Respiratory 1. Lungs bring in air to the proper body temperature and moisturize it to the right humidity level. American Lung Association. (2018, October 15). How Lungs Work. Retrieved August 16, 2019, from - diseases/how-lungs-work/ Lungs-Oxygen enters our lungs as part of the air that we breathe. It goes to the blood vessels deep in our lungs and then on to all parts of our body. As our body uses oxygen, it makes a waste product called carbon dioxide. We get rid of carbon dioxide when we breathe out. ( - program/normal-lung-function/ ) 2. Your bronchial tubes are lined with CILIA (like very small hairs) that move like waves. American Lung Association. (2018, October 15). How Lungs Work. Retrieved August 16, 2019, from Bronchial tubes- bronchial tubes, which branch into smaller tubes called bronchioles, are sometimes referred to as bronchi or airways. People with asthma have bronchial tubes that are inflamed. This means that the airways swell and produce lots of thick mucus. The bronchial tubes are also overly sensitive, or hyperreactive, to certain things like exercise, dust, or cigarette smoke. ( ) 3. The bronchioles are about the same thickness as a hair strand. Dowshen, S. (Ed.). (2018, June). Your Lungs & Respiratory System (for Kids). Retrieved August 16, 2019, from Bronchioles- the main airways (bronchi) branch off into smaller and smaller passageways, the smallest of which are called bronchioles. At the end of the bronchioles are tiny air sacs (alveoli). ( - conditions/bronchiolitis/multimedia/bronchioles-and-alveoli/img-20008702 ) 4. A person hiccups because the diaphragm moves in an awkward way that causes them to inhale air unexpectedly which hits the vocal cords.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
