Respiratory System By: Kimberli Sanchez, Miriam Segura and Guadalupe Segura

2 Major Functions The main function of the respiratory system is the exchange of gases such as oxygen and carbon dioxide in the lungs. All structures in the respiratory system tray ct play necessary in the function of the system. Several organs of the respiratory system are responsible for the process of breathing. The primary organs of the respiratory system are lungs, which function to take in oxygen and expel carbon dioxide as we breathe .

3 Diagram

4 Continued Trachea is a pipe shaped by rings of cartilage. It divides into two tubes called brunch. Lungs : Your lungs are part of a group of organs and tissues that all work together to help you breathe The diaphragm is the muscle that controls the breathing process The larynx sometimes called the voice box is the tube shape organ in the neck region between the pharynx or throat in the trachea. The egilotlis is the essentially a trapdoor in your throat. Its and elastic cartilage covered with a mucous membrane located at the entrance. Vocal cords are also called as pica vocalist in the Latin. These are the folds related to mucous membrane that move further into the larynx.

5 Breathing Process We breathe with the help of your diaphragm other muscles in your chest and abdomen. Those in your muscles will literally change the space and pressure inside your body cavity to accommodate your breathing. The lungs get bigger with air and pushes the diagram down. The body breathes in the air which is sucked through the nose or mouth and down through the trachea (windpipe).

6 How it works with other body systems
How does the respiratory system work with other systems in the body? The respiratory system work s with almost all the other body systems in the human body. For example: The respiratory works the nervous system because the brain tells the respiratory system when to breathe in or out. The respiratory system works with the skeletal system, by allowing the skeletal system to protect the respiratory organs, like how the ribs protect the lungs

7 4 Fun Facts Our respiratory system is one of the most sophisticated biological mechanisms in nature, designed to enable the most important life proves of aerobic cellular respiration, which helps your body to produce energy from food. It achieves this through the supply of oxygen and removal of carbon dioxide The breathing rate is faster in children and women than in man. The right lung is slightly larger than the left. The highest record sneeze speed is 165 km per hour.

8 Diaphragm So we have talked to you about the process of the respiratory system, now we would like to demonstrate to you how the diaphragm works.
