    lame mans terms, as far as the respiratory tract goes, the air passes through the bronchies and travel into the lungs where they go to get oxygennated and release the co2 out of the system. deoxygenated blood travels into the right atrium into the right ventricle where it passes into the supior vena cava to the lungs, then oxygenated blood travels into the left atirum into the left ventricle where it travels to the body via the aorta.

    the digestive tract is composed of similar mucus muscle that absorbs nutrients and toxins. theres smooth muscle in the digestive tract.
