Respiratory structures include the nose, pharynx, larynx, trachea, bronchi, bronchioles and alveoli
Mechanics of Breathing
Respiratory Diseases Exhalation Inhalation Human Respiratory System Diagram : Human Respiratory System Diagram Human Digestive System : Human Digestive System Digestion is the breakdown of nutrients to a level that can be used by cells of the body.
GI tract (mouth, pharynx, esophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine)
Accessory (teeth, tongue, salivary glands, liver, gall bladder, pancreas)
