Exchange of respiratory gases, i.e. oxygen and carbon dioxide occurs between the blood and tissues. 

In tissues, oxygen is used up for their activities and carbon dioxide is released. The blood from lungs has high concentration of oxygen and low concentration of carbon dioxide. Due to this, difference in concentration of oxygen and carbon dioxide, the exchange of gases takes place between tissue and blood.
