    June 8th Itec A&P

    Well what a relief - at last the A&P is behind me. Wasn't too hard at all - finished in ten minutes and at least half the questions were familiar having appeared on these pages already. My advice go through all these question s and make sure you know the answers. I'll try and remember as many questions as possible.

    Where is DNA found
    Which tissue is protective and insulatory
    Which tissue is found all over the body connecting and supporting
    Which is not made of yellow elastic (Stomach, spleen, aorta,bladder)
    What does blood tissue do

    What does the urinary system rely on the skin to do(Excrete,secret, control blood pressure and something else)
    Which one is bacterial (acne vulgaris and three others)
    What is a verruca (viral)
    What causes urticaria (Allergy ,virus and two others)
    What is eczema (congenital)

    Skeletal system
    What kind of bone is the sternum (flat)
    What is another work for the scapula
    What is another word for the clavicle
    Where is a foot bone (talus, radius, tibia and one other)
    What is lordosis (exaggerated inward,outward, brittle bone and one other)

    Muscular system
    What is plantarflexion ( Toe up , toe down, and two others)
    What is abbduction ( can't remember - but v.easy)
    Which muscle draws shoulder forward and rotates scapula
    Which muscle raises trunk after sitting
    Where would you find the triangularis

    Vascular system
    Where would you find chemoreceptors
    What does the splenic artery supply apart from the spleen
    What's the main artery in the arm (itec is really so unimaginative!)
    What do venules do ( Carry deoxygenated blood from capillaries to veins)
    Where do capillaries come from (Arterioles)

    Lymphatic system
    What does the thoracic duct drain into
    What is NOT an important function of lymph noes (filter the blood)
    Where would you find the posterior auricular node
    What would happen to the body if lymph didn't work (sceptecaemia)

    Respiratory system
    Which does not moisten and warm air ( trachea, larynx, pharynx, nose)
    Where are chemoreceptors found
    What causes inspiration to stop so provoking expiration

    Neurological system
    What speeds up transmission of nerve impulses

    Which part of the brain is responsible for balance
    How many spinal nerves
    What does the facial nerve do
    Endocrine system

    A&P Exam June 23rd

    Hi Guys..

    Have just sat my A&P ITEC Exam so thought I would try to write up some of the questions... I was far more positive before I turned over the paper than when I read the questions- the exam seemed to be far harder than any previous papers I have seen and not sure if I have passed but fingers crossed I may have scraped through and if not then I guess I can re-sit in October

    Heres the ones that I can remember and I will try to write up some more tonight..

    Which gland do we seldom have as adults?
    Pituitary, Thyroid, Thymus or one other

    What determines the size of the breasts?
    The muscle under the breast, adipose tissue, elastic tissue or the size of your rib cage? (still don't know the answer to this one!)

    What action would you be doing if you were to point your toe to the sky?
    Dorsiflexion, supination and two other silly answers!!

    Which is not part of the brain stem?
    Cerebrum, Misbrain Pons Varolli or Medulla Oblongata

    What is responsible for coughing, sneezing and vomiting?
    Cerebellum, Pons Varolli, Medulla Oblongata or Mid Brain

    Which part of the brain is responsible for memory?
    Cerebellum, Cerebrum, Midbrain or Pons Varolli

    What is the function of Pluera?
    To prevent friction and other options I can't remember!!

    What is a enlarged Thyroid?
    Graves disease, Goitre and two others!

    What muscle would you use to paint a ceiling (Thanks Tranquillity!!)
    Trapezius, Levator Scapulae, Deltoid or Teres Major

    How many walls of the heart are there?
    2,3,4 or 5

    There were obviously a lot more questions (some very long!) but I can't remember them right now but will take a read through the book and try to right up some more.. There were no questions on the nervous system which was quite disappointing as I am fine with that as well as hardly any questions on the bones.. Was hoping scapula, clavicle or zygomatic would come up, nor were there any questions on tissue types or similar! I did feel that many of the questions were asked in a way that could confuse you quite easily and had more than one answer but I can't do anything about it now apart from to get my fingers crossed and wait for my results..

    Thanks to everyone that has previously posted questions and boo to ITEC for asking silly questions!!

    Hope these help someone and Good Luck to all that are sitting their exams soon

    Love Evie xxx

    RE: A&P Exam June 23rd

    Hi Evie,

    I am sure you have done well.

    IN answer to the breast question I think it is adipose tissure (i.e fat) based on this statement from a web page that I have found

    Fat fills the spaces between the lobules. The size of a breast is determined more by the amount of fat tissue than glandular tissue, so breast size has little to do with its ability to produce enough milk after childbirth.

    The gland you seldom have as an adult is the Thymus (it tends to disappear after childhood).

    Trapezius is used to paint the ceiling (from Mel cash Concise book of muscles)

    Enlarges thryroid - isn;t that goitre?

    I assume there are three walls of the hear endocardium, myocardium and pericardium?

    The medullas oblongatat is he refelx control whuch coughing etc. is a type of reflex.

    Cerebrum is not part of the brain stem.

    How am I doing so far - My A&P exam is next week!!

    Thanks for posting the questions

    Hi Son

    Thanks, I can't wait to get my results now and hopefully a certificate in with them!!! I have been a bag of nerves for the last week so I know how you feel, I couldn't even drive to college I was that bad but it's just one hour and you will find that you remember more than you think you know so try to relax as I am sure that helps

    I can't remember all the questions with answer choices but I hope the following helps

    What are the lymp nodes in the groin called - Inguinal

    What is the sphincter at the entrance of the stomach called - Cardiac

    Whats digests starch in the duodenum - Think its Amylase but best to check

    What does a lack of red blood cells cause - Anaemia

    What joint does the Atlas and Axis form - Pivot

    Where are the tonsils (or similar wording)- Pharynx

    What is internal respiration?

    A question about Homeostasis (strange wording to get to a simple answer though!)

    Where would you find the genetic code?

    What contains waster material or secretions in the cell?

    How does the skin control temperature?

    Where is the Risorius?

    What happens during Telophase?

    Hepatic-Portal vein question (sorry can't remember the exact wording!)

    What is Cancer of the lymphatic system called?

    Where does re-absorption in the kidneys take place?

    Where does the right shoulder drain into (Lymp!) ?

    And I think thats about it for now

    Good luck - I am sure you will be fine

    A& P exam

    Here are some questions I can sort of remember from my exam a few weeks ago.
    1. Where is a chemoreceptor? = the aorta (one of the choices)
    2. When does the spindle threads disappear = during the telephase
    3. There was a question about skin and two of the choices that stood out were that the skin was waterproof or another choice was one that the skin absorbs chemicals through the dermis. The correct answer is that the skin is waterproof as the skin absorbs chemicals through the epidermis and not the dermis. A trick question this one.
    4. What does lipase do? = dissolves fat
    5. There was a question on respiration with the circulatory system.
    6. What is coughing, sneezing = reflex.

    I will send some other ones later. Got to go now.

    ...hi again...maybe lionheart meant that i gave you the wrong answer...but anyway...
    the first answer, i dont have a clue...
    the second one...probably joy and anger are not here what i found in my book...

    (talking about CEREBRUM)
    "... the grey matter on the surface of the brain is made up of nerve cell bodies and is where the main function of the cerebrum are carried out. These include all conscious activities such as touch, taste, smell, hearing, vision and all voluntary muscular movement. The cerebrum also controls the power of reasoning, learning, emotion and memory..."
