1. External nares- External nares are located on the top of a frog's snout, and look like small slits. These make it possible for the frog to float on the surface of the water, leaving its external nares above the water level for inhaling oxygen. 2. Internal Nares- Internal nares are on the roof of a frog's mouth. Air passes from the external nares into the mouth through these openings. They can be closed using a sphincter muscle when the frog is submerged under water to prevent water from entering the mouth and therefore the lungs. 3. Pharynx- Pharynx is a tube like structure that connects the nasal and oral cavities to the larynx. Pharynx is nothing but throat. It is divided into nasal, oral, and laryngeal pharynx. The nasopharynx is located posterior to the nose and is above the soft palate. The oropharynx houses the faucial, or palatine, tonsils. The laryngopharynx extends from the hyoid bone to the cricoid cartilage. The entrance of the larynx is formed by the epiglottis. 4. Larynx- The larynx, or voice box, connects the pharynx to the trachea and consists of carilage, ligaments, connective tissue, muscles, and the vocal cords. The cartilage provides a rigid structural framework for the larynx and trachea below, making sure that the airways is open at all time.
Well as you probably already know it is part of the respiratory system and it is your voice box. Your larynx is where sound is, well, produceded. Your larynx also takes in air and sends it to your lungs. 5. Trachea- The trachea is also known as the windpipe. It is a bony tube, which connects the nose and mouth to the lungs, hence is an important part of the respiratory system in vertebrates. function is to assist in breathing as grown frogs do not have gills, 6. Lungs- A frogs lungs provide adult frogs the ability to breath not only through their skin, but to also be able to inhale…...

Asthma and the Respiratory System

...Organ Systems and Diseases Asthma and The Respiratory System Asthma is a chronic disease of the airways of your lungs. These airways are also known as bronchial tubes; In the case of asthma, chronic means that it never goes away. Asthma is a disease that affects your lungs. It is one of the most common long-term diseases of children, but adults have asthma, too. Asthma causes repeated episodes of wheezing, breathlessness, chest tightness, and nighttime or early morning coughing. Asthma occurs when the airways in your lungs (bronchial tubes) become inflamed and constricted. The muscles of the bronchial walls tighten, and your airways produce extra mucus that blocks your airways. Signs and symptoms of asthma range from minor wheezing to life-threatening asthma attacks. Asthma can't be cured, but its symptoms can be controlled. Management includes avoiding asthma triggers and tracking your symptoms. There are many symptoms: Asthma signs and symptoms range from minor to severe, and vary from person to person. You may have mild symptoms such as infrequent wheezing, with occasional asthma attacks. Between episodes you may feel normal and have no trouble breathing. Or, you may have signs and symptoms such as coughing and wheezing all the time or have symptoms primarily at night or only during exercises. Asthma signs and symptoms include: Shortness of breath Chest tightness or pain Trouble sleeping caused by shortness of breath, coughing or wheezing An audible whistling or......

Organ Donation

...Living Through Dying Organ donation can be a very difficult decision, which could be made easier through increased education and awareness on donating. Through my years as a Respiratory Therapist I have been exposed to the organ donation process. It can be a difficult decision for a patient’s family especially if it has not been communicated to the family what the individual wants. While it is a tough decision for some, the choice to donate a loved one’s organs means a second chance at life for people on organ waiting lists across the country. When patients are pronounced brain dead they are usually being kept physically alive on life support. Life support for these patients consists of a mechanical ventilator, which breathes for the patient as well as intravenous medications that help various bodily functions. The process for organ donation seems pretty clear cut, however the person making the decision is usually under a high degree of emotional distress, which presents the major gap in the debate about organ donation. It may be easier to go through the thinking process while not in mental distress over the loss (or the potential loss) of a loved one. In my experience as a respiratory therapist, I have been witness to families dealing with the sudden shock of losing a loved one traumatically, and there is no denying the emotion. Capacity to make decisions that are logical and precise are greatly diminished when handling the death of a loved one, especially when......

