The Excretory System! Crossword

Type
Crossword
Description

The main function of the______________ is to get rid of bodily waste. It is one of the most important systems in the body because the waste it gets rid of is poisonous, and if they build up in your body for too long they can kill you. The lungs, which are part of the system, remove carbon dioxide and water vapors. Uric acids, some salts, and nitrogenous waste is removed from the body by the kidneys and sweat glands. Excretory System
____________________ is a congenital disorder in which the two kidneys of the patient fuse together to form a horseshoe shape while the child was Horseshoe kidney
____________ is a two bean-shaped organs found on the left and right sides of the body in vertebrates. They filter the blood in order to make urine, to release and retain water, and to remove waste (The excretory system). They also control the ion concentrations and acid-base balance of the blood. Kidneys
The soft outer covering of vertebrates. Other animal coverings, such as the arthro pod exoskeleton have different developmental origin, structure and chemical composition is the _______ skin
______ is a tube made of smooth muscle fibers that propel urine from the kidneys to the urinary bladder. ureter
the ________ is the primary organs of respiration in humans. In mammals and most other vertebrates, two ______________are located near the backbone on either side of the heart. Lungs
The ______________ is a hollow muscular organ that collects urine from the kidneys before disposal by urination. Urinary Bladder
The ________ is the vital organ of vertebrates and some other animals.[2] In the human, it is located in the upper right quadrant of the abdomen, below the diaphragm. The liver has a wide range of functions, including detoxification of various metabolites, protein synthesis, and the production of biochemicals necessary for digestion.[ Liver
___________ is inflammation of the urethra urethritis
The _______ is a tube that connects the urinary bladder to the urinary meatus for the removal of fluids from the body. urethra
The _________ Is the basic structural and functional unit of the kidney.[1] Its chief function is to regulate the concentration of water and soluble substances like sodium salts by filtering the blood, reabsorbing what is needed and excreting the rest as urine. Nephron
The ___________________ is a medical condition of impaired kidney function in which the kidneys fail to adequately filter metabolic wastes from the blood.[1] The two main forms are acute kidney injury, which is often reversible with adequate treatment, and chronic kidney disease, which is often not reversible. Renal Failure
_____________ also known as urolithiasis, is when a solid piece of material (kidney stone) occurs in the urinary tract.[2] Kidney stones typically form in the kidney and leave the body in the urine stream. A small stone may pass without causing symptoms.[2] If a stone grows to more than 5 millimeters (0.2 in) it can cause blockage of the ureter resulting in severe pain in the lower back or abdomen.[ Kidney Stones
_______________ is an infection that affects part of the urinary tract.[1] When it affects the lower urinary tract it is known as a bladder infection (cystitis) and when it affects the upper urinary tract it is known as kidney infection Urinary tract Infection

Its secretion is stimulated by angiotensin II. aldosterone
acts in the kidneys to increase the retention of water when body fluid osmolality increases, e.g. with excessive sweat loss when fluid is not adequately replaced. antidiuretic hormone
