How to use "Respire" in context?

The act of breathing is one of the most fundamental needs of humans. Without it, we would quickly die. Breathing is also a complex process that requires the coordination of many bodily functions. When we breathe, our chests rise and fall in synchronization with the rhythm of our heart.

The process of breathing begins with the air sacs in our lungs. These sacs are filled with air and when we inhale, the air pressure inside the sacs increases. This increase in pressure causes the ribs in our chest to push the air out of our lungs.
