and push it into the arteries with each contraction of the heart. The left atrium
and ventricle work separately from those on the right. The roles of the chambers
on the right side of the heart is to receive oxygen-depleted blood from there the

Area of skin in adults is about 1.5 m2 and weight abaut 15 % of the overall
weight. Skin consists of three main parts, namely epidermis, dermis, and
hypodermis. Epidermis consists of stratum corneum which is rich in keratin,
stratum lucidum, stratumgranulosum, rich keratohialin, stratum spinosum and
stratum basal mitotic. Dermis is composed of supporting fibers including collagen
and elastin, while the hypodermis is composed of fat cells, the tip of peripheral
nerves, blood vessels and lymph vessel. The skin has many functions, which are
useful in maintaining body homeostasis. These functions can be grouped into the
function of protection, absorption, excretion, perception, body temperature
regulation (thermoregulation), and the formation of vitamin D.
