Breathing and gas exchange
1 The gas exchange system takes air into and out of the body to supply oxygen and remove carbon dioxide
2 The movement of air in and out of the lungs is brought about by the movements ribs and diaphragm. The air movement maintains a steep concentration gradient for the diffusion of oxygen and carbon dioxide between the blood and the air in the lungs.
3 The complete gas exchange includes the ribs, the intercostal muscles, the diaphragm, the trachea, the bronchi, the bronchioles, alveoli and pleural membrane of the thorax
4 Gas exchange takes place in the lungs and depend on efficient diffusion of the gases
