Respiratory System Functions Responsible for getting oxygen in to the body and removing carbon dioxide from the body.
Nostrils/Mouth Openings that allow air to enter the body
Trachiea Windpipe
Larynx voice box or Adam's apple
Bronchi tube that branches and enters each lung.
Bronchioles smaller tubes than branch from bronchi
Lungs spongy tissue where Oxygen and carbon dioxide exchange
Diaphragm dome shaped muscle that aids in breathing
Epiglottis small flap of tissue that closes off respiratory system when eating and closes off digestive system when talking or breathing
Alveoli small sacs at the end of the bronchioles where gas is exchanged.
Breathing is the process of moving air into and out of the lungs.
