Respiratory System Crossword Puzzle

Type
Crossword
Description

the cavity behind the nose and above the roof of the mouth that filters air and moves mucus and inhaled contaminants outward and away from the lungs. Nasal Cavity
voice box-passageway for air moving from pharynx to trachea; contains vocal cords. Larynx
one of the tubules forming the respiratory system. Trachea
The passages that branch from the trachea and direct air into the lungs. Bronchi
the paired organs in the thoracic cavity where gas exchange takes place between air in the alveoli and blood in the pulmonary capillaries. Lungs
progressively smaller tubular branches of the airways. Bronchioles
tiny sacs of lung tissue specialized for the movement of gases between air and blood. Alveoli
short structures projecting from a cell and containing bundles of microtubules that move a cell through its surroundings or move fluid over the cell's surface. Cilia
protective secretion of the mucus membranes. Mucus
passing or able to pass air in and out of the lungs normally. Breathing
the metabolic processes certain organisms obtaining energy from organic molecules. Respiration
the exchange of gases between the air in the alveoli and the blood in the pulmonary capillaries. external respiration
the uppermost cartilage of the larynx; covers the larynx during swallowing epiglottis
inhalation; the intake of air into the lungs inspiration
any of the fine branching blood vessels that form a network between the arterioles and venules. Capillaires

Description

the entire process of gas exchange between the atmosphere and the cells respiration
a hollow space behind the nose nasal cavity
bones that curl out from lateral walls of the nasal cavity on each side, dividing the cavity into passageways nasal conchae
air-filled spaces located within the maxillary, frontal, ethmoid, and sphenoid bones of the skull and open into the nasal cavity paranasal sinuses
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 pharynx
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 larynx
the opening between the vocal cords glottis
usually stands upright and allows air to enter the larynx; helps protect from food and liquids to enter the air passages epiglottis
windpipe trachea
consists of branched airways leading from the trachea to the microscopic air sacs in the lungs bronchial tree
arise from the trachea at the level of the fifth thoracic vertebra primary bronchi
smaller tubes that continue to divide giving rise to others bronchioles
very thin tubes, lead to the alveolar sacs alveolar ducts
leads to smaller microscopic air sacs called alveoli alveolar sacs
smaller microscopic air sacs alveoli
soft, spongy, cone-shaped organs in the thoracic cavity lungs
a layer of serous membrane visceral pleura
folded back visceral pleura attached to each surface of the lung parietal pleura
the potential space between the visceral and parietal pleurae pleura cavity
the actions providing air movements, inhalation inspiration
exhalation expiration
synthesize a mixture of lipids and proteins surfactant
iron containing protein hemoglobin
combination of oxygenated blood with the iron atoms of hemoglobin oxyhemoglobin
a deficiency of O2 reaching the tissues hypoxia
carbon dioxide bonds with hemoglobin carbaminohemoglobin
