Asthma might lead to some problems. How does the respiratory system work with scuba diving?

Asthma will be prob.: The diving medical community is divided on the question of asthmatics diving. The uk, which has the most permissive guidelines, allows people with well-controlled asthma, who meet several additional criteria, to dive under certain circumstances. In australia, it is essentially forbidden for asthmatics to dive. You should consult a diving medicine specialist in your area for specific details.

How does the respiratory system work and how essential is it?

How does the respiratory system work and how essential is it?

Help you breathe: Lungs help you breathe and those are vital to living. There are many ways to treat any problems that occur such as inhalents. When one has emphysema there is even portable oxygen available if needed.

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.

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.

How does our respiratory system help our body function?

How does our respiratory system help our body function?

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.

Can the respiratory system and the nervous system actually work together?

Yes: Respiration is part of what is called the autonomic or involuntary nervous system. That's why it works while you're asleep. You can briefly increase or decrease your respiratory rate, but eventually the autonomic nervous system will take over. I hope that helps.

System: The two systems work together and require each other to function. If they weren't connected, symmetry and coordination wouldn't be effective.

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.

What does the respiratory system do for you?

Exchange gases: The lungs are the major organs of your respiratory system. When you breath in, you take oxygen in through your lungs and when you breath out, you expel carbon dioxide.

Strength, efficiency: Exercise strengthens the muscles of respiration, they also become more efficient and conditioned through exercise as well.

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.

How does the respiratory system affect the cardiovascular system?

How does the respiratory system affect the cardiovascular system?

Directly: If you don't cary out gas exchange (o2--co2)in the lungs, then your blood ph will fall (acidosis), and the heart will experience arrhythmias, ultimately asystole and death.

How does the respiratory system and the nervous system depend on each other?

Both important: They are both very important to keeping you alive! oxygen is necessary for your brain cells to work properly. The nervous system (and particularly the brain stem) controls your breathing, the movement of your chest, the circulation of your heart, and oxygen going to your brain. They all have to work together.
