Respiratory System

Breathing

~The Function of the Respiratory System~

The function of the Respiratory System is to get the oxygen into your body and then the waste air out of your body.

Interdependence With Other Systems

The Respiratory System is interdependent with the nervous system, because the brain controls involuntary actions. The brain tells you to breathe. If there was no brain you would not be alive right now. The Respiratory System is also interdependent with the Circulatory System. The Circulatory System sends air and blood around the body.
