Homeostasis Research Project
The skeletal system provides support for the body and is where red blood cells are produced.
To maintain homeostasis, the skeletal system has to protect organs and keep the in place, and interact with muscles.
If the skeletal system fails to work properly, red cells will not produce, you can't move with out proper functions of the skeleton, and the different organs won't be able to function properly.
Some disorders of the skeletal system cause the bones to become weak, brittle, develop cancer, or problems with the regrowth rate.
The muscular system allows the body to move.
To maintain homeostasis, the muscular system has to allow the body to move and return back to its place.
Also involuntary muscles regulate heart beat and breathing.
If the muscular system fails to maintain properly, diseases form that cause: weakness, tremors, bruising, tearing, paralysis, and since muscles control breathing and heart beat, it can cause death.
The digestive system breaks down food, extracting nutrients, and eliminates waste.
To maintain homeostasis, the digestive system regulates the intake of nutrients and water.
It needs a reasonable amount of food with nutrition and a reasonable amount of water.
If the digestive system fails to work properly, the food you eat will not be broken down and nutrients will not be absorbed. Also energy will be lost and the food will make the blood toxic.
The nervous system sends and delivers electro-chemicals throughout the body.
To maintain Homeostasis the nervous system has to regulate and control other parts of the body.
The excretory system removes excess waste from the body.
To maintain homeostasis, the excretory system has to remove all waste from the body.
To do this the skin sweats, the liver and kidneys filter blood, and the colon allows waste to pass from the body
If the excretory system fails to work properly, then the waste piles up and creates diseases.
Some of the diseases are urinary tract infections, constipation, kidney failure, and in some cases gout.
The cardiopulmonary system moves blood throughout the body.
To maintain homeostasis, the cardiopulmonary system has to regulate and maintain nutrients, oxygen, and waste products needed by the cell.
If the cardiopulmonary system fails to work properly then all other organs and systems begin to shut down.
This is because they aren't getting the nutrients and oxygen they need from the blood.
It must receive a continuous supply from blood.
When something is out of the ordinary it sends nerve impulses to a regulating spot, which sends either negative feedback to stop it or positive feed back to continue it.
If the nervous system fails to work properly, it could lead to failure of bodily functions. It could also lead to brain damage or death.
