Distal circulation refers to circulation that occurs at the furthest point of the central core. This includes the arms and legs.

Yes. the upper arm is closer to the origin of attachment to body truck than is the forearm
Proximal is the opposite of distal.
Proximal- Closer to the axis of the body
In medical terms it would be furthest away from the centre/main part. i.e. the distal part of the finger would be the end of the finger.
Circulation describes the process of blood moving from the heart (the pump), out to the brain, major organs, then limbs all using the arterial blood vessels, and through the v…enous blood system (uses veins) back to the lungs and heart. Circulation never stops this constant process, until the heart stops and we die. If revived, circulation must be completely restored before organs and the brain dies.
Distilled water is the preferred liquid to refill automotive batteries that have been in service a while. While some batteries are sealed tops and cannot be serviced, there ar…e still some batteries with accessible cells. Use distilled water in a proper battery service dispenser to avoid overfilling. Distilled water is preferred because it lacks the chemicals and impurities found in ordinary tap water that can shorten a battery's life. Sulphuric acid should never be added to a battery that has already been placed in service. The pH level of the acid is too high for anything other than a brand new virgin battery. And as always, safety first! Gloves, goggles and apron.
To check distal circulation you are checking circulation in the extremities. You can apply pressure on the fingernails and toenails to see how quickly the blood returns which …can supply clues as to the quality of circulation. This can be important in a few different scenarios. First, if you have finished dealing with any life-threatening injuries by performing CPR or any other treatments, you can now see if the victim's condition is improving or worsening by comparing the distal circulation at different intervals. Second, if you have tied a bandage over a wound on say the arm, checking the distal circulation can tell you if you have tied the bandage too tight. Third, if someone is dark-skinned you can check the fingernails for signs of circulation and to see if skin colour is normal (as opposed to yellow, blue, ashen, red).
Yes. Distal means farther from the point of attachment or from the center of the body. So the knee is distal to the hip, and the food would be distal to the knee and so on.

Circulation is the system of shunting blood throughout the body. The blood returns to the heart from systemic - or full body - circulation via the superior and inferior vena c…avae - or the biggest veins in the body - and goes straight into the right atrium, an upper chamber of the heart. from there it passes through the tricuspid valve into the right ventricle, or lower chamber of the heart, and goes to the lungs through the pulmonary artery. notice that arteries always carry blood from the heart to body tissues, while veins always carry blood from tissues back to the heart. in the lungs, the blood receives oxygen - or becomes oxygenated - and goes back to the heart via the pulmonary veins into the left atrium, through the mitral or bicuspid valve, into the left ventricle, and into the aorta, or the biggest artery in the body, to be shunted throughout systemic circulation to ensure that the entire body receives oxygen so that no tissue dies.
if you think about it, the role of the loop of henle is to essentially get as high a concentration of salts in the collecting duct as possible to get concentrated urine becaus…e it's trying to get as much water water as possible reabsorbed back into the body. now that we know this we can pretty much work from there. after the fluid has moved through the descending limb (which is water permeable meaning that it loses water through osmosis to the tissue fluid in the medulla) and the ascending limb (which is water impermeable meaning the opposite), the fluid is very high in concentration of salts because salts keep moving into the tubule after the top of the descenting limb. therefore, by the time the fluid gets to the distal convoluted tubule, the urine is low in water potential already. sodium ions move out of the fluid and potassium ions move into the tubule. water also continues to diffuse out of the tubule and also later on in the collecting duct. depending on how hydrated the body is, more and more water is reabsorbed back into the tissue fluid in the medulla before being absorbed by the capillaries and carried away by the blood. this is all done to prevent dehydration.
Since the humerus is farther down the arm than the scapula, it is considered distal.
A distal pulse is found at the far enr of the extremities. A proximalal pulse is found at the torso side of the extremities.

Yes, the phalanges are distal to the carpals. The fingerbones are farther away from the origin of the upper limb than the carpals are.
