When we breath, we inhale oxygen and exhale carbon dioxide. This exchange of gases is the respiratory system’s method of getting oxygen to the blood. Air enters the body through the nose and mouth and travels down the trachea, through the bronchial tubes, and then into the lungs. Once in the lungs, the air is drawn into thin-walled sacs that are supplied with capillaries. The exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide in the blood takes place in these tiny sacs.

Lung disease are conditions that occur within the lungs. Common lung diseases include asthma, pneumonia, tuberculosis, and lung cancer.
