Molecules of oxygen and carbon dioxide are exchanged by diffusion into the alveoli of the lungs to the pulmonary capillaries. Oxygenated blood circulates to the heart that pumps it to the systemic arteries that irrigate cells.


CPR is the contraction for cardiopulmonary resuscitation. When someone’s breathing or heartbeat has stopped, CPR is done to keep the heart and the brain oxygenated until an ambulance arrives. The CPR includes two techniques: the rescue breathing and the chest compressions. It is also a really easy way to save someone’s life.
