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 nervous system?

How does the respiratory system depend on the nervous system?

Easy.: The brain (mission control of the nervous system) initiates the drive to breath based upon input from a variety of sensors. It transmits signals via the phrenic nerve to the diaphragm to initiate breathing. Cough receptors in the lung similarly control the cough reflex. Additionally the epiglottis is triggered to cover and protect the trachea to prevent aspiration. ...Read more

How does the respiratory system work with other systems in the body? I'm doing a project for school on human body systems.

Every part important: But consider this. The lungs are how we get oxygen into our body. The trachea is the tube to let air flow into the lungs. WIthout oxygen people will suffer brain damage or death after about 3 minutes. So I would say that the respiratory system is pretty important to the functioning of the human body. ...Read more

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

Can doctors tell me what does the respiratory system need from the immune system, and vice versa?

BALT: The respiratory system (lungs) has parts of the immune system in it. It is called balt-bronchial associated lymphoid tissue. There are also cells in the lining of the lung that "sample" the air for virus, bacteria, etc. These cells communicate with the immune system to eventually make antibodies that can then circulate within the body to protect from infections. ...Read more

What do the organs in the respiratory system do?

What do the organs in the respiratory system do?

Get oxygen to blood: Respiration is the process of bringing oxygen into the lungs and exhaling carbon dioxide out of them. Once inside the lungs, the oxygen crosses cell membranes to get into the blood stream. The blood circulates the oxygen to the rest of the body including the brain which cannot function without it. Carbon dioxide is the waste product of well functioning cells and is also carried back by the blood. ...Read more
