How does the respiratory system help maintain homeostasis?

How does the respiratory system help maintain homeostasis?

This is complex: By exhaling you get rid of co2 which helps control acidity, inhaling you bring in o2 energy metabolism. Inhaling and exhaling affect blood return to the heart as well as may affect the release of stress hormones probably an hour lecture to med students to cover. ...Read more

Hows does the cardiovascular system and the respiratory system work together to maintain homeostasis?

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

How is homeostasis maintained in relation to the cv and repiratory systems?

How is homeostasis maintained in relation to the cv and repiratory systems?

System: The two systems work together and require each other to function. If they weren't connected, symmetry and coordination wouldn';t be effective. As exercise demand increases both respiration increases and heart rate increases together to provide oxygen and glucose to the tissues. ...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 deoxygentaed 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

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

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. ...Read more

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. ...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?

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

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. ...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
