Oxygen Inhalation Process via the Respiratory System
Do you know how the inhalation process done via respiratory system?
The respiratory system is the critical system that controls the breathing and helps perform the task of gas exchange. Following the above infographic, you may easily understand how the process of inhalation is done through the respiratory system. The air enters via the mouth or nose and travels down through the pharynx and larynx.
