    Notes: Unit 3

    11 body systems:

    1. Circulatory System/Cardiovascular System – pumps blood and oxygen to body
    2. Respiratory System – takes in oxygen and releases carbon dioxide
    3. Muscular system – helps you move
    4. Skeletal System – supports and protects body
    5. Digestive System – breaks down food/nutrients
    6. Urinary System/Excretory System – removes waste
    7. Lymphatic System/Immune System – helps fight disease
    8. Nervous System – sends messages to the body
    9. Endocrine System - hormones
    10. Reproductive System – different for both male and females
    11. Integumentary System – skin system, protective cover


    Unit 3 Notes

    Organ Systems –

    • Cardiovascular - Transports oxygen & nutrients to the cells and transports wastes, carbon dioxide, and other substances away from the cells; it can also help stabilize body temperature - Organs are the Heart, blood, and blood vessels
    • Lymphatic - Defends against infection and disease and transfers lymph between tissues and the blood stream –Organs include Lymph, lymph nodes, and lymph vessels
    • Digestive - Processes foods and absorbs nutrients, minerals, vitamins, and water - Mouth, salivary glands, esophagus, stomach, liver, gallbladder, pancreas, small intestine, and large intestine
    • Endocrine - Provides communication within the body via hormones and directs long-term change in other organ systems to maintain homeostasis - Pituitary, pineal, thyroid, parathyroids, pancreas, adrenals.
    • Integumentary - Provides protection and fluid loss; involved in temperature control - Skin, hair, and nails.
    • Muscular - Provides movement, support, and heat production - Skeletal, cardiac, and smooth muscles
    • Nervous - Collects, transfers, and processes information and directs short-term change in other organ systems - Brain, spinal cord, nerves, and sensory organs—eyes, ears, tongue, skin, and nose
    • Reproductive - Produces gametes—sex cells—and sex hormones; ultimately produces offspring - Fallopian tubes, uterus, vagina, ovaries, mammary glands (female), testes, vas deferens, seminal vesicles, prostate, and penis (male)
    • Respiratory - Delivers air to sites where gas exchange can occur - Mouth, nose, pharynx, larynx, trachea, bronchi, lungs, and diaphragm
    • Skeletal - Supports and protects soft tissues of the body; provides movement; produces blood cells; and stores minerals - Bones, cartilage, joints, tendons, and ligaments
    • Urinary/Excretory - Removes excess water, salts, and waste products from the blood and body and controls pH - Kidneys, ureters, urinary bladder, and urethra
