Body Systems interconnected
Transcript of Body Systems interconnected
The circulatory system is composed of the heart and blood vessels, including arteries, veins, and capillaries.
The heart is the key organ in the circulatory system. As a hollow, muscular pump, its main function is to propel blood throughout the body.
The heart gets messages from the body that tell it when to pump more or less blood depending on an individual's needs.
The heart pumps the blood throughout the body to distribute the oxygen to all the tissues and to bring the carbon dioxide back to the lungs to be exhaled.
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.
This exchange of gases is the respiratory system's means of getting oxygen to the blood (with the help of the heart.)
Homeostasis is the body's ability to maintain normal function. The disruption may cause the heart to have a heart attack. And then the heart may not be able to continue to pump blood throughout the rest of the body. The body requires circulating blood to deliver oxygen, to take away waste products, and to circulate other chemicals (hormones, etc) that are used to control systems (maintain function) through the body. If the main pump fails then a substantial portion of the bodys' functions will fail - thereby causing disruption.
The heart pumps blood into vessels, acting as fuel for the body.
The nutrients derived from food are absorbed in the intestines and into the bloodstream (and into the heart.)
The digestive system needs more blood to do the job; therefore, blood vessels expand in preparation for this.
The heart responds accordingly by sending more blood supply to the digestive system.
Circulatory, Respiratory, Digestive, Muscular, and Skeletal
The heart is made of cardiac muscle and your internal organs are made of smooth muscle.
The muscular system needs the blood that is supplied by the cardiovascular system in order to get the energy to function.
The heart is the primary organ of the cardiovascular system.
The main job of the skeleton is to provide support for our body.
Your skeleton also helps protect your internal organs and fragile body tissues.
The rib (part of the skeletal system) protects the heart.
Red Blood Cells
The primary function of red blood cells is to carry oxygen from the lungs to the tissues around your body. As a secondary function, they are also a key player in getting waste carbon dioxide from your tissues to your lungs, where it can be breathed out.
RBC's carry hemoglobin, that carries oxygen to all the body.
Circulatory- RBC's are in your blood and when the heart pumps blood the hemoglobin is giving out oxygen
Respiratory- RBC's are given oxygen through the respiratory system
Digestive- digestive system gives nutritions to the blood and RBC's give oxygen (also a nutrtion) so both the food and the RBC's give energy and oxygen
Musculoskeletal- the bones and the muscle need to be given oxygen, through the RBC's (the main cell for providing oxygen through the hemoglobin.)
