Respiratory System

The Respiratory System The human respiratory system plays a very important part in our bodies. Without it, we wouldn’t be alive! We need air to move through our bodies at all times. Breathing, is a key necessity for life. Our respiratory system is made up of many organs that all work together. The goal of breathing is to deliver oxygen to the body and take away carbon dioxide. The respiratory system organs all work together, like a engine in a car, they all have a important role. Some...

Respiratory System

Research Paper The Respiratory System As humans, our body is made out of different systems, which work together to make us live day by day. One major system is the respiratory system. The respiratory system includes the nose (the nasal cavity and paranasal sinuses), pharynx (throat), larynx (voice box), trachea (windpipe), bronchi, and the lungs. The respiratory system begins from our respiratory tracts that carry air to and from the exchange surfaces of the lungs. Respiratory tract can be divided...

Respiratory System

Respiratory system: The respiratory system is a combination of the Circulatory and Pulmonary systems feeding oxygen and nutrients to cells all around the body. These systems allow oxygen to enter the body, and be circulated around the body at a varying rate. These two systems work in conjunction with each other and have various rates of operation that are usually in as close a correlation as possible. Circulatory System: The circulatory system’s primary responsibility is to circulate oxygenated...

Anatomy and Physiology of Respiratory System

Physiology of Respiratory System Overview Cells in the body require oxygen to survive. Vital functions of the body are carried out as the body is continuously supplied with oxygen. Without the respiratory system exchange of gases in the alveoli will not be made possible and systemic distribution of oxygen will not be made possible. Thetransportation of oxygen in the different parts of the body is accomplished by the blood of the cardiovascular system. However, it is the respiratory system that carries...

Parts & Functions of the Respiratory System

RESPIRATORY SYSTEM Respiratory System Organs and Its Functions Introduction to the respiratory system organs: The respiratory system is the system of the human body by which it produces energy needed for life processes. This energy is produced by the breaking down of glucose molecules in all living cells of the human body. Introduction to the respiratory system organs: In simple terms, Oxygen taken in to the body through air breathed in is transported to all parts of the body, and it...

RESPIRATORY SYSTEM WEBQUEST 1. Describe the function of the nasal and oral pharynx for breathing. The ph arynx is a muscular funnel that extends from the back of the nose to the larynx, or voice box. The nasal pharynx’s function is to allow air passage through it. The oral pharynx has both respiratory and digestive functions since it serves as a passageway for air, food, and water. 2. Describe the structure and function of the epiglottis. The epiglottis is one of the nine cartilagous structures...
