The ribs are curved, flat bones which make up the majority of the thoracic cage and protect the inner thoracic organs. Their anatomical construction enables the lungs to expand and thus facilitate breathing by expanding the chest cavity.
In this video tutorial we cover the structure and major bony landmarks of the ribs, their overall anatomy, location and organization in the body, as well as the three different types of ribs.
There are three types of ribs:
- The true ribs (1-7) are characterized by attaching directly to the sternum through costal cartilage
- The false ribs (8-10) attach to the sternum through the costal cartilage of the true ribs
- The floating ribs do not attach to the sternum at all
Each of these rib types have specific landmarks and features that we will discuss and explore in the full video. We will then conclude withclinical aspects, when something goes wrong with the ribs.

My book says the Ilium, ischium and pubis are not part of the axial skeleton.....

Using a human physiology study guide which can help you learn through tutorials and special learning modules may seem a bit mundane when compared with learning in a traditional classroom.
