  • Homeostatic Imbalances

    Homeostatic Imbalances Homeostasis is the maintenance of relatively stable conditions within the body. This process, controlled through feedback systems, ensures that the body’s internal environment remains stable despite changes in the external environment. Feedback systems are composed of a receptor, a control center, and an effector. When one or more of the components do not function properly the body is placed in a state of homeostatic imbalance. This condition can range in severity, but...

    Homeostatic Imbalances Hypertension is the term used to describe high blood pressure. Blood pressure is a measurement of the force against the walls of your arteries as your heart pumps blood through your body. Blood pressure readings are usually given as two numbers -- for example, 120 over 80 (written as 120/80 mmHg). One or both of these numbers can be too high. The top number is called the systolic blood pressure, which is the force of blood in the arteries as the heart beats, and the bottom...

When this is happening as it should and all your organs and systems are working independently to work together, your body achieves a balance known as homeostasis. When this is not happening, it is called a homeostatic imbalance. Your body uses a negative feedback system to maintain the state of homeostasis. Your body has receptors called baroreceptors in the walls of certain blood vessels that detect high blood pressure, and send signals to your control center or...

    Stenosis means "closing in" or "choking". Spinal stenosis describes a condition in which the nerves in the spinal canal are closed in, or compressed. The spinal canal is the hollow vertical hole formed by the bones of the spinal column. Anything that causes this bony hole to shrink can squeeze the nerves inside. This narrowing can irritate the nerve roots that branch out from the spinal cord, or it can squeeze and irritate the spinal cord itself. This may cause pain, numbness, or weakness, most...

    Dual control theory takes a homeostatic view of hunger and takes glucose levels as well as various brain mechanisms into account. Researchers have found that upon eating, glucose levels in the blood rise. The satiety centre, known as the ventromedial hypothalamus (VMH), is activated producing feelings of fullness which causes us to stop eating. As a result of this, glucose levels drop due its expenditure, alerting the lateral hypothalamus (LH). This then causes a feeling of hunger, making us eat...
