The excretory system

The Excretory System

How Our Body Eliminates Wastes


The excretory system

  • Excretory System– removes excess water, H2O, urea, carbon dioxide, CO2, and other wastes from our blood.


Waste

Waste

  • Wastes that are removed include carbon dioxide, water, salt, urea and uric acid.

  • All excreted wastes travel at some time in the blood.


The excretory system

  • Some organs belong to more than one system.

  • Skin

  • Lungs

  • Large intestine

    Think – Pair – Share:

    Can you guess how these structures are a part of the excretory system?


The excretory system

  • Skin – excretes water, as sweat, which contains some trace chemical wastes, including urea.

  • Lungs – filter out carbon dioxide, CO2, from the blood.

  • Large intestine - removes solid, undigested food from the body after it passes through the digestive system.


The excretory system

The Urinary System

Kidneys – filter wastes and excess water from the blood.

Ureters – tubes that take urine from the kidney to the urinary bladder.

Urinary Bladder – a sack that stores urine.

Urethra – small tube that leads urine out of the body.


The kidneys

The Kidneys

  • Every drop of blood in your body is filtered by your kidneys more than 300 times per day!

  • Kidneys eliminate urea, minerals and excess water.

  • Kidneys regulate the amount of water we need to maintain in our bodies.


The excretory system

Urine from the kidneys goes to the Ureter, then moves to bladder to be expelled from the body.


The excretory system

Doctors analyze urine for disease;

  • Normal urine contains water, urea and trace minerals.

  • Sugar in urine indicates Diabetes

  • Protein in urine indicates the kidneys are not working and the person, or animal, is very sick.
