Duration: 2 hours
Whether we're awake or asleep, we don't have to think about breathing - it's so vital to life that it happens automatically. Each day, we breathe about 20,000 times, and by the time we're 70 years old, we will have taken at least 600 million breaths. With this course you will learn the function of the respiratory system, the anatomy of the lungs and the airways, the physiology of the breathing, measures of lung capacity and function, VO2max.
