  • Functions Of The Respiratory System

    What are the primary functions of the respiratory system? The human respiratory system is made up of several organs (nose, pharynx, larynx, trachea, bronchi, and lungs). They are responsible in receiving oxygen and expelling carbon dioxide. However, the exchange of gases takes place in the lungs making them an important organ of the breathing process. RBC’s gather oxygen from the lungs transferring it to other parts of the body. During this process the RBC’s gather carbon dioxide and transfers it back to the lungs allowing it to exit the body when exhaled. The function of the respiratory system includes: breathing consisting of inhalation (air is inhaled through the nose/mouth, enters the trachea, bronchioles, and the alveoli) and exhalation…

  • Smoking And The Respiratory System

    Smoking and the Respiratory System The respiration system is one of the prime systems in human body because its function is to deliver oxygen to the lungs in order to exchange gases. Many reasons can cause the function of the respiration system not to perform well and cause the diseases; smoking is one of the main reason and the most dangerous cause that can cause diseases in human body. Since there are many parts of respiration system and functions of each part perform dependently, smoking can…

  • Respiratory System Essay

    The respiratory system is the major system of organs that facilitates the process of respiration. This system controls a gas exchange which involves the distribution of oxygen throughout the body and the removal of carbon dioxide from the body as waste. In other words, it plays a crucial role along with the circulatory system during the action of breathing and maintains a constant supply of oxygen into the bloodstream. In turn, the respiratory system provides trillions of cells with energy from…

  • Respiratory System Case Study

    The respiratory system is composed by a set of organs that are involved when breathing. The anatomy of the respiratory tract includes the nose, nasal cavity, pharynx, larynx, bronchi, lungs, alveoli and the diaphragm. There some organs of the respiratory system that are responsible for the process of breathing. The nose, pharynx, larynx, trachea, bronchi, and lungs permit the gas exchange to happen at the cellular level. The air enters through the nose and mouth and it goes into the lungs to…

  • The Primary Functions Of The Respiratory System

    The primary function of the respiratory system is to allow gas exchange which takes place in the lungs. Other functions also include regulating blood pH levels, olfaction and voice production. The lungs are highly specialised and adapted organs for gas exchange. The lungs are paired organs which are found in the thoracic cavity. Each lung is separated from the other by the heart and other structures within the mediastinum. The lungs are enclosed by a double layered pleural membrane: the…

  • Medullary Respiratory System Essay

    The respiratory system is responsible for the balance of oxygen and carbon dioxide in the body to meet metabolic demands. The way a person’s breathe can be affected is by emotions and/or changes in the internal environment. The breathing process is mainly controlled by the brainstem and peripheral system. The brainstem controls several important functions of the body like arousal, breathing, and blood pressure, among other functions. In the brainstem, the medullary respiratory center consists of…

  • Cardiovascular And Respiratory System Case Study

    Introduction: From rest to exercise the human body’s cardiovascular and respiratory systems must integrate and adapt to changing conditions—especially during incremental increases in submaximal exercise to maximal exercise. The coordination of cardiovascular and respiratory systems coalesce to form what is known as the cardiorespiratory system (Lotric & Stefanovska, 2000). Within muscle cells there are extremely limited stores for anaerobic energy; thus, a well-coordinated cardiovascular and…

  • The Grasshopper Circulatory System

    The constituent components of grasshopper circulatory system consist of blood vessels, heart, and aorta. The blood of grasshopper does not contain haemoglobin that is not red. The blood function is only to transport nutrients and metabolic waste from the organs to the malpighian tubules for excretion (Brian, 2014). Likewise, the transportation of carbon dioxide and oxygen is held by trachea system. The heart vessel serves as a pump. Ostia, the valves of the heart, will function as the entry of…

  • Analysis Of The Litoria Caerulea

    Introduction: The Litoria caerulea (Green tree frog) has a very unique respiratory system that is very different to the Homo sapiens (Humans). The respiratory system is made up of organs in your body to help you breath by delivering oxygen to the body and expelling carbon dioxide. The respiratory system consists of Lungs, Diaphragm, Bronchi and Trachea along with others. These organs have crucial roles in the process of respiration (the act of breathing) (Hillendale Health, Hes.ucfsd.org,…
