  • 2. The Respiratory System’s is known for the system that helps you breath. Your lungs take in oxygen, and eliminates CO2, or carbon dioxide. Breathing is the movement of air into and out of the lungs, and being human, we obviously need to breath to live. This happens by the alveoli exchanging the different gases within your lungs.
  • 3. The major parts and organs in this system include your lungs, bronchi, diaphragm, trachea, larynx, pharynx, and your mouth and nose. Although your lungs are the most known parts of this system, we wouldn’t be able to stay alive without the other parts of this system.
  • 4. The Respiratory System interacts with the Circulatory system, where blood vessels are filled with Carbon Dioxide (CO2), which the alveoli take in, and then release Oxygen (O). The blood vessels take in the oxygen, and travel throughout the body with the oxygen. The Respiratory System also interacts with the nervous system because it is what controls the rate in which you breath. Signals are sent to your brain, and that is what controls your natural rate of breath.
  • 5.  The respiratory system takes in air through the nose or mouth. It then goes through a complex system to get you the oxygen you breathe and get rid of the CO2. It then gives to oxygen to the circulatory system which then gives your body the oxygen it needs. Other systems also help to give your body homeostasis.
  • 6.        There are a number of respiratory diseases (many of which can kill)including… Cold/Flu- Due to Viruses Bronchitis- Due to viruses and Bacteria Pneumonias-Viruses and Bacteria Asthma-Due to dust, smoke, pollution, and pollen Emphysema-Due to smoking Lung Cancer- Due to smoking
  • 7.  How fast does the system take to complete one cycle? › Seconds  How many breaths does the average healthy adult take? › 12 to 20 bpm during rest, up to 45 when exercising.  What happens after 4 to 6 minutes without breathing? › Your brain cells without oxygen are destroyed and you will have severe brain damage, or you will be dead.
