Transcript of Respiratory System

Coughs and sneezes have many similarities and differences. We will only tell you one of each. Both can spread germs. But, when you cough, it can be wet or dry and when you sneeze, it is always wet.
The respiratory system has to do with breathing in oxygen and exhaling carbon dioxide. Air goes through your lungs and that makes you breathe. An interesting fact about this is when you breathe the diaphragm contracts and moves downward and the ribcage expands. Another interesting fact is that men can hold obout 6 quarts of air in their lugs. Women can hold about 4.5 quarts of air.
When air goes through the body. The air goes into your lungs. The four major areas air travels through is the larynx,lungs,diaphragm, and the trachea. The diaphragm's job is to help pump the carbon dioxide out of the lungs and pull the oxgyen into the lungs. The larynx guards the lower respiratory passages and the house of the vocal cords. The lungs take in air. Oxygen in the air moves into your blood. Air travels through your trachea toward your lungs. Wastes gases from your lungs also travel through this tube to the outside .
Asthma is a chronic lung disease that inflames and narrows the airways where air travels through. When someone has an asthma attack their airways where air travels trough gets all swollen and very sensitive and their chest feels tight which causes coughing, wheezing for several hours. Normal breathing is when you can breathe fine. But, breathing during an asthma attack is when you can't breathe well and you're airways are all swollen. Breathing in smoke, and pollution can cause an asthma attack. When you have an asthma attack it feels like you are suffocating.
