Caption: Lungs and trachea, artwork. The lungs are where blood is oxygenated. Breathing brings air into the lungs through the trachea (windpipe) at upper centre. The voicebox (larynx, top centre) is also shown. In the chest, the trachea splits in the bronchi, one for each lung. In the lungs, the airways divide further into the bronchioles (white tubes), ending in tiny air sacs called alveoli (too small to be seen). It is in the alveoli that gas exchange takes place, with oxygen passing into the blood and carbon dioxide (a waste product of respiration) passing out of the blood into the lungs.
