Name: __ Section: ____DL3 ____________ Lab Report: Exercise 8: Gross Anatomy of the Muscular System Purpose: The main job of the muscular system is to provide movement for the body. The muscular system consists of three different types of muscle tissues: skeletal, cardiac, smooth. Each of these different tissues has the ability to contract, which then allows body movements and functions. There are two types of muscles in the system and they are the involuntary muscles, and the voluntary muscles. The human body contains more than 650 individual muscles, which are attached to the skeleton, which is how we are able to move around. Understanding these tissues and types is the focus of this lab. Are there any safety concerns associated with this exercise? If so, list what they are and what precautions should be taken. Yes, there are many safety concerns with this lab. The first being the tools we will be using for our dissection. Scalpels are extremely sharp…so sharp that you may not even feel the initial cut (I know from experience). Saftey goggles and gloves should be used at all time for we are dealing with a deceased animal. Cleanup of the cat tissues and disinfecting the area we used to dissect will be important. I might want to use this table again…is a thought that comes to mind.
