Applicable Clinical Terms Definitions
Abdomen: That portion of the body that lies between the THORAX and the PELVIS.
Heart: The hollow, muscular organ that maintains the circulation of the blood.
Joints: Also known as articulations, these are points of connection between the ends of certain separate bones, or where the borders of other bones are juxtaposed.
Lung: Either of the pair of organs occupying the cavity of the thorax that effect the aeration of the blood.
Peritoneal Cavity: The space enclosed by the peritoneum. It is divided into two portions, the greater sac and the lesser sac or omental bursa, which lies behind the STOMACH. The two sacs are connected by the foramen of Winslow, or epiploic foramen.
Pleural Cavity: Paired but separate cavity within the THORACIC CAVITY. It consists of the space between the parietal and visceral PLEURA and normally contains a capillary layer of serous fluid that lubricates the pleural surfaces.
