How Does The Immune System Help Maintain Homeostasis
Controls microbes: The specific and non-specific immune systems work together to maintain a balance with the microbial world. Bacteria and fungi that colonize the body's surfaces; the skin, the respiratory tract and the GI tract are met at those surfaces they do not invade. The micro biome (these colonizing microbes) play an important role in homeostasis. ...Read more
Immune system: This is a very in-depth topic that could never be described with adequate detail in this little box. Please check out this website for specific information on the entire immune system. http://www.niaid.nih.gov/topics/immunesystem/pages/default.aspx. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
It absorbs all.: the nutrients you eat and stores/utilizes the ones you need and you defecate or urinate out the ones you don't ...Read more
Too Many to Say Here: By circulating blood and other cells the circulatory system suppiles nutrients, energy, protection & a myriad of other things throughout the body to control the balance. It transports hormones to control all aspects of our body & it also helps control our core & extremities temperature and helps remove dead cells throughout the body. It would take books to say all the ways homeostasis is acheived. ...Read more
That's complicated: The cardiovascular system regulates flow of blood to various organs of the body by changing cardiac output and controlling the tone of the blood vessels ( arteries, arterioles and capillaries) that provide blood to these various organs. This is done by various hormones. There are several areas in the body that sense blood flow, oxygen concentration and blood pressure to change blood flow ...Read more
Tolerance: The GI tract is tolerant of food antigens, and mounts a response to infections. ...Read more
Immune system: The immune system is composed of many interdependent cell types that collectively protect the body from bacterial, parasitic, fungal, viral infections and from the growth of tumor cells. Many of these cell types have specialized functions. The cells of the immune system can engulf bacteria, kill parasites or tumor cells, or kill viral-infected cells. Often, these cells depend on the t helper cells. ...Read more

Hows 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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes, yes, yes.: Trust me, yes. Now you're getting into a lot of the biology and science of the human body, detailed analysis of immunity and the immune system, the plasticity and flexibility of the brain--once thought to be set in its ways, the human mind (the brain is physical matter, the mind is much much deeper, and machine will never even approach the complexity of the mind (no matter what cousin ray says)! ...Read more
Oxygen and CO2: Oxygen is needed for your cells to live, and when they burn calories using oxygen they generate co2. Too much co2 is toxic to the brain and it must be removed from the blood. The lungs exhale co2 (like a car's exhaust pipe), and take in oxygen with each breath, lungs transfer oxygen to red blood cells that transport it to your cells. ...Read more
Your question: Is a very complex one. A balance between heart and lung necessary. Heart and lungs structure have to work well. Heart valves, volumes, pressures, autonomic nervous system, arteries and venous compliances, physical and biochemical properties control by neuro endocrine system. Also the regulation of energy metabolism at rest and during activities at the heart will require 3 hr of lectures. ...Read more
Many systems : The immune system functions well if the body is in good health. If there is protein loss in the urine or through the stools then the immune system can suffer. If there is chronic anemia causing fatigue then the immune system can suffer. If there is significant congestive heart failure of untreated thyroid disease then overall health is at risk and the immune system can suffer. ...Read more
