of the air.
Parts of Respiratory System
• Trachea
-large tube travelling down the neck
• Bronchi
-Two tubes that branch off the trachea
• Bronchioles
-Many tubes that branch off the bronchi
-Small sacs at the end of the bronchioles
-Each sac surrounded by blood vessels
-The place where O2 and CO2 is exchanged
Breathing In
• Inhalation = Diaphragm in stomach pulls
lungs down
Diaphragm  circular muscle at base of chest
helps open and close lungs
• Alveoli fill up with air and take oxygen
• Oxygen passes through tiny holes of
alveoli into blood vessels

• Blood cells send carbon dioxide out into
• Muscles in chest pull lungs in and pushes
breath out.
