The Circulatory System is an organ system that passes, gases, hormones, blood cells, nitrogen waste products, etc. to and from cells in the body to help fight diseases and help stabilize body temperature and pH to maintain homeostasis. On average, the human body has about five liters of blood continually traveling through it by way of the circulatory system. The heart, the lungs, and the blood vessels work together to form the circle part of the circulatory system. Two types of fluids travel throughout the circulatory system: blood and lymph. The blood cells, heart, and blood vessels form the cardiovascular system. The lymph, lymph nodes, and lymph vessels form the lymphatic system. Together the cardiovascular system and the lymphatic system make up the circulatory system.
The Respiratory System is a biological system consisting of specific organs and structures used for the process of respiration. Respiration takes place in the respiratory organs called lungs. The route of air into the lungs to supply the body with oxygen is known as inhalation, and the passage of air out of the lungs to expel carbon dioxide is known as exhalation; this process is collectively called breathing or ventilation. In humans, the features of the respiratory system contain airways, lungs, and the respiratory muscles. Molecules of oxygen and carbon dioxide are passively exchanged, by diffusion, between the external environment and the blood.
The Respiratory and Circulatory system are highly dependent on each other. The Respiratory system is dependent on the Circulatory system because it relies on the Circulatory system to give the diaphragm oxygen so the lungs can take in oxygen and release carbon dioxide. The Circulatory system is reliant on the Respiratory system because it needs the Respiratory system to supply the blood cells with oxygen and rid them of carbon dioxide.
How does exercise effect heart and breath rate? How do different patterns on a musical instrument effect heart and breathing rate?
This lab has demonstrated that exercise increases the breaths per minute of the human body. It has also proven that notes on a musical instrument can effect heart and breathing rate, if only slightly. This lab was tested as accurately as possible, however, in my opinion, the heart and breathing rate could of been measured more accurately with more advanced equipment. This lab has raised many different questions and hypotheses. For example, I tested musical heart rate on a flute, which is a woodwind instrument. Another lab could be to test a different woodwind instrument like the clarinet, or a different instrument altogether, like the trumpet or the drums. I could also compare how different workouts effect heart and breathing rate, like push ups instead of running. Nevertheless, this lab has answered the questions posed and also revealed other possibilities for research, I look forward to testing these someday.
