What are the general characteristics of the lungs?
The lungs are responsible for the intake of air, and distributing the air and it's properties to the rest of the body, as well as filtering it and taking out harmful substances. The mucus membranes that line the nose, mouth, throat have mucus that traps dirt and foreign matter that we may breathe in. Tiny hairs (cilia) beat back and forth to quickly filter out any junk allowing us to breath in freash air.
Which bones have Para nasal cavity

Inspiratory reserve volume In men 3.3 In woman 1.9
Tidal volume in men 0.5 in women 0.5
Expiratory reserve volume in men 1.0 in women 0.7
Residual volume in men 1.2 in women 1.1

The LIVER: the liver is the largest and only bile producing organ.
Which structure is most responsible for absorption of water from the digestive tract?
Most digested molecules of food, as well as water and minerals, are absorbed through the small intestine. The smallest organ does all the work.

What layer is not part of intestinal wall?
C) Fybrotic

What is the name of the hollow, muscular structure that stores urine before being eliminated?
Urinary Bladder
What is the last structure that the urine travels through while being
eliminated from the body.
the urethra
Is it abnormal or normal to have blood in the urine.
Is it abnormal or normal to have protein in the urine.
Protein in your urine is abnormal and prompts follow-up testing.
When kidneys filter the blood, most of the water is taken out, then reabsorbed due to the action of which hormones?
Anti-diuretic hormone (or ADH)
Which one is right regarding normal amount of water in the human body?
The amount of water in the human body is about 70%
Urinary tract infections are much more common in men or female and why?
Urinary tract infections are usually caused when bacteria that normally live in our digestive system get into the bladder the nearness of the female urethral opening to the vagina and rectum
The usual site of implantation for the fertilized egg is the:
When the fertilized egg attaches itself to the uterine wall The egg is fertilized in the outer part of the fallopian tube. Implantation occurs in the upper third of the uterus. Implantation sometimes can cause bleeding or minor spotting.

vital capacity
The main function of the male testes is:
Primary function of the male reproductive system is reproduction
Exchange of gasses takes place within the lungs in the alveoli
Trachea plays a role in speech
Lined with ciliated mucosa beat continuously in the same direction of incoming air
Left bronchus is wider, shorter, and straighter than right
The smallest bronchioles branches have reinforcing cartilage
Pleural membrane line the thoracic cavity and lungs.
One of the esophagus function is to delivers chyme to the small intestine
Stomach is the body's major digestive organ.
Antidiuretic hormone (ADH) increases water loss in urine
The left kidney is slightly lower than the right.
The middle part of the male urethra that extends from the prostate gland to the penis is called the:
What is the name of the inner layer of the uterus?
The Storage site for immature sperm cells is called:
Function of milky colored fluid secreted from the prostate gland:

Functions of urinary system are:
The urinary system is a network of filters, tubes and containers that cleanse the body of excess salts, fluids, waste and electrolytes that enter the body through food and liquids.
Internal and external urethral sphincters
When either of these muscles contract, the urethra is sealed shut. The internal sphincter is a continuation of the detrusor muscle and is made of smooth muscle, therefore it is under involuntary or autonomic control. The external sphincter muscle of urethra in males is a secondary sphincter to control the flow of urine through the urethr, is made of skeletal muscle
Origins and functions of female and male organs; explain
Male and female have comparable organs to produce the reproductive cells and hormones they need for reproduction. In men, the externally located testicles produce the predominant male hormone testosterone and produce sperm cells. Women have internal gonads called ovaries, which produce the female hormones, estrogen and progesterone and the female gametes, eggs.
Internal and external respiration; explain
Internal Respiration includes all processes involved in exchanging O2 to CO2 between the body and the environment. Involves moving air in and out of the lungs (inhaling & exhaling respiratory Movements) Primary Function-meeting the respiratory demands of cells. External respiration refers to the exchange of gas (CO2 and O2) between the lungs (alviolo) and blood (pulminary capilaries)
