What Is the Respiratory System?
The respiratory system is what suppliesthe constant amount of oxygen we need to survive. This system gets riid of waste and carbon dioxide, and enables us to speak and do things like blowing up ballons and playing wind instruments. The main organ(s) in the respiratory system are the lungs. These and the other organs are involved in the process of breathing: inhaling, exhaling. The other semi-main organs are the diaphragm, rib cage, chest muscles.
How Does the System Work?
Air passes into the top of the throat after entering the body through your nose or mouth when you inhale. After that, air goes to the trachea (also known as the windpipe), which is a tube that seperates into two tubes called bronchi. This leads into the lungs, where oxygen is collected and releases carbon dioxide. And then........WE START ALL OVER AGAIN!!!!!!
Conclusion....What You Should Have Learned
So, in conclusion, the respiratory system is the process of inhaling and exhaling, where air passes through your mouth or nose, goes through your windpipe, and comes down to your lungs. The oxygen then goes through your circulatory system to your blood, and out comes carbon dioxide. YAY!!!!
