Alveoli (air sacs)
Alveoli (air sacs)
larynx - voice box, supported by thyroid cartilage(adam's apple) + cricoid cartilage
epiglottis - tongue-like structure that closes off larynx when we swallow
trachea - "windpipe", supported by thoracic rings
thoracic rings - "c" shaped cartilagenous rings, not completely circular to allow esophagus (located behind trachea) to expand when we swallow food, but enough stability to maintain an open passageway of the trachea regardless of pressure change during breathing
Function: To mechanically + chemically process the foods we eat by breaking down food, absorbing the nutrients contained therein, + eliminating undigested food as waste
Digestive tract, alimentary canal or gastrointestinal (GI) tract - a muscular tube that extends from the mouth to the anus (~30ft long)
Accessory organs - manufacture, store, or secrete fluids that contain water, enzymes, buffers, and other components that assist in preparing nutrients for absorption
salivary glands - produce saliva, which contains digestive enzymes that begin the chemical breakdown of food
Pancreas -contains exocrine cells that secrete buffers +digestive enzymes (also makes insulin)
Liver - secretesbile (required for digestion of fats), stores nutrients and vitamins, and has many metabolic and regulatory functions
Gall bladder - stores and concentrates bile received from the liver until needed in the small intestines (helps digest fat).
