The Respiratory System is a unique and important part of the human body.
What is the Respiratory System?
The respiratory system is the system within the human body that provides gass exchange for oxygen (comming into the body) and carbod dioxide (leaving the body).
What is the Anatomy and Phsyiology of the Respiratory System?
The Respiratory System involves all the pipes and conducting airways from the mouth through to the lungs, including: mouth, larynx, trachea, right and left main bronchus (sides of the lungs), bronchioles (little branches of the lungs), alvioli (little sacs in which gasseous exchange takes place). After the respiratory system gets the oxygen to the alivioli, and gasseous exchange takes place, the circulatory system then removes CO2 from cells throughout the whole body, while O2 is delivered to all cells within the body.
