Transcript of Basics os Anatomy and Physiology

Systems of the body and their relationships Systems of Control Nervous System Endocrine System The Nervous System is responsible for controling and communicating with the body. Fast communication avenue to the body The Endocrine System regulates the activities in the body to maintain Homeostasis by releasing hormones (chemical substances) Systems of Transportation Circulatory System Digestive System The Circulatory System is responsible for transportation of nutrients, immune cells and waste throughtout the body The Digestive System is in charge of physical and chemical breakdown of foods and absortion of nutrients, also removes waste from the body Systems of Protection Integumentary System The Integumentary System is the largest system in the body, that represents the first defense of the body against invasion of pathogens. Lymphatic System The Lymphatic System aids the immune system and removes excess fluids from the interstitial spaces (edema) Immune System The Immune System is in charge of killing any microorganism once it has entered the body. Skeletal System The Skeletal System provides the framework and structure of the body, protects the primary organs and serves as storage of minerals and lipids, production of blood and provides the levers for movement. Respiratory System The Respiratory System is responsible for the movement of air in and out of the body and the process of Respiration (Gas Exchange) Systems of Movement Muscular System The Muscular System provides the movement necessary to carry substances inside the body, heart contraction and also for body movement Urinary System The Urinary System serves as the filter of the blood and removes toxins out of the body, also reabsorbs water, electrolytes and other necessary substances Articulations (Joints) Even though the Muscular System provides movement and Skeletal System provides the levers, the Articulations provide the Range of Motion needed for the body to move
