BIO302: Human Anatomy

Unit 8: Respiratory System   When you breathe, the organs and tissues of your respiratory system are working together in one cooperative action known as the breathing mechanism.  Breathing enables you to capturing oxygen from the air that can then distributed throughout the body via the blood so that cellular respiration can take place.  In this unit, we will study the functional structures that constitute the respiratory system, including the nose, pharynx, larynx, trachea, bronchi, lungs, and pleurae.

Unit 8 Time Advisory
This unit should take you approximately 9 hours to complete.

☐    Subunit 8.1: 2 hours

☐    Subunit 8.2: 2 hours

☐    Subunit 8.3: 2 hours

☐    Subunit 8.4: 1.5 hours

☐    Subunit 8.5: 1.5 hours

Unit8 Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of this unit, the student will be able to:
- Describe the functions of the respiratory system and identify the organs. - Describe the anatomical structure of the nose, pharynx, larynx, trachea, bronchi, lungs, and pleurae in detail.
