1

The respiratory and circulatory systems

New cards
2

play vital roles in supporting the overall

New cards
3

functioning of the human body. These

New cards
4

systems work collaboratively with other

New cards
5

Lesson 2: Respiratory and Circulatory

New cards
6

Systems working with other organ

New cards
7

systems

New cards
8

organ systems to ensure the delivery of

New cards
9

oxygen, removal of waste products, and

New cards
10

maintenance of homeostasis.

New cards
11

Understanding the interconnections

New cards
12

between these systems and their

New cards
13

coordination with other organs is

New cards
14

essential for comprehending human

New cards
15

physiology.

New cards
16

Respiratory System:

New cards
17

The respiratory system facilitates the

New cards
18

exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide

New cards
19

between the body and the environment.

New cards
20

 Structure and Function of the

New cards
21

Respiratory System:

New cards
22

Definition: The respiratory system

New cards
23

includes organs involved in

New cards
24

breathing, such as the nose,

New cards
25

pharynx, larynx, trachea, bronchi,

New cards
26

and lungs.

New cards
27

Characteristics: Its primary

New cards
28

function is to supply oxygen to

New cards
29

the body and remove carbon

New cards
30

dioxide through the process of

New cards
31

respiration.

New cards
32

Example: The lungs, the main

New cards
33

respiratory organs, contain

New cards
34

millions of tiny air sacs called

New cards
35

alveoli, where oxygen and carbon

New cards
36

dioxide exchange occurs.

New cards
37

 Gas Exchange in the Lungs

New cards
38

Definition: Gas exchange refers to

New cards
39

the diffusion of oxygen from the

New cards
40

lungs into the bloodstream and

New cards
41

the release of carbon dioxide

New cards
42

from the bloodstream into the

New cards
43

lungs.

New cards
44

Characteristics: Oxygen enters the

New cards
45

bloodstream, binds with

New cards
46

hemoglobin in red blood cells,

New cards
47

and is transported to body

New cards
48

tissues. Carbon dioxide, produced

New cards
49

as a waste product, is expelled

New cards
50

during exhalation.

New cards
51

Example: During vigorous

New cards
52

exercise, the demand for oxygen

New cards
53

increases, prompting faster

New cards
54

breathing and enhanced gas

New cards
55

exchange to meet the body's

New cards
56

needs.

New cards
57

Circulatory System:

New cards
58

The circulatory system ensures the

New cards
59

transportation of oxygen, nutrients,

New cards
60

hormones, and waste products

New cards
61

throughout the body.

New cards
62

 Structure and Function of the

New cards
63

Circulatory System

New cards
64

Definition: The circulatory system

New cards
65

comprises the heart, blood

New cards
66

vessels, and blood, which

New cards
67

collectively distribute substances

New cards
68

within the body.

New cards
69

Characteristics: Its primary

New cards
70

functions include the

New cards
71

transportation of oxygen and

New cards
72

nutrients to tissues, removal of

New cards
73

metabolic waste products, and

New cards
74

circulation of hormones.

New cards
75

Example: The heart, a muscular

New cards
76

organ, pumps oxygenated blood

New cards
77

to the body tissues through

New cards
78

arteries and receives

New cards
79

deoxygenated blood back via

New cards
80

veins.

New cards
81

 Blood and Its Components

New cards
82

Definition: Blood is a fluid

New cards
83

connective tissue consisting of

New cards
84

plasma and various types of cells.

New cards
85

Characteristics: It carries oxygen,

New cards
86

nutrients, hormones, and waste

New cards
87

products, while also playing a role

New cards
88

in immune response and

New cards
89

maintaining homeostasis.

New cards
90

Example: Red blood cells contain

New cards
91

hemoglobin and transport

New cards
92

oxygen, while white blood cells

New cards
93

help fight infections and platelets

New cards
94

aid in blood clotting.

New cards
95

 Transport of Substances in the

New cards
96

Body

New cards
97

Definition: The circulatory system

New cards
98

facilitates the transport of

New cards
99

substances, including oxygen,

New cards
100

carbon dioxide, nutrients,
