1

What are the parts of the upper respiratory tract?

Right and left nasal cavitiesoral cavityNas-, oro- and laryngo- pharynxlarynx

2

What are the parts of the lower respiratory tract?

TracheaRight and left main bronchiLobar bronchisegmental bronchibronchiolesalveoli

3

At what level does the larynx become the trachea and the pharynx become the oesophagus?

C6 vertebral level (where the URT becomes the LRT)

4

What are the 2 parts of the chest (thorax)?

Chest walls (part of the body wall/ soma)Chest cavity

5

What are the parts of the chest wall?

SkinFascia (superficial and deep)Skeletalmuscle]Bone/ jointsParietal pelura

6

What are the functions of the chest wall?

Protests the chest's internal organsmakes the movements of breathingIncludes the breast tissue for lactation

7

What are the 3 parts of the chest cavity?

MediastinumRight and left neural cavities

8

What are the 2 layers of pleura?

Parietal pleuraVisceral pleura

9

What is the parietal pleura adherent to? (2)

The structures of the mediastinumThe internal aspect of the chest wall

10

What does the pleurae secrete into the pleural cavity?What is the purpose of this? (2)

Pleural fluidActs as a lubricantProvides surface tension

11

What is a lung lobe?

The area of lung that each of the lobar bronchi supply with air

12

What is a bronchopulmonary segment?

The area of lung lobe that each of the segmental bronchi supply with air

13

How many lobes and what are the names of the lung lobes in each lung?

Right:Superior, middle and inferior lobesLeft: superior and inferior lobes

14

How many bronchopulmonary segments does each lung have?

10

15

How do true ribs attach to the sternum?

Via their costal cartilage (ribs 1-7)

16

How do false ribs attach to the sternum?

Via their costal cartilage above the sternum (8-10)

17

How do the floating ribs attach to the sternum?

No attachment (11 and 12)

18

At what rib level is the sternal angle?

2

19

Where is the costal groove located and what is contained in this?

Inferiorly on deep surface of ribsIntercostal NVB

20

What part of the rib articulates with the body of the vertebra of the same number and the body of the vertebra superiorly?

The head of the rib

21

What part of the rib articulates with the transverse process of the vertebra of the same number?

The rib tubercle

22

What is located between the head of the rib and the rib tubercle

The neck of the rib

23

What is the main part of the rib called?

The body/ shaft of the rib

24

What is the part of the rib called where the shaft subtly changes direction?

The rib angle

25

What are the 3 "joints of breathing" and where are these located?

Costovertebral (rib to vertebra)Costochondral (rib to costal cartilage)Sternocostal (sternum to costal cartilage)

26

Names of the 3 layers of skeletal muscles which are located between the ribs and within the intercostal spaces?

External intercostal muscles (don't extend all the way anteriorly - fibres = as if putting hands in pockets)Internal intercostal muscles (fibres are pointing towards sternum)Innermost intercostal muscles (fibres are horizontal)

27

What are the main muscles of breathing?

The diaphragm (skeletal muscle)3 layers of intercostal muscles

28

What provides arterial blood supply to the intercostal spaces?

Anterior - Internal thoracic artery (courses vertically either side of the deep surface of the sternum)Posterior - thoracic aorta (bilateral branches)

29

What drains the intercostal spaces?

Posterior = azygous veinAnterior = internal thoracic veins (2 course either side of the deep surface of the sternum)

30

What provides arterial blood for the lung tissue?

Bronchial arteries (Branches from the thoracic aorta's anterior surface)
