Chest & Abdomen
The trunk of the body, formally titled the thoracic cavity, is home to some of the most vital organs of the body, including the heart and lungs. The ribs form a protective "cage" around these organs. The trunk is also referred to as the core, a term which definitely indicates the importance of the organs, muscles, and other structures located in the chest and abdomen. For nearly all medical professionals, understanding the form, function and relationship of the organs and structures of the thoracic cavity is critical to delivering quality care to patients, whether in emergency medicine, auscultation, or therapy.