Organ Donor

...injury and respiratory diseases. Also, at this moment in Australia there are 79,000 patients on the transplant waiting list. Each day more than 100 people are added to the national transplant waiting list and 17 people die unnecessarily simply because the organ they need is not available. This is a crisis and it has a cure. Almost everyone has the power to save their live, including you and me. Imagine that for the past 5 years you have been to hospital 3 times a week for dialysis, the only thing can help you at this point is a new kidney, because the dialysis is not a lifetime solution. Think about how frustrating and anxious you might be to live a life waiting for a organ transplant that could be much more easily if a great amount of people donate it. After a transplant of a vital organ, the average survival rate is over 80%. A massive increase from the 20% that would live without the surgery. With medical breakthroughs, and a organ and tissue donation, you can help save the live of many people all over the world. One person who donates organs (hearts, lungs, liver, kidneys, pancreas and intestines) can save up to ten lives, while a tissue donor (corneas, bone, skin, heart valves, tendons, veins, etc.) can improve 12 or more lives by restoring eyesight, helping fight infections in burn patients and preventing the loss of mobility and disability. When asked if they would like to become organ donors, many people ask themselves "Why should I donate my organs? What are......

...Abraham Castillo Persuasive Speech Topic: Organ Donation Thesis Statement: Becoming an Organ Donor isn’t only an important decision for yourself, but also to the life you are capable of saving and having the power to save. I. Introduction- A. Attention Material/ Credibility Material: The Holidays are coming up, and some of us are anxious to see what the holidays may bring for us. How about if this gift we were patiently waiting wasn’t one you can find at your local retail store, but instead this was a gift you were on a waiting list for and it was life threatening. Shutong Hao (Tong Tong) received the heart of donor Matthew Mingin, a four-year-old described by his mother as “a polite and generous boy with a heart of gold.” With her new heart, Tong Tong was transformed into an energetic, happy child. Matthew’s gift helped save other lives as well. “One woman made the decision to become a donor when she heard our story,” says Shutong’smother. “We are so grateful.” B. Tie to Audience- Someone on the 10,000 donor list maybe someone you know either a relative or family member C. Thesis and Preview- Today I would like to talk to you about the need of organs in our country, how you may become an organ donor, finally how you’re family and the organ recipient’s benefit from your donation. [Transition: Organ donors] II. Body- It may be your next door neighbor or even a close relative that may need a donation. 1. In 1902, the first kidney......

Structure and Function of the Respiratory System

...The Structure and function of the Respiratory system The respiratory system is to enable the body achieve successful gas exchange, the system is specialize in properties allowing this process to function adequately. Firstly the Trachea which is your wind pipe has the structure of a long tube with strong C-rings of cartilage running down it, the reason of this is so that when you are laying down or moving organs such as your lungs don’t put pressure on your trachea as this would block the air flowing through this structure allows the function of the trachea to remain open at all times allowing us to breathe. The trachea along with the bronchi are all lined with ciliated cells, these cells have hair like structure which all rhythmically move in a sweeping motion. This is then supported by Goblet cells which produce Mucus so that dirt, bacteria and dust can stick to it, this then is supported by the ciliated cells which sweeps the mucus up the trachea to the epiglottis to be swallowed into the stomach and the pathogens then killed in the stomach or to be coughed out. This structure allows the function of disposing of bacteria and foreign pathogens as well as dirt so that it can be removed from our body. It’s important in the respiratory system that the structure allows efficient gas exchange. This is done by things such as the alveoli as this only has walls which are one cell thick which allows rapid diffusion rates. The alveoli also has a large service area because it......

