Transcript of Respiratory System

Respiratory System
Systems that Work Together and how.
Circulatory System: Picks up Oxygen by the blood in the Lungs and releases Carbon Dioxide.

Nervous System: Controls the breathing rate.

Excretory System: Releases Carbon Dioxide.

Muscular System: Diaphragm controls the breathing rate.

Digestive System: Provides oxygen so that you can digest your food.

Dysfunctions of the Respiratory System
Dysfunctions of the Respiratory System
Throat Cancer: Don't use tobacco, Don't drink too much alcohol

Lung Cancer: Don't Smoke, stay away from smokers

Mouth Cancer: Don't use tobacco excessively, and do not drink too much alcohol

Bronchitis: Chronic- No cure
Acute: Stay hydrated, and rest

Pneumonia: Take antibiotics given by a doctor

Emphysema: Avoid smoking and smokers

Influenza:Wash your hands, Tylenol, and, Flu shot

Asthma: Dulera

Mouth: Breath in and out of

Pharynx: Muscular tube that extends from the nasal cavity to the Esophagus and Larynx which allows air to pass through

Larynx: Voice box that holds your vocal cords

Trachea: Airway which allows air to pass in and out of the lungs

Bronchi/Bronchioles: Carries air into the Lungs

Lungs: Put oxygen in the blood
Function of the Respiratory System
The main function of the Respiratory system is the exchange of gases like Oxygen, and Carbon Dioxide. In order to exchange both gases breathing is necessary.
Throat Cancer: Excessive tobacco usage and excessive alcohol usage.

Lung Cancer: Excessive smoking and passive smoking.

Mouth Cancer: Drinking too much alcohol and use of tobacco.

Bronchitis:inhaling cigarette smoke, and air pollution, or having infections

Pneumonia: Viruses, Bacteria, Parasites

Emphysema: Drug use, Smoking too much

Influenza (common cold): Virus that creates head aches sore throat and fevers

Asthma: Unknown
You can survive with out one lung in the Respiratory system but with out the whole system you would die because you would not be able to breathe.
Maintaining Homeostasis
Homeostasis is sustained by the exchange of oxygen and Carbon Dioxide, and regulating pH by keeping the proper amount of acids and bases.









Primary Functions
Respiration: Respiration of Oxygen

Regulation: Regulates amount of Oxygen and Carbon Dioxide in the body

Excretion: Excretes Carbon Dioxide

Transport: Transports Oxygen and Carbon Dioxide
