    The primary system in the human body that allows us to breathe is the Respiratory System. It is divided into two sections; upper respiratory tract (nasal cavity, nostrils, pharynx, larynx, and trachea) and lower respiratory tract (lungs, bronchi, alveoli, and diaphragm). The two tracts work together to allow the absorption of oxygen and the exhale of carbon dioxide when we breathe, this is the primary function of the entire system. Each organ of the respiratory system plays a vital role in the

    INTERTWINING ROLES The respiratory system’s organs bring in oxygen by inhaling and remove carbon dioxide by exhaling. Oxygen travels through the trachea, pharynx, bronchi, bronchioles, and alveoli. At the alveoli gas exchange occurs in which oxygen diffuses into the bloodstream of the circulatory system, and carbon dioxide is removed from the bloodstream and exhaled. The close connection of these two body systems is important to note when analyzing the effects of smoking on each system separately. IRRITATION

    mouth and nose? Now, I know it is because of the respiratory system. The respiratory system is built up of the organs in our body that serve us to breathe. It offers the blood with oxygen in order for the blood to deliver oxygen to all parts of the physical structure. When we breathe, we inhale oxygen and exhale carbon dioxide. This exchange of gases is the respiratory system 's means of bringing oxygen to the blood (WebMD. Web). The respiratory system is included nasal cavity, mouth, trachea, bronchi

    The Respiratory system is responsible for the breathing process. The breathing process entails inhaling and exhaling air in the body, absorption of oxygen from the air to produce energy, and getting rid of the byproduct of the process which is the carbon dioxide. The respiratory system is divided into two tracts; the upper respiratory tract and the lower respiratory tract. The following organs are a part of the upper respiratory tract: nose, mouth, pharynx and the larynx. While the lower respiratory

    A&P II Instructor: David Armoogam September 10, 2010 The respiratory system helps with breathing, inhaling and exhaling. The respiratory systems main function is to give oxygen to the body’s cells and get rid of the carbon dioxide the cells produce. Breathing would be impossible without the respiratory system, which includes the nose, throat, voice box, windpipe, and lungs. In this essay I plan on explaining how the respiratory system functions as well as its parts. The exchange of two gases called

    respiratory system, the system in living organisms that takes up oxygen and discharges carbon dioxide in order to satisfy energy requirements. In the living organism, energy is liberated, along with carbon dioxide, through the oxidation of molecules containing carbon. The termrespiration denotes the exchange of the respiratory gases (oxygen and carbon dioxide) between the organism and the medium in which it lives and between the cells of the body and the tissue fluid that bathes them. With the

    The respiratory system is a complex organ structure of the human body anatomy, and the primary purpose of this system is to supply the blood with oxygen in order for the blood vessels to carry the precious gaseous element to all parts of the body to accomplish cell respiration. The respiratory system completes this important function of breathing throughout inspiration. In the breathing process inhaling oxygen is essential for cells to metabolize nutrients and carry out some other tasks, but it must

    According to Melinda (2014), the function of respiratory system is to supply oxygen into the body, by breathing in, and to remove carbon dioxide which is the waste, from the body, by breathing out. Franklin (2014), outlines that oxygen is most needed in the body, in order to live. This is because every cell in the body needs oxygen, in order to function properly. Also, oxygen is required in the blood in order to covert food into energy. Beside, Melinda (2014), clarifies that these movements are

    Functions of the Respiratory System Introduction The main purpose of the respiratory system is to exchange oxygen and carbon monoxide between the body and the environment. Throughout the body are specific organs and structures that make the respiratory system possible. In humans, respiration takes place in the lungs. In the article by Kim Ann Zimmermann, "Respiratory System: Facts, Function, and Diseases" she explains how the series of organs in a person 's body work together to exchange the

    how our body inhales oxygen and exhales carbon dioxide. This is possible because of the respiratory system. This system in the body is what allows us to breathe and continue our lives. An average human breathes fifty million times in their lifetime! The structure affects the function of this intricate and wonderful system that keep us alive. It all starts from the nose. The basic parts of the respiratory system are the lungs, nose, trachea, diaphragm and alveoli. When we inhale, the diaphragm, which
