Breathing structures and functions
Breathing occurs in every living creature.
1 of 9
Trachea
A tube leading from the throat to the lungs and is made out of sturdy C-shaped rings of cartilage to stop it from collapsing. It is lined with ciliated cells to trap dirt and microbes.
2 of 9
Bronchus (singular)/Bronchi (plural)
2 tubes leading from trachea into each lung.
3 of 9
Bronchioles
Leads from bronchus and are tiny branches.
4 of 9
Alveoli
Tiny air sacks that leads from bronchioles. A site of gas exchange, oxygen from lungs and into blood and carbon dioxide from blood into lungs.
5 of 9
Lung disease
Bronchitics, emphysema and asthma
6 of 9
Bronchitis
