Real World Science: Respiratory and Circulatory Systems

You take approximately 20,000 breaths a day. Your heart beats 100,000 times every day. The Respiratory and Circulatory Systems explores the complex body systems relative to these vital processes. Using colorful visuals and lively, step-by-step narration, the program reveals how the respiratory and circulatory systems work both independently and together to keep us alive. Beginning with the respiratory system, students learn about the complex physical apparatus involved in the process of breathing, and trace the passage of oxygen from our major air-intake passageway, the nose, to the smallest dead-end spaces of the lungs, called alveoli. Here, where a vital exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide occurs, the respiratory and circulatory systems meet, and students next explore the intricacy and function of the cardiovascular system. As the program concludes, students examine the vital link between the respiratory and circulatory systems, and understand the importance of maintaining these indispensable systems through exercise and a healthy diet.
