Thoracic Diaphragm Facts

in Science Facts by

Diaphragm is a dome shaped structure which has several large muscles which naturally separates any two adjacent parts in a human body or body of the mammals. The thoraco abdominal diaphragm is the commonly known muscle. Considering a human body, these muscles serve to part the cavity of the chest from that of the abdomen. The diaphragm top is located one and one and a half inches from the bottom of the sternum supports the heart, and diaphragm bottom is attached round the lower ribs connecting to the lower lumbar vertebrae. Being the chief part of the respiration process in humans, these muscles rest into dome shape during exhalation. It contracts when air is inhaled; it lets the chest cavity expand by a simultaneous contraction of the chest muscles. When air is deeply inhaled followed by the expansion of the belly while inhalation and retraction, while exhalation, the diaphragm moves further down into the abdomen, thereby making the lungs expand completely in the chest cavity. This suggests that more amount of oxygen is inhaled and carbon dioxide is exhaled. A quick breathing may cause hyperventilation due to the loss of required amount of carbon dioxide.

  1. to Z MAE, the person that commented before me. this picture is acurate. In the respiratory system it is viens that are oxygenated (red) and arterys that are deoxygenated (blue). The respiritory system is the only place where this happens. Arteries direct blood away from the heart while veins direct blood to the heart. deoxygenaed blood flows into the heart throught the vena cava. there the heart pumps it into the lungs through the pulmonary arteries. then it is oxygenated and pumped back to the heart through pulmonary veins. then pumped to your body through your arteries and returned back to the heart though your veins. so why dont u go elsewhere with your false information you ****.

  2. Look you **** how about you learn how to spell before you correct someone else. Also, how about you do more research and actually read and learn about the anatomy and physiology of the human body. It is the CIRCULATORY SYSTEM THAT DEOXYGENATED AND OXYGENATED BLOOD are conducted in. You just made yourself look like a dumbass Tyler Murrah.
