Anatomy & Physiology Revealed® (APR)
includes cadaver photos that allow you
to peel away layers of the human body to
reveal structures beneath the surface. This program also includes
animations, radiologic imaging, audio pronunciations, and practice
quizzing. Check out

ANATOMY & PHYSIOLOGY REVEALED
OUTCOMES 4.5, 11.5
1. In planning treatment for a patient who has had a
cerebrovascular accident (CVA), why would it be important
to know whether the CVA was caused by a ruptured or
obstructed blood vessel?
OUTCOMES 7.6, 7.7, 11.2, 11.3
2. If a physician plans to obtain a sample of spinal fl
uid from
a patient, what anatomical site can be safely used, and how
should the patient be positioned to facilitate this procedure?
OUTCOMES 11.4, 11.5
3. What functional losses would you expect to observe in a
patient who has suffered injury to the right occipital lobe of
the cerebral cortex? To the right temporal lobe?
INTEGRATIVE ASSESSMENTS/CRITICAL THINKING
OUTCOMES 11.4, 11.5
4. The Brown-Seguard syndrome is due to an injury on one
side of the spinal cord. It is characterized by paralysis below
the injury and on the same side as the injury, and by loss of
sensations of temperature and pain on the opposite side. How
would you explain these symptoms?
OUTCOMES 11.4, 11.6
5. The biceps-jerk refl
ex employs motor neurons that exit from
the spinal cord in the 5th spinal nerve (C5), that is, F
fth from
the top of the cord. The triceps-jerk refl
ex involves motor
neurons in the 7th spinal nerve (C7). How might these refl
exes
be used to help locate the site of damage in a patient with a
neck injury?
OUTCOME 11.7
6. What symptoms might the sympathetic division of the
autonomic nervous system produce in a patient experiencing
stress?
