How do the muscular and respiratory systems work together?

How do the muscular and respiratory systems work together?

See below: Both systems help us breathe. Muscles are the diaphragm and intercostal muscles - for normal breathing. As the diaphragm drops down and the ribs expand, the lungs also expand, taking in air, and oxygen along with. When the diaphragm rises, and the intercostals relax, the chest wall recoils, causing the lungs to recoil causing air to move out - and CO2 along with it. ...Read more

How do the skeletal, muscular, nervous, and cardiovascular system work together?

Works in Harmony: Quite a question for 400 characters or less! The human body (and all plants and animals in nature for that matter) are complex systems that work in balance with their environment. There are structural components (musculo / skeletal) as well as energetic and regulatory components (gi/ cardiovascular / neuro) with multiple layers of feedback systems to allow the organism to thrive. ...Read more

How does exercise keep the respiratory and circulatory systems healthy instead of breaking them down from overuse?

How does exercise keep the respiratory and circulatory systems healthy instead of breaking them down from overuse?

Exercise improves: These systems by making them work more efficiently. In addition, the other organs such as the kidneys, musculo-skeletal and neurologic systems also improve due to the optimizing of their cellular function (better energy production) and in the interaction of the various organ systems.
Imagine an athlete exercising regularly. He or she will be better in their sport because of this process ...Read more

How does the respiratory system depend on the circulatory system?

How does the respiratory system depend on the circulatory system?

Inter-dependent: Relationship exists between the two. The heart pumps arterial blood to the circulation. The deoxygenated or venous blood returns to the lung where blood is oxygenated. Then blood flows into the heart chambers and the cycle continues on. ...Read more

What is spinal muscular atrophy with respiratory distress?

What is spinal muscular atrophy with respiratory distress?

Serious disease: Spinal muscular atrophy is a group of inherited diseases that cause muscle damage and weakness which get worse over time. The most severe form starts in infancy. Milder forms can start in adolescence or adulthood. All types of SMA cause weak muscles and difficulty breathing. It can be hard to take deep breaths and to cough effectively. This results in frequent infections and respiratory distress. ...Read more

What is the cause of frequent respiratory infections in children with duchenne muscular dystrophy?

Impaired muscles: When dmd affects the muscles of breathing, patients have difficulty clearing secretions which can lead to increased infections. Chest pt can be useful to break the secretions up and allow them to be cleared. If there is an issue with scoliosis, this should be addressed early to prevent further repiratory compromise later in the disease course. ...Read more

Someone at work pointed out to me today that I giggle after most sentances, I think its nervousness as I haven't been there long how do I stop doing it?

Feedback: In my anesthesia practice I have noticed that nervousness manifests itself in various ways, depending on personality. Some patients get very quiet, some giggle, others get defensive, etc. These sort of nervous responses may be unconscious. I suggest you ask close friends who you spend a fair amount of time with to monitor this behavior and tell you when it happens so you can modify it. ...Read more

How do the digestive system and the circulatory system work together?

Systems: The circulatory system is the system consisting of your heart and blood vessels. This system transports oxygen and nutrient to the body and waste products to the organs that eliminate them. The Digestive system is where oral intact is broken down into absorbable particles. These particles are then absorbed into the blood to be transported to the body by the circulatory system. ...Read more

How does the respiratory system work together with the cardiovascular system?

How does the respiratory system work together with the cardiovascular system?

O2 Delivery: The lungs exchange co2 from metabolism for o2. The heart delivers a carefully calibrated amount of blood to the body to match o2 delivered to o2 needed. That's why heart rate goes up w/ exercise. The lungs gets their blood from the right ventricle, and this blood comes back to the left atrium where it is then ejected to the body by the left ventricle. ...Read more

How does the lymphatic system work together with the circulatory system to fight infection?

How does the lymphatic system work together with the circulatory system to fight infection?

Lymph nodes: Latin lympha "water goddess" - lymph is essentially recycled blood plasma. The lymphatic system returns the interstitial fluid to the thoracic duct and then to the bloodstream, where it is recirculated back to the tissues. Tissues with lymphedema are at risk of infection and ulcer. The lymph reaches the lymph nodes where infection and cancer cells are seperated and processed by the body. ...Read more

How's does the cardiovascular system and the respiratory system work together to maintain homeostasis?

How's does the cardiovascular system and the respiratory system work together to maintain homeostasis?

Beautifully: Your body uses oxygen for fuel and produces carbon dioxide as waste. These gases circulate in the blood, which is pumped by the heart to the lungs (and the rest of the body). In the lungs, oxygen you breathe in enters the blood, while carbon dioxide leaves the blood and enters the air you breathe out. ...Read more
