The respiratory system (also respiratory apparatus, ventilatory system) is a biological system consisting of specific organs and structures used for gas exchange in animals and plants. In land animals the respiratory surface is internalized as linings of the lungs.
Human respiratory system, the system in humans that takes up oxygen and expels carbon dioxide. The lungs serve as the gas-exchanging organ for the process of respiration. Encyclopædia Britannica, Inc. The upper airway system comprises the nose and the paranasal cavities (or sinuses), the pharynx (or throat), and partly also the oral cavity, since it may be used for breathing. The lower airway system consists of the larynx, the trachea, the stem bronchi, and all the airways ramifying intensively within the lungs, such as the intrapulmonary bronchi, the bronchioles, and the alveolar ducts. For respiration, the collaboration of other organ systems is clearly essential.

Respiratory system is the system of respiratory passages, lungs and respiratory muscles of human body. Muscles of respiration also form a component of respiratory system but there importance is rather little as compared to lungs and respiratory passages. Respiratory system is responsible for exchange of gases between the human body and the surroundings. In the process of exchange of gases, human body gains oxygen and gets rid of carbon dioxide. Lungs: Lungs are the organs of human body where gaseous exchange take place. Human beings have two lungs known as the right and left lungs. Lungs are soft, spongy and very elastic.
