What do our Lungs do? Our lungs do a vital job. Each day, we take about 23,000 breaths, which bring almost 10,000 quarts of air into our lungs. The air that we breath in contains several gases, including oxygen, that our cells need to function. With each breath, our lungs add fresh oxygen to your blood, which then carries it to our cells. The main function of our lungs is respiration.
Major function of Intestines: The small and large intestines perform different functions. The small intestine is where the most extensive part of digestion occurs. Most food products are absorbed in the small intestine. The large intestine is responsible for absorption of water and excretion of solid waste material. Food and waste material are moved along the length of the intestine by rhythmic contractions of intestinal muscles; these contractions are called peristaltic movements. Waste is solid because most of the water has been removed by the intestines as it travels through them.
What is the stomach? The stomach is an organ of digestion. It has a saclike shape and is located between the esophagus and the intestines. The human stomach is a muscular, elastic, pear-shaped bag, lying crosswise in the abdominal cavity beneath the diaphragm. It changes size and shape according to is position of the body and the amount of food inside. The stomach is about 12 inches (30.5 cm) long and is 6 inches. (15.2 cm) wide at its widest point. The stomach's capacity is about 1 qt (0.94 liters) in an adult.
Food enters the stomach from the esophagus. The connection between the stomach and the esophagus is called the cardiac sphincter. The cardiac sphincter prevents food from passing back to the esophagus. Heart burn is the sensation when stomach juices (gastric juice) is allowed to seep through the sphincter into the esophagus. Once the food enters the stomach, gastric juices are used to break down the food. Some substances are absorbed muscle lining of the stomach. One of the substances the stomach absorbs is alcohol.
The other end of the stomach empties into the duodenum. The duodenum is the first section of the small intestine. The pyloric sphincter separates the stomach from the duodenum.
What is the Spleen? The human spleen is an organ that creates lymphocytes for the destruction and recycling of old red-blood cells. The spleen is also a blood reservoir. It supplies the body with blood in emergencies such as a bad cut. The spleen is also the location where white blood cells trap organisms.
The spleen is shaped like a loose fist and is tucked under the left side of the diaphragm.
The average weight of an adult spleen is 0.44 lbs. During and after digestion, the size of the spleen increases. Infection of malaria or mono can also cause the spleen to increase in size.
If the increase in size is significant, the spleen can rupture. If the spleen ruptures, immediate medical care is necessary. You may need emergency surgery to control the bleeding.
Major Functions of Urinary Bladder: The urinary bladder is the organ that collects urine excreted by the kidneys before disposal by urination. Nerves in the urinary bladder tell you when it is time to urinate (empty your bladder). As the urinary bladder first fills with urine, you may notice a feeling that you need to urinate. The sensation to urinate becomes stronger as the urinary bladder continues to fill and reaches its limit. At that point, nerves from the urinary bladder send a message to the brain that the urinary bladder is full, and your urge to empty your urinary bladder intensifies.
When you urinate, the brain signals the urinary bladder muscles to tighten, squeezing urine out of the urinary bladder.
Major Functions of Kidney: Kidneys have a couple of different functions. The main purpose of the kidney is to separate urea, mineral salts, toxins, and other waste products from the blood. The kidneys also conserve water, salts and electrolytes. At least one kidney must function properly for life to be maintained.
Major Functions of Gall Bladder: The function of the gallbladder is to store bile and concentrate. Bile is a digestive liquid continually secreted by the liver. The bile emulsifies fats and neutralizes acids in partly digested food. A muscular valve in the common bile duct opens and the bile flows from the gallbladder into the cystic duct, along the common bile duct, and into the duodenum (part of the small intestine).
Some of the functions of our Liver are: to produce substances that break down fats, convert glucose to glycogen, produce urea (the main substance of urine), make certain amino acids (the building blocks of proteins), filter harmful substances from the blood (such as alcohol), storage of vitamins and minerals (vitamins A, D, K and B12) and maintain a proper level or glucose in the blood. The liver is also responsible for producing cholesterol. It produces about 80% of the cholesterol in our body.
