The Lungs

By: Lexi Ong, Mackenzie Folley, Sarah Bunn

Where are the lungs located?

The lungs are located in the upper chest of the company. In which is also known as the Respiratory department!

Five Fun Facts about The Lungs

1. The study of lung diseases is known as pulmonology. 2. Asthma is a common disease that affects the lungs. Asthma attacks happen when your airways narrow after being irritated. The narrow airways make it hard for you to breathe in air. 3. People who have a large lung capacity can send oxygen around their body faster. You can increase you lung capacity with regular exercise. 4. Your left and right lungs aren’t exactly the same. The lung on the left side of your body is divided into two lobes while the lung on your right side is divided into three. The left lung is also a bit smaller in which allows room for your heart. 5. The primary functions of your lungs are to transport oxygen from the air you breathe into your bloodstream while taking away carbon dioxide, which is released into the air when you breathe out.

You cant let the lungs go! Too much would be lost!!

Why are the Lungs important to us?

Whenever you inhale and exhale, Oxygen gets supplied in through your lungs. We get Oxygen which gets supplied into your blood which is essential to keep you alive. Lungs are a part of the pulmonary system which is the essential Respiration organ.

Fun Facts about the Respiratory System

1. The lungs are the main organs of the respiratory system2. We breathe 13 pints of air every minute.3. Each lung contains 300-350 million respiratory units called alveoli making it a total of 700 million in both lungs.4. More than half a liter of water per day is lost through breathing.5. Yawning brings more oxygen to the lungs.6. People under 30 years of age take in double the amount of oxygen in comparison to a 80 year old.

System's Interdependence

Respiratory system and the digestive systemThe digestive system breaks down food into simpler substances that the body can use including proteins. This helps the respiratory system because the lungs need nutrients. The respiratory system helps the digestive system by giving oxygen to the digestive system Respiratory system and the circulatory systemThe circulatory system is very useful. This system transports the food nutrients, and oxygen to the body cells. It also delivers of carbon dioxide and waste products. This helps the respiratory system by transporting nutrients to keep the lungs clean, and healthy. In return the respiratory system allows air to keep the circulatory system going.

Who should you fire??:(

I believe that you should fire the gall bladder. He doesn’t always do his job very affectively and in most company’s like us is fired when the goings get tough. He can cause massive pain in the company and extra funds. If you ask me he is just a waste of the company’s time.

My Co-Worker ( The Trachea)

She is the main trunk of the system of tubes by which air passes to and from the lungs in vertebrates. She is almost the full support of out system.

What happens if your Lungs are removed

My function is to take in air for the rest of the body. I then hand it off to the Circulatory system which transfors it. The oxygen is taken to the mitocandria. It is vital that the mitocondira recevies the air because without it, it cannot create energy. without energy you would have no muscle movment, electrical impuses (ect.) and your body would shut down slowly.
