A&P II Club, 2007 - page 5

Hello everyone, I thought I'd go ahead and start a thread for A&P II. Does anyone know if there's a process to request a thread being made sticky? Has anyone been getting a jump start on... Read More

    Once you learn the names, you pretty much know where their located;

    Tricuspid/ right AV Valve
    Mitral/ left AV Valve

    I learned this in A&P 1... try to visualize the picture of the heart and the valves.

    Thanks sillinursin for the reply, I was thinking my post might get lost in the sea of A&P II questions, I got the names and location down, maybe my question was worded a bit wrong lol....excuse my fried brains! but maybe I can ask you (or anyone who has some experience and uses the words in their job already) you know how the left AV is the bicuspid is the mitral right well which name should I use should I use "left AV Valve" or "Bicuspid Valve" or "Mitral Valve" which one will we be using more as nurses say if a pt. had a problem or we were referring to this particular valve. My prof said that most nurses use "bicuspid/tricuspid" but bio geeks use "Left AV" or "Right AV".

    for those of you doing the heart.....how are you learning your right and left av valves? are you calling them right av valve, and left av valve respectively or tricuspid, bicuspid or are any of you using mitrovalve? what will be using in the hospitals?
    i don't know what they will use in the hospital. but in our lab we are learning them by calling them tricuspid, and bicuspid valves. i am really enjoying the heart it is so much fun. good luck to you.umpiron:

    Hello everyone This is my first post here, but I'm also in A&P II right now. We are studying the endocrine system. Today was the posterior pituitary/ADH, etc. It was a very long afternoon!
    I am planning to mail in my application to the nursing program tomorrow and I'm crossing my fingers that I get in for this fall!
    Good luck to everyone else out there studying their butts off for this class!

    Question:

    Olfactory receptors
    A) are second-order, multi-polar neurons
    B) are also called basal cells
    C) use olfactory hairs to transduce chemical signals from odorants.
    D) A & B
    E) A, B & C

    OK- I swear it's a trick question.

    A) From what I have researched, they are bipolar neurons (but does this mean multi-polar as well)? I am unsure about the second-order?
    B) basal cells are located in the lowest cellular layer of the olfactory epithelium which are capable of mitotic cell division to form olfactory receptor neurons (but are they considered/called the same thing)?
    C) Olfactory hairs, also known as nose hairs, are cilia, hair-like protrusions that can receive an impulse from outside the body and change it to a nerve impulse, that protrude to the center of the nasal cavity. (but I also read that it's not the olfactory hairs, but the olfactory neurons)

    If our prof didn't try and teach from 4 different books then maybe this wouldn't be so difficult. At this point, I am not sure what to answer!

    Any suggestions folks?

    According to my book, olfactory receptors and basal cells are two distinct types of cells. That eliminates B, D, and E. They are bipolar which is not the same thing as multipolar (that's in our intro to the nervous system chapter). Second-order neurons are intreneurons, so that can't be right either. That should eliminate A. My book also doesn't mention the exact term "hair cells," except when talking about hearing, but that's the only one left. Correct me if I'm wrong?

    OK - that was what I had deducted also. I was uncertain if bipolar was the same as multipolar. And I am not certain if olfactory hairs means the cilia or the actual nasal hairs. I am going to email the instructor to see if she can clarify. Thanks so much for the reply - I appreciate it!

    Hi Desert Rain, More than likely they'll call it Mitral Valve and Tricuspid. There are diagnosis' of Mitral Valve Prolapse, etc... Like I said, once you learn it you'll remember both names.. Dont worry so much... you could also email me too.

    I used these websites as references. they were great help in simplified explanations and visual tools.

    in the search field type "2402" and it should direct you to A&P2. Click on the course number and it will take you to the page with all the PPTs (Marieb).

    Let me know if you have problems.

    I got a B in ANPI and am worried it is going to keep me out of the nursing program at Ivy Tech. I am so bummed. I got a 64 on my lab exam this week in ANPII. I feel like I am not going to make it.

    Cathie,

    I just said that because I have heard some pretty ridiculous comments from students, like, "I don't want anyone working on me that got below a 90 in this class." :icon_roll Hehe.

    With my 80 in A&P I, I can name all the bones, muscles (ones we were required to learn - 95 of them) and look at a tissue slide and tell you where it came from and the type of tissue it is. I am not worried about it. :wink2:

    Well, not the topic, but my class and professor. Too much to get into detail really. Let's just say the class holds 24 and started with that many...well we are in week 5 and are down to just 11 students. Over half the class has dropped! It's really aweful. I feel like I have little chance to learn all that I need to. We are into week 5 and she is still going over the endocrine system. According to the syllabus we should have been done with that at week 2. Week 5 we should be finishing the cardiovascular system! We haven't even began! We got our first tests back tonight (spec senses and endocrine). Well she made us all sit in class and lab and write essays (5 in all) over material we just tested on.What's the deal! I got a 100 on the lab test and an 88 on the Lecture, I don't need to keep going over the material, let's move on.

    Anyway, just wanted to vent.

    She is making me LOVE Micro and Stats!!!! Hahaha. At least I don't dread those classes - they are a fresh breeze after AP2.

    Yikes...sorry your class is not going well. I was not able to get into the Saturday class this semester and I am thinking God that it was full...I love my M/W teacher and my friends who are in the Saturday class speak of their teacher like you...they are miserable.
    She gives pop quizzes on the material that she just lectured on..yikes.

    I am really enjoying my teacher this semester. He is very fast paced, but very practical and is always throwing out helpful things to help you remember his concepts. They are silly things but really help...such as Arteries - (A) is for (taking blood) Away from the heart.

    We just finished up the Cardivascular system and the circulatory system and are starting on the Lymphatic system tonight. We get our second exam back tonight and I am dying to know how I did. I know I missed 3 questions out of 40...I just hope I did not miss any of the other questions.
