Product description

Cutaneous Innervation of Peripheral Nerves Poster (Laminated or Paper)
Shows the cutaneous pattern of distribution of the peripheral (spinal nerves) nerves. Anterior and poster aspects of the body. Spinal levels for most of the nerves. Includes description of peripheral neuropathy and list of common compression syndromes.

Cutaneous innervation refers to the distribution of nerves that supply sensory information to the skin. Peripheral nerves play a crucial role in this process as they carry sensory signals from the skin to the central nervous system (CNS), specifically the spinal cord and brain, allowing you to perceive sensations such as touch, temperature, pain, and pressure from different areas of your body.

The cutaneous innervation of peripheral nerves is highly organized, with specific nerves responsible for transmitting sensory information from particular regions of the skin. This organization allows for precise localization and discrimination of sensory stimuli.

In addition to dermatomes, there are peripheral nerves that carry sensory information to and from specific regions of the body. For example, the median nerve innervates the palm side of the hand, while the ulnar nerve innervates the pinky and ring fingers. Many peripheral nerves have cutaneous branches that supply sensory information to specific skin areas. For example, the sciatic nerve has branches like the tibial and common fibular nerves, which innervate different parts of the leg and foot.

Understanding cutaneous innervation is essential in clinical medicine, as it helps diagnose sensory deficits, nerve injuries, and neurological conditions. It also plays a crucial role in surgical procedures, anesthesia, and pain management. Overall, the precise mapping of cutaneous innervation helps healthcare professionals diagnose and treat various conditions related to the skin and sensory perception.
