two pairs of vocal folds are found in the larynx. Which pair are the true vocal cord (superior or inferior)

Thyroid cartilage (laringeal prominance), epiglottis, cricoid cartilage, arytenoid cartilage

name the specific cartilages in the larynx that correspond to the followig descriptions: Forms of adam's apple______a lid for the larynx______shaped like a signet ring_______vocal cord attachment____

mantein the patency (permeabilidad) of the trachea. protection.

what is the significance of the fact that the human trachea is reinforced with cartilaginous rings?

because the let a space for the esophagus expand in the trachea.

why the cartilaginous ring of the trachea are incomplete posteriorly?

The pleural membrane also helps to keep the two lungs away from each other and air tight, thus if one lung is punctured and collapses due to an accident, the other pleural cavity will still be air tight, and the other lung will work normally

whas is the function of the pleural membranes

1. war incoming air, moist incomin air,filtering incoming air.

name three functions of the nasal cavity mucosa

Left, right, left, right

the following questions refer to the primary bronchi: which is longer_______, larger in diameter______, more horizontal________which more commonly traps a foreign object that has entered the respiratory passageways________

Conducting zone of respiratory system. nostril, nasal cavity, internal nares, nasopharinx, oropharins, thrachea, 1st bronchus, 2nd bronchus, 3th bronchus, branchide, terminal branchide, respiratory branchiole, alveolar ducts, alveolar sacs, alveoli, wall of alveolus, intestitium, wall of pulmonaty capillaries and pulmonary capillaries blood.

trace a molecule of oxigen from the nostrils to the pulmonary capillaries of the lungs and name of the system. start with nostril


connects the larynx to the primary bronchi


site of tonsil


food passageway posterior to the trachea


covers the glottis during swallowing of food


contains the vocal cord

phrenic nerve

nerve that activates the diaphragm durng inpiration

parietal pleura

pleural layer lining the walls of the thorax


site from which oxygen enters the pulmonary blood

pharyngotympanic tube

connects the middle ear to the nasopharynx


opening between the vocal fold


increases air turbulence in the nasal cavity


separates the oral cavity from the nasal cavity

outside (next to thorax) parietal, and inside visceral, in between pleura fluid.

name of two layers of pleura membrane

from the conducting zone of respiratory system: nostril, nasal cavity, internal nares, nasopharinx, oropharins, thrachea, 1st bronchus, 2nd bronchus, 3th bronchus, branchide, terminal branchide.Because in this area there is not gas exchange.

what portion of the respiratory system are referred to as anatomical dead space and why is called this way.

external respiration

gas exchange at the respiratory membrane

internal respiration

gas exchange at the systemic capillaty bed

cellular respiration

gas exchange at the cellular level
