The excretory system is the system that removes waste from the body.
The kidneys remove waste from the blood and help regulate body chemistry.
The urinary system works mainly through the kidneys which contain millions of nephrons that filter waste and
transform it into urine for excretion.
The lungs excrete carbon dioxide from the body.
The skin excretes waste water and salts from the body.
The spleen removes worn-out red blood cells.
The lymph nodes remove foreign cells and pass them on the blood for excretion.
The common symptoms of kidney ailments are difficulty in urination, abdominal pain and blood in the urine.
Kidney disorders may be detected through: (1) urinalysis; (2) measuring the concentration of some substances
in the blood, and (3) kidney imaging.
I can take care of my kidneys by eating the proper diet, exercising, practicing proper hygiene and having
regular physical checkups.

The urinary system, consisting of a pair of kidneys, a pair of ureters, the bladder and the urethra, excretes
most of the body’s waste.
The kidneys common filtering units called nephrons.
Carbon dioxide, water vapor and heat are removed from the blood by the lungs.
The skin excretes waste water, salts and other unnecessary substances.
The liver changes toxic substances so they are easier to excrete with the urine.
The spleen filters blood and removes worn-out red blood cells, while the lymph nodes filters tissue fluid to
remove waste.

The respiratory consists of an upper and lower tract. The upper tract is made up of the nose, nasal cavity and
pharynx. The lower tract is made up of the larynx, trachea, bronchi, bronchioles, alveoli and lungs.

The trachea or windpipe is found below the pharynx.

The epiglottis is the flap of cartilage that closes the trachea during swallowing so that food is prevented from
entering the lungs.

Alveoli are the tiny air sacs found at the end of each bronchiole in the lungs.

The lungs are saclike organs in which the exchange of gases (oxygen and carbon dioxide) between the
atmosphere and the blood takes place.
The main function of the respiratory system is breathing. Breathing is taking in air and forcing it out of the
body. During breathing, the body takes in oxygen and gets rid of carbon dioxide.

Air enters the body through the respiratory tract. Along the way, dust and bacteria are trapped by hairs and
mucus so the air that reaches the lungs is clean, warm and moist.

The diaphragm is a sheet of dome-shaped muscle that separates the chest cavity from the abdomen.

For inhalation, the diaphragm and rib muscles contract and make the chest cavity larger. This makes the
pressure in the lungs lower than the outside pressure, so air moves into the lungs.

For exhalation, the diaphragm and rib muscles relax and make the chest cavity smaller. The pressure in the
lungs is greater than the pressure outside, so air flows out.

Exchange of gases takes place in the lungs. Blood takes in oxygen from the lungs and leaves carbon dioxide
and water vapor there to be exhaled.

Air contains, dust, bacteria, viruses and other harmful particles that can cause ailments of the respiratory
system. It is necessary to treat any infection that affects the respiratory system to prevent it from becoming
