Anatomy respiratory

conducting portionarea of the respiratory passageways that extends from the opening of the nasal cavity to the smallest bronchioles conducting portion
incomplete portion of C shaped cartilages are located posterior of the tracheal cartilages, to permit the esophagus to bulge anteriorly into the tracheal lumen in transient fashion to permit a large bolus to pass significance of C shaped cartilages reinforcing tracheal rings OK!
what is shared by the digestive and respiratory systems? OK? pharynx OK!
area of the respiratory system that includes the larynx and respiratory tree OK? lower respiratory tract OK!
chamber posterior to the uvula and base of the tongue oropharynx !
fissures divide the lungs into lobes
false vocal folds are also called vistibular folds
together, epithelium and lamina propria of the respiratory tract constitute mucous membrane
structures that form the respiratory membrane: Type 1 alveolar cell and basement membrane of alveolar epithelium and capillary walls
during extreme exertion, inspiration may be aided by serratus anterior and levator scapulae
ridge found at the bifurcation of the trachea is called carina
surfactant functions to reduce surface tension in the fluid coating alveolar surfaces to prevent alveolar collapse.
compared with the primary bronchus, right primary bronchus is wider & steeper less resistant to air flow more prone to blockage
most important skeletal muscles involved in making normal relaxed respiratory movements include diaphragm and external & internal intercostal muscles
superior and inferior lobes of the left lung are separated by the oblique fissure
curving anterior surface of the lungs is called costal surface
secondary bronchi are also termed __________ lobar bronchi
each tertiary bronchus leads to one brochopulmonary segment
the middle lobar bronchus is found in the right lung only
first passage way of the respiratory portion of the respiratory tract is called respiratory bronchiole
