—The process by which oxygen is taken in and used by tissues in the body and carbon dioxide is released
The oxidative breakdown and release of energy from fuel molecules by reaction with oxygen in aerobic cells A series of chemical oxidation reactions within the cell controlled and catalysed by enzymes in which carbohydrate and fats are broken down, releasing energy to be used by the cell or organism in its various functions
Relief from toil or suffering: rest
The process by which animals and plants metabolise organic substances, breaking them down into simpler components which produce energy In most plants and animals the process of respiration requires oxygen, and carbon dioxide and heat production are the end products The exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide between the body and the environment is termed external respiration In most animals this takes place at special organs such as gills or lungs and is assisted by respiratory movements (e g breathing) Respiration at a cellular level is called Internal (or tissue) respiration This occurs in two stages, 1 Glucose is broken down into pyruvate (called glycolysis) and 2 Pyruvate is broken down into carbon dioxide and water (the Krebs cycle) the former of these is anaerobic and does not require oxygen, whereas the latter is aerobic and requires oxygen, producing carbon dioxide as a waste product The second stage (Krebs) is the main energy yielding process
Breathing; the exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide between the atmosphere and the body's cells
the process in which an organism uses oxygen for its life processes and gives off carbon dioxide
gas exchange from air to the blood and from the blood to the body cells
the bodily process of inhalation and exhalation; the process of taking in oxygen from inhaled air and releasing carbon dioxide by exhalation
the process by which organisms obtain energy when sugars combine with oxygen Carbon dioxide and water are given off as by-products during this process
The process by which aquatic organisms convert organic material to energy It is the reverse reaction of photosynthesis Respiration consumes oxygen (02) and releases carbon dioxide (CO2) It also takes place as organic matter decays
The exchange of gases between a living organism and its environment; the act of breathing
Interval; intermission
The interchange of gases of living organisms and the gases of the medium in which they live
The physical and chemical processes by which an organism supplies its cells and tissues with the oxygen needed for metabolism and relieves them of the carbon dioxide formed in energy producing reactions
the process of breathing which includes the exchange of gases in the blood (oxygen and carbon dioxide) See inhalation and exhalation
The process by which chemical energy of organic molecules is released Involves the consumption of oxygen and the liberation of carbon dioxide and water
Process by which the cells of organisms use oxygen to break down carbohydrates and other nutrients to release energy and produce carbon dioxide and water as byproducts
The act of respiring or breathing again, or catching one's breath
the metabolic processes whereby certain organisms obtain energy from organic moelcules; processes that take place in the cells and tissues during which energy is released and carbon dioxide is produced and absorbed by the blood to be transported to the lungs
{i} act of breathing; making breathe, ventilating
The act of resping or breathing; the act of taking in and giving out air; the aggregate of those processes bu which oxygen is introduced into the system, and carbon dioxide, or carbonic acid, removed
A biochemical process by which living organisms take up oxygen from the environment and consume organic matter, releasing both carbon dioxide and heat In plants, the organic matter in photosynthate produced during daylight hours (Source: Carbon Dioxide Information Analysis Center, 1990)
the exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide between the atmosphere and the cells of the body
oxidation of food in living cells, with the resulting release of energy; part of the energy is transferred to other compounds and some is used in the activation of certain cell processes (Meyer et al 1973)
Your respiration is your breathing. His respiration grew fainter throughout the day. see also artificial respiration. the process of breathing artificial respiration (respiratio, from respirare , from spirare ). Process of taking in air for oxygen and releasing it to dispose of carbon dioxide. The amount of air inhaled and exhaled in an average human breath (tidal volume) is about one-eighth the amount that can be inhaled after exhaling as much as possible (vital capacity). Nerve centres in the brain regulate the movements of muscles of respiration (diaphragm and chest wall muscles). Blood in the pulmonary circulation brings carbon dioxide from the tissues to be exhaled and takes up oxygen from the air in the pulmonary alveoli to carry it to the heart and the rest of the body. Because the body stores almost no oxygen, interruption of respiration by asphyxiation, drowning, or chest muscle paralysis for more than a few minutes can cause death. Disorders affecting respiration include allergy, asthma, bronchitis, emphysema, pneumonia, and tuberculosis. See also respiratory system; respiratory therapy
The sum total of metabolic processes associated with conversion of stored (chemical) energy into kinetic (physical) energy for use by an organism
A process by which gaseous exchange -oxygen and carbon dioxide-takes place between an organism and the surrounding medium
Process of exchanging oxygen from the air for carbon dioxide from the body; includes the mechanical process of breathing, gas exchange, and oxygen and carbon dioxide transport to and from the cells
A process by which all living creatures take in oxygen from the air or water, oxidize it, and combine it with nutrients in the body to produce energy Carbon dioxide and water vapor are then released as by-products
The cellular process by which sugars and other organic compounds are broken down to release stored energy and to obtain carbon skeletons used in the growth and maintenance of the cell
artificial respiration
The manual or mechanical forcing of air into the lungs of a person who is not breathing in order to maintain life
{a} serving for respiration
artificial respiration
Artificial respiration is the forcing of air into the lungs of someone who has stopped breathing, usually by blowing through their mouth or nose, in order to keep them alive and to help them to start breathing again. She was given artificial respiration and cardiac massage. A procedure used to restore or maintain respiration in a person who has stopped breathing. The method uses mechanical or manual means to force air into and out of the lungs in a rhythmic fashion. a way of making someone breathe again when they have stopped, by blowing air into their mouth. Breathing induced by any of several techniques in a person who has stopped or is having difficulty breathing. It consists chiefly of keeping the air passage open and inducing inhalation and exhalation. It does not include chest compressions to maintain circulation (see cardiopulmonary resuscitation). The primary method is mouth-to-mouth breathing, in which the rescuer breathes into the victim's mouth, with pauses to allow exhalation
artificial respiration

artificial respiration
breathing which is caused by a ventilator, breathing by a life-support machine
cellular respiration
The series of metabolic processes by which living cells produce energy through the oxidation of organic substances
external respiration
The exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide between the environment and respiratory organs such as gills or lungs
internal respiration
The metabolic process by which living cells absorb oxygen and release carbon dioxide
