Gas exchange is the process of absorbing inhaled atmospheric oxygen molecules into the bloodstream and offloading carbon dioxide from the bloodstream into the atmosphere. This process is completed in the lungs through the diffusion of gases from areas of high concentration to areas of low concentration.
