What happens to the respiratory system during exercise?
The airways into and out of the lungs and the lungs themselves make up your respiratory system. This system allows the exchange of gases
Because our respiratory system is part of our breathing and we all breath faster when we do exercise because the oxygen needs to get to the muscles quicker. Exercise also makes you fitter, so you will see an improvement on the respiratory system because your breathing will be more controlable... Therefore exercise defently effects the respiratory system :)
How does the respiratory system and the circulatory system work together to respond to your body's needs during vigorous exercise?
the circulatory system, the heart rate increases and blood flow increases to the exercising muscles, and lessens to the other parts of the body. Your respiratory system doesn't change except for the amount of air flow. (Addition): When your heart rate increases from anything in general, you tend to breathe heavier and faster depending on the amount of pressure your heart is being put into.
When you are exercising your respiratory system responses by your breathing rate increases and you start to breathe heavily, this happens because your muscles need more oxygen so you breathe deep and quicker so a supply of oxygen can get to the muscles, also when you finish exercise your breathing rate will decrease and start to recover. Another response from the respiratory system is the tidal volume, which increase as a response to exercise this…
The respiratory system is affected by exercise because when doing exercise the muscles need more oxygen and produce more carbon dioxide so the heart has to work quicker and you need to breathe faster and deeper to let the carbon dioxide exit quicker and the oxygen enter and be pumped around quicker.
I've began to get your meaning. You meant not a respiratory exercise, but how exercises affects your respiratory system. But short term is not adequate on this question, because exercises, specially aerobic ones improve your respiratory system conditions not for a short term, but as long you remain doing such exercises, and the effects are almost the same as on other organs. I think this question should be done on another form.
