Integumentary System

organs of the i ntegumentary s ystem
Organs of the Integumentary System
  • Epidermis: Is the outer thinnest layer of the skin.
  • Hairs: A outgrowth of the epidermis.
  • Sweat Glands: One tubular glands of skin that secrete sweat.
  • Fat layer: A layer of cells lying below the epidermis used mainly for fat storage.
  • Hair follicle: A small cavity in the epidermis and corium of the skin which hair develops.
  • Blood vessels: The vessels as arteries, veins, or capillaries, through which blood circulates.
  • Dermis: Is the layer of cells directly below the epidermis.
  • Nerve endings: Soft spot.
  • Epidermal surface: The layer in top of the epidermis.
  • Sweat pore: sweat comes out.
functions of the integumentary system
Functions of the Integumentary System
  • The integumentary system protects the body from disease by providing a barrier to viruses and bacteria. The system protects the body from physical damage by giving it a thick barrier . The system also protects the body from dehydration and hot an cold weather. The layer of skin can sweat and help the body cool or surround a layer of fat that keeps hot temperatures inside. The skin has glands that create sweat and oil. The integumentary system has sensory receptors to tell you when you are in danger. It also produce vitamin D from absorption of radiation
how the integumentary system work
How the Integumentary System work?
  • The integumentary system works with all the other systems of the body, each of which has a role to play in maintaining the internal conditions that the human body need to function properly.
  • ImmuneSystem. The skin is one of the first defense mechanisms in your immune system. Tiny glands in the skin secrete oils that enhance the barrier function of the skin. Immune cells live in the skin and provide the first line of defense against infections.
  • DigestiveSystem. By helping to synthesize and absorb vitamin D, the integumentary system works with the digestive system to encourage the uptake of calcium from our diet. This substance enters the bloodstream though the capillary networks in the skin.
  • NervousSystem. Your skin plays a vital role in your body’s reaction to danger. The nervous system depends on sensors in your skin to sense the outside world. The nerve cell connections in the brain sense these signal.
  • EndocrineSystem. The Integumentary System also contributes to the regulation of the body’s internal environment so as to maintain a stable condition which is the main function of the Endocrine System.
  • Excretory System & Circulatory System. The circulatory system carries blood, oxygen and wastes in the blood vessels, getting rid of those wastes is the function of the excretory system. The integumentary systems help get rid of this wastes through sweat produced in the sweat glands of the skin.
how the integumentary system work with other systems
How the Integumentary System Work with other systems

The integumentary system work along with other systems in our body to provide a barrier against bacteria or other diseases, which helps the immune system. It also helps the excretory system by getting rid of wastes by sweating. Like excess of salts. The integumentary system its also an important part of the endocrine system. Its important because it helps the body maintain a state of balance. Like keeping the body warm in cold weather, or keeping it cold on extremely hot weather. The nervous system also veceives signals from the sensors in our skin that tells our brain when we’re in danger and we need to react. The integumentary system also absorb radiation to produce vitamin D. This process works with the digestive system.
