What is the opening to the larynx?
What is the opening from the aditus to the vestibular folds?
What is between the true and false vocal fold?
What is below the true vocal folds?
From the epiglottis to top fo crichoid cartilage is the (blank)
Will the aditus change size with swallowing?
What is another name for the vestibular fold?
false vocal cord
What is the ventricle important for?
Does anythin contract the vocal folds?
no, the vibration of the vocal folds is caused by air moving past them (like a bassoon reed)
The area below vocal folds is the infraglottic cavity which takes you to the caudel end of the (Blank).
What is below the infraglottic cavity?
What is the space between the epiglottis and the tongue?
there is a very large cartilagenous mass called the (blank) which is a 2/3rd shield that is open (anteriorly/posteriorly)
Which is more superior, the thryoid cartilage or cricoid cartilage?
What is on top of the cricoid cartilage?
muscular process, arytenoids, vocal process
The vocal process has a (blank) that attaches between the vocal process and the anterior border of the thyroidcartilage.
Wat makes up a good part of the true vocal cords?
the vocal ligament
What does the muscular process do?
it has muscles attached to it which allows for the opening and closing of the vocal cords
Describe the orientation of the cricoid cartilage?
it is a complete ring with the posterior part being taller than the anterior part
What is between the thyroid cartilage and cricoid cartilage?
What is the core of the cricothyroid membrane made up of? What do the free edges of the cricothyroid membrane make up?
has an elastic core
part of the vocal ligament
Why type of joint is the cricoarytenoid joint and cricothyroid joint?
multiaxial synovial joint
What is the hole in the thyrohyoid membrane for?
it allows for the passageof the internal branch of the superior pharyngeal branch of the vagus
If you rock the cricocartilage forward towards the thyrocartilage,what will happen to the vocal ligament?
it will get tight
Who has a shorter vocal ligament, men or women?
Insie the larynx there is a membranous mucous lining membrane that is called the (blank). This runs between the lateral aspect of the epiglotti and the arytenoid cartilage.
What does the quadrangular membrane function in?
keep food from going into the aditus
What contains the cuneiform cartilage?
What makes up the true vocal fold?
the conus elasticus
