Transcript of Respiratory System

The Respiratory System Oxygen In, Carbon Dioxide Out. Alveoli It is made of simple squamous epithecal cells that is for diffusion of gases. Alveoli has tiny air pockets in the lungs. The Structure Alveoli are very
small air sacs that
are at the end of the
bronchids. The Alveoli is the air's clestination when you breath in air. It has tiny pockets in the lungs. It's function is to transfer in the air we breath. Function Trachea
(Windpipe) The trachea is a wind pipe that connects to both lungs. It goes from the throat to all the way to your lungs. It made of cartilage "C" shaped. It is bendable and twistable. Protects the neck and tears and other damages. Structure The trachea is the passage leading from the throat to the lungs. It divides the two main Bronchial Tubes the right and the left bronchus which leads into each lung. Function Bronchial Tube Inside lung
Connected to trachea (windpipe) Structure Function Allows air in and out of the lungs.

The goal of breathing is to deliver oxygen to your body and take away carbon dioxide. What Is The Respiratory System ? Parts of The Respiratory System The Nasal Cavity is Divided into two vertical fins called Nasal Septum.
The Nasal Cavity is also divided into two segments. The respiratory segment and the olfactory segment. Structure The Nasal Cavity's Job is to warms, moistens, and filters the incoming air that you inhale. Function 1. The function of the pharynx is to provide a passageway for the respiratory and digestive tracts. Function Pharynx is a tube like structure that connects the nasal and oral cavities to the larynx.
Pharynx is nothing but throat. Structure 2. Epiglottis helps separate food and water from the lungs and also gives us the ability of speech. Function It is shaped like an upside down teardrop. The point of the teardrop is where it attaches in the larynx just above where the vocal cords come together. Structure 3. Larynx 4. The Larynx is a framework of cartilage plates in which it swells to prevent food scraps from entering the lungs. Structure Sound is generated in the larynx, and that is where pitch and volume are manipulated. Function 5. Lungs The lungs are the main organs of the respiratory system. In the lungs oxygen is taken into the body and carbon dioxide is breathed out. Function The Lungs are large, spongy like, inflatable organs which means it can increase or decrease in size.
The lungs are protected by the rib cage. Structure 6. 8. 9. Erika Ponce, Pedro Guerrero, Ivana Rivera,
