Transcript of THE SKELETAL SYSTEM & HOMEOSTASIS EXPLAINED

THE
SKELETAL SYSTEM
The skeletal system is made up of all the bones in your body; it helps hold up the skin. The skeletal system supports and protects the body. It also produces blood cells, and stores calcium. It regulates endocrine as well.

HOW DOES THIS SYSTEM MAINTAIN HOMEOSTASIS?
FUN FACTS!
An adult skeletal system contains 206 bones
But, a newborn baby's skeletal system has approximately 300 different components -- these "extra bones" fuse to become "a larger bone"
Each hand has 27 bones; each foot has 26

THE SKELETAL SYSTEM & HOMEOSTASIS
SYSTEM ORGANS
This specific system uses all bones & joints in your body.
WHAT IS HOMEOSTASIS?
Homeostasis is a word that is used to describe the survival of organisms in an ecosystem and to describe the survival of cells inside of an organism.
In homeostasis there are two feedback loops: negative & positive. To explain a negative feedback loop, think of when your body is hot. There, your body would sweat to cool you down. To explain a positive feedback loop, think of when apples on an apple tree ripen. This happens because the first ripe apple sends off a chemical that helps ripen the rest of the apples.
HOW DOES THIS SYSTEM MAINTAIN HOMEOSTASIS?
SO, TO ANSWER THE QUESTION...
The skeletal system helps maintain homeostasis by producing new red blood cells as the old one dies off. It also helps maintain the level of calcium in the blood stream.
HOW DOES IT AFFECT ABILITY TO MAINTAIN HOMEOSTASIS?
New red blood cells would not be produced to replace the old, dead ones. Also, the calcium would not be as well controlled.
