    The Respiratory System Organisation of cells in the system Specialised multicellular cells are very important when it comes to the organisation of cells in any type of system. Multicellular organisms are organisms which are made up of many different cells as opposed to unicellular organisms which are single celled. Multicellular organisms undergo functions such as obtaining food, moving, defending and reproducing (example of a multicellular animal); these functions are the response of the needs of the organism as a whole. In these multicellular organisms there are specialised cells. These cells carry out a particular function and are modified to do so, an example being structural adaptations. Specialised cells in some multicellular organisms…

    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…

    The respiratory system is a vital factor of gas exchange due to its structure. The structure provides an efficiency to the process due gas exchange requiring an efficient system. Gas exchange requires an efficient system because it is a process through which blood circulates around the body, collects oxygen, delivers the oxygen to the organs that require it and releases carbon dioxide. Oxygen enters the body, and carbon dioxide exits the body in opposite the direction. Gas exchange occurs across…

    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…

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 respiratory system, urinary system, and digestive system make up the three maintenance systems, which aid the body by keeping the conditions of its fluids stable and constant. Each system keeps the body stable by adding and/or removing substances from the body. The respiratory system uses the trachea, lungs, tubes such as the bronchi, bronchioles, and alveoli, and the diaphragm to transport gases into, throughout, and out of the body to maintain a stable internal environment. The respiratory…

    Today is the best day! I went inside a giant’s respiratory system and it was awesome. I entered the respiratory system from the nasal cavity. The nasal cavity is part of the respiratory system. The nose is the primary opening for the respiratory system. Have you ever wondered how it works? The term "nasal cavity" can refer to each of the two sides of the nose or to the two sides combined. The two nasal cavities condition the air to be received by the other areas of the respiratory tract. Owing…

    Understanding oxygen supply and demand while working in the health care field is essential. The tissue cell mitochondria need to have adequate oxygen for metabolic consumption and ATP production. There are limited means of oxygen storage in the tissues; as such a continuous supply of oxygen is required. The respiratory and cardiovascular systems work together to make sure oxygen is delivered throughout the body, and that these continuous requirements are met. Exploring the main role of the…
