2 Deep fascia. This type of connective tissue lines the body wall
and extremities and holds muscles together, separating them into functioning groups.
Deep fascia allows free movement of muscles, carries nerves and blood vessels, fills
spaces between muscles, and sometimes provides the origin for muscles.
3 Subserous (visceral) fascia. This type of tissue forms the
fibrous layer of serous membranes, covering and supporting the viscera, and attaching
the parietal layer of serous membranes to the internal surface body wall.
The protection, sensations, secretions, and the other functions that the
integument gives to the rest of the body are essential for life. Indeed, changes in the
normal appearance of the integument often indicate abnormalities or diseases of body
function. As Medical NCOs, you need to recognize changes in the appearance of the
integument that your treatment might affect. A basic knowledge of the normal anatomy
and physiology of the integumentary system is essential to your job. The integumentary
system 's role is underrated but, as can be seen, it is essential. The tissues of the body
are involved in every function of the body--from hormone secretion to protection.
Knowledge of the structure of tissues will help you in understanding the other systems
of the body.
