The respiratory system (also referred to as the ventilator system) is a complex biological system comprised of several organs that facilitate the inhalation and exhalation of oxygen and carbon dioxide in living organisms (or, in other words, breathing).

For all air-breathing vertebrates, respiration is handled by the lungs, but these are far from the only components of the respiratory system. In fact, the system is composed of the following biological structures: nose and nasal cavity, mouth, pharynx, larynx, trachea, bronchi and bronchioles, lungs and the muscles of respiration. (1)

A properly functioning respiratory system is a vital part of our good health. Respiratory infections can be acute and sometimes life threatening. They can also be chronic, in which case they place tremendous long term stress on the immune system, endocrine system, HPA axis , and much more.
