Oxygen is absorbed through the alveoli in the lungs. The alveoli are tiny air sacs that are composed of a single layer of cells. These cells are composed of a thin membrane that is extremely permeable. The oxygen diffuses into the blood stream where it is transported to the cells to be utilized.

Alveoli are found in the lungs and are the place where gas exchange between the air we breathe and our blood takes place. The walls of the alveoli are made up of a single layer of cells, called epithelial cells. The very thin walls of these cells are very permeable to gases.

The alveoli are where oxygen and carbon dioxide are exchanged between the air in your lungs and your blood. The walls of the alveoli are very thin, which allows them to be more efficient at absorbing oxygen. They are also permeable, so they can easily let oxygen enter and carbon dioxide exit the alveoli.

The alveoli are the tiny air sacs in the lungs that are responsible for absorbing oxygen into the bloodstream and expelling carbon dioxide. In order to be able to absorb oxygen in the environment, the alveoli are full of capillaries which bring fresh oxygen-rich blood to the alveoli.

Oxygen is absorbed through the alveoli in the lungs. The alveoli are the tiny sacs in the lungs where the transfer of gases between the alveoli and the blood takes place. They are adapted for this function by having extremely thin walls so gases can easily diffuse between the alveoli and the blood.
