makeup Exams are given on the last day of class (AFTER the optional comprehensive final exam if you choose to take that exam).

You must e-mail me BEFORE you miss a Unit Exam and you must provide appropriate documentation for your absence. Missing a Unit Exam because you &ldquoare not ready&rdquo is not a valid reason for taking a make-up exam. There are NO makeup Lab Exams. If you miss a Lab Exam, your grade on it will be a zero.

There are no retest exams. Once you take an exam, you may not take it again to try for a better grade.

Spelling must be correct on all exams (0.25 pts. will be taken off on each misspelling).

Curves and Extra Credit:

There will be NO curve on any of the exams or quizzes during the semester. There will be NO curve on any of the final course grades. Extra credit points will only be given for showing improvement on lecture exam grades. For every 10 points of improvement from one exam to the next, 5 points will be added.

Generally, fats provide about 9 kilocalories per gram and carbohydrates provide about 4 kilocalories per gram. (Using nutritional units, that is 9 Calories/gram for fats and 4 Calories/gram for carbohydrates.)"

                                These overriding trends are similar in many parts of the world, but other changes, especially over the past 10,000 years, are distinct to specific ethnic groups. “These variations are well known to forensic anthropologists,” Hawks says as he points them out: In Europeans, the cheekbones slant backward, the eye sockets are shaped like aviator glasses, and the nose bridge is high. Asians have cheekbones facing more forward, very round orbits, and a very low nose bridge. Australians have thicker skulls and the biggest teeth, on average, of any population today. “It beats me how leading biologists could look at the fossil record and conclude that human evolution came to a standstill 50,000 years ago,” Hawks says.

                                                  "We've all felt it at some point -- the ache and burn of muscle fatigue after a long run or intense workout. Conventional wisdom holds that lactic acid -- generated when physical exertion deprives our muscles of oxygen and they switch from aerobic to anaerobic means to create energy -- is to blame for the pain. Now, a report in the 20 Aug 2004 Science shows that, on the contrary, accumulation of lactic acid actually helps to maintain muscle function. Using a preparation of skinned rat skeletal muscle fibers, Pedersen et al. demonstrated that the increased acidity associated with lactic acid production decreases the activity of chloride ion channels and helps muscles maintain their electrical excitability and ability to contract. These chloride channels normally help maintain the balance of electrical signals (which also involves sodium and potassium ions) that prevents spontaneous contractions in rested muscles. An accompanying Perspective by D. Allen and H. Westerblad highlighted the report and reviewed the history of lactic acid in muscle fatigue research."

                                                  • Reflexes: The general advice Dr. Lee Weller gives to students who are just learning to demonstrate stretch reflexes is that these are best elicited when:1. the muscle being tested is relaxed
                                                    2. the muscle being tested is slightly stretched
                                                    3. the stimulus is brief and 'sharp'
                                                  • Tips on Testing Reflexes (from Marc H. Walters, M.D.) :
                                                    • Clinicians usually call these stretch reflexes the Deep Tendon Reflexes . It can help elicit the reflexes in the arms if you ask the subjects to clench their teeth. Hold the hammer loosely, letting the hammer swing (rather than holding tight and making your wrist action do the work).
                                                    • For the biceps jerk : Have the subject rest their arm in their lap with their elbow flexed grasp their elbow with your thumb directly on their biceps tendon, and hit your thumb. (Instead of my thumb, I often do it by placing my 2nd and 3rd fingers over the tendon). You often feel their tendon jerk, and may not see much elbow flexion.
                                                    • For the triceps jerk : Hold the subject's arm out to their side by supporting their brachium let their forearm dangle down. The elbow should be relaxed, at 90 degrees. (Position the arm so the triceps tendon is facing straight up). Tap on the tendon directly. To double-check that the subject is relaxed, let go of their arm: if they are relaxed, it will drop to their side. If they are tense, they'll continue to hold their arm out.For the brachioradialis: H old the subject's arm out in front of them by hanging onto their thumb only. the rest of their arm should hang relaxed. You should really feel the weight of their arm if they are relaxed. Tap your hammer onto the radial side of the forearm, which should be pointing straight up. (You don't have to be very precise with your aim). (My physical diagnosis book says to grab the patient's wrist instead of their thumb they say to support the arm in partial pronation). You see elbow flexion and supination.
                                                    • With reflexes, emphasize the importance of checking for symmetry : a herniated disc, etc. will often diminish the strength on one side and not the other.
                                                    • Use this grading scale :0 = Absent
                                                      1 = Hypoactive
                                                      2 = Normal (accept a wide range for this)
                                                      3 = Hyperactive
                                                      4 = Clonus (rhythmic contractions) -- you see these in upper motor neuron lesions such as in spinal cord injury patients -- when you test the reflex arcs whose integration centers are below the level of the injury. The injury cuts the descending, inhibitory fibers that normally keep our reflexes in check. That's the whole thing behind spastic paralysis. as opposed to flaccid paralysis, which is a lower motor neuron problem.
                                                    • Example: A C5 cord lesion would destroy the integration center for biceps jerk, but you'd see clonus in the knee and ankle jerks.

