Overview

Each title in the series The Human Body: How it Works investigates a different system or process of the human body, from organ systems to cells. Written by experts in human anatomy and accompanied by full-color illustrations, photos, charts, and diagrams, each title thoroughly examines the role of each system as part of the complex machine that is the human body.

Breathing is essential to human survival-it gives us the oxygen we need to live. Yet, the act of respiration is an involuntary process, something many people don't think about on a day-to-day basis. The Respiratory System explains how we get air into our lungs and how our bodies use that air, as well as the fundamental physical and biological principles underlying respiratory function. In addition, this essential title examines several respiratory diseases and how they affect the body.
