  3. 3. What is the Respiratory System ? When you get out of breath and you gasp for air, everything that makes you breathe is your respiratory system!   The respiratory system is the way we breathe. When you breathe in, you inhale oxygen and when you breath out, you exhale, or remove carbon dioxide.
  4. 4. What does it include? <ul><li>The Respiratory System includes the lungs, airways, diaphragm, windpipe, throat, mouth, and nasal passages. </li></ul><ul><li>The lungs are so large that they take up most of the space in your chest. But, believe it or not, your left lung is a bit smaller than the right lung. </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>The airways are important because they carry air through the body. </li></ul><ul><li>The diaphragm pushes air out of the chest, and also helps to suck air in as well. </li></ul>
  6. 6. How does it work? Now you know what the respiratory system is, we can go in into focus on how we get air, and precisely the way we get oxygen. The fist step is to get it into our lungs.
  7. 7. <ul><li>This done by the nasal cavity, which is like a wind tunnel that carries air from the two nostrils and the mouth to the throat and down in the windpipe. </li></ul><ul><li>It then goes down into the many branches called the bronchi after that, it goes into lungs and then pumped around in the blood. </li></ul><ul><li>The diaphragm then releases and pushes the carbon dioxide out of the body. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Why do we need this system? All the cells in your body require oxygen. Without it, you could hardly do anything; you wouldn’t Be able to move, build, reproduce or turn food into energy Because, of course you’d be dead.
  9. 9. Diseases and Illnesses Asthma is one of the many respiratory problems. The word ‘asthma’ comes from the ancient Greek word meaning panting. Asthma accurs when the Bronchi gets swollen. This can result in as small as minor wheezing , to as big as major problems in breathing.
  10. 10. <ul><li>Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is an illness that makes it hard to breathe, and causes lots of coughing. </li></ul><ul><li>Most people who have COPD smoke, or used to smoke. Other ways of getting COPD are air pollution, dust or chemical fumes. </li></ul>
  11. 11. What can I do to protect it? Never smoke! Smoking attacks all your vital respiratory organs especially your lungs, your throats and mouth. Just don’t!! Avoid air pollution! Not only does it kill the environment, but also fills our lungs with harmful toxins. Exercise and get fresh air!! If you exercise regularly, you strengthen your lungs and does wonders for your health!!
