This structure prevents food or water from entering the trachea.
During swallowing, which structure rises?
These are triangular pieces of mostly hyaline cartilage located at the posterior and superior border of the cricoid cartilage.
Pitch is controlled by
This is located anterior to the esophagus and carries air to the bronchi.
This is the primary gas exchange site.

Which of the below tissues forms the exchange surfaces of the alveolus?
These are cells of the alveoli that produce surfactant.
This is direction of diffusion of gases at capillaries near systemic cells.
This is direction of diffusion of gases at the alveoli of the lungs.
Exhalation begins when
This means the lungs and the chest wall expand easily.
The conducting airways with the air that does not undergo respiratory exchange are known as the
This is the sum of the residual and the expiratory reserve volume.
