How does our respiratory system help our body function?

Oxygen and CO2: Oxygen is needed for your cells to live, and when they burn calories using oxygen they generate co2. Too much co2 is toxic to the brain and it must be removed from the blood. The lungs exhale co2 (like a car's exhaust pipe), and take in oxygen with each breath, lungs transfer oxygen to red blood cells that transport it to your cells. ...Read more

Beautifully: Your body uses oxygen for fuel and produces carbon dioxide as waste. These gases circulate in the blood, which is pumped by the heart to the lungs (and the rest of the body). In the lungs, oxygen you breathe in enters the blood, while carbon dioxide leaves the blood and enters the air you breathe out. ...Read more

How does the respiratory system work together with the cardiovascular system?

How does the respiratory system work together with the cardiovascular system?

That's why heart rate goes up w/ exercise. The lungs gets their blood from the right ventricle, and this blood comes back to the left atrium where it is then ejected to the body by the left ventricle. ...Read more