...people who are suffering from lost work due to asthma or having to stay home to take care of their child with asthma. According to Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, in the last year, nearly 60 percent of kids missed school due to their asthma symptoms, while one third of adults missed work. Over a year's time, kids missed 4 days of school during the academic year, while adults missed a full work week. This means that asthma is the leading reason for kids to miss school and the fourth leading cause of an adult to miss work. This could cause serious disturbance in any household who might be suffering from asthma. References Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

...Respiratory Disease Paper Milton Dixon HSC/245 Shante Griffin What is Tuberculosis or TB some call it? Tuberculosis or TB is an bacterial disease that goes through the air also normally effects the lungs. Latent tuberculosis (TB) don’t bring on any indications. The indications of active tuberculosis rely on upon where inside the body tuberculosis microbes are developing. Tuberculosis that effects the lungs may bring about a cough that dont go away, torment in the midsection, and hacking up blood or sputum. Other regular manifestations incorporate feeling tired constantly, weight reduction, absence of longing, fever, chills, and sweating around evening time. Still, a few individuals with dynamic TB fell good and only cough sometimes. ("Human Diseases And Conditions", 2015). At the point when individuals with tuberculosis in the lungs or throat hack or either wheeze, they spread microscopic organisms in the air. Other individuals who inhale the same air may get to be contaminated with the microbes, which can stop in the lungs and start to develop. From that point, the microbes can travel through the blood and settle in some other piece of the body that’s including lymph hubs, urinary tract, joints, mind, bones, peritoneum, and heart. Individuals with dynamic tuberculosis are destined to offer it to those they invest a ton of energy with more than a long stretch, for example, relatives, close companions, and collaborators. Indeed, even with close......

Respiratory Distress

...Respiratory Distress Syndrome Respiratory distress syndrome (RDS) causes obstruction in the alveoli in the lungs. RDS affects newborn infants but rarely occurs in full term infants. RDS is primarily witnessed in infants of prematurity, usually less than 28 weeks gestation. RDS is more common in premature infants because the premature infant’s lungs aren't able to make enough surfactant. Surfactant is a liquid that coats the inside of the lungs and enables the alveoli to remain open so that infants can breathe in air once they're born. “Surfactant is necessary for lowering the surface tension in the alveoli so that they can stay open to allow the flow of gases. If surfactant levels are low, the alveoli do not expand and cannot receive air, leading the decreased gas exchange, low oxygen levels, and generalized distress throughout the body as cells do not receive the oxygen that they need to survive” Without sufficient surfactant, the lungs collapse and the infant has to work harder to breathe. The infant may not be able to breathe in enough oxygen to support the body's organs. This lack of oxygen circulating throughout the infant’s body can damage the baby's brain and various other organs if appropriate treatment is not delivered. Neonatal RDS can also be the result of genetic problems with lung development during the prenatal phase of the pregnancy. The earlier a baby is born, the less developed the lungs are and the higher the chance of neonatal RDS. ......

Respiratory and Metabolic Acidosis and Alkalosis

...Jennifer Jackson Respiratory and Metabolic Acidosis and Alkalosis Unit 7 Assignment 10/13/15 Anatomy and Physiology 2 Prof. Maryjoyce Rotella The acid-base balance in the body largely depends on the hydrogen ion (H+) concentration. In general, high H+ makes the solution acidic with pH less than 7 while low H+ will make the solution basic or alkaline with pH higher than 7 (Lewis, 2013). Acidosis develops when the arterial pH drops below 7.35 while alkalosis develops when the arterial pH rises above 7.45 (Appel & Downs, 2008). The normal metabolic balance generally keeps the carbonic acid and bicarbonate ion to 1: 20 ratio. As the ratio changes, the body will respond to acid-base imbalance through compensation mechanisms to control acids through buffer system by either releasing or taking up H+ depending on the pH changes. Deviations from normal PCO2 cause respiratory problems while deviations from the normal HCO3− cause metabolic problems. Respiratory alkalosis is a condition that occurs when there is carbonic acid deficit as PaCO2 drops to less than 35 mm Hg. The blood pH increases while PaCO2 decreases but the bicarbonate (HCO3−) undergoes no changes (Apple & Downs, 2008). Respiratory alkalosis is primarily caused by hyperventilation due to conditions that stimulate the respiratory center such as oxygen deficiency at high altitudes, pulmonary diseases, congestive...

