Human torso with organs, The Cage

Anatomical diagram of Human organs

The respiratory system, or pulmonary system or oxy recyclatory system, was the organ system that involved in exchange of gases between an organism and its environment. The speed of one's respiration was referred to as respiratory rate or breathing rate. (ENT: "Terra Nova"; TOS: "The Naked Time"; Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home)

In 2153, the respiration of a Borg drone was among the biometric data collected by a team of researchers in the Arctic Circle. (ENT: "Regeneration")

The respiratory system of a Talaxian was directly linked, in various points, to their spinal cord. (VOY: "Phage")

The Android Lieutenant Commander Data also had a functional respiratory system with the purpose to maintain thermal control of his main systems. Data explained this to Doctor Julian Bashir after he noticed that Data was breathing. (TNG: "Birthright, Part I")

In 2370, in the "Anatomical Scan - 9861" for Juliana Tainer, the oxy recyclatory system was listed under lungs coronal plane portion of the graphic. For her oxy recyclatory system, it was noted that it was below 27 bpm. (TNG: "Inheritance")
