Fractures

Here is a lesson in anatomy.

BONES of BODY
  1. posterior right first rib
  2. distal left clavicle
  3. left scapula
  4. left rib
  5. left rib
  6. left rib
  7. left acetabulum...
  8. ...extending into left superior pubic ramus
  9. comminuted fracture of distal humerus
  10. comminuted fracture of midshaft femur
  11. comminuted fracture of midshaft left radius
  12. comminuted fracture of  midshaft left ulna
  13. right distal radius
  14. sternum
  15. comminuted fracture of patella
FACIAL BONES
  1. comminuted fracture of ethmoid sinuses
  2. comminuted fracture of  ventral walls of sphenoid sinuses
  3. acute comminuted fracture of medial and lateral wall of left orbit
  4. acute fracture of base of right pterygoid
  5. complex comminuted fracture of right temporal bone
  6. dorsal walls of sphenoid sinuses
  7. clivus, extending to left occipital condyle
  8. left occipital condyle
  9. anterior wall of right maxillary antrum
  10. nasal septum
  11. left zygomatic arch
  12. pterygoid plates, bilaterally
  13. comminuted fracture of left facial bone
  14. 2 teeth

(comminuted means shattered)

condyle- lowest bone of skull before vertebra
scapula- shoulder blade
sternum- chestbone
clavicle- collarbone
femur- thighbone
humerus- upper arm
radius/ulna- lower arm
patella- kneecap
acetabulum- hip
pubic ramus- pelvis

  1. Today's homeschool science lesson: Make a chart that shows the location of all these bones. With the new vocab and the fractures, James could become an unit study.

  3. The human bone (especially the femur) is about 4 times stronger than concrete. A cubic inch of bone can bear a load of 19,000lbs (over 8.6 tons). (http://infographicable.com/2013/01/18-amazing-facts-about-the-human-body/)
