Kimberly Ramos Mr. Johnson Honors Anatomy and Physiology January 8, 2016 Respiratory System The respiratory system is the system that helps humans breathe and allow every single human to perform everyday tasks. As researchers say the respiratory system consists of organs. The organs that make up the system are the nose, nasal cavity, oral cavity, pharynx, larynx, trachea, bronchi, lungs, and muscles of the respiration. All these organs play a major role in the respiratory system.
Introduction Human body is composed of eleven systems, where they all contribute together in order for human to survive. However all the systems are important, and the body cannot dispense any of them. Human body requires many factors from the external environment, Oxygen is one of these factors and human body cannot be survived without oxygen. However in this assignment we are going to study the system that is responsible about oxygen supplying to the human body and it is known as the Respiratory system. Beside that Respiratory system does other functions that are important for our bodies.
The tiny air sacs (alveoli) become inflamed and fill up with fluid making it difficult to breath. Due to the fluid build up the symptoms are a cough, but you may also have a rapid heartbeat and fever, sweats and loss of appetite as your body fights the infection. You can also experience chest pain. Croup is a a condition that is commonly found in children. It affects the trachea (windpipe) and the airways to the Bronchi (lungs) and the voice box (larynx).
Laryngeal Cancer Oropharyngeal Cancer Hypopharyngeal Cancer Glottic Cancer The signs and symptoms at a glance Throat cancer has been copyrighted as a deadly disease in the medical arena but the signs and symptoms are pretty clear and it is sensible to visit a doctor as soon as the following symptoms come to the surface: Gruffness in voice Throat remains painful even after medicine for more than a week and a half Weight loss Frequent coughing up
In this section I will explain how two of the body systems interrelate to perform a function. My two body systems are the cardiovascular system and the digestive system and how they work together to enable food to be digested. First of all, the digestive system works by passing food through the human system, whilst breaking it down and absorbing nutrients. The circulatory system transports the oxygen and other compounds through our bodies. These two work together to process and circulate nutrients so our cells can use them for fuel.
The croup cough is very distinctive. It almost sounds like a barking seal and is very distinctive when you hear it. The child may develop a raspy hoarse voice. The last noticeable symptom but certainly not the least would be a harsh crowing noise when the child takes a deep breath in. A child may begin to breathe fast.
Describe your patient who is having an acute bronchospasm, then select one other differential diagnosis to compare it with. Bronchospasm is condition, characterized by a sudden constriction of the muscle of the bronchial walls, leading to a temporary narrowing of the bronchi. As a result of the bronchial muscle tightening and inflammation, individuals suffering from this condition will exhibit a variety of symptoms including productive cough with thick mucus production, wheezing, and shortness of breath. Patient scenario 1 A 32 years old male patient, is scheduled to undergo an elective procedure.
The lungs are a pair of asymmetrical organs that facilitate gaseous exchange between the environment and the circulatory system. The lung on the right side of the chest has three lobes, and the lung on the left has two. The lungs are attached to the respiratory tract via primary bronchi that divide from the base of the trachea and enter their respective lung at the hilum. Each lobe is connected to a secondary or lobar bronchus that divides off from the primary bronchus. The secondary bronchi then further divides into tertiary or segmental bronchi that supply air to the different lobar segments through the bronchioles, alveolar ducts and terminate with clusters of alveoli.
The functions of the human cardiopulmonary system can be broken down into two, circulatory system and the respiratory system. The main goal of these two systems is to maintain homeostasis in our body. Homeostasis can be described as a type of condition where the internal continuity of an individual has to keep steadiness, regardless of any external changes from the outside environment. External changes from the outside environment may include factors such as excitement, stress, exercise, diet, and much more. Exercise can be carried out because the human body can endure a high level of exercise during a prolonged period of time.
In this case, chronic respiratory tract infections caused by Pseudomonas aeruginosa especially when the infection occurs in both either bronchiectasis and cystic fibrosis. These are one of the most difficult infections that are very hard to control. These serious complications requires intensive care hospitalisation or sometimes it can be fatal. This is because it is well known that patients with either infections, often develop acute exacerbations with viral or bacterial superinfection. Exacerbations means worsening of COPD symptoms such as shortness of breath, quantity and colour of phlegm that usually typically lasts for several days.
The Human Body System AC 2.1. Explain the structure and function of at least 3 to 4 systems 1) The Circulatory System; This system transports blood, full of oxygen and nutrients to and from the heart, and all around the rest of the human body. At the same time it transports out carbon dioxide and other unwanted material such as harmful minerals, waste material resulting from cellular breakdown, nitrogenous waste in liquid form, and food additives. These are then taken to the liver where they get transformed, or to the kidneys so that they can be excreted out as urine, or through the intestines.
Homeostasis is the body's method of keeping internal stability no matter what external influence disturbs its normal functioning (Anna, 2011). And the respiratory system is one of the systems in the body that helps to maintain homeostasis by maintaining pH and regulating gas exchange. The main function of this system is take in oxygen and get rid of carbon dioxide. This system has external respiration and internal respiration. External respiration is a mechanical process that exchange of gases in and out of the body, while internal respiration is the chemical process that breaking down nutrients with oxygen to produce energy.
