They are: Inspiration or inhalation and Expiration or exhalation. The breathing mechanism involves the action of the respiratory muscles, which causes air to move into and out of the lungs. Moving air into the lungs is known as inhalation, or inspiration, and moving air out is called exhalation, or expiration.
