Ms. Sue I'm REALLY having trouble with those question in my science homework.

b. A man has a blood clot in his Femoral artery. Where is the clot?

c. Where would a nurse take your radial pulse?

E. How is the structure of a bone related to its function?
Use one example in your answer

some words in the wiki are confusing
we didn't learn much of this in class (FIRST 2 QUESTIONS)
the last one we kind of did but im struggling

  • To Ms. Sue - ,

    for letter c

    i check on the wiki again and found this

    The radial artery arises from the bifurcation of the brachial artery in the cubital fossa. It runs distally on the anterior part of the forearm. There, it serves as a landmark for the division between the anterior and posterior compartments of the forearm, with the posterior compartment beginning just lateral to the artery. The artery winds laterally around the wrist, passing through the anatomical snuff box and between the heads of the first dorsal interosseous muscle. It passes anteriorly between the heads of the adductor pollicis, and becomes the deep palmar arch, which joins with the deep branch of the ulnar artery.

    Along its course, it is accompanied by a similarly named vein, the radial vein.

    i think the nurse put this thing around your hand or something and click something ..... something like that

  • To Ms. Sue - ,

    i don't know where the clot is in the femoral artery

    we didn't learn this

    btw - i check on the wiki but too confusing

  • To Ms. Sue - ,

    I agree. The wiki paragraph you posted is hard to understand.

    Femoral artery --

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Femoral_artery

  • To Ms. Sue - ,

    btw - i check on the "wiki" but too confusing

    WIKI = WIKIPEDIA!
    it don't provide that much info

    i found this:

    The femoral artery is a general term comprising a few large arteries in the thigh. They begin at the inguinal ligament (femoral head) and end just above the knee at adductor canal or Hunter's canal traversing the extent of the femur bone.

    The femoral artery is divided into three parts: The common femoral artery which divides into the deep femoral artery (a.k.a. Profunda), which provides blood to the thigh, and the superficial femoral artery, which provides blood to the arteries that circulate the knee and foot.

    i found this on the site (letter c)

    Why do you need to take your pulse?

    Your caregiver may want you to check your pulse because of an illness, such as heart disease. Some medicines you may be taking can change your pulse rate.

    How to take a radial (ra-d-ull) pulse:

    The radial artery is found close to the inside part of your wrist near your thumb. You will need a watch with a second hand to count your pulse. The following steps may help you take your radial pulse.
    •Bend your elbow with your arm at your side. The palm of your hand should be up.


    •Using your middle (long) and index (pointer) fingers, gently feel for the radial artery inside your wrist. You will feel the radial pulse beating when you find it. Do not use your thumb to take the pulse because it has a pulse of its own.








    •Count your radial pulse for a full minute (60 seconds). Notice if your pulse has a strong or weak beat.


    •Write down your pulse rate, the date, time, and what wrist (right or left) was used to take the pulse. Also write down anything you notice about your pulse, such as it being weak, strong, or missing beats.


    •The radial artery is an easy artery to use when checking your heart rate during or after exercise.

  • To Ms. Sue - ,

    So -- where is your radial pulse found?

  • To Ms. Sue - ,

    The radial artery is found close to the inside part of your wrist near your thumb.

  • To Ms. Sue - ,

    Right!!

  • To Ms. Sue - ,

    ok then that's my answer

    thanks

    BUT --- i still need help with:

    b. A man has a blood clot in his Femoral artery. Where is the clot?

    AND

    E. How is the structure of a bone related to its function?
    Use one example in your answer

  • To Ms. Sue - ,

    Laruen -- Please read the first sentence in the Wikipedia article for the location of the femoral artery.

    Our legs have strong and sturdy bones to support our weight.

  • To Ms. Sue - ,

    The femoral artery is a general term comprising a few large arteries in the thigh.

    so it's in our thigh

    btw - Our legs have strong and sturdy bones to support our weight. (is that's the answer for letter E?)

  • To Ms. Sue - ,

    Right.
