Respiratory System Have a nice breath!
????????? What do you think is/are the functions of the lungs?
Functions of the lungs 1. Ventilation-BREATHING: Moving air in and out of the lungs 2.Gas Exchange-Occurs between the air and blood in the lungs AND the blood and other tissues in the body 3.Oxygen utilization-Oxygen used by the tissue in the lungs causes reactions of cells (distribution) during respiration
Two Types of Respiration Describe each: 1.Internal Respiration- 2.External Respiration- Ventilation and exchange of gases between air and between air and blood Gas exchange between the blood and other tissues and oxygen utilization
