Deviated septum A nasal cavity that is closed off by a septum
Ciliated Mucous Membrane Lines the nasal cavities, and filters bacteria, smoke, and anything foreign.
Sneeze A deep breathing in and a blast of air up through the nasal cavities.
Hard Palate (Anterior) A bone that seperates the nasal cavity from the Oral cavity
Soft Palate Prevents food from entering the nasal cavitiy by moving up and down.
Uvula The muscle tisue that ends in a projection
Pharynx Five inch long muscular tube, lined with ciliated membrane. (Control center for nything entering the mouth)
Larynx Contains the vocal chors and the glottis
Glottis The last action the body takes to prevent substances from entering the lungs
Trachea Passageway from Larynx to Bronchi
Bronchi Brings CO2 to the mouth/nose to be expelled.
Lungs A structure for the exchange of gases b/t the atmosphere and the blood of an organism.
Bronchial Tubes Smaller subdivisions of the Bronchi
Bronchioles Smallest passageway ending to the Alveoli
Pleura Membrane that lines the thoracc cavity on the lungs to prevent friction
External respiration Everything that occurs from the air to the alveoli
Internal respiration Air from the blood cells to the blood
Cellular Respiration Converting food to water, CO2, Energy, and ATP
Inspiration Filling lungs with air
Expiration Forcing air out of lungs
Tidal volume Normal ar quantity consumed in a breath
Hemoglobin Red oxgen found in the blood
Inspiration center Nerve cells drawing air into the lungs
Expiratory Groups of nerve cells responsible for expiration
Yawning Deep inspiration supplying fresh air
Carbon Dioxide Bi-product gas as a result of cellular respiration
Diaphragm Muscle responsible for breathing
Hering-Breuer Reflex Prevents lungs from tearing
