Interdependent Organ Systems

Interdependent Organ Systems

Your organs do not work alone

They must be linked to other organs in order to carry out all the functions required

Linking of organs is called an organ system

The cells in tissues must be healthy for organs and organ systems to functionHuman Organ SystemsSkeletal System

Made up of bones and cartilage

Provides support for movement

Provides points for attachment for other tissues

Human Organ SystemsMuscular System

Made up of skeletal muscles including tendons and ligaments

Allows you to move from place to place

Moves substances through your body

Human Organ SystemsCirculatory System

Made up of the heart, blood vessels and blood

Delivers nutrients

Moves gases

Removes waste

Human Organ SystemsRespiratory System

Made up of nose, trachea and lungs

Allows oxygen from the air to enter the body

Allows waste carbon dioxide to exit the body

Human Organ SystemsNervous System

Made up of the brain, spinal cord and nerves

Sends and receives messages throughout the body

Controls behaviour, movements and body processes (digestion, circulation etc.)Human Organ SystemsDigestive System

Made up of the mouth, salivary glands, esophagus, stomach, liver, gall bladder, pancreas, intestines

Breaks food down so nutrients can be absorbed by blood and transported to all cells

The colon expels solid waste

Human Organ SystemsExcretory System

Made up of kidneys, ureters, bladder and urethra

Removes liquid waste and extra water from the body

Filters the blood

Human Organ SystemsIntegumentary System

Made up of skin, hair, nails and sweat glands

Skin hair and nails protect the body

Sweat glands help maintain body temperature

Human Organ SystemsEndocrine System

Made up of hormone producing glands

Hormones (chemicals) that regulate every body function

Glands like the pituitary, thyroid, and pancreas produce hormones that carry message to other parts of the body

The hypothalamus in the brain controls the endocrine and nervous systemHuman Organ SystemsLymphatic System

Made up of lymph, lymph nodes, lymph vessels and lymphoid tissues

Protects the body by destroying and removing any invading organisms and abnormal cells

Human Organ SystemsReproductive System

Made up of organs for reproduction

Different for males and females