                                                      • 2) The BBB is created largely by the elaborate tight junctions between the capillary endothelial cells which form continuous-type capillaries within the brain.
                                                        • 2a) Research involving TEM demonstrates these tight junctions between the endothelial cells of the capillaries . TEM studies also demonstrate that these tight junctions are more like the tight junctions seen between epithelial cells as compared to those of endothelial cells elsewhere in the cardiovascular system.
                                                        • 3a) Research also demonstrates that the normal functioning of the tight junctions of the endothelial cells depends on the normal functioning of the astrocytes. In several brain diseases the BBB loses its effectiveness. Examination of brain tissue in these instances reveals loss of the tight junctions in the endothelial cells as well as alterations in the morphology of the astrocytes.

In this field he was among the first successful investigators to explore the new area of research with novel methods and staining techniques."

He refused to accept the glib explanation of the peculiar appearance of cells in a pancreatic section as a ‘staining artifact’ by his august Herr Professor. Systematic comparative anatomy of many animals by Langerhans established the biological significance of the islets long before the notion of endocrine secretion was in hand." Alan Magid, Ph.D.

Islets of Langerhans contain insulin producing beta cells which are of fundamental importance to diabetes research today. Also while still a medical student working in Virchow's laboratory in Berlin, in 1868 he published a description of structures in human skin, now called Langerhans' granular layer and Langerhans' stellate corpuscles. The former of these structures contains the 'Langerhans' cells' now found to be antigen presenting cells in tumor immunology."

The first semester topics include cells, cell metabolism, tissues, and the integumentary, skeletal, muscular, nervous, sensory, and endocrine systems. Dissection of preserved mammalian specimens is required.

                                                                                          If you take A&P, you need to take both semesters. The Biol 217-218 sequence is a Group I Biology Elective designed for pre-nursing, pre-physical therapy, pre-pharmacy, pre-optometry, and other pre-health students as well as students preparing for secondary school teaching in biology. Students who want the strongest preparation for medical school, dental school, or other graduate school programs in biology should select upper division biology courses including BIOL 312 (Human Physiology) instead of the Biol 217-218 sequence. Consult your academic advisor to be certain that Biol 217-218 is the best course selection for you.

                                                                                          Prerequisites: BIOL 111 and 112 (Principles of Biology I and IIand their laboratory courses) and Chem 113 (Principles of Chemistry I and lab). Students who have not achieved grades of "C" or better in each of the prerequisite courses are advised to repeat the necessary courses before attempting further coursework in biology. BIOL 217, BIOL 217L and Chem 113 and Lab are prerequisites for BIOL 218 and BIOL 218L (offered Spring semester).

                                                                                          Anatomy and physiology are two areas of study related to the human body. They provide the basis for any medical curriculum at all levels. If you plan to enroll in a health-related degree program, you must have a thorough understanding of anatomy and physiology. Whether you wish to become a nurse, or a dentist, or a medical assistant, your foundation of knowledge is based on these two core areas.Many schools and universities that specialize in healthcare medical degree programs have anatomy and physiology as introductory courses. Another reason for the significant emphasis placed upon these subjects is because medical entrance exams often test for the basic understanding of anatomy and physiology. It is important that you find an accredited anatomy and physiology textbook to prepare yourself for medical degree programs.

                                                                                          ValoreBooks is where you can find anatomy and physiology textbooks.This is one of the most convenient marketplaces where all kinds of educational textbooks and other reading sources are available for purchase.

                                                                                          A myofiber is an extraordinarily sophisticated piece of cellular machinery, but, in the end, it still only does what it is told! Each muscle cell that contracts is connected to a motor neuron. Muscles, when they contract, go whole hog, which means each cell is in an all-or-nothing mode. In order for a large muscle to have a strong contraction means that every cell in that muscle must be told to contract weaker contractions mean fewer cells contract. So how does a nerve cell tell a muscle cell to contract?

                                                                                          First, the nerve and muscle cells must make contact, yet the two cells don't actually touch. The junction between a neuron and a muscle fiber is called the neuromuscular junction (NMJ) (see Figure 8.3). The junction, just as in the junction between neurons, is called a chemical synapse, and there is always a space between the cells called a synaptic cleft.

                                                                                          Figure 8.3 The parts of a neuromuscular junction. (Michael J. Vieira Lazaroff)

                                                                                          The membranes of the two cells in a synapse are named because of the direction of the nerve impulse: the presynaptic membrane (the neurolemma) and the postsynaptic membrane (the sarcolemma). The message transmitted from the neuron to the myofiber is a chemical one called a neurotransmitter, and they work by changing the permeability of the postsynaptic membrane. This type of synapse, with a synaptic cleft, is a chemical synapse heart cells, and many nerve cells, have electrical synapses, in which the cells actually touch and travel through communicating junctions called gap junctions.

