The Respiratory system
  • By Katie K. ,Dorian C. , Cierra P.

2
The major Function in the Respiratory System
  • The major function in the respiratory system is
    to supply the blood and other body systems with
    oxygen

3
How the respiratory System works
  • When you inhale the lungs blow up like a balloon.
    Then the bronchi and the alveoli witch are ways
    from the lungs to the blood witch carries the
    oxygen from the lungs to the blood and the other
    body systems
  • Another function in the respiratory system is to
    clear out the what the body does not need like
    carbon dioxide.

4
Possible Diseases
  • Emphysema is caused by smoking.
  • Lung cancer is a disease caused by
    uncontrollable cell growth in tissues.
  • Inflammatory lung disease is caused by a large
    neutrophil

Fun Facts
  • Your lungs have about 1,500 miles of airways
  • Bronchioles are about the same thickness as hair,
  • There are 600 million alveoli in your lungs, and
    if you stretched them out they could cover an
    entire tennis court.
  • Yawning brings extra oxygen in your lungs
  • Yawning also gets rid of carbon dioxide that may
    be getting up in the lungs
  • Children and women breath faster than men

7
Our Questions about the respiratory system
  • Why does the lungs stop when you sneeze? Answer
    because your airways get cut off for a moment.
  • Why does your heart beat when you hold your
    breathe? Answer Because there is still a supply
    of oxygen eventually your heart will slow down
    and then stop.
  • What does the air you inhale go through?
  • Answer through the nasal passages and trachea
