The word respiratory is used as an adjective for a phenomenon that is connected with breathing. There are a lot of words that can be formed by associating this word with another one. The system in our body that enables us to breathe is called the respiratory system and if our body has some disease that makes it difficult for us to breathe we can call that disease with the name of the respiratory disease.

There are several other variants of the word and all of them are formed of only one word which is 'respire' and the meaning it conveys is that of to breathe. There are some other words also like respirator, respiration and respirometer that can trace their root in the same word and more or less convey the same idea.
