1) you mean in and out of lungs or from alveoli into blood?

3) how do you breath when you're scared? Excited? Etc.

Cis or trans? That's what matters.

The human respiratory system is a series of organs responsible for taking in oxygen & expelling carbon dioxide. The primary organs of the respiratory system are lungs, which carry out this exchange of gases as we breathe. The cells of the human body require a constant stream of oxygen to stay alive. The respiratory system provides oxygen to the body’s cells while removing carbon dioxide, a waste product that can be lethal if allowed to accumulate. There are 3 major parts of the respiratory system: the airway, the lungs, & the muscles of respiration. The airway, which includes the nose, mouth, pharynx, larynx, trachea, bronchi, and bronchioles, carries air between the lungs & the body’s exterior.
