What is the Centre line of the body called?
The midsagittal (median) plane is in the midline through the center of the body, and all other sagittal planes are parallel to it. The coronal plane (frontal or Y-X plane) divides the body into dorsal and ventral (back and front) portions. It also separates the anterior and posterior portions.
How is the Midclavicular line defined?
Medical Definition of midclavicular line: an imaginary line parallel to the long axis of the body and passing through the midpoint of the clavicle on the ventral surface of the body.
What does left mid axillary line mean?
mid ·ax·il·lar·y line An imaginary division halfway between the anterior axillary line and the posterior axillary line, passing through the apex of the axilla. Synonym(s): median axillary line [TA].
What are the 5 body planes?
Anatomical Planes of the Body
|Coronal Plane or Frontal Plane|
|Sagittal Plane or Lateral Plane|
|Axial Plane or Transverse Plane|
What are the 5 regions of the body?
The human body is roughly apportionable into five big regions: head, neck, torso, upper extremity and lower extremity.
Why is Midclavicular line important?
Clinical significance It is useful for evaluating hepatomegaly and identifying heart sounds, as well as finding the gallbladder. (The gallbladder is at the intersection of the midclavicular line and the transpyloric plane.)
What is the normal standard calibration?
The standard calibration is 10 mm (10 small boxes), equal to 1 mV. On occasion, particularly when the waveforms are small, double standard is used (20 mm equals 1 mv). When the wave forms are very large, half standard may be used (5 mm equals 1 mv).
What is the Midclavicular line used for?
An imaginary median line used to describe locations on the trunk.
What is a line in anatomy?
1. The connection between two points. 2. In anatomy, a long narrow band or streak that is distinct from the surrounding tissues by colour or texture.
How many lines do we have in our body?
The human body has three primary lines of defense to fight against foreign invaders, including viruses, bacteria, and fungi. The immune system’s three lines of defense include physical and chemical barriers, non-specific innate responses, and specific adaptive responses.
What is axillary line and its types?
The axillary lines are the anterior axillary line, midaxillary line and the posterior axillary line. The anterior axillary line is a coronal line on the anterior torso marked by the anterior axillary fold. The posterior axillary line is a coronal line on the posterior torso marked by the posterior axillary fold.
Where is the 5th intercostal space?
An apex below the axilla/the base of the axilla superiorly. The lateral border of pectoralis major. The anterior border of latissimus dorsi. A base line superior to the horizontal level of the nipple (the line of the fifth intercostal space ).
How are axillary lines drawn?
The posterior axillary line is an imaginary line on the posterior torso marked by the posterior axillary fold (which is a compound structure consisting of the latissimus dorsi and teres major muscles). It is drawn along the posterior axillary fold and followed down the chest wall.
What is a axilla?
The axilla is an anatomical region under the shoulder joint where the arm connects to the shoulder. It contains a variety of neurovascular structures, including the axillary artery, axillary vein, brachial plexus, and lymph nodes.
