Respiratory System

By Kathryn, Jennifer, Karthik, Jared

What Is It?

In your body, oxygen allows your body make energy to function properly. Breathing is taking air to the lungs, this is the main part of the system. Every time you breath, your diaphragm expands and pushes air to the lungs. Then your lungs push out Carbon Dioxide, which is very harmful.

The average human can holds their breath for 1 minute!- The average Bottlenose whale can hold their breath for 2 HOURS!

If you hold your breath for to long, you will experience dizziness, headache, and eventually you would pass out and start breathing again.
