Integumentary System Integumentary System is: covers the muscular skeletal system, protects as a barrier against infection, regulates body temperature http://www.innerbody.com/image/musfov.html Integumentary System Organs: Skin Tissue: Epithelial tissue, connective

tissue Skeletal Cells: blood cells, fat cells, immune cells, squamous cells http://www.flspinalcord.us/integumentary-system-disease/ Molecules: Proteins, Fats Covers the body Barrier covering the entire body. Provides

If too hot our sweat glands open up and we lose water, and our blood vessels move to the surface to give off heat. If too cold our muscles shiver and we constrict or blood vessels to keep heat in. https://www.medicinenet.com/image-collection/skin_picture/picture.htm

Integumentary System: Responsible covering the muscles and bones, protection, and thermoregulation System Organs: skin Tissue: epithelial tissue, connective tissue Cells: squarmous cells, fat cells, etc. Healthy Integumentary system: 1) Is in tact nil cuts, breaks, abrasions, or bruises. 2) Skin should be warm to touch, have blood

flow, nil bumps, blemishes or major discolouration. 3) Have flexibility (good turgor) returning to position within 1 second. Nursing Observations: - Skin check investigate that it is intact - Skin infection check that there are no signs of infection i.e. redness, pain or swelling - Skin Turgor test pinch it and see flexibility https://www.medicinenet.com/image-collection/skin_picture/picture.htm

Epidermis Outer layer (Thin layer of connective tissue) stops things getting in. Dermis Middle layer contains blood vessels, nerves, hair follicles, collagen , sweat gland catches bacteria Hyperdermis deep layer made of fats for warmth.
