Transcript of Copy of The Respiratory System

Double click anywhere & add an idea Osasu & THE RESPIRATORY SYSTEM The basic function of the respiratory
system is to bring the exchange of oxygen the pharynx is a passageway for air and food. The air moves this
organ into the trachea which allows air to pass into some of the tissues in the body. The larynx has two elastic folds of tissue
which are the vocal cords.Muscles pull these cords together and when they do the air that
moves between them makes the cords vibrate and produce SOUND!!!!!!!!! air is moved through our noses,pharynx,
larynx,trachea and lungs. The trachea then branches into smaller tubes which are called bronchioles,after reaching the lungs.The bronchioles then end in the alveoli(air sacs) HOW THE SYSTEM WORKS!!!!!! The Interaction With Other Body Systems The Digestive System Skeletal System The Circulatory System Nervous System The Skeletal System helps the Respiratory System by protecting the lungs as a shield.
It keeps the lungs protected and helps with movement as well. The delivering of carbon dioxide and
waste products helps the respiratory
system transport nutrients to help keep
the lungs clean and healthy. The respiratory
system helps the circulatory system by providing oxygen to keep it working. The Muscular System It helps the respiratory system
by letting us feel and know when we
are breathing. It also controls those involuntary
movements. Proper Nutrition Eat healty foods that will help
your respiratory system. Drink Water Drink a healthy amount of good
quality water. Rest Resting your body will also rest your lungs. Exercise Daily exercising will help your lungs. No Air Pollution Exposure to pollution in the air can have harmful results on humans. it can also cause some respiratory disorders. DON'T SMOKE!!! pain=life long agony
and possible death smoking=pain Smoking tobacco and cigarettes can cause
many respiratory diseases like lung cancer.
It is unhealthy because it contains nicotine,
a powerful drug that affects the heart
and blood vessels. Smoking can lead to illnesses and disorders that can lead to death. Caring for the System CURRENT TECHNOLOGY CT scanners show cross sectional pictures of the body using x-rays and computers. It allows doctors to look at the inside of the body. X-Ray's help doctors find and treat medical conditions. It makes images of the heart,lungs, blood vessels,and bones of the chest as well. Two types of x-ray machines are chest x-ray's and bone x-ray's Every minute you breathe in about 13 pints of air.
Getting sick with a cold has nothing to do with being out in the freezing air. It's REALLY because of the germs flying in the air when sneezing or coughing.
Our right lung is larger than our left. This makes it able to accommodate the heart.
We yawn because our brain sees that there are low levels of oxygen in our lungs and responds by taking in a huge amount of oxygen.
Laughing helps boost the immune system.
Children laugh 300 times a day and,well adults laugh only about 15 to 100 times a day.
When dust particles get in our nose, our body gets rid of them by sneezing. The muscular system helps push air into and out
of the respiratory system through
the contraction and relaxing of
the diaphragm. In return, the
respiratory system delivers air to
the muscles with its lungs. The Digestive System helps the respiratory system by giving the lungs nutrients and the respiratory helps the digestive by giving it oxygen. The actual exchange of oxygen and
carbon dioxide takes place in the alveoli,
or the small grape like structures in the
lungs. CAREERS
Respiratory therapist: the administer prescribed treatments to patients with respiratory illnesses. they teach breathing exercises and help with the respiratory system. Salary- $47,902 - $69,506
Respiratory coordinator: they organize, direct and make sure the respiratory department works effectively. Salary- $19.83 - $28.15 per hour. To Bring Oxygen to the blood & to remove waste from the blood. The basic function of the respiratory system is to bring the exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide between our blood, the air and our tissues Interesting FACTS Other Reasons for the Respiratory System... Some are natural & some are not. Humans have learned to control the amount of air leaving the body, as well as the speed, to allow for speech. When there is an irritation in the lungs or trachea, the nerves send a message to the brain, causing your body to cough or sneeze to remove the irritant. The respiratory system can increase or decrease your core temperature. Forced exhalation from the lungs allows for actions such as blowing out a candle.
