Croup
...  How is croup diagnosed? Doctors make a diagnosis of croup only when other things have been investigated. The doctor makes sure that there is no epiglottitis, subglottic stenosis, angioedema, retropharyngeal abscess, or an obstruction of the airway by a foreign body. Then, the doctor requests for tests to be done such as complete blood count, X-rays and culture of the suspected pathogen as  ...

Parasympathetic Division
...  a connection between spinal and cranial nerves, all the way to the terminal ganglia. The preganglions are cell bodies located in the oculomotor nerve, brainstem, vagus nerve, facial nerve, glossopharyngeal nerve, and in the spinal cord. The terminal ganglia are found in the walls of the target organs at the pelvis, thorax and abdomen or in the head. Preganglionic neurons are produced in the  ...

External Carotid Arteries
...  the external maxillary branch. The second set or posterior set consists of the occipital branch and posterior auricular branch. The third set or ascending set consists of the ascending branch and pharyngeal branch. Lastly, the fourth and final set or terminal set consists of the superficial temporal branch and the internal maxillary branch. Each of these branches further subdivides into more  ...

Medulla Oblongata
...  of sensory relay and for the cranial nerves as well. Inside the fourth ventricle also lies the nucleus ambiguous and the hypoglossal nucleus. It creates the central structure that brings the glossopharyngeal accessory and hypoglossal nerves forth. The vestibular nuclei forms the vestibulocochear nerves, and on the medulla oblongata’s individual lateral section lies the vagus nuclei which  ...

Parathyroid Glands
...  and venous drainage to the parathyroid glands are basically that of the thyroid glands. However, the innervation of the parathyroid glands differ from that of the thyroids. Vagus nerves branch into pharyngeal branches to deliver the neurons to the parathyroids. The cervical sympathetic ganglia also drive neurons to the parathyroid glands. The parathyroid glands only secrete one hormone - the  ...
