The Effects of Aging on Respiratory System
Student’s Name
Professor’s Name
Course Title




This paper entails a discussion of the effect of aging on the respiratory system. It gives
an analysis of the major respiratory parts that are the lungs, respiratory muscles as well as the
airway. The respiratory system mechanics is first discussed as a whole. It is followed by a further
narration of each respiratory part and how its functionality is affected by changes in age. This
gives a clear picture of how each part of the whole system is affected by aging.
This helps build a case for the effect of aging on the respiratory system. However, the
paper also discusses the challenge of drawing a decisive conclusion that age has an effect on the
respiratory system. It cautions against considering age as the only variable that would determine
respiratory failure or otherwise. There exists a close relationship with these other variables that
would be confused and give misleading data. For example, an individual who suffers from
chronic infections in their respiratory system could be behind the failure in the system and the
fact that the individual is aging.
Finally, the paper gives a summary of the discussions contained herein and draws a
conclusion on the argument that there exists a relationship between the decreasing efficiency of
the respiratory system and the aging of an individual. A recommendation for a need of further
research in the field is made.



The US like any other country in the world has had\a tremendous growth in the
number of aged people. It has been forecasted that the figure is expected to grow by over 135%
between the years 2000 to 2050. This group of the elderly is more likely to be in need of health
care and other care services. It has been demonstrated that most of the growth and development
of the respiratory system in human beings is completed by the age of 18 to 20 years. The
pulmonary function will reach its maximum in the same period and afterward begin to decline in
the efficiency. In this case, the paper will entirely focus on the alterations that happen in the
respiratory system in the lifetime of a human being.
The respiratory system mechanics
The respiratory system has three major parts namely; the airway, the lungs, and the
respiratory muscles. The basic function of the respiratory system is to ensure that air is
transported to the lungs in order to facilitate oxygen to be diffused into the blood while carbon
dioxide is exhaled as waste.
This system comprises of mainly the lungs, diaphragm and thoracic cage. The force and
the rate of both inspiration and expiration are determ...
