 Genioglossus Muscle

 

allows you to stick out your tongue

this muscle be relaxed with leision of hyoglossal

epiglottis

5

the depression the probe is going in

the ventricle

6

above the ventricle

false vocal cords

 between the thyroid and

arytenoid cartilages

 

ensure complete closure of the airway

levator palati muscle

more superifical and posterioly located

9

levator palati muscle

 

 

innervated by vagus

10

anterior and more deep than levator palti muscle

 

innervated by mandibular n. of trigem

11

uvula

innervated by vagus

22

piriform recess

23

on posterior surface of larynx

Posterior Cricoarytenoid Muscle 

 

abducts the vocal cords

****allow more or less air to go down into the trachea

innervated by recurrent laryngeal n.

24

soft palate

from the secondary palate

25

Torus Tubarius

base of the cartilaginous portion of the eustachian tube

26

What are 5 and 6?

5 = torus tubarius; 6 = salpingopharyngeal fold

27

salpingopharyngeal fold

saplingealpharyngeal

29

pirform recess

30

sulcus teminalis

V-shaped groove which marks the separation between the anterior two-thirds and posterior third of the tongue. 

31

inferior laryngeal nerve

general visceral efferent

 

Motor fibers to the intrinsic muscles of the larynx

 

 

 nerve of the 6th pharyngeal arch.

32

What is this and what is its functions?

ARYTNEOID MUSCLE

involved in the opening and closing of  rima glottidis

and in the production of vocal sounds

33

Aryepiglottic Fold 

34

what nerve is running with the superior laryngeal artery here?

internal laryngeal n. 

has GSA

if thiis was peirced, cause loss of cough reflex.
