Summary: Anatomy is the science of animals and people's structure. This study focuses on learning the minuscule cells of the complete organism. There are two types of anatomy; gross and microscopic (histology). In understanding the body's structure, anatomist has two approaches, regional and systemic anatomy. A person who studies anatomy is known as an anatomist. Mastering anatomy study is a necessity for people who want to continue their studies in the medical field.
What is Anatomy?
You might recognize The Grey's Anatomy as one of the popular medical series in the United States. However, do you know what anatomy is? According to American Association for Anatomy, anatomy is the science of animal and people's structure. This study focuses on learning the minuscule cells of the complete organism. It is knowledge about blood vessels, organs, skeletons, and nerves. There are two types of anatomy gross anatomy and histology (microanatomy).
A person who studies anatomy is known as an anatomist. Anatomist has an essential role in understanding the construction and structure of the organism. It has a significant impact on medical advancement, as it will help doctor to save many people's lives. Anatomists work with researchers to find discoveries that will be taught to young doctors and other medical professionals (nurses, physical therapists, dentists and veterinarians). Anatomists divide the body structures into ten (10) parts:
- Skeletal (bones, cartilage and joints)
- Muscular (muscle)
- Nervous (brain, spinal cord and nerves)
- Respiratory (lungs, nose, trachea and breathing tubes)
- Cardiovascular (heart and blood vessels)
- Lympathic (lymph vessels and drain organs)
- Endocrine (pancreas, liver, testes, glands and ovaries)
- Male and Female Reproductive Systems (uterus, clitoris, penis)
- Urinary (kidneys and bladder)
- Digestive (mouth, stomach, intestines and anus)
What are the Types of Anatomy?
Anatomy is the branch study of biology, and it focuses on identifying the physical structures of the living organism. The term "anatomy" comes from the Greek words "remain", which means "to cut" or "to dissect". There are two types of anatomy; gross and microscopic (histology). In simple words, gross anatomy means studying the large body's structures. Large structures are parts of the body that are visible to the bare eye. Muscles, bones, digestive organs and skin are examples of large structures. The anatomist can learn about them through a dead body (cadaver). They can also study the structures by cutting them apart (dissections).
Microscopic anatomy is the study to learn about the tiniest structure of the organism's body. The researcher of this anatomy study utilizes a microscope to analyze the small elements (tissues, cells and molecules). The challenge of this anatomy is the limited equipment to examine the structures. The process of studying tissue using simple dissecting microscopes is known as histology. Even more, the study of tinier elements (cells) is cytology. Cytology also investigates organelles and their molecules.
What are the Approaches to Study Anatomy?
In understanding the body's structure, anatomist has two approaches, regional and systemic anatomy. The regional study is the strategy to learn anatomy by dividing the body into some regions (abdomen, thorax, upper limb and more) and finding the relationship between one another. The anatomist will identify the system in each part to provide the context of how each part of the body is one complete system. Meanwhile, systemic anatomy is the knowledge to study the body system. In this approach, the anatomist divides the body system into eleven (lymphatic, respiratory, digestive, urinary, male reproductive, female reproductive, integumentary, skeletal, muscular, nervous, endocrine and cardiovascular). Even though each system has a particular function, they are connected and work in tandem to keep the body alive.
Why Should We Learn Anatomy?
Introducing the anatomy study to children is essential since it will prepare the students if they want to take the professional route. Anatomy has a significant role in the medical field since it can save many lives and give second chances to others. Mastering this study is a necessity for people who want to continue their studies in the medical field. In the former time, people engage simple anatomy by observing injuries. In the upcoming years, they started to learn through the dead body and in recent times, people can study the anatomy of a living organism using computer technology. Anatomist spends their time studying anatomy, which will help doctors and other people in the medical profession in providing appropriate care for every injury and disease.
What are the Five Vital Organs of Humans?
Every part of our body is precious. However, there are five vital of the human body that we need to protect with extra care. Those five body parts are the brain, heart, kidneys, liver and lungs. The brain is the primary administrator of the body. It produces, sends and develops nerves, thoughts, emotions, physical perceptions and more. The skull protects the mushy and fragile brain from any injury. The brain consists of three essential elements, the cerebrum, cerebellum and brainstem. The heart is the essential organ for the blood circulatory system since it sends blood to every nook of the body. It works in tandem with the lungs to inject oxygen into the blood. The lungs are also the primary organ for the human respiratory system because it filters the air we inhale. The liver is the organ that changes the nutrients from the meal to be a beneficial substance. It also filters toxins from our bodies. Lastly, the kidneys are a pair of organs which help the body filter blood and take out the waste from the human body.
