INHALING

  • RIBS ARE MOVED FORWARDS AND UPWARDS 
  • DIAPHRAM IS PULLED DOWN 
  • INCREASES IN SIZE AS IT SUCKS AIR INTO LUNGS

EXHALING

  • RIBS ARE PULLED DOWN AND BACK 
  • DIAPHRAM IS PULLED UP 
  • DECREASES THE SIZE OF THORDAIC CAVITY 
  • SQUEEZES OUT AIR FROM LUNGS

STEPS FOR BREATHING IN

1. AIR ENTERS THE NASAL PASSAGES.

2.PASSES DOWN TO THE TRACHEA 

3. ENTERS THE LUNGS. 

4. BELOW THE LUNGS STRATCHING ACROSS THE BASE OF THE CHEST IS THE DIAPHRAM 

5. THE RIBS AND DIAPHRAM MAKE AN AIRBAG IN WHICH THE LUNGS ARE PROTECTED.

GASEOUS EXCHANGE

  1. Gas exchange is the delivery of oxygen from the lungs to the bloodstream, and the elimination of carbon dioxide from the bloodstream to the lungs. It occurs in the lungs between the alveoli and a network of tiny blood vessels called capillaries, which are located in the walls of the alveoli.

FUNCTIONS OF THE VERTEBRAL COLUMN

  • SUPPORT: the collumn holds up the head, keeps the body upright and transfers weight down to the pelvis.
  • MOVEMENT: the bones and joints acting together allow movement in all directions.
  • PROTECTION: inside each vertebra are bundles of nerves that make up the spinal cord. this controls all body movement and functions.

FOUR TYPES OF BONE

  • LONG BONES: femur
  • SHORT BONES: phlanges 
  • FLAT BONES: scapular
  • IRREGULAR BONES: vertabrae

SYNOVIAL JOINTS

  • HINGE: allows movement in one plane only, eg. the elbow
  • PIVOT: allows rotation at the neck 
  • BALL AND SOCKET: allows for as full range a range of movement as possible, eg. the hip
  • SADDLE: allows movement in two directions, eg. bae of thumb

MOVEMENT OF JOINTS

  • FLEXION: when a joint closes
  • EXTENSION: when a joint opens 
  • ABDUCTION: when a body part moves away from the centre of the body 
  • ROTATION: when a bone moves around a pivot joint
