Respiratory Notes

Function

The main function of the respiratory system is to supply the blood with oxygen. We inhale oxygen and exhale carbon dioxide. Respiration happens when you breath in oxygen then the exchange of gases between the blood and tissues.

Organs

The main organs are the pharynx, nose, trachea, bronchi, epiglottis, larynx, and lungs. The passage of air goes through the nose, pharynx, trachea, bronchi. Then the air goes through the epiglottis and larynx the into the lungs. After that it is released as carbon dioxide.
