Transcript of Respiratory System

The Respiratory System The Respiratory System is made up of the lungs, the heart, and the blood vessels. It does this through breathing-when we breathe we inhale oxygen and exhale carbon dioxide. This exchange of gases is the Respiratory System's way of getting oxygen to the blood.

Respiration is acheived through the mouth, nose, trachea, lungs, and diaphragm. Functions The primary function of the Respiratory System is to supply oxygen to the blood vessels, so the blood can supply oxygen to all parts of the body. The principle functions of the respiratory system are:
- ventilate the lungs
- extract oxygen from the air and transfer it to the bloodstream
- excrete carbon dioxide and water vapor
- maintain the acid base of the blood the Breathing Process Breathing is the process that moves air in and out of the lungs. Breathing is one of the processes that delivers oxygen to where it is needed in the body. It also removes carbon dioxide. Respiratory System working with other body Parts The respiratory system works with other systems of the body including the digestive system, skeletal system, circulatory system, muscular system, and the nervous system. The skelatal system protects the inner body, therefore protecting the respiratory system. 5 Facts 1. The right lung is slightly larger than the left. 2. We lose half a liter of water a day through breathing. 3. Women and children breathe faster than men. 4. A pulmonologist is the name for a specialist for the respiratory system 5. We breathe in 13 pints of air every minute.
