Internal Organs of Humans: The human body is made up of organs, cells, tissues, and connective tissue. The anatomy of the human body is into groups based on location. Picturing these locations can provide a better idea of the makeup of the internal structure of a body. First you can start with the head and neck region, which includes everything above the thoracic inlet, you then move to upper limb region which includes everything from the hand to shoulders, next the chest area which includes everything from shoulders to the next area of the abdomen area. Lastly you have the back region which includes the entire spine and back area, pelvic region which includes from the abdomen in the pelvic area, and lower limb area which includes the area from the pelvic are to the feet. Throughout these regions of the body lie the major organ systems. Each system has a distinct location based on the function of the organ group.
Organ Systems and Location: There are eleven major organ systems within the human body. The skeletal system , muscular system, integumentory system (hair, skin, nails), nervous system, digestive system, excretory system, respiratory system, circulatory system, lymphatic system, endocrine system, and reproductive system. Each of these organ systems are the same in males and females except for the reproductive systems. Each organ within each system has distinct role. These organ systems then works together to maintain a healthy balance and function within the human body. When looking at a diagram of the human body you can see the location of these organs and how each is connected in some manner and work together to produce this healthy balance. The most important part of the organs within these systems is actually the cells which can move, grow, reproduce, and metabolize all on their own. While they are the smallest component in the human body, they are also the most important.
Learning Location: While some of the major organ systems are located throughout the entire body such as the circulatory, skeletal, muscular, and nervous system. You can learn the location of the organs by placing them in one of the areas or regions of the body discussed previously. For example the reproductive organs for males are located in the pelvic region, while female reproductive organs are located in the pelvic region and chest area. The respiratory system is also located in the chest area and the digestive system is located in the abdomen and pelvic areas. Learning the regions of the body and placement of the organs throughout these regions can help you better understand the human anatomy. Diagrams of the human body and anatomy can help you chart these organs and place them within the different regions of the body. It is important to remember that each organ system, the organs and components thereof, and even the tiniest parts of the body, such as cells, all play an important role throughout the human body. Learning the anatomy of the human body is important in learning how to better take care of yourself and maintain a healthy plan for the care of your body and its important internal organs.
