Discover the Human Body
The word Anatomy comes from the ancient Greek word Anatomē, which means “dissection”. This branch of medicine studies the structural organisation of the human body and its parts, organs, and vascular supply. The observation of the body parts with the only assistance of the naked human eye is known as gross anatomy or macroscopic anatomy. The study of those body structures or body tissues that are only visible using special equipment such as a microscope is referred to as microscopic anatomy or histology.
Anatomy 101 is aiming to provide comprehensive and easy-to-digest information on the structure and function of a variety of human body parts. Improved knowledge of human anatomy and how the body systems interact sets the basis to understand illnesses and make informed decisions about your health care.
The circulatory system is essential for the proper functioning of the body. It is made up of the heart, blood vessels, and blood. The circulatory system is the main transport mode of the body. Thе heart iѕ an оrgаn аbоut the ѕizе оf уоur fiѕt that pumps blооd thrоughout уоur body. Blood, the fluid component carries oxygen and nutrients to the tissues and takes carbon dioxide and waste materials away from the tissues to be excreted. The blood vessels carry blood pumped by the heart to the lungs and other parts of the body.
