  2. What are the three functions of the skeletal system? Give examples.
    • Protects - Organs
    • Helps Structure - Support
    • Works with muscles for movement
  3. What is the purpose of the respiratory system?
    Respiratory system makes it possible to breath.
  4. What does the diaphragm do to assist respiration?
    It helps to pull air into the lungs and push air out of the lungs.
  5. What are the two types of respiratoration?
    • Aerobic - Uses oxegen
    • Anaerobic - Not dependent on oxegen
  6. How do muscles work to create movement of bones and the entire body?
    Muscles contract and relax helping us move and organs to function properly
  7. Where is blood made?
    Bone Marrow
  8. How do white blood cells and antibodies attack foreign invaders (microbes) as part of the immune system?
    White blood cells and antibodies attack intruders that are found in the blood system. The surround and attach to the invader and then digest them.
  9. What are the steps to the digest system?
    Mechanical and Chemical Digestion (to a form your body can use.)

    • 1. Mouth (teeth, tongue, saliva)
    • 2. Esophagus (parastalsis moves food)
    • 3. Stomach - 4 -6 hours (acids and Enzymes)
    • 4. Small Intestine (27 feet)- Nutrients are absorbed (live, bile, gall blatter, pankreas
    • 5. Large Intestine (colon) - Water is absorbed, 4 to 6 feet,
    • 6 Rectum
    • 7 Anus
    • 8. Feces
  10. What is one example how food changes physically and chemically in the digestive system?
    Physically - Teeth and tongue chew it apart

    Chemically - Stomack acids break down the food.
  11. List blood vessels from smallest to largest?
    • Capiallaries - Venules - Viens
    • or
    • Capillaries - Arterioles, Arteries

    (Rember two paths)
  12. Which blood vessels take blood to and away from the heart?
    To: Vena cava

    From: Decending Aorta
  13. What part of the blood promote clotting?
    White Blood Cells
  14. What is the name of the liquid part of the blood? What percent does it make up the blood?

    55% of the blood
  15. What is the difference of communicable and non-communicable disease?
    Communicable = leprosy, west nile, mumps, small pox

    Non-communicable = Survy, Sexually transmitted disease (STD)
  16. What is the definition of the lymphatic system? and What are four parts?
    • Drainage Network:
    • 1) Tonsils,
    • 2) Thymus,
    • 3) Spleen,
    • 4) Appendix
  17. What behaviors could transmit HIV?
    • Intimate sexual contact
    • IV drug use
  18. What are the three main parts of the circulatory system and the their functions?
    • Heart - Pumps oxegen rich blood to every living cell in the body.
    • Blood - gets oxygen from the lungs and nutrients from the digestive system
    • Blood Vessels - Carries blood throughout the body
  19. What is the route of Red Blood Cells through the heart, lungs, and vessels to circulate oxygen to boody cells and rid the body of waste?
    • 1) Born in bone marrow
    • 2) Goes to heart
    • 3) Heart pumps to lungs to get oxygen
    • 4) Travels through vessels
    • 5) Back to heart through the spleen and liver where it filters the waste.
    • 6) Begin again
  20. What is the best thing you can do to prevent communicable diseases?
    • Cover your mouth with you cough and sneeze
    • Avoid sexual contact
    • Wash your hands
