Respiration is one of the most important functional systems in the human body. In healthy people, respiration takes place completely automatically, which often leads us to forget about our respiratory system. Knowing more about the characteristics and function of the individual respiratory organs helps promote an understanding of good habits for keeping the body healthy.
