We need the Respiratory system to breathe. The Respiratory system pumps oxygen to the body so we can stay alive and if we don't breathe our brains will shut down and we would die.

The Respiratory system works when air goes in the nose and mouth.Tiny hairs in the nose cleans the large particles in the air like dust. Mucus traps particles and keeps the cells in your nose moist. The air then moves to the trachea also known as the windpipe. The trachea branches into two bronchus tubes that go to the lungs. The bronchus tubes breaks into smaller and smaller tubes called bronchioles that branch into smaller air sacs called alveoli. In the alveoli the oxygen from the air is transferred to the blood. Then the carbon dioxide in the blood is removed.
Interesting facts!
