Functions of respiratory systemEdit
1. Gas Exchange
2. Pulmonary Defense
3. Supplying blood with oxeygen
4. Blood Filteration
This is the main and primary function of respiratory system. The oxygen is inhaled inside our body and the carbon dioxide, as a waste is exhaled outside the body. In addition to this, gas is moved from high pressure areas to low pressure ones.
This process involves a wide array of filteration which prevents harmful objects to enter in our body. The various innate immune processes are involved here. This defense protects both itself and body. It prevents the harmful substances from the air to enter inside our body.
Supplying blood with oxygenEdit
The oxygen is inhaled through respiration and is supplied to the blood. The oxygen goes into lungs and is absorbed by some tissues which supply it to the blood. This process is continued 24 hours daily.
Blood filteration is also a process involved by respiration
