Pulmonary ventilation, which means the inflow and outflow of
air between the atmosphere and the living alveoli.
Diffusion of oxygen and carbon dioxide between alveoli and
Transport of the above (O2 and CO2) in the blood and the body
fluids to and from the cells, and Regulation of respiration.
Almost all life depends on chemical reaction with oxygen to
produce energy. Organisms receive oxygen from the atmospheric
air, which is 20.84% by volume. The air is drawn in through
the nasal cavities, and it enters the lung alveoli through
nasopharynx, larynx, trachea, bronchi, bronchioles. Oxygen is
carried to the different tissues in the form of oxyhemoglobin
of the red blood.
Under normal conditions about 5ml of oxygen is transported by
each 100ml of blood, and the normal cardiac output is about
5000ml per minute. Therefore the total quantity of oxygen
delivered to the tissues each minute is about 250ml.
There are about 75 trillion cells in the human body and the
quantity of oxygen available for their optimal activity seems
to be inadequate. Also, it is likely, that a number of cells,
particularly the brain cells, may not be within the reach of
the oxygen supply.
The organism within it contains a technique meant to augment
the oxygen supply to the tissues manifold. The human
intelligence consists in noticing this technique and then
employ it for the welfare of one\92s own organism.
This bio-technique is named as

part of the nasopharynx, just behind and above the uvula

air produces an audible sound. Uvula is a soft extension of
the soft palate that hangs from the roof of the mouth above
the root of the tongue. Its vibration produces sound.
