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 more

If the immune system is not under control, the brain and nerves can be damaged. If you have vitamin deficiencies or excess, the nerves and the brain could be damaged, etc. ...Read more

How does the circulatory system maintain homeostasis?

How does the circulatory system maintain homeostasis?

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

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

What happens to the endocrine system if homeostasis is not maintained?

What happens to the endocrine system if homeostasis is not maintained?

Depends: If the endocrine system is not maintained well, hormones start to be disrupted, various things can happen. Depending on the hormone you can have weight gain, loss of muscle, increase in inflammation, fatigue, poor sleep. This all starts the process towards dis-ease which eventually if not stopped leads to disease. Integrative medicine works on balancing the body at all times. ...Read more

What will happen to the body's nervous systems & endocrine systems if homeostasis is not maintained?

What will happen to the body's nervous systems & endocrine systems if homeostasis is not maintained?

Dysregulation: If homeostasis is completely lost, the body's nervous system and endocrine system would both become dysregulated. You could see all kinds of metabolic and acid-base problems, with altered mental status (delirium, hallucinations, etc) plus blood pressure changes and more. Thankfully, the body knows exactly how to respond to various conditions, so that homeostasis is dynamic, not static. ...Read more

What are the nervous system and endocrine system specialized to do to maintain homeostasis?

Thats a big question: That's a big question that people dedicate their lives to study and find out. All the systems are important in "homeostasis". Narrowing which "homostasis" to a single function or a specific organ may allow a more specific explanation; but still lots and lots of effects. ...Read more

If you have SARS, you will have impaired Gas exchange right? How long does it take to improve and maintain the patient's respiratory status?

If you have SARS, you will have impaired Gas exchange right? How long does it take to improve and maintain the patient's respiratory status?

It depends: Impaired gas exchange would generally be a late feature of the disease, calling for critical care. It very much depends on the particular virus on how aggressive it is. The same is true for how long it takes for recovery. Younger patients, in general, have better prognosis. ...Read more