Respiratory Disease

...Respiratory Disease HCS 245 September 7, 2015 Rebecca Riznyk Respiratory Disease There are several types of respiratory diseases that not only affect, but claim the lives of people in the United States each year; “COPD” Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, Lung cancer, Emphysema, and Pneumonia to name a few. Since smoking ban laws were enforced in public places lung cancer and its cause has become a controversial issue; this is why I chose lung cancer as the primary topic of respiratory disease. In this paper I will discuss lung cancers primary, secondary, and tertiary state as well as what makes it classified as such. I will also address the impact of Lung cancer on society as it relates to the business of health care and the use of resources. Lung cancer is classified by primary, secondary, and tertiary state. First or primary is to review behavior in secondary prevention; second, is to stress the need for behavioral research in tertiary prevention to shorten the delay of cancer treatment and diagnosis. Secondary prevention occurs when the disease is identified in the earliest stages when effective treatment can be administered so that mortality rates can be reduced. Tertiary prevention directly affects morbidity once symptoms or awareness has occurred. (Smith & Anderson, 1985) The chance of early detection and its success depends on clinical screening strategies and the stage of the disease at the time it is diagnosed. Lung cancer is a disease...

Respiratory Rate

...exercise as the need for oxygen increases the mean arterial blood pressure will also increase. Our data almost corresponds with this theory except that during light exercise we saw a slight decrease instead of increase. Respiration and Heart Rate 3. What is the relationship between respiratory rate, tidal volume and minute volume? Answer: the relationship between respiratory rate, tidal volume, and minute volume is that the tidal volume is the amount of air the lungs breathe in one breath. Minute volume is the number or breaths, breathed in one minute.. Respiratory volume is the frequency. Respiratory rate=minute volume divided by tidal volume. 4. What happened during light and heavy exercise to the heart rate? Briefly explain your findings. Answer: during both light exercise and heavy exercise our data showed that there was an increase in heart rate and then a decrease followed by another increase. Heart rate increases sharply at first due to the magnitude of exercise. During the exercise heart rate continue to increase due to the decrease in stroke volume. 5. What happened during light and heavy exercise to the respiratory rate? Briefly explain your findings. Answer ECG 6. What happened to the R-R interval and the heart rate during recovery? Answer 7. The R-R interval consists of the sum of QRS, S-T, T-P and P-R. Which one of these became appreciably shorter when the heart rate increased? What is......

Respiratory Syncytial Virus

...Running Head: RESPIRATORY SYNCYTIAL VIRUS Respiratory Syncytial Virus Breanna Kennelly Apollo College Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) causes acute respiratory tract infection in patients of all ages and is one of the most popular diseases of childhood. Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) infection, which manifests primarily as bronchiolitis and/or viral pneumonia, is the leading cause of lower respiratory tract (LRT) infection in infants and young children. RSV is the most common cause of bronchiolitis (inflammation of the small airways in the lungs) and pneumonia in children under one year of age in the United States. During the first year of life, most infants are infected with the virus. Most RSV infected children encounter symptoms in the upper respiratory tract and 20% to 30% develop lower respiratory tract disease with their first infection ( Certain conditions such as preterm birth, heart and lung disease and immunodeficiency increase the risk for severe RSV tract illness. RSV bronchiolitis could likely be related with short or long term complications including recurrent wheezing and oddity in pulmonary function. It is not uncommon for re-infection with RSV to occur throughout life. The virus presents similar to other respiratory infections and the common cold with symptoms including cough, wheezing, retractions, rales, tachypnea, shortness of breath, fever (usually low-grade), cyanosis, and runny nose. In very young infants......
