The Circulatory and Respiratory Systems Crossword
Type
Crossword
Description

a set of organs that allows a person to breathe and exchange oxygen and carbon dioxide throughout the body.
Where the body inhales air
Tube that connects the larynx to the bronchi of the lungs.
Connects to the nostrils, allows air to move from the nose to the larynx (voice box) in the process of breathing.
The main passageway into the lungs
help oxygen from the air inhaled enter the red cells in the blood. The red blood cells carry the oxygen through the body.
An organ system that moves substances to and from cells. Helps stabilize body temperature and pH. Consists of a heart, blood vessels, and blood.
Muscular organ that pumps blood through the circulatory system by rhythmic contraction and dilation.
Carry blood away from the heart

The Respiratory System Crossword
Type
Crossword
Description

Set of organs in the rib cage with branching passages where air is inhaled and exhaled
Where air is drawn, moistened and filtered
When this organ moves down, air is drawn into the lungs
A flap of cartilage behind the root of the tongue, which is depressed during swallowing to cover the opening of the windpipe
Located at the back of the nose and mouth
Also known as the voice box
Reinforced by rings of cartilage, extending from the larynx to the bronchial tubes and taking air to and from the lungs
Where oxygen and carbon dioxide is diffused into the blood stream

Description

the entire process of gas exchange between the atmosphere and the cells
a hollow space behind the nose
bones that curl out from lateral walls of the nasal cavity on each side, dividing the cavity into passageways
air-filled spaces located within the maxillary, frontal, ethmoid, and sphenoid bones of the skull and open into the nasal cavity
or throat, is behind the oral cavity, the nasal cavity and the lyrynx; the passage way for food traveling from the oral cavity to the esophagus and for the air passing between the nasal cavity and the larynx
the enlargement in the airway at the top of the trachea and below the pharynx; it conducts air in and out id the trachea and prevents foreign objects from entering the trachea
the opening between the vocal cords
usually stands upright and allows air to enter the larynx; helps protect from food and liquids to enter the air passages
windpipe
consists of branched airways leading from the trachea to the microscopic air sacs in the lungs
arise from the trachea at the level of the fifth thoracic vertebra
smaller tubes that continue to divide giving rise to others
very thin tubes, lead to the alveolar sacs
leads to smaller microscopic air sacs called alveoli
smaller microscopic air sacs
soft, spongy, cone-shaped organs in the thoracic cavity
a layer of serous membrane
folded back visceral pleura attached to each surface of the lung
the potential space between the visceral and parietal pleurae
the actions providing air movements, inhalation
exhalation
synthesize a mixture of lipids and proteins
iron containing protein
combination of oxygenated blood with the iron atoms of hemoglobin
a deficiency of O2 reaching the tissues
carbon dioxide bonds with hemoglobin
