The upper limbs are the superior extensions of the trunk, enabling humans to grasp and use tools as well as traverse the environment by reaching and climbing. Grossly speaking, the upper limbs are made of three articulated segments: the arm, the forearm, and the hand.
In this course, the student will be introduced to the osteology of the upper limb; its muscles, irrigation, and innervation; the armpit; and a detailed look at the anatomy of the hand.
For optimal comprehension, the student is encouraged to correlate the lessons of this course with their counterparts in histology, physiology, and embryology.
In trauma situations, the limbs are frequently injured. In falls, for example, the upper limbs are used to protect the face and head from impact. It also stands to reason that as the most distal prolongations of the body and usually the primary means of interaction with the world, they are the receptors of noxious stimuli.
For the adequate diagnosis and management of fractures and other conditions that affect the upper limbs, a physician and nurse are required to have a good understanding of the anatomy of the upper limbs. In the field of orthopedics, both upper and lower limbs are of special interest because of the need for surgical correction of certain fractures.
The different parts and compartments being broken down into separate short videos makes learning an awful lot better
It really brings Upperlimb to me in detail and makes anatomy real.
I could relate easily with the delivery of Dr James Pickering.
The course was concise. However, it cut across every area of the respective lessons taught. It was informative and saved from spending lots of hours going through my study materials provided in class. I really enjoyed it and thus, will recommend it to all.
