The Respitory System

By: Jefferson, Connor, and Aston

What does it do?

The respiratory system brings oxygen into the body and Carbon dioxide out. It works with the cardiovascular system by giving the oxygen poor blood from the heart oxygen and removing carbon dioxide.

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...
