Breathing Quizzes & Trivia

Breathing is the process by which air moves in and out of the lungs. The movement of oxygen through other breathing organs such as gill is also referred to as breathing. Breathing is also called ventilation for organisms with lungs. It is one part of physiological respiration which is necessary to sustain life.

Mammals, reptiles and bird, all require oxygen to release energy through respiration in their cells in the form of the metabolism of molecules such as glucose. Breathing is one of the processes that deliver oxygen to places where it is required in the body. Can you name another process that aids in movement of oxygen in the body? Why does a person continue to breathe even when he is asleep? Find out more such questions and their answers with our quizzes.
