Lymphatic Drill and Theory

A combination of chapter 20 and 21 lecture reviews and 2 theory reviews. Will help with homework, lymphatic drill, and Theory.
interstitial spaces
Where does lymph originally come from?
right lymphatic vein
recieves lymph from the right arm, right side of the thorax and right side fo the head and drains in to the __ ___ ___
is a hormone
removes worn-out blood cells from circulation
subclavian veins
The right lymphatic duct and the thoracic duct empty into the:
lymph nodes that drain the head and neck region
Pharyngeal tonsils
aka: adenoids, structures located near the opening of the nasal cavity in the upper throat
inguinal lymph nodes
are located in the groin
right arm becomes edematous
What happens if the lymphatic vessels and nodes are removed from the right axillary region?
"hold water" and cause edema
If proteins are allowed to accumulate in the interstitial space, they will:
infectious mononucleosis
Which of the following is due to a viral infection involving the lymph nodes and is called the "kissing disease"?
What is the term that refers to the removal of the palatine tonsils?
a hyperactive spleen
What condition is most likely to cause a platelet deficiency.
thymus gland
Structure concerned with the processing and maturation of T lymphocytes.
thymus gland
This lymphoid organ is located in the ventral cavity, thoracic cavity, and mediastinum:
subclavian vein
This receives lymph from the large lymphatic ducts:
lymphoid organs

partially encapsulated lymph nodes located in the throat area?
intestinal villus
A lacteal is located within the:
B and T calls are:
wheezing and hypotension
What is the effect of a massive release of histamine?
What is the name of a severe hypersensitivity reaction?
You had measles as a child. What describes you immunity to measles?
An allergen is a:
A booster
increases antibodies to an antigen.
respiratory obstruction
A severe anaphylactic reaction causes death by:
What is the treatment of choice for an anaphylactic reaction?
B and T cells
Represent specific immunity:

Associated with plasma cells and antibodies:
plasma cells
Are most related to antibody-mediated immunity:
a macrophage
engulfs the pathogen to achieve "antigen presentation":
T Cells
are classified as killer, helper, suppressor, and memory?
killer T cells
Which of the T cells destroys pathogens by punching holes in their cell membrane and secreting lymphokines?

helper T cells
Which cells secrete a lymphokine that stimulates both T and B cells?
A vaccine
conveys active immunity:
memory T cells
These T cells do not participate in the destruction of the pathogen, but allow for a more rapid response if the antigen is presented at a later time:
T-4 cells
HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) produces sever impairment of the immune system by attacking these cells.
are most common in people with AIDS(acquired immunodeficiency syndrome)
primary response
is most associated with a low plasma level of antibodies:
What is the term that refers to the level of antibodies in your blood?

most related to the placental transfer of antibodies from the mother to the fetus?
What is the term that refers to the use of dead or attenuated pathogens to stimulate antibody production?
What is the name of the toxin that has been altered so that it is harmless, yet still antigenic?
memory cells
The purpose of vaccination is to provide an initial exposure to an antigen to stimulate the formation of:
A breastfed infant is initially immune to the same diseases as her mom, What describes the infant's immunity?
contact dermatitis
What is characterized by a local tissue response to T cell activity?
causes the release of histamine
