Respiratory System Function

The Respiratory System is an organ in the human body. The function of the Respiratory System is to transport air into the lungs and the diffusion of oxygen into the blood stream. It is also responsible to take in oxygen and expel carbon dioxide.

What will happen if you take a component out of the Respiratory system

One of the major components of the Respiratory system are the Lungs. The lungs play a big roll in our Respiratory system, the lungs allow oxygen in the air to be taken into the body and also releasing carbon dioxide while inhaling oxygen. If we take our lungs out of the system, we will die because then there will be no oxygen to reach our heart, which will then stop the heart from pumping blood through out our bodies.
