  • These air sacs communicate with the external environment via a system of airways, or hollow tubes, of which the largest is the trachea , which branches in the middle of the chest into the two main bronchi . (wikipedia.org)
  • In the fourth week of development of the human embryo as the respiratory bud grows, the trachea separates from the foregut through the formation of tracheoesophageal ridges which fuse to form the tracheoesophageal septum and this separates the future trachea from the oesophagus and divides the foregut tube into the laryngotracheal tube.

  • Infection
  • This system helps your body resist infection by filtering out foreign matter, including germs, and producing cells (lymphocytes) to fight them. (lung.ca)
  • Infections
  • In a third line of defense and as a last resort, persistent bacterial infections which escape the innate immune system are eliminated by the adaptive immune system. (wikipedia.org)

  • The carotid body communicates with medullary respiratory neurons through sensory fibres that travel with the carotid sinus nerve, a branch of the glossopharyngeal nerve. (britannica.com)
  • Mouth
  • This helps to prevent the horse from inhaling food, but does not allow use of the mouth to breathe when in respiratory distress, a horse can only breathe through its nostrils. (wikipedia.org)
  • adult
  • Compared to the, on average, 23 number of branchings of the respiratory tree in the adult human, the mouse has only about 13 such branchings. (wikipedia.org)
  • Spread flat, the average adult male's respiratory surface would be about 750 sq ft (70 m 2 ), approximately the size of a handball court. (faqs.org)
  • cells
  • The lymph system, consisting of nodes (knots of cells) and connecting vessels, carries fluid throughout the body. (lung.ca)

  • Tonsils are not an important part of the germ-fighting system of the body. (lung.ca)
  • The genus Lepeta uses the whole of the mantle cavity as a respiratory surface, while many sea butterflies respire through their general body surface. (wikipedia.org)
  • Therefore, the functional capacity of a particular organ or system of the body, rather than the defect per se, is evaluated in determining the numerical designation 1, 2, 3, or 4. (wikipedia.org)
  • Systems of the body. (wikipedia.org)
  • skin
  • Because dogs and cats do not sweat through the skin, the respiratory system also plays an important role in regulation of temperature. (wsu.edu)
  • renal
  • The Multinational Association for Supportive Care in Cancer (MASCC) risk index can be used to identify low-risk patients (score ≥21 points) for serious complications of febrile neutropenia (including death, intensive care unit admission, confusion, cardiac complications, respiratory failure, renal failure, hypotension, bleeding, and other serious medical complications). (wikipedia.org)
  • Nervous System
  • Perphenazine has actions at all levels of the central nervous system, particularly the hypothalamus. (nih.gov)
  • Though mouth guards are primarily designed to protect the teeth, they can also vastly reduce the degree of force transmitted from a trauma impact point (jaw) to the central nervous system (base of the brain). (smilesbydrolenyn.com)

  • body's
  • Adrenal Health Nightly Restore helps maintain the body's systems that support a healthy response to stress. (gaiaherbs.com)
  • Malnutrition, the immune system, and infectious diseases operate in a cyclical manner: infectious diseases have deleterious effects on nutritional status, and nutritional deficiencies can lower the strength of the immune system which affects the body's ability to resist infections. (wikipedia.org)
  • great
  • The environment strongly influences public health in Albania, as for example air pollution and smog in urban areas such as in Tirana can result in great distress for those with respiratory conditions such as asthma. (wikipedia.org)
  • found
  • This indicates that Sulfolobus has a TCA cycle system similar to that found in mitochondria of eukaryotes. (wikipedia.org)
  • Other genes in the respiratory chain which partake in the production of ATP were not similar to what is found in eukaryotes. (wikipedia.org)
  • A Dutch analysis using the system found that lormetazepam could be suitable to be included in drug prescribing formularies, although zolpidem, zopiclone, and temazepam had higher scores and thus can be seen as relatively favorable. (wikipedia.org)
