Sample flash cards in this set:
|What are the layers of the Skin?||1. The Epidermis 2. The Dermis 3. The Subcutaneous|
|What are the 5 layers of the Epidermis?||1. Cornified 2. Transluscent 3. Granular 4. Spinous 5. Germinal or Basal|
|The Epidermis is...||The outer layer, which consists of 5 layers.|
|The Cornified layer is...||The outermost layer (thinnest), & has no cellular structure.|
|The Translucent layer is...||Made up of flat cells, which have no nuclei or outlines.|
|The Granular layer is...||The cells contain granuals & they represent early degeneration.|
|The Spinous layer have...||Cells w/many sides & they represent early degeneration.|
|The Germinal or Basal layer is...||The deepest of the Epidermis & the cells continue to divide. They contain Keratin & Melonin.|
|The Dermis/Corium or True Skin have 2 receptors...||1. Pacinian Corpuscle - Deep pressure. 2. Meissner's Corpuscle - Light Touch.|
|What are the 2 layers of the Dermis?||1. Papillary 2. Reticular|
|What is Papillary?||Is next to the Epidermis, & has nipple projections of Germinal Cells that fit into the pits of the Papulla. (Fingerprints)|
