Impair due to paralysis of the chest or diaphragm.
Hard to breath ( The intracostal muscles, the diaphragm and abdominal muscles.)
Hard to cough
Diseases It can harm and even destroy the respiratory system. Asthma : causes coughing and makes it hard to breath. Lung Cancer : causes smoking and drives to death. Tuberculosisthe : caused by bacteria that can destroy lungs.
Things that can help respiratory system Play baseball, or dance, or swim or just keep active. (Make a lot of oxygen) Do Aerobic exercise everyday (With your muscle using oxygen)
Things that can weaken respiratory system Airline Pilots and flight attendants Smokers Air Pollution
Respiratory System The group of organs in your body that are responsible for taking in Oxygen and breathing out the Carbon Dioxide which is the waste product of cellular respiration. Oxygen The gas that your body needs to work and function. Carbon Dioxide The waste product (gas) that is produced through respiration of people and animals. Nose/Nasal Cavity Where Oxygen first enters your body. Tiny hairs help filter the air and air is moistened and heated by your nose. Your Nose leads into your Nasal Cavity. Mouth/Oral Cavity Oxygen/air can also enter through your Mouth but it is not filtered. Your Mouth opens up into your Oral Cavity. Pharynx/Throat Gathers air from your Nasal and Oral Cavities and passes it to your Trachea. Trachea/Windpipe A tube like pathway that connects your throat to your Bronchi Tubes and lungs. Air passes through it when it travels from the Pharynx to the Bronchi Tubes.
Bronchi Tubes Each tube (one per lung) splits up into many smaller tubes called Bronchiole, like branches on a tree. Bronchiole Keep splitting up until they reach your Alveoli. Respiratory Bronchiole The air tubes that are actually connected to the Alveoli. Alveolar Duct The final tube, which is part of the Alveoli, that leads to the air-sacs. Alveolar Sac Where the chemical change takes place and where blood cells pick up oxygen and drop off carbon dioxide. Alveoli Tiny air-sacs at the end of your Alveolar Duct. They fill up with Oxygen and are surrounded by Capillaries. Capillaries Tiny blood streams (around one cell wide) that surround your Alveoli. They take Oxygen out of our Lungs and replace it with Carbon Dioxide, which you later breath out. Diaphragm The muscle membrane that helps you breath in and out by changing the pressure in your chest cavity.
