Transcript of The Lymphatic System and The Respiratory System

The Lymphatic System and The Respiratory System By: Cathleen Seaton

& Kaylie Clark The Lymphatic system picks up fluid leaks for the capillaries.
It also supports immune systems: houses white blood cells.
And transports leaked plasma back to the blood stream What is the Lymphatic system? The Respiratory System The Respiratory System gathers oxygen from the air and gets rid metabolic waste.
It has four distinct processes: The Pulmonary Ventilation, External Respiration, Transport of Respiratory Gases, and Internal Respiration. Lymphatic vs Respiratory They all tie together- through circulation. The circulatory system moves your blood around your body. Think of it as a highway. The respiratory system takes in oxygen, and needs to output CO2. It uses the highway to deliver the oxygen all around the body, and the highway drops off its extra CO2 in the lungs. The cardiovascular system pushes blood through the lungs where the respiratory system replenishes the oxygen and removes waste carbon dioxide. Both are needed to deliver blood with life giving oxygen to our tissues. It also is majorly functioned to:

1) Maintain homeostatic of body fluid
2) Defends against Antigens Respiration is achieved through the mouth, nose, trachea, lungs, and diaphragm. Oxygen enters the respiratory system through the mouth and the nose. The oxygen then passes through the larynx and the trachea which is a tube that enters the chest cavity. The diaphragm's job is to help pump the carbon dioxide out of the lungs and pull the oxygen into the lungs. As the diaphragm contracts and relaxes, breathing takes place. The primary function of the respiratory system is to supply the blood with oxygen in order for the blood to deliver oxygen to all parts of the body. The respiratory system does this through breathing. The exchange of gases is the respiratory system's means of getting oxygen to the blood. The diaphragm is a sheet of muscles that lies across the bottom of the chest cavity. When the diaphragm contracts, oxygen is pulled into the lungs. When the diaphragm relaxes, carbon dioxide is pumped out of the lungs. The inhaled oxygen passes into the alveoli and then diffuses through the capillaries into the arterial blood. Meanwhile, the waste-rich blood from the veins releases its carbon dioxide into the alveoli. The carbon dioxide follows the same path out of the lungs when you exhale. In the chest cavity, the trachea splits into two smaller tubes called the bronchi. Each bronchus then divides again forming the bronchial tubes. The bronchial tubes lead directly into the lungs where they divide into many smaller tubes which connect to tiny sacs called alveoli. The main function of the lymphatic system is to collect and transport tissue fluids from the intercellular spaces in all the tissues of the body, back to the veins in the blood system. It plays an important role in returning plasma proteins to the bloodstream. And it transports large molecular compounds (such as enzymes and hormones) from their manufactured sites to the bloodstream. The lymphatic system needs to protect your body from invaders. It needs the circulatory system to bring intruders to it, and to send its warriors out to fight infections. The lymphatic system handles excess fluid from organs and transports the fluid back into the circulatory system, so both lymph and circulatory systems work together to balance fluid levels and keep our organs functioning. Glandular fever - symptoms include tender lymph nodes
Hodgkin’s disease - a type of cancer of the lymphatic system
Oedema - swelling caused by too much fluid in the tissues
Tonsillitis - infection of the tonsils in the throat. Problems that occur in the Lymphatic System.. Emphysema-factor in COPD. A condition that limits the flow of air when you breathe out.

Tuberculosis-an infectious, common disease that effects your lungs and is spred by tiny droplets released into the air.

Pulmonary edema-condition caused by excess fluid in the lungs.

Bronchitis-inflamation of the bronchial tubes.

Asthma-occurs when bronchial tubes are inflammed/constricted and airways produce extra mucos. Problems with the Respiratory System.. Asthma Treatments-atrovent, albuterol inhalers, immunotherapy, corticosteroids.

Bronchitis Treatments-rest, drink fluids, amoxicillin, tylenol, aspirin, breathing in warm air.

Pulmonary Edema Treatment-lasix, astramorph, roxamol, morphine
tuberculosis treatment-isoniazid, rifadin, myambutal, pyracinamide
emphysema treatment-stop smoking, healthy lifestyle, nicotine gum, Zyban, bronchodialators Treatments for the Respirtory System Problems There is very little effect from aging for the Respiratory System. There is very little to no effect from aging to this system. Thank You for Watching!! (: The End!
