Some important points in ‘Breathing and Exchange of Gases’ are as follows-

  • The process of exchange of O2 from the atmosphere with CO2 produced by the cell is called breathing. It occurs in two stages of inspiration and expiration. 
  • During inspiration, air enters the lungs from atmosphere.
  • During expiration, air leaves the lungs.
  • Human respiratory system consists of a pair of nostrils, pharynx, larynx, bronchi and bronchioles.
  • Nasal chamber open into pharynx that leads to larynx. 
  • Larynx contains voice box ( or sound box) that help in the production of sound.
  • Each bronchiole terminates into alveoli which are an irregular walled, vascularized bag like structure.

  • Lymph transports certain substances like protein and fats. 
  • Blood is a fluid connective tissue composed of a fluid matrix, plasma and the blood corpuscles. 
  • Blood forms about 30-35% of the extracellular fluid and is slightly alkaline having pH 7.4.
  • Formed elements  are composed of erythrocytes, leucocytes and platelets.
  • WBC Neutrophils – most abundant 
  • WBC Basophils – least abundant 
  • Monocytes and neutrophils are phagocytic cells which destroy foreign organisms.
