How to use "Vent" in context?

The human respiratory system uses the windpipe and the nose to intake and expel air. Each breath is initiated by the diaphragm and the stomach muscles contract, driving the air into the lungs. Once in the lungs, the air is divided into gasping segments by the ribcage and forced into the bronchi, which deliver the air to the smaller air sacs of the lungs. The air sacs deliver the oxygen rich air to the alveoli, where carbon dioxide and other gasses are expelled.
