5 True/False questions
What are the target organs for the celiac ganglion? → Stomach, small bowel, adrenal medulla
In regards to the lumbo-sacral lateral chain, where do most sympathetic fibers to the lower ext pass thru, and what would blockade at this level cause? → Pass thru L2/L3. Causes near complete sympathectomy of the lower ext.
In regards to the cardiac plexus, where does sympathetic input arise from? → Cervical ganglia.
What are the target organs of the superior cervical ganglions (C1-C4)? → Lower colon & rectum
Where does the cervical sympathetic chain receive its input from? → Lies on the anterolateral surface of the vertebral bodies.
