2.  IDENTIFY THE FOLLOWING GLAND: Produce cerumen Found in external auditory canalKeeps foreign particles and insects out of auditory canal
3.  IDENTIFY THE FOLLOWING GLANDS: Oil-producingEmpty sebum into hair follicleFunctionsIncrease pliability and softness of skin and hairLimit evaporative water lossInhibit bacterial growth
4.  IDENTIFY THE FOLLOWING SUDORIFEROUS GLAND:  •Empty secretion into hair follicle •Located in axillary and genital regions •Activate at puberty •Milky sweat due to proteins and fats •Odorless –BO due to bacterial decomposition
5.  NAME THE TISSUE THE EPIDERMIS IS MADE UP OF?
6.  NAME THE FIVE MAJOR FUNCTIONS OF THE SKIN IN ALPHABETICAL ORDER:
7.  NAME THE TWO TYPES OF TISSUES THAT MAKES UP THE HYPODERMIS:
8.  WHAT DETERMINES THE RATE OF MELANIN PRODUCTION
9.  WHAT IS ANOTHER NAME FOR SUDORIFEROUS GLAND?
10.  NAME THE MUSCLE THAT CAUSE THE FOLLOWING ACTION:  •Contracts and raises the hair in the follicle on end •Causes “goose bumps”
11.  IDENTIFY THE DEFINITION:  •Form from epidermis that grows inward into the dermis
12.  WHERE IS THE HYPODERMIS LOCATED
A.
B.
C.
D.
E.
13.  NAME THIS PART OF THE HAIR?  •Contains the hair root •Bulb of follicle is site of new hair growth –Nourished by dermal papillae •New cells from bulb become part of the root
14.  WHAT IS THE HAIR FORMED BY:
15.  NAME THE THREE TYPES OF SKIN PIGMENTS:
16.  WHAT CELLS IS THE NAIL MADE UP OF?
17.  TRUE OR FALSE:  •Hair is found over most of the body –No hair on soles, palms, nipples, lips, and parts of external genitalia
18.  NAME THE THREE STRUCTURES OF THE NAIL:
19.  NAME TWO FUNCTIONS OF THE NAIL?
20.  WHAT PIGMENT IS RESPONSIBLE FOR SKIN COLOR:
21.  IN WHAT AREAS IS THE SKIN THINNEST.  (SELECT ALL THAT APPLIES)
A.
B.
C.
D.
E.
22.  IDENTIFY THIS PART OF THE SKIN:  –Composed of fibrous connective tissue •Collagen: strength and toughness •Elastic fibers: extensibility and elasticity
23.  NAME TWO IMPORTANT FUNCTIONS OF THE DERMAL PAPILLAE BLOOD VESSELS
24.  NAME THE TWO PARTS OF THE HAIR:
25.  WHAT IS ANOTHER NAME FOR THE HYPODERMIS?
26.  NAME THE THREE TYPES OF INTEGUMENTARY GLANDS

28.  WHEN THERE IS AN ACCUMILATION OF MELANIN AT ONE SITE THIS CAUSES:
29.  NAME THE TWO MAJOR LAYERS OF THE SKIN?
30.  NAME THIS LAYER OF THE SKIN?  •Outermost layer •Numerous layers of dead, flat, keratinized cells •Constantly sloughed off and replaced –It takes approximately two weeks for new cell to complete their journey through the epidermis
31.  NAME THE PART OF THE SKIN THAT PROVIDES THESE FUNCTIONS?  Serves as a boundary Protects the body against Entrance of pathogens Ultraviolet radiationExcessive water loss
32.  NAME THE LAYER OF THE EPIDERMIS:  –Innermost layer of epidermis –Site of mitotic cell division –New cells move from the stratum basale towards the surface –As cells move they form distinctive layers in the epidermis •Cells acquire keratin as they migrate through the epidermal layers
33.  IDENTIFY THE FOLLWING SWEAT GLAND:  •Occur all over the body •Secrete sweat onto skin surface directly •Cleary, watery perspiration •Activated with increase in body temperature •Functions to cool the body
34.  NAME THE PART OF THE SKIN THAT PERFORMS THESE FUNCTIONS?  •Attaches skin to underlying tissues and organs •Site for subcutaneous injections •Site of white blood cell action •Heat insulator •Fat storage •Conserve body heat and retards penetration of external heat
