the system of interconnected passages, organs and cells that allow people to breathe. It permits oxygen to come into the body, and carbon dioxide to be removed. The main organs involved are the nose, pharynx, larynx, trachea, bronchi and lungs. It is also known as the respiratory tract.
The organ system responsible for the intake of oxygen and diffusion of that gas into the blood and the elimination of carbon dioxide from the body. Important structures of the system are the pharynx, larynx, trachea, bronchi, bronchioles, and lungs. Alveoli in the lungs are the location of gas exchange with the blood. The movement of the muscular diaphragm allows the lungs to inhale and exhale.
delivers air to the lungs.
The respiratory system (including the lungs) is responsible for carrying oxygen from the air to the bloodstream and for expelling the waste product carbon dioxide.
The tubular and cavernous organs and structures, by means of which pulmonary ventilation and gas exchange between ambient air and the blood are brought about.
the body system whose function is to transport oxygen to the cells and to remove carbon dioxide; the system includes nose, mouth, bronchial tubes, and lungs
The body system for breathing. Includes the nose, windpipe (trachea), airways and lungs.
Referring to the mouth and nose, trachea, lungs and diaphragm.

the system for taking in oxygen and giving off carbon dioxide; in terrestrial animals this is accomplished by breathing
a motorized machine that sends a mist of asthma medicine into the lungs and helps you breathe
Consists of (in descending order) - the nose, mouth, nasal passages, nasal pharynx, pharynx, larynx, trachea, bronchi, bronchioles, air sacs (alveoli) of the lungs, and muscles of respiration.
The breathing system. Includes lungs, air passages, larynx, mouth, nose, and the associated nerves and blood vessels.
MSM assists healthy lung function by supporting the cell membranes involved in oxygen and carbon dioxide exchange.
The part of the body that includes the organs through which air passes during breathing. Also includes the structures which support these organs.
Generally refers to the nose, nasal passages and lungs.
The organs that are involved in breathing. These include the nose, throat, larynx, trachea, bronchi, and lungs.
The organs that carry out the process of respiration.
Organ system responsible for gas exchange from nostrils to lungs.
the group of organs responsible for carrying oxygen from the air to the bloodstream, and for expelling carbon dioxide.
The group of body organs that carries on the body function of respiration; the system brings oxygen into the body and eliminates carbon dioxide
One of eleven major body organ systems in animals; moves oxygen from the external environment into the internal environment and removes carbon dioxide from the body. PICTURE
A body's system for breathing, including the nose, throat, and lungs.
System that brings oxygen into the lungs and expels carbon dioxide. Organs include the nose, pharynx, larynx, trachea, bronchial tubes, and lungs.
The breathing system that includes the lungs and the air passages (trachea or "windpipe," larynx, mouth, and nose) to the air outside the body, plus the associated nervous and circulatory supply.
entire system of organs and tissues involved in breathing; these include the nose, throat, larynx trachea, bronchi and lungs.
A system of organs subserving the function of respiration and in air-breathing vertebrates consisting typically of the lungs and their nervous and circulatory supply and the channels by which these are continuous with the outer air.
Organs that intake, carry, and use oxygen and exhale carbon dioxide.
the combination of organs and tissues associated with breathing.
The parts of the body used to exchange air in and out of the body; includes the nose, sinuses, trachea, and lungs.
Among four-legged animals, the respiratory system generally includes tubes, such as the bronchi, used to carry air to the lungs, where gas exchange takes place. A diaphragm pulls air in and pushes it out. Respiratory systems of various types are found in a wide variety of organisms.
