Respiratory System
What is the Respiratory System?
The Respiratory System is a system that contains many organs
and it is in charge of breathing in and out. He are the organs.
The human body needs oxygen to sustain it self. Oxygen is also known as hypoxia. Newborns up to 6 weeks take about 30 to 60 breaths per minute while the average adults take 12 to 20 breaths per minute. That's kind of weird. Oxygen also has a shorter abbreviation. It is O2.
The Organs
The respiratory system includes organs like the lungs, the trachea, the Bronchi and other organs. The trachea is a tube that brings oxygen to the lungs. Some times when you hear people say that their food went down the wrong tube, the food literally goes down the wrong tube. The lungs are some pretty big organs. The right lung one is slightly bigger than the left lung. The left one smaller because if it weren't then our heart wouldn't be able to fit in the center of the circulatory system.
We inhale o2 and exhale co2. This exchange of gases is the respiratory system. When you breathe in you suck in oxygen and gives oxygen to the blood. Co2 is Carbon Dioxide. Lung cancer occurs when you smoke to much Tobacco. When you smoke your lungs will fill with black gunk. That's why you should never smoke. If you smoke it can really hurt the way your body functions.
Plants are very important to us. Why you ask. Well, plants release oxygen to the atmosphere. Oxygen to them is worthless, but to us it is very important. What we do to them is that we give them carbon dioxide. Carbon Dioxide to them is like gold. They really need carbon dioxide. So plants are like the oxygen making machine. Instead of naming plants "Plants," they should name them "The Oxygen Maker 3,000."
