Alveolar Sacs

12

What is the function of the Respiratory Zone?

Gas exchange

13

What is the function of Ciliated Cells in the Nose?

Moves mucous down to the Pharynx for digestion

14

Describe the structure and location of the Pharynx (Throat).

Funnelled tube behind Nasal Cavity and above Larynx

15

What are the functions of the Pharynx (Throat)?

Passageway for air and food
Chamber for sounds
Houses tonsils

16

What is the Epiglottis?

Flap protecting top of Larynx

19

What structure is inferior to the larynx?

Trachea (Windpipe)

20

Describe the structure of the Trachea (Windpipe).

Hyaline cartilage c-shaped rings lined with mucous membrane

21

What is the function of Cilia Cells in the Trachea?

Sweeps particulate down Pharynx

22

The Bronchi starts at ____ dividing into right and left primary bronchi, which travels into ______________.

T5 / L and R lungs

23

What is a Carina.

Sensitive area where Trachea divides which causes a cough reflex

27

What is the function of Alveolar Cells?

Gas exchange and keep cells moist (fluid secretion)

28

What is the function of Surfactant in Alveolar Cells?

Reduces fluid tension of fluid and reduces Alveoli to collapse

29

Remove dust

30
