Before we begin our journey of the largest organ in the human body, part of the integumentary system, or skin, we need to discover who you would see if you had skin diseases, such as severe acne, eczema, or nasty looking moles. What type of doctor specializes in treating skin diseases?
OK, now that we've defined skin, let's start at the head and work our way down. Underneath all that hair (or lack of it), is your skull. What strong lightweight metal is usually used to replace damaged portions of the skull?
Now we come to the shoulders. I would venture that many of us have had sunburn at one time or another, especially on the shoulders. However, sunburn rarely causes damage under the skin. What degree of burn actually does get under your skin, causing subcutaneous tissue damage?
(One Word, number or numeral)
Moving down from the shoulders to the upper arm, we come to the site of substantial mental anguish for needle-phobic people. Often considered the first vaccination, a procedure that involves injecting the vaccinia virus, or cowpox, just under the epidermis may temporarily prevent what lethal disease?
Let's now move in a medial direction toward the thoracic cavity. Adrenaline (epinephrine) is usually the drug of choice to treat anaphylaxis. In a field environment, adrenaline is usually injected directly into the heart to treat anaphylaxis.
Now let's take a trip below the diaphragm and into the abdomen. In many people there is a substantial fat layer between the skin and muscle tissue. The removal of some of this layer using a cannula and aspirator is called what?
Continuing to move down the body, we come to the pelvic region. On the back side of the pelvis is a body part that starts out as five separate bones that begin fusing together in people at about 16 years old, usually completely fused by the mid-20s. What bone is this, derived from the Latin for "sacred" due to its close proximity to the procreative organs?
Moving further down the body, the ZZ Top song "Legs" comes to mind. Just under the skin of the leg are superficial veins. When the leaflets of the valves of these veins no longer meet to prevent the backflow of blood, the veins become enlarged. What is this unattractive and sometimes painful condition called?
As soccer (futbol) and American football players can tell you, the knee is one of the most susceptible joints to sports injuries. What steroidal hormone has historically been injected into the knee for short-term pain relief and to reduce swelling and inflammation?
Finally, we come to the feet; the support for our mobility. Unfortunately, some people don't treat their feet very well, instead using them as vessels for opiate injections. Which opiate is commonly injected into the veins that run through the feet, particularly in the webbing between the toes?
lysergic acid diethylamide
