The function of the respiratory system is?

  • It includes the windpipe, the lungs and the nose. The respiratory system lets us breathe in oxygen through the nose, going down through the windpipe to the lungs, and then after it has travelled all around our body, comes up the windpipe into our nose as carbon dioxide as we breathe out.

  • Answer: Long story short, you need oxygen to live. Think fresh oxygen =good. When the body uses oxygen (O2), the waste of the cellularreactions is carbon dioxide (CO2). Think of this gas as bad. Whenyou breathe, think of it as in with the good gas (O2) and out withthe bad (CO2).
  • Answer: Respiratory system has oxygen. Cardiovascular system needs oxygen to work. Both has oxygen.
  • Answer: The respiratory system is there so you can breath air in and exhale out. When you breath in your breathing in air, but what your really breathing out when you exhale is carbon dioxide. So what your respiratory system does is it takes in clean air and disposes the carbon dioxide from your lungs.
  • Answer: The function or job of the Respiratory System is to provide oxygen to our blood. To simplify, it is alsocommonly known as breathing or to breathe.
  • Answer: to help you breathe and to have you organs up and working properly
  • Answer: Basically, the respiratory system is the system of the body thatgoverns the intake and outflow of oxygen and carbon dioxide in thebody. The breath enters the nasal cavity passes through the pharynxthen over the larynx the epiglottis (which covers the opening tothe larynx when food passes through the pharynx and keeps it fromentering the larynx or voice box). The air enters the bronchi whichsoon splits to right left and the air enters the bronchioles andtravels to the alveoli where there is a gas exchange.

  • Answer: To react glucose with oxygen to create energy and to filter the waste from that reaction to both the bladder and lungs where they are excreted before they can do damage the body.

    The respiratory system is not to be confused with plain, old fashioned, breathing. Breathing is one part of the respiratory system.
    Well, there are more than two functions:
    1. Respiratory function
    2. Blood filtration
    3. Control of some specific Biological Active Substances
    4. Maintaines acid-base equilibrium and electrolitical
    5. Participates in coagulation / fibrinolisis
    6. Synthesis of some proteines, lipids etc.

  • Answer: Human respiration, as a person takes a breath in the air rushes into the lungs causing the alveoli to expand. The alveoli are like little balloons with air on the inside and tinny blood vessels, called capillaries, surrounding the outside. The lungs expand as the alveoli fill up with air. The concentration of oxygen in the air of the alveoli is higher than the concentration of oxygen in the blood inside the capillaries, which results in oxygen diffusing from the alveoli into the capillaries.
    At the same time the carbon dioxide level in the capillaries is high and low in the lungs. So carbon dioxide also diffuses, but in the opposite direction! (carbon dioxide leaves the capillaries and goes into the alveoli)
    When a person exhales the lungs decrease in size as the air rushes out.
    Quick over view, breathe in:
    Oxygen from the alveoli diffuses (enters) into the capillaries
    Carbon dioxide from the capillaries diffuses (enters) into the alveoli to be exhaled out.
    (note: water vapor is also exhaled out with the carbon dioxide, that is what you see on a cold winter day when you exhale)

    or CO2 (carbon dioxide) + H2O (water) vapor out
    O2 (oxygen) in
  • Answer: The lungs, airways, diaphragm, windpipe, throat, mouth and nasal passages are all part of the respiratory system. Respiration is the process of breathing in and out through this system. Oxygen is taken into the body through the airways absorbed into the lungs, then transported through the body in the blood or bloodstream. The lungs also give out carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.
