This topic covers the mechanism of irreversible cell injury. We talk about each mechanism in which cells can be irreversibly damaged, including ATP depletion, Mitochondrial Damage, Influx of Ca2+ and disruption of Ca2+ homeostasis, Reactive Oxygen Species, Membrane Damage, DNA and Protein Damage. Continue reading Mechanism of Irreversible Cell Injury
This topic covers the C1 vertebra, the Atlas. I cover in detail the structure and ossification of the Atlas, and detail of all the structures attached to it.
Continue reading C1 Vertebra – Atlas and Accompanying Structures
This topic serves as an introduction to Microbiology by the best way possible – by an understanding of what particular microorganisms can cause disease in the first place. I will go in great detail of each type in subsequent posts. Continue reading Types of Pathogenic Microorganisms
This topic covers the Scapula, the large flat bone of the back. We discuss the structure of the scapula, the muscles attached to the scapula, and several of its features. Hope you enjoy this post! Continue reading Scapula
This is the second post in the series: Pathologic Cell Injury and Cell Death. This topic, Necrosis, involves cell death that is done unintentionally by the cell. I will talk about all the different mechanisms of necrosis, pyknosis and its variants, and the different morphological types of necrosis, including Coagulation, Liquefactive, Fat, Caseous, Fibrinoid, Gangrenous and Avascular. Continue reading Pathologic Cell Injury and Cell Death II – Necrosis
This topic is Part 1 of a 4 Part Series. The first topic, Reversible Cell Injury, covers the physiology and pathology of reversible cell injuries, and what happens to a cell when a cell is unable to adapt to the stresses of the environment. I will discuss histological changes in cells, Cellular Swelling and Steatosis. Continue reading Pathologic Cell Injury and Cell Death I – Mechanism of Reversible Cell Injuries
This is an Introduction to Pharmacology, talking specifically about the Characteristics of Drugs. I will briefly touch on Pharmacodynamics and Pharmacokinetics and speak about how the characteristics of some drugs are important in their effect on the body. Hope you guys enjoy it!
