RESPIRATORY SYSTEM

RESPIRATORY SYSTEM Respiratory system includes all the organs and tissues associated with the exchange of gases between the animal and its environment, leading to the release of energy. The purpose of respiration is to supply oxygen to the cell which burns down food to release energy.

Anaerobic respiration is also known as fermentation.

System of the body and its functions

System of the body and its functions Body systems are groups of organs and tissues that work together to perform important jobs for the body. Some organs may be part of more than one body system if they serve more than one function. Other organs and tissues serve a purpose in only one body system.   Respiratory System Allows gas exchange between cells and the environment. Includes trachea and lungs. The respiratory system brings air into the body and removes carbon dioxide. It includes the nose, trachea, and lungs. When you breathe in, air enters your nose or mouth and goes down a long tube called the trachea. The trachea branches into two bronchial tubes, or primary bronchi, which go to the lungs Digestive System/Excretory System Ingests food and breaks it down into usable nutrients. Excretes solid waste products. Includes the mouth, esophagus, stomach, and intestines Cardiovascular/Circulatory System Moves materials… Read More »System of the body and its functions
