Respiratory System

The respiratory system includes the lungs and the airway. The questions in this category focus mainly on the anatomical and physiological processes associated with breathing.
trachea, bronchi, brochioles, terminal bronchioles, respiratory  bronchioles, alveolar ducts, alverolar sacs
Pulmonary Fibrosis is the formation of fibrous tissue in the lung. It was described by the doctor as the lung turning to leather. It can also be described as scarring of the lung.We were told that there is no known cause.
If the manual ventilation is not performed correctly it leads to  stomach inflation and thus leads to gastric  regurgitation,aspiration, pneumonia.This stomach inflation may  increase intra-gastric pressure, restrict lung movements, and so  reduce the respiratory system compliance.
A amphibian has neither lungs or gills
The lung capacities are measurements of two or more volumes. The  vital capacity (VC) measures the maximum amount of air that can be  inhaled or exhaled during a respiratory cycle. It is the sum of the  expiratory reserve volume, tidal volume, and inspiratory reserve  volume. The inspiratory...
yes you have a esophagus for when you eat food that has muscles that pushes food down to your stomach, that's why you can swallow even if your upside down and you have a trachea for air.
It depends on your size, but also the area you grew  up in. People who live in areas with thinner air  will develop larger lungs.  
polloution, gas, cancer, sprays (etc.)
To better aid in the critical job of gas exchange. That is also why  they utilize simple squamous as their preferred cell type Less  cells to go through to exchange Oxygen and carbon dioxide.
The Pharynx is the part of the throat that is behind the mouth and  nasal cavity and above the esophagus and the trachea, or the tubes  going down to the stomach and lungs.
Lung capacity or lung volume is the amount of air a person's lungs can hold. The average human's lungs hold 6 liters of air. Lung volume can change depending on one's altitude, age, gender, height, and activities (including sports, singing, playing woodwind instruments, etc.) among others.
breathing in, expands the chest which in turn lowers the pressure in the thoracic cavity. The lower pressure causes air to fill the lungs, the same lower pressure cause the pressure in the right atria to be lower, allowing for more blood to flow in, increasing the venous input thus increasing the...
The cells in the trachea has got cilia. These cilia play veryimportant role in respiration. They expel any foreign particles outof your respiratory tract. These cilia gets damages by chronic andsevere smoking. The stratified ciliated epithelium is replaced bystratified squamous epithelium. It no...
Without the lungs you wouldn't be able to get oxegen or carbon dioxide in your body.That is why the lungs is a very important part of your respitory system.
Answer . I'm not sure I understand the question- if you want a list of respiratory diseases for an assignment for your science class, here are a few:. Asthma. Pulmonary Disease (something smokers get). Croup (something children get). Common cold. bronchitis. Hope that helps!. Heather (an MD from...

