The Respitory System
By: Jefferson, Connor, and Aston
How does it work?
The nose takes in oxygen when you inhale, which travels through the larynx and trachea, which goes into the aveoli in the lungs. The aveoli is surrounded by capillaries and when the oxygen reaches the edge on the aveoli, the oxygen transfers to the capillaries. Carbon dioxide in the blood cells in the capillaries goes into the aveoli. It then goes back up the trachea and larynx and out the nose, which is exhaling.
Some of the main organs in the respiration system are...
The nose inhales cold, dry air outside and turns it into moist and warm air to the larynx
The Trachea moves air from the larynx to the lung
The lungs holds aveoli (small air sacs) and receives and delivers blood to the heart.
