Which organ removes carbon dioxide from the body?

Excretion
Organ(s)Function
LungsRemove carbon dioxide.
SkinSweat glands remove water, salts, and other wastes.
Large intestineRemoves solid waste and some water in the form of feces.
KidneysRemove urea, salts, and excess water from the blood.

Also to know is, what removes carbon dioxide from the body?

Excess carbon dioxide must be removed from the body to stop it reaching toxic levels. As the blood flows through the lungs, excess carbon dioxide passes out of the blood and into the alveoli by diffusion. It is then removed from the lungs when we exhale (breathe out).

What would happen if carbon dioxide was not removed from the body?

Respiratory failure also can occur if your lungs can't properly remove carbon dioxide (a waste gas) from your blood. Too much carbon dioxide in your blood can harm your body's organs. Both of these problems—a low oxygen level and a high carbon dioxide level in the blood—can occur at the same time.
