Oxygen Debt

- Anaerobic respiration occurs in oxygen debt

- Oxygen debt it repaid by deep breaths at the end of excersing

-The extra oxygen consumed during the recovery from a period.

Long term effects of excersing on the respiratory

- Increase lung capacity

- Increased vital capacity

- Increase tidal volume

- More aveoli becoming avaliable
