Problem 8E

Explain why scuba divers should never hold their breath as they ascend to the surface.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Endocrine System: ● Intro: ○ Endocrine glands ​are ductless organs. ○ Exocrine glands = glands with ducts e.g. salivary glands ○ Heterocrine glands = have both exocrine and endocrine functions e.g. pancreas ○ Endocrine glands secrete their products (hormones) into the bloodstream. ○ All endocrine organs are closely related to blood vessels. ● Overview of Hormones: ○ Endocrine glands produce molecules called ​hormones. ○ Hormones can only affect cells ​(target cells)​ or organs ​(targ​ hatgans) t have receptors for a specific hormone. ○ Cells or organs that do not possess receptors for a specific hormone do not respond to that hormone. ● Hypothalamic Control of the Endocrine System: ○ The hypothalamus is the interface between the nervous system and the endocrine system. ○ It controls and oversees most endocrine functions. ○ It is located in the inferior region of the diencephalon just superior to the pituitary gland. ● Pituitary Gland ○ Also called the ​hypophysis ○ Located just inferior to the hypothalamus ○ Housed within the sella turcica of the sphenoid bone ○ Connected to the hypothalamus by a thin stalk called the ​infundibulum ○ Divided into ​anterior​​ osterior lobes ● Control of Anterior Pituitary Hormone Secretions ○ Hormones secreted from anterior pituitary gland are regulated by hormones
