== Respiratory Physiology ==


=== Overview ===
The goals of respiration are to provide oxygen to the tissues and to remove carbondioxide , to achieve these goals , respiration can be divided into four major functional events , 
1. pulmonary ventilation , 
2, diffusion of oxygen and carbondioxide between the alveoli and the bloods.
3, transport of oxygen and carbon dioxide in the blood and body fluids to and from the cells  , 
4, regulation of ventilation and other facets of respiration .
