MECHANICS OF RESPIRATION Respiration is the process of supplying oxygen to and removing carbon dioxide from the tissues. These gasses are carried in the blood, oxygen from the lungs to the tissues and carbon dioxide from the tissues to the lungs. The gas exchanges in the lungs are called external respiration and those in the tissues are called internal respiration. There is a very delicate balance between the absorption and excretion of oxygen and carbon dioxide in the lungs and tissues, and this balance is maintained by the respiratory or breathing activity.
