Gross Structure of the Respiratory System?

Answer

The gross structure of the respiratory system is responsible for breathing and getting oxygenated air to the blood and other organs. The upper respiratory tract functions are gas humidification, filtration, and the warming. Respiratory control is a complex, integrated phenomenon with voluntary and involuntary controls. The lung is responsible for many functions other than gas exchange that include: maintenance and defense, filtering, chemical processing, immune function, protein and connective tissue synthesis, surfactant synthesis, and Mucociliary clearance.
