Bronchi is basically an organ from the respiratory system. It acts as a caliber for the airway by conducting air in to the lungs.

The bronchi is formed from the Trachea which is the wind pipe. In fact the trachea divides into two bronchi, one at the left and one at the right. These bronchi then keep on dividing until they form alveolar ducts. At the end of each alveolar duct an alveolar sac is attached. Alveolus is the place where exchange of gas takes place.

So as a matter of fact bronchi does not support any exchange of gases inside the lungs. It just supports the passage of air from the windpipe to the alveoli in the lungs where actual exchange of air takes place.

The main functions of the Bronchi in the human body are conditioning of the air that enters the lungs because the body ahs a specific temperature that is necessary for the proper functioning. The air that enters the lungs is generally colder than the insides so it is warmed in the bronchi to the same temperature of the body. It also moistens the air entering the lungs so that it does not cause dryness and becomes readily soluble in the blood. It has ciliated cells that serve the purpose of removing all the dust and other harmful particles so that they do not become a part of the blood stream. It also has cells that release hormones that are important in regulating the air passage ways.

The functions of the bronchi include being a conduit for air during inhalation and exhalation. Secrete mucous to keep the membranes moist in order to trap invading particles. Provide a structural support system for the bronchioles, alveoli and connective tissue.

A bronchus (plural bronchi, adjective bronchial) is a caliber of airway in the respiratory tract that conducts air into the lungs.[1] No gas exchange takes place in this part of the lungs.
