A&P: Body Systems

TermDefinition
Respiratory Lungs and the airways. This system performs respiration, the process that supplies the body with a constant supply of oxygen, which is vital for life.
Cardiovascular Heart and blood vessels, which pump and transport blood throughout the body. The blood carries oxygen and nutrients to the tissues and removes waste from the tissues through the cardiovascular system.
Skeletal Supports and protects the body and is the body's framework. It is made up of bones. Without the skeletal system, our bodies would be just a mass without shape.
Muscular Provides body movement. It consists of muscles and cartilage. Without muscles, we would not be able to move.
Nervous Brain, spinal cord, and peripheral nerves. The nervous system regulates most body activities and sends and receives messages from the sensory organs.
Endocrine Glands that secrete hormones for the regulation of many of the body's activities.
