includes all structures of the respiratory system up to (but not including) the respiratory bronchioles conducting zone
the conducting zone ends at the _____ _____ terminal bronchioles
the site of gas exchange respiratory zone
the end part of the respiratory tree respiratory zone
the respiratory zone starts at the _____ _____ respiratory bronchioles
provides an airway for respiration; moistens and warms air; filters inhaled air nose
nostrils anterior nares

passageway from back of mouth (fauces) oropharynx
passageway for both air & food laryngopharynx
continuous with the esophagus & larynx laryngopharynx
3 functions of the larynx 1. voice production 2. provides an open airway 3. routes air & food into the proper channels

potential space between the visceral and parietal pleurae pleural cavity
___ help divide the thoracic cavity pleurae
surface that abuts the ribs costal surface
superior tip of each lung apex
inferior surface of lungs base
base of the lungs diaphragmatic surface
