*An Important Muscle*
The Gluteus Maximus is the strongest muscle
in the body! Its the buttocks. Its responsible
for hip movement and thigh movement

*An Important Muscle*
The Stapedius is the smallest muscle in the
body. The Stapedius dampens the ability of
the stapes vibration, and it protects our
inner ear from high noise levels. Including
our own voice.

What Disease Affect
Muscles
Myasthenia Gravis
A neuromuscular autoimmune
disease. It affects the use of
muscles. It leaves communication
between the nerve and the muscle
interrupted, and also leaving the
muscle weak and fatigued.

Causes and Symptoms
of Myasthenia Gravis
“Myasthenia gravis is caused by a defect in
the transmission of nerve impulses to
muscles.”

Site: “Google”

“The symptoms of myasthenia gravis may
include eye muscle weakness, eyelid drooping
(ptosis), blurry or double vision (diplopia),
unstable gait, a change in facial expression,
difficulty in swallowing, shortness of breath,
impaired speech, and weakness in the arms,
hands, fingers, legs, and neck”.

Big Question !
How do muscles(skeletal muscular system) work together with the circulatory system to maintain
Homeostasis ?
Homeostasis basically means ‘keeping things constant’. It comes from the two greek words
“homeo” and “stasis” , meaning similar and stable. Both systems have an important relationship.
During overbearing periods of physical activity, the muscles in our body need oxygen. This is where
the circulatory system comes in, and provides the blood to the muscles. Which is carrying the air.
When the body is at rest , blood carries nutrients to the muscles that restore and repair them. Now
benefiting the circulatory system, the more active and healthier the skeletomuscular system is , the
better the circulatory system is. When we exercise our muscles, it allows blood to return to the heart
through our veins, and it increases strength and size of our hearts. Simplifying everything, both
systems work together to keep the body stable ; concurring to maintain homeostasis.
