    I was up all night last night studying for my lab midterm today (we only have two tests in lab -- the midterm and final, so each one counts for 15% of our grade).

    It paid off!! I got the ONLY A in my class! Wahooooooo! Time to par-tay!

    (And then start studying for my lecture test ::lol:: )

    Hehe -- Thanks!

    I had plans to have an 'adult beverage' to celebrate last night, but I was so tired I passed out after Grey's Anatomy.

    Hey everyone! I am also in A&P II this semester. I am absolutely loving it!!! We have 7 lecture exams an d 2 lab exams. So far, we have had 2 lecture and 1 lab. I made a 95.2 on the Cardiovascular test, a 100 on the Blood test and a 101.7 on the 1st lab practical. We have a test Monday on the Lymphatics and immune system. I feel really good about it.

    I'm a bit overwhelmed right now because it seems like all my instructors scheduled their exams at the same time, lol. I am also taking Microbiology, Principles of Nutrition, Spanish II, and Health, First Aid, and Safety. I am also a scholarship tutor at my campus. So, with all that, 3 children ages 7 and under and a house on the market, I'm surprised I am not sitting in a corner being spoon-fed baby food, lol.

    I am applying for the nursing program in Fall 07. I wanted to start in the spring but it is a nights/weekends program and there is no way I can do it. My husband's schedule is too erratic. Oh well, It'll come soon enough.

    Anyhow, I look forward to going through A&P II with ya'll!!!!!

    I wonder how you do all that!!! You must have energy galore. I know you will do great in nursing school. Wish the rest of us luck, ok :wink2: I am struggling through 2 classes to keep A's and I dont have small children. My daughter is 15 and very self sufficient. I had better go and hit the books now. We have an exam Monday and a veins/arteries exam on Wednesday.
    Anyway, we are glad you posted.

    HA HA! Not hardly! Maybe my mom does, though. SHe's given me some pretty good tips and a great foundation for being able to handle heavy loads.

    I'm studying for my lymphatics and immunity test now. Does anyone have a decent explanation of haptans and chemotaxis?
  9. by   lisabeth
    I just remember that haptiens are molecules that are too small and cant illicit the allergic reaction without some other larger molecule to assist it. The way I understand Chemotaxis is the process of destroying foreign antigens by rupturing their membranes to render them harmless. Anyone else have a better explanation?

    Thank you! I have that haptans are too small to cause a response unless bound to a host protein. Which is pretty much how you explained it, but he also has something about poison ivy and penicillin. Would those be examples of haptans?

    In Chemotaxis, he mentions concentration gradient and I can't remembet exact relationship.
  11. by   lisabeth
    Well, I must say that my explanation was kind of sloppy. I have been studying all day for the same exam, but ours is over 3 chapters. That one, and the digestive system plus the respiratory system. I wish we would have a test after every chapter like you do. There is so much information even in one chapter to learn. I think everyone would do better if it were one chapter at a time.
    What I remember about chemotaxis is it is a part of activating the complement process and what I meant to say was that it ruptured the membrane which renders them harmless. :imbar Am I totally lost??? My explanation is what I read from my chapter. I went back and looked again to make sure I was telling it right. I didnt read anything in my book about concentration gradient, but I'm not saying your instructor is wrong. I am just saying I didnt see anything about that. My test is tomorrow, so I hope I am not totally lost on the subject. Someone help!!!!

    Ok, from what I can gather (without all the scientific jargon, lol)...

    Because of an existing concentration gradient, chemical agents can draw leukocytes to the site of the damage to fight infections and clean up afterwards.

    Does that make sense? LOL
  13. by   lisabeth
    Yes, it does. :spin: Thank you. It makes more sense now. My brain is nearly dead at this moment. I hope I get a good night sleep tonight. I probably should have gone back and read the previous paragraphs. Wish me luck tomorrow. I will try those new study tips on the next chapters. Maybe I will understand them all better.
