Caption: Mechanics of respiration. Cutaway diagrams showing the mechanics of breathing in (left) and breathing out (right). Arrows show: the movement of air in and out of the nose, mouth and trachea; the expansion and contraction of the rib cage and the abdomen; and the contraction and relaxation of the diaphragm (the sheet of muscle between the chest and the abdomen).
