It depends blood doesnt go into the lungs but if your talking about how does blood travel threw lungs its by veins.

Oxygen never travels from blood to the lungs. Oxygen either goes from the lungs to the blood, or carbon dioxide goes from the blood into the lungs to be exhaled.

The condition of deficient oxygen is hypoxia, and the condition of no oxygen is anoxia. Blood cells are aerobic so they need oxygen to survive. If you have below normal oxygen levels, you're not providing your blood with its fuel; you're basically starving your blood cells. Blood delivers oxygen to your tissues before returning to your lungs to fill up again. So if your blood isn't getting enough oxygen, neither will any other part of your body.

The lungs would collapse in a medical condition known as pneumothorax.

Blood leaving the lungs is oxygenated
