    • oxygen poor blood
  21. define artieries
    • carries blood to the heart to body cells
    • oxygen-rich blood
  22. define emphysema
    a 2 probs dia resp sys
    alveoil are damaged and cant exchange oxygen and co2
  23. define asthma
    2 probs dia resp sys
    bronchioles narrow and make it hard to breathe
