functions of the respiratory system
Functions of the Respiratory System
  • The main function of the respiratory system is to provide the blood with oxygen so that the blood will deliver the oxygen to all parts of the body. When we breathe, we take in oxygen and release carbon dioxide. The exchange of these gases is the how the respiratory system gets oxygen to the blood.
organs of the respiratory system
Organs of the Respiratory System
  • Nasal Cavity- This is where the air enters and is warmed and humidified by the hairs in your nose
  • Trachea- wind pipe, and is made of rings of cartilage in the shape of “C”s. it splits in to two bronchi
  • Bronchial tubes- ,lead to each lung, branch continuously into smaller bronchioles, and are covered with cilia which moves mucus to the esophagus so it can be swallowed.
  • Alveoli-are at the end of each small bronchial tubes and are basically air filled sacs. Alveoli are surrounded by capillary beds for the gas exchange, and there are millions of alveoli.
  • Lungs- there are two lungs, there the organs that contain the bronchial tubes .
  • Diaphragm- Is a sheet of skeletal muscle that forms the bottom of the chest cavity.
  • Epiglottis- Is a flap that separates the trachea and the esophagus and moves when you swallow/ breathe.
links between body systems
Links between Body Systems
  • The Respiratory System is linked to the Nervous, Digestive, and the Cardiovascular System.
  • The Cardiovascular system and respiratory system are almost the same because they both have the same goal. They both have the same goal, get oxygen in and carbon dioxide out.
  • The respiratory system works with the nervous system because the brain requires oxygen.
  • The digestive system creates carbon dioxide as waste, and the respiratory helps get rid of the waste.
asthma c ould h ave b een related to the death of our victim
Asthma Could Have Been Related to the Death of Our Victim
  • Asthma could have been the COD of our victim. She could have had an asthma attack because she was power walking and passed out from lack of oxygen and then hit her head on the table causing head trauma. Asthma would be related to the head trauma which is COD possibility.

What is asthma?

  • Asthma is a chronic inflammation of the bronchial tubes (airways) that causes swelling and narrowing (constriction) of the airways. The result is difficulty breathing.