                                                                                          Neurotransmitters and Exocytosis

                                                                                          Neurotransmitters are chemical messengers that travel across the synaptic cleft between neurons and neurons, or neurons and myofibers. A neurotransmitter called acetylcholine (ACh) is used at the neuromuscular junction. Acetylcholine is initially produced in the Golgi bodies (in the cell body), and then travels down the axon to the axon terminal bud in synaptic vesicles since there is no E.R., and no Golgi bodies, in the terminal bud, the synaptic vesicles are recycled using both endocytosis, exocytosis, and mitochondria to recycle the ACh.

                                                                                          So what does it mean to change ?the permeability of the postsynaptic membrane?? To start off, have another look again at active transport. You might remember that active transport is the movement of molecules against the concentration gradient, from a low concentration to a high concentration. In this case, using a nifty little engine called the Na + /K + pump, sodium ions are kept at a high concentration in the synaptic cleft. The sarcolemma, when in this state, is considered polarized. Now remember, keeping up this membrane polarized takes energy, in the form of ATP. Ironically, this energy is used to keep the muscle relaxed.

                                                                                          At this point it is a good idea to look at what the word relaxed actually means. Most people envision relaxed as being somewhat akin to a teenager crashed on a couch, but that is nothing like relaxed muscle. Survival depends on the ability to react quickly in emergency situations, and a quick mobilization of muscles is crucial to that ability. In that sense, a relaxed muscle is a lot like a bow and arrow, with the arrow pulled back ready to be released. The bow and arrow, even though they are not moving, are primed to move quickly just like a muscle, this state also requires energy.

                                                                                          The big advantage to active transport, in this situation, is that it creates a situation in which the sarcolemma can become depolarized all the more quickly. Diffusion alone is not the fastest way to move the sodium back to a state of equilibrium. The fastest way, without a doubt, is through facilitated diffusion. Facilitated diffusion requires a channel for the sodium to pass through, but if the channel were always open it would be awfully hard to maintain active transport. There has to be a way to open and close the channel when needed. When the muscle is relaxed, the channel is closed it is only opened when the muscle cell needs to contract. It makes sense that such a channel should be kept under lock and key. The neurotransmitter is the chemical message that tells the cell to contract the neurotransmitter, a cool molecule called acetylcholine (ACh), is the key. The ACh is kept in synaptic vesicles in the axon terminal bud. When the axon receives the message, via a similar change in the polarization of the neurilemma, the synaptic vesicle fuses with the neurilemma and releases its contents (the ACh) into the synaptic cleft through exocytosis. The key has been released all the key needs now is a lock.

                                                                                          ACh, Receptors, and Facilitated Diffusion

                                                                                          All along the postsynaptic membrane, the sarcolemma, are receptors for the acetylcholine (ACh). The ACh binds with the ACh receptors, which open the channel, allowing the sodium ions to flood through the postsynaptic membrane via facilitated diffusion. Once again, the combination of active transport and facilitated diffusion makes this and depolarization incredibly fast (only two milliseconds!).

                                                                                          The only problem with this scenario is how the muscle gets relaxed again. This is easier to understand when you think about the enzyme acetylcholinesterase (ACh-esterase). When the ACh is released into the synaptic cleft, it is broken down very quickly by the acetylcholinesterase. In order to maintain a sustained contraction, the motor neuron needs to release an almost continuous supply of ACh?luckily there's a constant recycling of the neurotransmitter, or it would not be possible to contract a muscle for more than a few milliseconds!

                                                                                          My, Oh, Myogram!

                                                                                          Have you ever heard of a muscle twitch? A myogram is a graphic representation of the speed and strength of a muscle contraction (see Figure 8.4). To understand a myogram, let's start by looking at a muscle twitch. In this graph, the X-axis indicates time, and the Y-axis indicates the strength of the muscle contraction. If you look at the following figure, you will notice that a flat line indicates the relaxed muscle, and that the quick contraction and relaxation are indicated by the bell curve.

                                                                                          What you may not notice right away is the location of the stimulus by the motor neuron. If you look carefully you'll notice that the contraction does not start right after the stimulus, but that there is a delay called the latent period, before the muscle contraction actually starts. What is happening here, during the latent period? Think about it, for there are several steps, in order: exocytosis of the ACh, ACh binds to the ACh receptors, the channels open, and Na + ions flood through the newly opened channels (facilitated diffusion).

                                                                                          The rise of the curve is called the contraction period, and the decline is called the relaxation period. The relaxation period, however, is a reversal of the latent period: The ACh is broken down by the acetylcholinesterase, the ACh receptor channels close, and active transport returns the Na + ions to the synaptic cleft. So why is this period so much longer than the latent period? Remember, since active transport has to move the ions upstream, it does take longer, but also remember that facilitated diffusion is so much faster when it is preceded by active transport!
