Muscle spindle: origin of primary vs. secondary endings
Primary ending is from Group Ia.
Secondary ending from Group II.
Follicle stimulating hormone
Thyroid stimulating hormone
Alternatively: GOAT FLAP with the second 'A' for Anti-diruetic
· Note: there is also melanocyte secreting homone and Lipotropin, but they are
not well understood.
Rex, Make Good Sex":
· Respective products:
· Alternatively for layers: GFR (Glomerular Filtration Rate, convenient
since adrenal glands are atop kidney).
just need to rearrange the order.
V is roman numeral for 5, so rearrange to 2V0, or 250mL/min.
PGI2 Inhibits aggregation.
· Note: full name of PGI2 is prostaglandin I2 or prostacyclin, full name of TxA2
is thromboxane A2.
arm), LA (left arm), LL (left leg).
Number of L's at a corner tell how many + signs are at that corner [eg LL
Sum of number of L's of any 2 corners tells the name of the lead [eg LL-LA
is lead III].
For reference axes, the negative angle hemisphere is on the half of the
triangle drawing that has all the negative signs; positive angle
hemisphere contains only positive signs.
And Fast Cars Are Really Sexy Attributes":
Granulosa secretes Aldosterone in response to Angiotensin
Fasiculata secretes Cortisol in response to ACTH.
Reticularis secretes Sex steroids in response to ACTH.
Freakin' Gun Right Away":
Glomerulosa: Mineralcorticoid (aldosterone)
Fasiculata: Glucocorticoid (cortisol)

cells are Out of the brain. Inner cells are Into the
Outer hair cells are motor efferents to amplify signal.
Inner hair cells are sensory afferents that actually pick up the sound.
is relaxed. Definition: relax heart.
Inotropic: when heart wall contracts, moves inward.
Definition: contract heart.
Chronotropic: 'chrono-' means 'time'. Defintion: heart rate (of SA node
Dromotropic: only one left, it must be conduction speed by default.
OsteoClast Consumes bone.
Mitral, Tricuspid, Aortic, Pulmonic
Organ development (sex organs)
Endocrine: FSH and LH regulation
Secondary sex characteristics development
Tropic for pregnancy
Receptor synthesis (of progesterone, oestrogen, LH)
Osteoporosis decrease (inhibits bone reabsorption)
Granulosa cell development
Endocrine: increases prolactin secretion, but then blocks its effect
Sex drive increase
Uterine contractility increase
oXytocin sensitivity increase
To Shock My Best Nerve":
In order of least conductive to most conductive:
stimulates the mammary glands to PROduce milk.
Oxytocin stimulates the mammary glands to Ooze (release) milk.
function Myenteric: Motility.
Submucosal: Secretion and blood flow.
V/Q is lowest at bottom, highest at top.
Mineshaft 1: Patent ductus ateriosus.
Mineshaft 2: renal afferent arteriole dilatation.
Heart rate up
Oligomenorrhea & amenorrhea
Intolerance to heat
Musle wasting & weight loss
CONServe heat, the

When the skin is COld, the blood
vessels of the skin COnstrict.
12 liters of interstitial fluid
3 liters plasma volume and 30 liters inside cells
45liters total body water
Acidosis: H+ ions move in.
Starvation: catabolism of cells.
Stress: catabolism of cells (postoperative).
Exercise: catabolism of cells.
Sodium chloride lost: K+ replaces it and is then excreted.
"Try before you Buy": When read across the page, the tricuspid
valve comes before the bicuspid valve.
Also, the lunar valves are near the top (in the sky), like the moon.
Renin-angiotensin m echanism
Na concentraton in blood
ANP (atrial natriuretic peptide)
stimulated to produce testosterone.
FSH: Spermatogenesis stimulated.
· pH is high, PCO2 is down (Alkalosis).
· pH is low, PCO2 is up (Acidosis).
· pH is high, HCO3 is high (Alkalosis).
· pH is low, HCO3 is low (Acidosis).
Catabolism of proteins/ Carbohydrate metabolism
T cell immunomodulation
Hyper/ Hypotension (blood pressure control)
Adrenergic peripheral structures
Alimentary mucosa [intestine]
· MAO-B in:
carotid bO2dy measures O2.
of glycosylated Hb (Hb1c):
· Glucose binds to Amino terminal of Beta Chain.
"HbF binds Forcefully":
· HbF binds oxygen more forcefully than HbA, so Oxy-Hb dissociation curve shifts
Stored blood is SOS:
· Stored blood Hb binds to Oxygen Strongly because of
decrease in 2,3 BPG.
2,3 BPG binding site is BBC:
· BPG binds to Beta Chain of Hb.
Myoglobin binding strength is MOM:
· Myoglobin binds Oxygen More strongly than Hb.
· Chief cells of stomach produce Pepsin.
shift: causes Loading of O2 in Lungs.
Right shift: causes Release of O2 from Hb.
Alternatively: "TRIPS, MI ASs!" (uses MItral instead of BIcuspid)
Right, Men are Glued to their Gonads":
PeT: PT is for extrinsic pathway.
PiTTbull: PTT is for intrinsic pathway.
Collagen deposition (fibrosis)
Ossification of costal cartilages
Pulmonary venous congestion
Increased expanding pressure
Chest wall scarring
· All but L/A/E decrease compliance.
Concentrated urine = Cranial.
No effect = Nephrogenic.
Produce cervical mucous
Relax uterine smooth muscle
Oxycotin sensitivity down
Gonadotropin [FSH, LH] secretions down
Endometrial spiral arteries and secretions up
Temperature up / Tit development
Excitability of myometrium down
nucleus--> Parturition (childbirth is oxytocin's most important role).
Heating = Posterior hipothalamo [hypothalamus].
Anterior hipothalamo [hypothalamus] = Cooling.
