ASMAD ORIGIN OF LYMPHATIC SYSTEM

BSND 1-B

Lymphatic comes from the Latin word lymphaticus, meaning "connected to water," as lymph is clear. The lymphatic system, which is a subset of the circulatory system, has a number of functions, including the removal of interstitial fluid, the extracellular fluid that bathes most tissue. It also acts as a highway, transporting white blood cells to and from the lymph nodes into the bones, and antigen-presenting cells to the lymph nodes. The first historical discovery of the lymphatic system was documented in 1622 which refers to the findings of `milky veins` in a dog after digestion. 1650 did John Pecquet (1622-1672) discover the lacteal vessels and the flow of lymph fluid in the largest lymphatic vessel into the vena cava. Rudbeck (1630 – 1708) who declared that the lymphatic system was actually a complete and definite system within the human body. THE ORIGIN OF LYMPH Lymph originates as plasma (the fluid portion of blood).

Also known as extracellular fluid, this is fluid that flows between the cells but is not into the cells. This fluid delivers nutrients, oxygen, and hormones to the cells. Diseases of the lymphatic system
