The digestive system is responsible for breaking down food and other substances before absorbing the nutrients contained within. This image pack takes you on a complete tour of the alimentary canal from esophagus to rectum.
No, it’s not just that nasty thing your mom made you eat before you could have dessert. The liver is actually a very important organ that not only filters the blood from the digestive system, but is also in charge of metabolizing the drugs and chemicals we put into our body. That’s why overdoing it with some drugs and substances (alcohol, ibuprofen, iron, etc.) can overwhelm the liver and cause problems.
Breathe in, breathe out. Our body requires oxygen to do what it does and the natural way to absorb it is through the lungs.
This pack bundles the liver, pancreas, spleen and gallbladder into one, allowing learners to examine their interactions, guided by the prompts and explanations of the instructional designer.
The pancreas sends digestive enzymes to the small intestine to further break down food that has moved on from the stomach. It also produces insulin, a hormone responsible for regulating blood sugar.
Spleen and Gallbladder
The spleen and gallbladder both play their own supportive roles to assist in their respective organ systems. The spleen recycles red blood cells as well as acting as home base for white blood cells and platelets. The gallbladder stores the bile created by the liver and secretes it when you eat fatty substances to aid digestion.
The urinary system and the elimination of waste in general may seem like a constant hassle that gets in the way of our daily activities, but it plays a vital function. We constantly eat and drink, and that’s because the stuff we put in our body can’t be used by the body forever. Once chemicals and nutrients have been broken down and spent by the body until they are no longer of use, the kidneys collect these substances and produce urine, removing the unusable stuff from the body.
