In humans, lungs are the major respiratory organ. Internally, lungs are divided into numerous sac like structures called as alveoli. These alveoli (sing. alveolus) are thin walled and are the major site for exchange of gases. They take up carbon dioxide from the deoxygenated blood and fill it with oxygen.
