RESPIRATORY By: Ann Zachariah, Sandy Laczewska, Hossein Hosseinian Where??? respiratory 0 The The respiratory system is located in your upper body also known as your lungs. What is the role? When you hear the word respiration you probably think of breathing… breathing is part of the process, it gets air in and out of your body. What organs are included? Sinuses Nasal cavity Epiglottis Larynx Esophagus Trachea Bronchus A pair of lung Bronchiole Diaphragm What are the main functions? Respiration includes circulating oxygen through the body cells and getting rid of carbon dioxide. It is controlled by blood as it interacts with the medulla oblongata. (the part of your brain stem that controls activities such as breathing and heart rate) What is each organs function? Oxygen enters the respiratory system through the mouth and the nose.Then the oxygen passes through the larynx (the upper part of the respiratory system where speech sounds are made) and the trachea which is the tube that enters chest part. The diaphragm’s (a sheet of muscles that lies on the chest part of the body) job is to pump carbon dioxide out of the body and pull in the oxygen. The bronchial tubes lead directly into the lungs where they divide into many smaller tubes which connect to tiny sacs called alveoli. What can go wrong? The lungs can blacken from smoke and become weak, and not be able to take in oxygen causing the blood cells not to perform blood circulation. Tuberculosis Lung cancer Black lung for coal miners Asthma Bronchitis Pneumonia Emphysema How to keep the system healthy Avoid smoking and second hand smoke. Cough when needed. Healthy diet/weight control Avoid pollens and allergens Regular exercise to increase oxygen intake Vitamins and minerals Nutrients… marshmellow What would happen? Lungs will die and turn black from smoke(if smoking) causing you to have a terrible cough and of course leads to lung cancer. Which eventually leads to death (example only for smokers) Can you survive? NO… TOTALLY IMPOSSIBLE you will have no way of getting oxygen… obviously when you can’t breath you CAN NOT continue to live. Why? Breathing is an involuntary process. Respiratory circulates blood through body which causes the heart to pump your blood.
