<div>vessels: to form elaborate drainage system that picks up excess tissue fluid and returns to blood, one-way system that only flows toward the heart</div><div>Capillaries:weave between tissue cells and blood capillaries in the loose connective tissue of the body, contain many flap-like mini-valves</div><div>collecting vessels: lymph is transported from lymph capillaries through larger lymphatic vessels called lymphatic collecting vessels,valves use low pressure/ pump less system</div><div>Lymph: excess tissue fluid picked up by lymphatic system</div>
<div>drains lymph from the right arm, right side of the head and thorax and returns to the subclavian venous system</div>
<div>appendix:first part of the large intestine and contains lymphocytes</div>
<div>Peyer's Patches; wall of small intestine, macrophages, B cells, T cells are in position to capture and destroy bacteria</div>
<div>receives lymph from the rest of the body and returns it to the subclavian venous system </div>
<div>small masses of tissue that ring the Pharynx, found in mucosa, trap and remove any bacteria or foreign pathogens entering the throat</div>
<div>low in throat, overlaying heart, T cells maturation location, peak levels during youth</div>
<div>left side of the abdomen, curls around anterior stomach, filters blood of bacteria, viruses and other debris, lymphocyte proliferation and immune surveillance, destroys worn out RBC and return broken down products to the liver</div>
<div>1. cervical region</div><div>2. subclavian</div><div>3. Axillary: armpit</div><div>4. Pectoral: chest</div><div>5. Inguinal: pelvis</div><div>Function:house lymphocytes that function in the immune response and remove foreign material such as bacteria and tumor cells </div><div>Lymphocytes:white blood cells are housed in the lymph nodes. B Cells, T Cells, Macrophages</div>
<div>large sac that collects lymph from lower limbs and intestinal trunk that drains digestional organs</div>
