LYMPH NODES

June 3, 2015

Lymph is important for the skin and is formed by a white pulp. Lymph moves by the action of breathing and squeezing by the movement of the muscles. By continuous variation in the pressure of fluid in the tissues, the movement of the lymph accelerates the activity of endothelial cells as well as increasing the […]

LYMPH NODES

May 23, 2014

Lymph is important for the skin and is formed by a white pulp. Lymph moves by the action of breathing and squeezing by the movement of the muscles. By continuous variation in the pressure of fluid in the tissues, the movement of the lymph accelerates the activity of endothelial cells as well as increasing the pulling mechanism of the network of non-elastic filaments on the vessel walls. The respiratory system cleanses the lymph.
Lymph follicles, glands or lymphoid tissue are present under the mucous membrane in the small intestine, as either solitary or aggregated lymphatic follicles. Lymph nodes deal with bacteria absorbed from the contents of the small intestine which has a serous coat derived from the peritoneum, a muscular coat, a coat of connective tissue rich in blood vessels and the mucous membrane.
Villi are fine hair-like projections covering the small intestines, giving it a velvety appearance and are for the absorption of food. Proteins in the form of amino acids and carbohydrates in the form of simple sugar are absorbed by the cells covering the villi and pass into the blood capillaries, being carried by the portal vein to the liver.
Fats in the form of fatty acids and glycerol are absorbed by the cells and build up into droplets of fat. These pass into the lymph within the villi and are drained away by the lymphatic capillaries, or lacteal veins and vessels.
The fat passes through the lymph vessels to the cisterna chyli and is carried up the thoracic duct into the bloodstream.LYMPH NODES
