Every part important: but consider this. The lungs are how we get oxygen into our body. The trachea is the tube to let air flow into the lungs. WIthout oxygen people will suffer brain damage or death after about 3 minutes. So I would say that the respiratory system is pretty important to the functioning of the human body.
