Investigates the major body systems that are important during physical activity: the skeletal, muscular, cardiovascular, respiratory, and nervous systems. Examines each of these systems, their parts, their functions, and how they work. Also, explores the contribution and interaction of the systems when we exercise and while we are rest.
A Respiratory Care Therapist helps individuals when they can't breathe. Watch as a registered therapist shares how her training and two-year degree have given her the chance to play a pivotal role in caring for patients with respiratory needs. Part of the "Career Connections" series.
This video explores the wide range of defense mechanisms the body calls upon to fight foreign invaders in an effort to maintain health. Immune responses, diseases, and care of the immune system are some of the topics addressed. Concepts and terminology include: pathogen, defenses, lymph, phagocytes, macrophages, lymphocytes, humoral immunity, antibody, acquired immunity, vaccines, allergies, autoimmune disorders, AIDS, immune disorders, and care of the immune system.
Shows the human body systems: lungs, heart, and skeleton. Demonstrates the structures of the lungs, heart, and arteries and veins. Explains exchange of gas in the lungs, ventilation of the lungs, and how the heart works as a pump. Also discusses the role of the skeleton in providing support, protection, and anchorage for muscles, the importance of bone marrow, and the importance of calcium in giving strength to bones.
With every breath you take, the process of respiration is supplying cells in the body with oxygen they need to carry out important processes. This program highlights the major structures and functions of the respiratory system. Concepts and terminology include: nasal passage, pharynx, larynx, lungs, diaphragm, trachea, bronchial tubes, alveoli, gas exchange, pulmonary circulation, inhalation, exhalation, hemoglobin, asthma, bronchitis, smoking, lung cancer, and pneumonia.
In this video, Pinky and Petunia discuss the 11 major organ systems in the human body. These include the integumentary, skeletal, muscular, nervous, endocrine, cardiovasular, lymphatic, respiratory, digestive, urinary, and reproductive system. Part of "The Amoeba Sisters" series.
Special attention is given to the healthy maintenance of growing bodies. Concepts and terminology discussed include: body systems, cells, tissues, organs, health, and body needs.
Interviews with professionals and patients provide information on polluted air inside and outside, how it is caused, and what can be done about it. They also relate effects of breathing in polluted air, including asthma, emphysema, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and their treatments.
Explains why the body needs regular supplies of air and how these get to the body. The camera follows the process of breathing through the ultra-thin membrane of the lung into the blood, showing how the varying demand for oxygen is met by the exchange of information between the brain and the chest muscles and how the body rids itself of carbon dioxide.
The body is like a self-supporting hospital, able to deal with its own with wounds, bacterial invasions, fractures, and obstructions to its various passages. Follows the sequence of events over seconds and weeks when skin or bone is damaged, and shows the defensive reactions of blood clotting, fever, and mending of bone fractures.
Why is there such an alarming increase in the number of children with food allergies? More than three times as many children have food allergies now than twenty years ago. And one out of every three children is now allergic to something, be it food, animals, or plants. In searching for a fix, scientists are upending the conventional wisdom about what causes allergies and how to deal with them.
Part of the "Gunther's ER" series. The human brain suffers irreversible damage if deprived of oxygen for even a few minutes-a fact Dr. Gunther von Hagens demonstrates by utilizing human cadavers as examples. Simulating an artery injury to illustrate oxygen depletion through blood loss, von Hagens then focuses on problems affecting the trachea, the top priority for ER doctors. In order to show the major structures of the airway and how they can be blocked by foreign objects, von Hagens inserts an endoscope into his own throat and saws a frozen body's throat in half, revealing the major structures of the airway and their potential weaknesses. Red Cross first-aid expert Emma Rand explains simple techniques for clearing the airway, while emergency medicine consultant Dr. John Heyworth shows how paramedics treat complex trachea damage. NOTE: Viewer discretion is advised. Contains clinically explicit language and nudity.
Discusses the importance of monitoring the cardiovascular system and explains the process of respiration in the body. Animations demonstrate how the organs in the heart work to pump blood throughout the body. Other terminology includes: blood vessel, artery, pulse, vein, aorta, septum, atrium, ventricle, capillaries, pulmonary circulation, systemic circulation, coronary circulation, blood pressure, sphygmomanometer, plasma, red blood cells, white blood cells, platelet, lungs, and alveoli.
Human beings, like every living organism, are driven by two inherent needs: to survive, and ultimately, to reproduce. To accomplish the goals of survival and reproduction, we have inherited bodies crafted by evolution so that every individual human organism is an organic super factory, a living machine made up of systems that process fuel, build products, repair damage, expel waste, and defend against invaders. Introduces the complex physiological systems of the human body: muscular movement, digestion, circulation, respiration, nerves, glands, immunity, and reproduction. Also, illustrates and explains the cellular basis of life and the importance of carbon in organic chemistry.
The Magic School Bus is an award winning animated children’s television series based on the book series of the same title by Joanna Cole and Bruce Degen. It is notable for its use of celebrity talent and being both highly entertaining and educational. At this year's Teacherathalon, Ms. Frizzle squares off with Mr. Sinew, a muscle-bound gym teacher. Sinew easily wins the first of the three events. Thinking there's a problem, the kids go inside Ms. Frizzle to check her out. The bus takes them through her lungs to the bloodstream, where they get pumped through her heart to her calf muscle. But when Frizzle's leg muscle collapses from the strain of winning the second event, the kids discover that her red blood cells can't get oxygen to her muscles fast enough. Can the kids help Frizzle recover in time to win the final race?
Diagram of the internal view of the female reproductive system. Design modalities for the image include braille with and without labels, print with and without labels in greyscale, color, and texture.
Research in biology would be impossible without a common framework for grouping and distinguishing species. Carl Linnaeus was the first to propose a classification system of organisms. His system developed into the organizational structure used in the life sciences today. Viewers also learn how new scientific names are created and how the existing system has been further refined using DNA studies.
The immune system has a tough job keeping human bodies free of harmful microbes. Humans come in contact with germs and bacteria every day, and the immune system is challenged to protect the body. Explores how the human body goes to battle against germs in order to keep people healthy and how sometimes the immune system requires assistance.
The endocrine system maintains the body's delicate chemical balance. Describes the location, function, and effects of the major endocrine glands, and notes their close relationship to the nervous system. Some discussion of diabetes and hormonal imbalances.
The body's best offense against microorganisms is its immune system. But what is it and how does it work? Why does it sometimes work against us? Discusses the non-specific (skin, tears, saliva, mucus, stomach acid) and specific (lymphatic system, spleen, thymus, bone marrow) defenses that keeps us healthy. Describes some autoimmune diseases and various marrow-produced cells.
