When intrapulmonary pressure becomes subatmospheric, ambient air inflates the lungs and saturates them with oxygen. The vertical dimension of the thoracic cavity is enlarged with descent of the diaphragm. Because its central tendon is fused to the base of the fibrous 56 CONCEPTS IN ANATOMY pericardium, downward displacement of the diaphragm also causes the heart to elongate, thus adding room medially for lung expansion. Infants are not efficient costal breathers, because their ribs occupy a nearhorizontal plane.

They do not form plexuses; the anterior rami of thoracic spinal nerves, in essence, are represented by intercostal nerves supplying intercostal muscles as well as the skin along the front and the sides of the trunk. Recall, however, that the skin of the back is innervated, segmentally, by posterior cutaneous nerves of posterior rami. Cutaneous Domains of Spinal Nerves The area or patch of skin supplied by a single spinal nerve, whether trunk skin or limb skin, is a dermatome. In the trunk, where spinal nerves T2 through Ll distribute segmentally, dermatomes form overlapping bands that encircle the trunk horizontally between the manubriosternal junction (T2) and pubic symphysis (Ll).

The five sacral vertebrae are fused to form the sacrum, and fusion converts the coccygeal vertebrae into the coccyx. Vertebrae of one region have one or more distinctive features that set them apart from those of other regions. All vertebrae, however, have the same basic form (Fig. 3): a kidney-shaped body and a vertebral (neural) arch. Only Cl, the atlas, and C2, the axis, are atypical in that respect (Fig. 4). Vertebral bodies transfer the weight of the head and torso to the hip joints and lower extremities.