They are many theories as to why we yawn but no one knows positively. Click the link to read more.
Oxygen (O2) and Carbon Dioxide (CO2)
It allows for rapid diffusion of gasses.
tuberculosis is a respiratory disease and the first and foremost attack will be ob the alveoli in the lungs.symptoms are blood with sputum , loss of appetite , vomit ( may be with blood ).
1. Your respiratory system brings in oxygen and takes out carbon dioxide, which is very important for every system in your body. 2. If your body is in metabolic alkalisis, which means you have a pH above normal range of 7.35-7.45, your respiratory system will respond with slower breathing to...
Expand into the trachea when swallowing a food bolus (chunk of food)
Many things can harm the lungs. Like smoking, or any smoke in  general that may be dangerous to your health. Pollution is another  one, even though it may not be as harmful to the lungs as smoke  would be.
Rheumatoid arthritis' may lead to pleuritis, that is, Fluid may collect around one or both lungs. Lungs may develop pulmonary fibrosis i.e tissues may become stiff or overgrown. The upshot of these conditions being difficulty with breathing.
  == Answer ==   Lungs get coated with soot, which reduces their ability to act as an exchange barrier, making breathing and gaseous exchange harder.
the blood that returns to the lungs is deoxygenated9 devoid of oxygen) and so blood returns to the lungs to expel the carbon dioxide and to get full supply of oxygen so that it can supply oxygen to the various cells of the body
I don't know what he's saying(=What im saying is that if you beath though your nose arnt you breathing though your lungs
Yes it does. I yawn all evening and my eyes tear a lot. Chewing gum stops it.
there are a bunch of tubes in our system that help us breath way better...i think lungs would be part but i dont have a specific name for it....(nice kids using the internet for your homework) lol :)
The lungs are part of the respiratory system! they help the circulatory by giving oxygen, but they are just respiratory.
they supply oxygen to red blood cells, which in turn supplies oxygen to your muscles and brain...which are required to live.
pseudostratified columnar epithelium to ciliated columnar epithelium in the smaller bronchioles
all the heat and BLACK smoke.
Tuberculosis Histoplasmosis Extrinsic allergic alveolitis Silicosis Coal workers pneumoconiosisAnkylosing spondylitis Radiotherapy Sarcoidosis
Bronchioles
On average a person will pass out at the 2 min. mark but trained professionals can hold up to 11 mins.
Human lungs do not react well to any form of smoke inhalation; intentional or unintentional.
Air entering a tracheostomy would not be warmed, filtered for removal of microorganisms and dust particles, or humidified by the nasal passages or oropharynx. The patient may experience irritation around and inside the tracheostomy opening (due to dryness), coughing, and respiratory infections.
no probably not because they need it to purify their air so the  dont get stufff like carbon monoxide in their lungs yikes
If, when you exhaled, all the air in your lungs escaped you wouldn't receive a substantial amount of oxygen to nurish your lungs or your body for that matter.
By hyperventilating , or overbreathing, there is a rapid decrease  of carbon dioxide in the blood. To regain balance, breath through  pursed lips or cover mouth and one nostril until the episode  subsides.
Anything you breathe in, dust, germs particulates, all pass through the lungs, so no; the air inside would not be sterile. It'd be contaminated by anything you've taken in.
== Answer ==   No, but they will not pull so hard on the leash afterwards.     == Answer ==   It is believed that over a period of several years, a lot of the visible damage is repaired - so much of the tar, etc, in the lungs is eventually removed - but it depends on how long you have...
When we pull back the muscles and skin, the first organs we can see are the liver and heart.   The lungs are the essential organs of respiration; they are two in number, placed one on either side within the thorax, and separated from each other by the heart and other contents of the mediastinum ...
Oxygen is picked up from your lungs and distributed throughout the body by red blood cells which travel through the blood-stream to the heart.... :) the waste gas is carried to the lungs by the circulatory system are able to pass from the cappillaries to the alveoli so they can be removed from the...
Gases as a law exist independently of each other Gases move rapidly and randomly So in the alveoli (lungs air bags) we have "fresh" air entering this has Approx 80% Nitrogen 19%oxygen and a little carbon-di-oxide and other gases.In our blood we have high carbon-di-oxide levels in the air we have low...
No, bronchi is a passage of airway in the respiratory tract that conducts air into the lungs. No gas exchange takes place in this part of the lungs.
The lungs are part of the respiratory (breathing) system.
because its respritory system is in direct contact with a watery environment
If by "broken" you mean not able to exchange air (CO2 and Oxygen), then the likely answer is Emphysema. The air sacs (called aveoli) are elastic-like and they inflate and collapse completely in a healthy lung. With Emphysema, they gradually lose more and more of this elasticity, and remain partly...
The walls of alveoli are thin to allow the exchange of gases (Co2 and O2) between blood capillaries and the aveoli in the lungs.
A lot. Dogs, Cats. Almost all animals have lungs.

Breathing...........Breathing...........and Humping okay that was a lie, but if you are still wondering what the third main function of the respiratory system refer to my other two functions.
There are two primary bronchi which are the first divisions branching off from the trachea to take air into the lungs. The primary bronchi then subdivide into lobar bronchi and then again into tertiary bronchi which continue to divide until they are tiny bronchioles which supply each of the alveoli...
nothing, there is no such thing as a safe cigarette. Smoking drugs is even worse for your lungs plus its illegal

It is absobed into the small intestine:)
Lungs , trachea , larynx ,nasal cavities . Pharynx is common with digestive system .
  It is medication taken by an inhauler or hand held nebulizer which helps to open up the bronchi to help people who are having a difficult time with breathing. Most frequently seen in asthma patients.
The bronchi tubes allow the air to enter the lungs.
The lungs is composed of sections called lobes. combining form for lobes is lob/o
The left lung, although smaller than the right lung, does exactly the same thing: takes oxygen from the air and adds it to hemoglobin in the blood, so that all of the cells in the body can have oxygen to use in metabolism.
  The diaphragm of the lung is the muscle below the lungs that stretches the lungs, helping them expand when you inhale. When you exhale, it helps push air up out of the lungs.
smoking, overeating, alcohol, and stuff
haemoglobin a comles compound of protein with iron
Yawing is a sign that your brain needs more oxygen. Try taking deep breaths and relaxing.
  you may have bronchitis.
When we talk, we tend to let small bits of air out. We proceed to get more oxygen in our lungs when we start pausing or breathing in between sentences and coversations.
gas exchange occurs in the alveoli in the lungs ... every cell needs 02 a general rule is air goes in and out aka(co2 u have to blow off-or out) and blood goes round and round .. 500ml is our tidal volume u need good gas exchange to keep the blood oxygenatedThe important principle to remember is...
The trachea functions as an airway pipe to the larynx.
